Frock Friday- 40s Fun



I've been eyeing off this fab 40s crepe dress for a while now. It's been hanging in the laundry, teasing me with its rather small waist size, and I was determined to get into it!




This is the dress I showed you a bit of in my last post, and I must admit I did these photos a few days ago...yes, I am a FOF cheat! It's way too hot to be wearing this kind of outfit all day, as I write this it's 10am and already 33 degrees, for the next few months it'll be a case of 'get the photos done quickly in the morning before I pass out from heatstroke'.



Sharpest clubbing elbows in the business. Guaranteed.


Just for fun I've donned my favourite gloves, bought at a theatres' costume department sell-off (next year I'm insisting that Desiree comes with me!). Off-white lycra trimmed with purple taffeta...perfect.




I've got a busy day ahead, full of appointments with VB, I'll be back later on to see all your frocks...you WILL be wearing one, won't you??
