Frock Friday- Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3



I'm thinking of wearing this outfit to a big antique fair we're doing in ten days' time, so these pics I quickly snapped off are effectively test shots.
I picked up this 60s lurex number a while ago and haven't worn it yet, I love it (and it's fringed belt!) but it's not a definite for the fair yet.



This 4-day fair will be the biggest and most important fair for us thus far, so obviously I need to get the outfits right!



I won't be wearing these shoes btw, no no no.
Nor will I be sporting this hair (it's Xmas, right, so I'm doing some cooking today), but I haven't quite decided on the best hat or hair for this dress...maybe some version of a beehive, or a big white fluffy hat, a la Janis Joplin??


Suggestions welcome!


I'm off to finish making red velvet fudge, cross fingers this batch turns out...the first one was an epic fail. Woops!

I think it's a winner especially if it's comfortable! It fits you really nicely.

It looks gorgeous (I bet you're sick of me saying that). I'm liking the sound of the white fluffy Janis Joplin hat very much.

Good luck with the red velvet fudge. My attempts at baking (do you bake fudge?) are legendarily rubbish. xx

I'd say a big beehive, false lashes and cat flicky eyeliner and some white patent go-go boots!
It's fab, you know I love lurex and the fringed belt is the icing on the cake. x

I'm going to have to agree with Vix on the styling!
That dress is just fabulous - wear it, wear it!
Hope the fudge worked out, second batch around...
Lots of love to you all this Christmas, Kitty. xxxxxxxxxxx

Wonderful dress and I absolutely back the beehive. Vix is a goddess with her suggestions and stylings. The dress fits you perfectly.

Is this fair at Jupiters?
