Ok, this isn’t the twelve days of Christmas – check out Retrochick’s blog – her very own challenge with Christmasssy outfits are my daily joy. I have a few festive outfits of my own (like this Bernie Dexter Winterwonderland dress and it’s variation). This is look number four – the snow queen. Still on sick leave I put on some lippy and dragged my sorry self, MontyDerMops and my bestie to the postboxes around the corner to make a few shots to take part in the LindyBop Christmas competition with pose No. 3 – #LindyMail. I thought my best chances were with this entry but I won the #LindyBauble challenge with a red and white outfit in a completely natural Pin-Up Pose.
People were staring somewhat befuddled – somehow they wondered about this strange lady (me) posing next to the postboxes. Don’t think they realised my bestie made pics with my iPad. Ach, whatever. I didn’t win the #LindyMail competition – but check out the other entries – especially that cat is soooo funny!
So here is the pose and the winner – Angie from @queen_ange_face!
And this is also my contribution for this month’s challenge of Plus40Fabulous – a lovely group created by Leah from Just Me, Leah and Mookie from Mookie’s Life. You can find them (or rather us) on Facebook and Instagram.
This is MontyDerMops – Monty, the pug. Contrary to other people my pet isn’t a handbag sized dog but a dogshaped handbag. This FuzzyNation animal (sorry, they closed their shop – but check them out on Amazon or eBay) isn’t very roomy but has been a trusty companion since 2009. I fell in love with him two years before on a flight out to Paris in Manchester Airport.
I was gutted when I found these shoes a few days later. Sigh – they would have been perfect. The grey tweed fascinator is the one and only hand made Christmas presie for the friend who takes a lot of my pictures (the position of the Instagram husband is still open ^^). And the tartan one is a surprise but not a Christmas present 😉
dress: Audrey Mini-Gingham in black and white, LindyBop – also on Sale (without pockets) and a darling one for kids
cardigan: Zizzifashion, Winter 2014/2015, sold out (I removed the decorative sequin strips)
fascinator: made by moi from reclaimed fur (from a set with the scarf)
lantern brooch, kid gloves, fur stole and muff: vintage
thermal tights: C&A
heels: black glitter platforms by Deichmann – but these or these from Tamaris are better for the look!
Just in case you wonder what I picked (first price for #LindyBauble were a skirt, petticoat and top).
Sorry – no German version today 🙁
