Some poor photography and some posing....

I do apologise now for my poor photography but I want to try and share more of my wonderful clothes and accessories with you.

I love my collection; I wear vintage/vintage styles everyday and favour 40's - 60's, and am a real rockabilly at heart!

I have some fab items as I have been collecting for years now and I will try to show you more.

I wear a brooch every day apart from boring cleaning days when  am in my slob gear!! lol! :) I love red lippy which I am not wearing in some of these pics as I put it on before I walk out the door and I took pics in the bedroom!

I love bright colours, lots of flowers and I don't really do subtle!!

I work alongside another Jo and they differentiate between us by referring to me as Retro Jo! :D

So here's some stuff from the last week;

 Casual outfit to go and do errands in town. My pin curls are hiding under that headscarf!

Pedal Pushers - vintage from charity shop/thrifted
Vest - Primark
Shoes - Shoe zone
Leopard Print Headscarf - vintage from eBay
Assorted bangles - vintage from various charity shops/thrift stores

This is one of my favourite brooches, a diamante double bass. Unfortunately the bling does not photograph well! This was a total bargain - £2 from a little antique store in Chepstow, Wales.

 Sunglasses - online but can't remember where from!

This is what I wore last Saturday night for my friends birthday meal.
Dress - Collectif
Belt - Primark

Shoes - New Look. They are really high! And I do love high shoes!! :D

(Minus red lippy)
Fascinator - 50p Primark sale!

This was another work outfit;

Dress - vintage from eBay
Shoes - Primark
Cardigan - Primark
Brooch - Also £2 from antique store in Chepstow! Its some type of coated metal!

 (need lippy again!!)

Another work outfit...

Hairflowers - Primark
Butterfly - Gift
Brooch - eBay
Cardigan - Primark
 After seeing Charlotte's post on dangle pins over at Tuppence Ha'penny I have been looking non stop on eBay. This is a modern one but I had to have it, being a very keen gardener!
 Shoes - New Look

Dress - Vintage from charity shop/thrift store.

I am currently wearing a 60's casual dress, my slippers, and my hair kinda resembles a birds nest! Its been a busy week and I am enjoying a lazy day!

Have a great weekend lovelies!!
