My New Years Outfit....................

I might as well post this one before it's no longer relevant. The dress was a Christmas gift, and it's by Stylestalker, I love the teal colour, the crepe fabric, the hood, and the zippered pockets. I'm going to wear it to Big Day Out next weekend, but with my combat boots, not the beau coops shoes in the picture. Anyway, I have a slight problem. Somehow on New Years, I managed to get white chewing gum on the back of the dress and it's noticeable. Not sure if this is right, but I was thinking of using some cooking oil to remove the gum, then once that's gone use something else to remove the oil???? If anyone out there has successfully removed chewing gum from fabric, please share your methods - thanks :)

Sandra Dee.......

I discovered Sandra Dee recently whilst watching "imitation of life" made around 1958. But upon further research discovered she had quite a sad life as many child stars do. So now I just want to get into some more 50's movies. How awesome is this paper dolls book!! I would have frothed at the mouth as kid to have this.

Happy 2011

I hope everyone enjoyed themselves on new years. I went to the pub I always go to, had a ball, got a taxi without any fuss at all and was home by about 3am. Great success!!

The lovely dress i'm wearing was given to me by a pregnant friend. It's a maternity dress that her father bought for her in Turkey, she gave it to me because her partner told her she looked like a Polish cheese farmer in it!! (not that there's anything wrong with cheese farmers - imagine all that tasty cheese :) ) I'm so in love with this dress - the patterned part of the dress is a pinwale cord fabric. it's so comfortable too. Also, I would just like to add that i'm not pregnant myself :)
