Oh, wrong book.
It was a cold and gloomy morning.
What better way to brighten up a cloudy day than by popping on a 1960s, orange, lurex, evening gown for Frock On A Friday!
One of the last charity shops in my local area to offer fairly reasonable prices had a half-price sale yesterday.
I bought this gown and a matching cape for $10.
It was cold enough for a fur so today I wore this jacket I bought for just $3 from the same op shop three years ago.
Yes, I got some odd looks but I'm used to being stared at like a zoo specimen - which I guess is to be expected as early as 8am huh?
You know, the Indian and Sri Lankan school mums and the Indian family that runs a local petrol station are about the only people who don't bat an eyelid at sequins and glitter that early in the day.
Isn't it great? I want to live in India and wear silver false eye lashes and shoulder-length earrings everyday.
I can't wait to wear the cape with other outfits - I mean, it's ORANGE! And SHINY!
I picked up the silk scarf for $2 this morning and decided it was just what I needed to wear immediately, plus the African beaded bracelets which were 50 cents each.
I spy with my little eye, something a little bit animal!
Ooh leopard-print tights go perfectly with orange lurex don't you think? hehe!
The shoes are Nine West green velvet wedges I scored on sale a few years ago.
Vix's pendant had another wearing and the 1950s, metallic, grey, granny beads and velvet bag were just screaming for a day out.
Have you got your frocks on yet sweeties?
