      I know me too!! 90% of my fabric is from op shops! I like the way you can buy some facbric for real cheap and it might be ugly but then you make it into something really beautiful!

    How gorgeous! Really feminine and classic. Have you seen a programme on TV called Mad Men…it reminds me of that era. I love the way women dressed then.

      I just saw that moivie on Tv the other day and I know what you mean. We were just watching it to see the dresses. They did wear really nice dresses back then. I want to wear dresses all the time, but I will always look too dressed up. Dresses always seem to make you look dressed up alone, and I want to wear them everyday. But Im really not interested in what people think.
