Just a quick outfit post. I know it's that day today, if you like celebrating it I wish you a good one, if you hate it we shall sweep the whole thing to one side and I bid you a happy Monday instead :)
Anyway... I wore this ensemble on Sunday. Set my hair all by myself and it came out alright for a change.... huzzahs ! I'm wearing my new Bluebird dress from Adelines Attic. I was supposed to be being a good girl this year when it comes to clothing purchases, but this little beauty was too good to miss! I also have a stunning Puttin' on the Ritz number to show off, which was a birthday purchase. But that deserves a seperate post too :)

I added the belt as I finally managed to lose a few inches so things are a little baggy atm,which is great ,but also means I have a lot of alterations to do (and what if those inches creep back on again?!) I think a lovely thin belt in kelly green would look great with the dress... along with a green hat and some green suede 1940s sling backs... need to keep an eye out for a pair (which is tricky with my size 6 feet). Ooo yeah I forgot to show you the sleeves... the sleeves...
|Oooo, I stared at these so hard the first wear I got a crick in the neck!|
In the evening I went to see Chris play with harry Strutters Hot Rhythm Orchestra who were accompanying "The Jiving Lindy Hoppers" It was awesome. 1920s/30s jazz with some mean dancers performing to the songs. If you get the chance to see the show (normally called The Cotton Club Revue) I'd highly recommend it. Or just look out for the Lindy Hoppers who do shows across the UK, they are really fab.
The Theatre audotorium was named after Bruce Forsyth and there was a big plaque on the wall to let the audience know this, so I had to do a Brucey pose!
|Good game good game!|
Also, I know I promised to record "You Rascal You" but I'm not happy with the version I recorded so another will be posted soon, so to tide you over I've popped this little ditty up wot I did the other day. I also found a movie making kit on the computer so I'm all crackly and sepia toned now too! (BTW I sniff towards the end of the song... it's supposed to be me being sad, not holding back a runny nose as the chap thought!)
