I think the shoes came first in choosing this outfit.
How impractical for soggy, wet grass - but it just had to be done.
I haven't worn these wedges for ages.
I bought them about five years ago and thought they were going to be an expensive, regrettable, trendy item that would date after one or two seasons.
I still love them as much as the day I floated out of the shop with them.
It was a good lesson to learn - who gives a crap about whether they're the latest thing or not?
When it comes to shoes, if they make you feel like a horny toad, then work them.
I really wanted to get these shots done outdoors between the torrential downpours we're having - so I chose something happy to wear to perk me up after a tough day juggling the pennies around.
This is a 1970s old-stock dress I thrifted last year, with its original tag still attached.
I love wearing it - I feel like I should be strolling the streets of New Orleans in this get-up, with some crusty, old busker crooning passersby:).
I've added a 1940s fox collar, fishnets and bangles - of which my collection is s-l-o-w-l-y growing.
I want armloads like Nancy Cunard.
I've added my favourite Mona Lisa earrings which are starting to look a bit worse for wear, 1960s black mesh gloves and a 1960s gold plastic hair clip.
Butter wouldn't melt while wearing my Mary Janes;P.

Cheeky tip of the day: Dive into the back of your closet and style something, anything that you find there. After all, if it's in your closet, why aren't you wearing it? xoxo
