And how are we on this chilly Monday? The temperature here has plummeted substantially over the last few days, and, as ever, I am not really prepared with much in the way of warm clothing. I still struggle slightly with opaque tights, even though I am not being quite so strict with my vintage look at the moment. I just find sheer nude stockings more aesthetically pleasing. It’s a problem. I’m dealing with it (by being cold).
Yesterday, I got dolled up and went to Polesden Lacey, on a mission for The King’s Ginger. They’re doing their annual Edwardian Christmas event, you see – perfect for my festive KGL post. But I took so very many photos that I thought I’d do a gratuitous outfit and photos-that-don’t-really-fit-the-brief post.
Little bits of Polesden Lacey’s furniture and Christmas decorations, just to give you a taste of what’s to come. And my outfit in more detail… first outing for my Able Grable Christmas frock! Burgundy velvet, how seasonal.
I would like it, as otherwise it would have been binned. Yes please!
1950s, gold leather, little furry leopard inserts, amazing.
but I found another pair on eBay for £4. Hurrah!
Please tune back in a day or so to find out what I got up to at Polesden Lacy.
