Magpie Monday – little black dress
I was visiting my parents recently and my dad mentioned that even though it was a Sunday there were some local shops open including at least one charity shop. So I went for a walk in the rain to see whether there was anything worth buying.
I found the one charity shop that was open and was just browsing through the books and homewares in the back room, when the shop manager shouted through to me from the front of the shop. She said, “Some has just donated a dress that would look good on you. Why don’t you try it on?” Well I never normally wear black dresses because I prefer to wear colour next to my face. But I tried it on just to be polite and it looked gorgeous so I bought it!
So for £7 I got a lovely ‘little black dress’ that will be great for parties and evenings out. The label says ‘Edina Ronay’ which would normally be totally out of my price range.
The beautiful beadwork makes it look less severe than some black dresses, and of course the neckline is fairly low so the black is not right next to my face.
I’m linking up with this week’s Magpie Monday which this week is hosted by Lulastic and the Hippyshake (because Liz is off on holiday – hope you have a fab time Liz!)
