This weekend ...'Cinders' went to a Ball!!
Ladies... here is my 'frugal' vintage outfit for the evening...
The dress was Roman Originals clearance 18 months ago - I paid £15 for it.
The jacket was Alexon clearance 10 years ago
In this rather severe-looking 'selfie' you can see my jewellery a bit more clearly.
My earrings are 1950s vintage from a little stall in Stratford upon Avon
(a couple of pounds because no-one else buys screw or clip earrings nowadays....).
My necklace is also 1950s from a market stall in London in 2003
(in the days before vintage was stylish and this sort of thing was seriously cheap).
This bracelet is one of my prized vintage possessions...
It's an American Coro design from the 1960s. I bought it on e-bay for a couple of pounds.
The bag is from the 1940s. I found it in a vintage clothes shop in Welshpool last August.
Mark bought it for me as Christmas present and I often take it out in the evenings.
(It looks amazing with one of those £10 Primark dresses, heavier vintage jewellery, a little black jacket, black leggings and boots)
We went to a 'Summer Ball' in the function suite at Worcester Cricket Ground.
There were about 150 people there so the event raised £1900.00 for the local cancer hospice.
It was great fun catching up with people that we haven't seen for a while.. and getting to know a few new people too.
I've got to admit that I was shattered this morning though...
I'm not great at late nights really...!
