Frock Friday- For the Love of Lurex



Swish, swish, swish. 
There's nothing like a big, fun maxi to brighten up your day, is there?


And I really think I did brighten up the day of many passers-by as I ran around doing errands; the combination of the bright silver together with our insanely bright sun made a few look away and turn around again for another look.



Whether I made them snow-blind, horrified, or it was a simple case of side-eye, who knows?

Who cares?! I love my new maxi, end of story!


In unrelated news, I'm back into furniture mode with a vengeance. While I've been flat out with clothes and fairs the projects have been piling up and as of this week they're being tackled head on. I'll be back soon with lots of restored and revamped beauties to show you.

Have a lovely weekend whatever you get up to...but think of me sanding and painting my wee girly fingers to the bone, won't you?!

Hello, this is the first time you step on your blog and I really like.
You have a new follower!
Skip to visit me, I'd appreciate your views on my page .. about a project that is close to myheart. Starting with beautiful and unique pieces "Vintage", becomes all the mostunconventional and different from what's out there .. a way to go a bit counter, but definitely something that guarantees originality and style .. the style that everyone has within himself.

A hug ♥
