You know those weeks where everything is just a bit pants? Well this week has been one of those and I've spent most of it grumpy and moaning (which is why it's been a bit quiet around here - sorry).
Yesterday was a particularly bad day, but it was brightened considerably by me treating myself to this beauty on the way home (yes I am that shallow):
|1950s Blue Spotty Dress - £35, Pop Boutique Bold Street|
|Detail of Dress|
Isn't it lovely? I love blue and I'm getting quite a collection of blue vintage dresses. I also love polka dots and I really need some more dresses with sleeves, so this was quite a find.
Although I adore blue, my absolute favourite colour is purple, with green coming in a close second. I own a couple of green 50s dresses but I've yet to find a purple one. There was a darling white 1950s dress with purple flowers in the same shop, which is probably the first purpley dress I've seen, but it was too small. Bah - the hunt continues!
Today I'm feeling a bit better - I managed to get quite a bit done on my Vintage Guide, but I keep making it more complicated and giving myself more to do, so it's taking longer!
I need to catch up with everyone else's blogs too, but that will have to wait until tomorrow as I can hardly keep my eyes open. I have been reading, but not commenting much. I didn't get much sleep last night because Her Loonyness was out until 5.45am and I had to keep an ear out to let her back in and I also had lots of weird dreams.
Anyway, tomorrow is going to involve a trip to town to the Vintage Shops (for research, you understand), which is going to be difficult as I'm quite skint. Or I might just stay in bed and ignore the mountain of housework I have to do. Ho hum.
Hope that wasn't too whiney and that your weeks have been better.
