Hello there. Just a quick outfit post today. This is what I wore yesterday for an afternoon in town with my mum
It was Saturday afternoon to be precise. I hardly ever go into town for shopping these days. What with most of my clothes being bought online or in charity shops, I don't really need to.
One Saturday afternoon in Liverpool city centre quickly reminded me why I stopped bothering! It was heaving!
Mostly with groups of too cool for school teenagers in denim hotpants, opaques and Converse. Not that that's a bad thing. I remember when the highlight of my week was going into town with my friends on a Saturday afternoon and spending whatever pocket money I had on building up my CD collection from Liverpool's massive HMV store on Church Street, back in it's heyday, then buying tie dye t-shirts and Stargazer nail polish from Quiggins and, just so I could say I'd been there cos I was so cool, thumbing through the vinyl at another one of Liverpool's legendary stores, Probe Records, oh yeah, I knew the places to go!
Yesterday I settled for a quick scout around Primark followed by a fruit cooler and a slice of cake in Costa. Oh how times change!
I bought this 70's cotton tea dress from a lovely American seller on Etsy. It was one of those that didn't look much on the picture but I could tell that I'd absolutely love it.. and I was right. I teamed it up with an ex Dotty P's cardi bought on Ebay for a spot o' spring florals
The satchel is another new addition, also from Ebay
You can't beat a bit of nostril flarage

Cardi - Dotty P's via Ebay

Bag - Ebay seller
Didn't buy all that much in Primark, except for a shower curtain, some socks, and these sunnies...
...which I happen to think are the dogs danglers!
Isn't it amazing how a relatively small piece of plastic can make a girl so happy?!
Of course I'm not so optimistic as to think that sunglasses will be necessary for a UK summer, but as it happens, the Nations will be shortly be heading across the Channel for a little spell in sunny Bergerac. Perhaps to be followed up with a day or two in Disneyland Paris.
La France in the spring is a much different prospect, and I can't wait!
I'm sorting out all the spring florals and pastel goodness I can fit in my case
Speaking of spring flowers, I couldn't have found a more perfect You Tube clip to finish this post off with than this one
