If I were a Chorus Girl

Aah so this is my haul from last Sundays Vintage Village fair, I did good eh. The black slinky ensemble £20 is a two piece, dress and jacket with a darling little belt. I'd seen it the month before but didn't think it would fit, however I was heckled into trying it on by my friend and by jove it fit. The lady from the stall, Lost but Not Forgotten, got rather emotional to see her old favourite frock from 1973 on me, I love clothes with a history and I will look after it all the more.


The beaded little dress £5 I can't quite work out, it doesn't look like its been shortened so I have decided it's a chorus girl's costume. Which obviously I need, I have already been doing my version of tap dancing on the kitchen floor whilst wearing it...
The charm bracelet is so heavy that I like to say it will stop me from doing work, but it doesn't. The little hat sits on my head perfectly and was only £5. The Libeled Lady Print was a snip at £3. And I am a sucker for a tourist scarf, this London one was just £3, a girl can never have too many scarves. Have you found any gems recently?
