New hair and bimblings
Secondhand Rose of Worcester on Etsy, but this was on her Instagram feed and I snapped it up before it went in the online shop. I ordered it assuming it was 60s, then started to wonder – the lilac shade and the blocky, squared-off shapes of the flowers made me think. Anyhow, it's made by Fredrick Howard of London, and it's definitely vintage. I haven't been able to find out anything about the firm, but there's a reasonable amount of their 60s-70s stuff online and the label in this matches those. The print's got navy in, so should go with my Goody bag and Modshoes - and my lime green loafers, if I'm feeling more casual. There's a bit of gappage round the bust, but if I stick to my salads and exercise hopefully that will sort itself out. (Not that it has so far, wah!)
Tim Weaver had his annual book launch. His new thriller, You Were Gone, is out now. The person who announced him said he is the 'fastest growing UK crime writer', which makes me imagine him putting on the inches day by day... obviously it's his sales that are growing, not him!
