Multicolour Black Eye




Bonjour fellow bloggers. I am just gonna take this moment to say hats off to my fellow BOROer  Mamam Margaux because she has been looking fierce. Margaux is hotter than a French kiss in Paris and harder than a Glasgow kiss in Scotland. 

Got a wee birthday party to attend tomorrow. The day time is a fancy dress punt down the river in Oxford (photos to follow), but this is what I'm gonna be sporting for the evening do.


 Finally got myself a pair of heeled desert boots. I was searching for a nice nude/beige pair and then when it come down to crunch time I found myself leaving with a black pair. What do you know? I have been wanting to team them with some stripey socks and then I thought why not go the whole multicoloured way. This is a dress I found in a vintage shop, the lady in the shop said it was a theatre costume... I like to think it was from Fiddler On The Roof... any other suggestion? A lovely dress maker I know, Avelina, was kind enough to shorten it for me, take off the sleeves and give it a scoop neck. Before it was rather dowdy, but I could not resist the print. I've also wanted a cropped tuxedo jacket for ages and found this one for a tenner. 
Love a bargain supreme!

Wishing you all a belter of a weekend. Grzbezos xx

  1. Hey,

    Yes I'm in Glasgow!

    I love the desert boots, I've been after a nude pair too.
    Hmm, I'm thinking it came from Checkov's The Three Sisters, it has a foksy Russian look.
