I’m very excited to have received a blogger award from Alex at odd socks and pretty frocks and Helga at helga von trollop, thank you very much ladies. Both have awesome and inspirational blogs so make sure you check them out.
So I have to share with you my idea of a fantasy bag, which is really tough because I’m huge lover of bags. I would like a really good quality bag, made from beautiful leather which would stand the test of time. A Gladstone or a Mulberry would do nicely thank you very much but both are well out of my price range sadly. Both of these bags are gorgeous and I would be a very proud owner of either.
So I went to a jumble sale last night Hurrah! I arrived at 6.15pm and there were already 3 others in queue, lots of friendly chit chat until the doors opened at 6.30pm and it was war, elbows flying everywhere while bin bags being filled, it always makes laugh that how at the table it is anything goes, but away from the table everyone is polite, chatty and generally having a wonderful time. Quite bizarre but I absolutely love it. Here are a few things I picked up:
Green flowery dress – 30p (see outfit below)
John Lewis bag – 50p (still had the tags on!)
Floral Teapot – 20p
I really love the floral style of the teapot, I saw lots of tea cups and trinkets at the carboot on Sunday but Boyfriend was on hand to pull me away, he hates this stuff but like I recently blogged I'd fill the house with the stuff, it's just so pretty. I also picked up a floral Laura Ashley Skirt which I’m going to attempt to shorten, there has got to be something me and my limited skills can to do rescue it?! (30p) or maybe it needs to be ebayed?
And if you’re still reading after all that…here is my outfit today which is totally impractical due to the rainy weather:
I’m loving this dress, I have no idea where it is from originally or even what size it is because there is no label. I’ve mixed it up with blues today but as there are hints of yellow in the pattern I think I’ll try it out with my yellow tights next time.

Lots of love
