Sunday drive....







Miss Daisy-Boo is back from the panel beaters and all back to her "pretty best". So driving Miss Daisy on Sunday seemed fitting.
This is an old favourite 50's dress I have had for years, and she is along way from her "pretty best". I am sure you sweet-peas have a vintage fave that is on the brink of going to vintage heaven.
Sunday was a little cold so I got to wear my great new late 60's linen jacket I brought a few weeks ago from Sallies, its a bit big for me but it was soooo coming home. Look at the great pattern and I love brown and blue together. Yay vintage is always so good.
Hope you had a "pretty best" weekend!

  7. An Austin 1300? Wow! That was made just down the road from me. I'm so happy you're a vintage car owner, too. Love that coat, it would have been a crime to have let it go. xxx

  9. Lovely frock, and the coat is a great find. I hope you can get a bit more wear out of your gorgeous frock before she goes to vintage heaven!
    Btw, thank you for commenting on my last post, I KNOW not all dealers are rude or grabby, and I KNOW you would be a delightful and generous customer! I suppose I am a dealer of sorts myself in a small way; I buy at charity shops and jumble sales and sell on Ebay at a profit. But I pay what I am asked to pay, I wouldn't haggle in a charity shop or at a jumble, and if something's too expensive for me to be able to make a profit, then I don't buy it and leave it for someone else. You're right, not all dealers are the same, and YOU, my dear Miss V, have both scruples and good manners!!! xxxxxxxxxxx
