Frocktober Day Twenty Two


I'm calling this one the Elaine

wearing vintage(?) 90's Chain Reaction frock and Jellys
 
I thought about wearing Nikes or brogues with bobby socks to complete the picture, but I had places to go and not enough time to change shoes. I couldn't bring myself to wear this dress with shoes like that in public - although I do sometimes pop on my runners with a dress or skirt to take the dog for a walk when I can't be bothered to change - but always under the cover of darkness!
 
for obvious reasons:
 
 
Elaine Benes (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) Seinfeld
 
 
George: Is it my imagination, or do really good-looking women walk a lot faster than everybody else?
 
Elaine: We don't walk that fast.
 
(Seinfeld, Season 4, The Handicap Spot)
 
You gotta love her!
 
this is our lovely old shed, if we decide to stay in the shop/house we would like to turn it into a little house...
 
Fantastic News!
 
Miss Powder Blue, the lovely vintage frock generously donated by V of Two Squirrels Vintage has been sold. I am thrilled to report that Vicky is its new owner. Between them, the girls have added another fifty bucks to my Frocktober fund, which is currently sitting pretty at $1630 :) 
 
Only nine days to go. Please sponsor me here  if you can help make it even prettier. Thank you x
 
I've been told I dance like Elaine too:
 
 
no live footage I'm afraid, that would be taking our friendship too far!

  2. You are so gorgeous in these photos! I mean movie star gorgeous, not just garden variety gorgeous :) I love that dress. Am I the only one who has a hard time realizing that 1990 was almost 25 years ago? The 90s seem like yesterday.

  4. I think I've just put down the same patio slabs as you - kitchen worktops going in as we speak (hopefully). Nice shed!

  5. Yeah, Kylie's got the MOVES! Looking lovely in your Elaine frock, but what I am really envying is that blue sky... Well done to Vanessa and Vicky, it's great that Miss PB has a new home and has raised more money as well. xxx

  13. What a lovely shed. Our studio is built along the design lines of those old garages with the little peaked facade. And nice corrugated iron wall. Sorry, were there dresses?
