Sucker for nautical goods

Yes that's me. Guilty as charged.
Right after worshipping polkadots I am obsessed with anything nautical. I see it and I want to possess it. Badly.

This loverrrrly dress I found months ago at the Flitwick Originate Fayre in February - it cost a mere £3! I loved it straight away, obviously. It's an interesting dress - it has an (I think) expensive looking top with two golden sailor themed buttons at the back and a fairly long skirt but with a drawstring. I think it's very typically 80s does retro.

Ever since I took the shoulderpads out I love it even more. And it has pockets!

Heels would be better of course but I do a LOT of walking a day (I am talking about 3 hours at the minimum) so even wedges leave me sometimes crippled at night. These also very nautically looking red flats are from Primark about 5 years ago.


Attached is my 1940s bow brooch which I have shown several times before.

And the obligatory shots of my hair....




Ship ahoy!

fantastic outfit!! I know what you mean about having to do lots of walking. Heels are fabulous but sometimes only flats will do! I also love dresses with pockets. That dress was an amazing bargain! x
