As if by magic, the shopkeeper appeared

Walking along the street today I saw a woman with a clothes rail. Standing there in the middle of a busy pavement with all the people passing by.

There was a psychedelic A-line shift on the rail, the woman told me she was selling the dress on behalf of her friend in Germany and that the friend had made it for herself. I bought the dress and when I came back along the street she was gone. No sign that she had ever been there.

Great dress though, but not home made at all.

Frock and jacket

Ah, The Frock and Jacket - anyone remember the coolest bar in Brighton before it became a branch of Cafe Rouge? Those were the days! I worked double shifts at Food For Friends to pay the fees for my masters degree, kept a tiny sketchbook hidden in the folds of my work apron and tottered around on cork-soled platforms looking like a drag queen with my big, big hair....

So, to bring us back to 2010, here's a frock and here's a jacket. Oh, hang - on this only brings us to about 1963. I think my time machine is broken - I'm still going backwards.

Enough for one day

I don't know whether pasting in these links will work, but let's give it a go. As usual, jewellery was my big seller at Frock Me! so I have spent all evening listing on eBay clothes I didn't sell today. Twenty minutes of free listing time left and I've had enough! Actually feel like looking at something made after 1963 for a change (don't worry I'm sure normal service will have resumed by tomorrow).
