Hola mes amis, viva la Vendredi! *Waves Friday flag* 😀
(I know that first sentence is a mish mash of languages and the syntax is haywire )
Today I’m wearing a mixed outfit where technically the shirt and the vest are not fancy separates, however in essence my outfit reminds me of vintage days gone by and with the blazing bright Red and Yellow combo it makes me feel fancy 🙂
Mum says I remind her of going to the park, balloons, poppies, lollipops, bubblegum, those balls you land in in adventure playgrounds, blowing bubbles, painting, joining up the dots, marbles; childish and whimsical things… As well as a washer woman.
The shirt is probably one of my oldest items of clothing (other than socks) that wasn’t a hand me down or vintage piece – I chose it (to be bought on my behalf) when I was about 12 I think, 11 or 12. Look how big it is! Seriously it didn’t seem big at the time. The vest is a simple separate which was inexpensive anyway but I think I got it for a clearance price approx 4-5 years ago and I got the skirt a little later as a cashback purchase. So bargain all round, as usual!
I’ll update this page later with links & pics of other bloggers I see celebrating Fancy Friday 🙂

AND special mention to…
MAMA 😀 who actually let me take photos of her today whilst she was getting ready heh heh heh 😮 😐 😄
In her twist to the usual business suit with blouse and waistcoat, she transformed it into a going out/dressy suit with corset and accessories (though I didn’t get a pic once she’d straightened her hair and put her blazer back on – she’s way too quick for me.) She’s always been massively into alternative style especially goth and punk.
