…and some silly dresses

What did I say about sensible purchases? Here are three silly ones. Checked shirt-waister, better-suited to a teenage grunge kid (20p from Plumpton jumble sale); ill-fitting houndstooth Red Herring office dress (£1 from Plumpton), which clung to all the wrong bits; and an utterly ridiculous flowered/animal-print/glittery/appliqued party frock with frills and mullet-style hemline (£1 from Rodmell the other week). The latter, I must point, out, I never intended to keep for myself, though it failed to find a home amongst my more flamboyant friends at Sarah M’s clothes-swap party (more to follow on this). However, I’m glad the houndstooth dress looked so good on you, Sarah… thanks again for your hospitality.

  1. Do I like the Red Herring Dress?

    Ah, I’m afraid that one’s gone to a new home already – was snapped up at the clothes-swap party by our kind hostess. Looked great on her, so it would not have fitted you any better than it did me. Trust me on the sizing/shape/cut assessment – the placing of the waist suited someone shorter (and shorter in the body) than either of us.

  3. Ah. Good. I’ve just double-checked the arms. Very not-me.
