The cardigan had teeny tiny bits of red lipstick on it that I noticed juuuuuust before I had to leave and it was too late to change, but I got the lipstick out later. Phew. I was worried that would stain, but it was ok. And the dress is made of a stiff fabric that marks when liquid touches it, so of course I spilled some of my first G&T before even a drop had touched my lips, and had a splodge on the front of the waist for the rest of the night. Thank goodness it a) is a lovely dark pub and b) I spent the rest of the evening sitting down, imbibing my following drinks with more success. And, more phews, the gin mark came out in the wash. Good good.

the vintage gold dress got worn!
So, the weekend before last, I found an occasion to wear my vintage gold dress. You know, the one that I found at a second hand shop that had been chopped, and tidied up the hem for. I wore it to visit a friend and then to John's birthday drinks at the pub, with my vintage cream cardigan with the sparkly bits – not to be confused with my other vintage cream cardigan with the sparkly bits, because those sparkly bits are very, very different – yes – and my vintage grey coat that has had a good time on this blog recently.
