I'm coming to the end of my week off, sadly, but have managed to fit quite a lot in.
On Thursday I met up with one of my best friends for a quick jaunt about town and a visit to famed haberdashers, MacCulloch and Wallis.
I first discovered this place way back when I was doing my millinery course (see earlier blog posts if you are interested) but never managed to make it there. I'm glad I finally did though, the place is a treasure trove of millinery basics and trims, fabrics of all kinds and oh my good lord the buttons!
After the visit I then had the pleasure of meeting My Vintage Dresser, her chap and another lovely chum, for a drink in posh old Holland Park.
I'm glad I had got myself suitably attired for such fine company:
1940's jacket in yellow, green and brown tweed with brown buttons, brown GAP 40's style trousers, Primark brown leather belt, 40's blouse with jet buttons, charity shop brooch and my lovely bakelite earrings.
Unfortunately I lost a single earring at some point in the day. I didn't realise until I got home. These things happen though. :-(
