dress and duvet, originally uploaded by indiaeden.

Yesterday I popped into the local charity shop and found this lovely duvet cover for just £2. This will be pyjamas for me, and probably a couple of little dresses and matching bloomers for the Etsy store.

duvet and dress

Today, I nipped quickly into a charity shop that's not so local, and found this beautiful pink day dress. Initially I thought I'd give it to India, as pink really isn't a colour I'd normally wear.
India though didn't like it, and it fits me like a glove, so I'm keeping it.
I think it's original 1950's or early 1960's.
The label is very old Marks and Spencer "St Micheals", and says size 16, 40" hip, but it's much more like a modern size 12.
I absolutely love it, and can't wait for the weather to get warmer so I can wear it.
The only thing it's missing are pockets.

Don't be shy, say hello!


  1. I love them both Jeanette. Vintage sizing is really hit and miss. I have bought a couple of things online which were far too small, and a couple of things which fit fine. I think you need to go up at least 2 sizes. £2 for the duvet is a proper bargain :)

  2. Great finds - well done. If pink isn't your thing, then you could always overdye the dress to make it a bit darker....


Hi, I love to hear from readers, hate to think I'm talking to myself here, so don't be shy say hello!
