This is my old friend Candy - she's a 1980s turquoise, silk, sequinned top and being a showgirl, she's quite a show-off.
And common as muck.
Today she's shacked up with my leather shorts from Bitching and Junkfood.
She has a mind of her own.
Candy has a way of turning up at inappropriate occasions such as work-related press conferences and oh-so-serious interviews and always manages to draw a smile and a definite softening of my subject's demeanour.
A true friend indeed.
Candy hasn't been out to play for a while and today she's making the most of being on holiday.
I kept the accessories pretty low-key;)).
I'm holding a 1960s white and gold beaded evening bag and wearing assorted old rings; a 1950s white, glass bead, concertina bracelet; 1940s sunglasses and blue feather earrings.
The shoes are leather clog sandals I picked up at a vintage store a few years ago.
When Candy and I first hooked up, it was a memorable day.
We found each other at a thrift store and it was love at first sight.
I only had to part with $10 so she could move in with me.
Life has never been quite the same.
