313 days to go: Biba Baby

I am off to my conference this morning.
I dragged out my old faithful Biba shirt.
It is original and I found it in a charity shop in West Kirby (a "Ferry Across the Mersey" away) during a writing assignment.
One of the worst parts of writing "Through The Keyhole" style features about HUGE homes is that I have developed a terminal case of House Envy.
The great thing is that these houses are always in posh WAG style villages. The only cure for House Envy is Bargasm Therapy (shopping experience better than sex) I park up and trawl the charity shops in said villages.
I have scored a brand new pair of Whistles Jeans, this Biba shirt and many others.
I bought this shirt in 2005 for £2.50. I love the detail especially the buttons. I imagine some glamorous fashionista once wore this during the heady days of Beatlemania. Maybe it even belonged to a Beatles girlfriend.
It is a bit old and off cream now. And I usually end up with static hair due to the man-made fibre.
But a Bargasm is a Bargasm!

I am wearing
Gap Jeans
Black Vest: Oasis
Cowboy Boots: Dorothy Perkins
Leather Belt: ASOS

I will be away for a few days but I will be taking my new travelling tripod with me.

I'd love to read some of your "Through the Keyhole" articles. Any chance you can link us to one?

If you run into Paul McCartney in this shirt tell him I said hello!

Hey look at you missy in your vintage!! Lookin' Good! (Have you got shopping withdrawal yet - I'd be climbing the walls by now!)

Stacy said...

I just left you a little blog love in my blog. Thanks for the fashion inspiration - I actually wore something slightly different today because you inspired me to think differently!
