Abso-frockin-lutely!

I have circuses on the brain today in preparation of a circus costume exhibition I'm attending tomorrow.
The harlequin tights, black velvet dress and red wool cape feel like the perfect way to rev up for plenty of costume mania.


A beautifully sunny day but very cold ... so out come the gloves and a favourite cape ... eeeeeee!!




The Phoenix popped out with a fresh cuppa and snapped off these pics for me - can you tell?

Are you a Friday Frocker?

  25. Perfectly perfect! Those tights absolutely make the whole ensemble. You look fabulous. I have to do dress-up Saturdays as I've been confined to school uniform on Fridays - BUT, only for one more week and then I can wave goodbye to the uniform and recycle it. My frock for today was a vintage silk maxi Laura Ashley shirt dress. Great for swishing around and revising in!

  26. Your clothing is absolutely divine! <3 I love the sleeves of your top, and the beautiful cape!
