Lemon Confection

There was no way I could leave this night time twinset on the £1.00 rail in the charity shop.

It's in absolutely pristine condition.
I don't think it could ever have been worn.
The label shows it came from Freemans.
It reminds me of something some pretty blonde actress would have worn in a 70's sitcom when opening the door to the milkman, G says it reminds him of something one of the leggy ladies from a Benny Hill 'chase' sketch would have been wearing.
Either way it a frothy creation of man made material I couldn't resist buying.
And before you start wondering (if you haven't already) I won't be wearing it, it's in S's dressing up box. Perfect princess clothing.

  2. But in my head I see you being chased by G to the theme tune from Benny Hill!! And I can't stop smiling!!! Love it!! PS He was on last night, did you see him? He got mentioned by name as they chased a stolen car (where the driver cried in the back seat!!) and as they were eating bacon butties, and as the chinese bloke took his kids for a ride on the bike. xx

  3. That is gorgeous! As an ex-Costume Curator tho', I would keep it safe. That's costume history after all.

    As indeed are the clothes we get to wear today will be in 30 years time.

    That would be one saucy princess in that!! I also remember Sybil wearing something similar in Fawlty Towers!!

  4. Don't you think you would look rather fetching in lemon? It's a shame to banish such a frothy delight to the dressing up box!

  10. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
    Why American men should boycott American women

    http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
