Can I play? I'm into 50's clothing and bright shoes :) also into jewellery in a big way!! I plan it all a week before to ensure it gets used/rotated. Very sad :giggle:

Step away from me lady, those waistlines are just way too high!

Now that is way too organised for me, I'm still guilty of ironing in the morning sometimes!

Where are the pics of the red dress?


Ha not got any action pics but did wear it out on Friday night. Vague smell to it tho which I was super self conscious about - think I will have to try some bicarb paste on it or maybe strip it with dishwasher tabs as if it was a nappy!!

I got it from Lovelys Vintage but actually ASOS marketplace is a great place for vintage, you can return most of it if t doesn't fit as it's vintage stores. I follow Lovely's VIntage and Madam Popoff on Twitter so they tweet when they have new stock. Martha;s closet is also good.

I'm going to lurk until I am back at my ideal weight (3 stone to go) but I will definitely need help then as I have been fat or pregnant for 3.5 years now so need some new inspiration.

ooo where did you do the personal shopper thing? I know they offered it the last time I was in John Lewis & it sounds like a good idea.


Have just received my 2 pairs of Levi's in the post over the weekend that I got while in London :)) The lady in the shop (Carnaby St) was amazing & made me try on about 20 pairs before I got to the right ones - I HATE shopping for jeans so I could have kissed her!!
