Hi there my friends.
How's it going?
Seems mother nature wants us all to return to normal with this horrible wet weather she's dished us. It seemed slightly easier staying home with sunny, warm weather - but with rain and cold wind it's not pleasant at all. I stopped by my daughter's earlier today and even with the car window slightly open I got soaked - she got cold standing in the doorway so we had to cut short our chat! Let's hope there's an end in sight, but I'm not holding my breath for it!
Well today I had planned to share a recent gifted outfit from Bonmarche - but as the weather wasn't playing fair at all I've postpone for another day - hopefully next week if the weather improves for photos!!! So what to share today???
Well this will make you laugh and be amazed at the same time. Now do let me know if this has happened to you.
Many, many years ago I was involved in fun hair and fashion shows, nothing big just a local salon where my best friend worked along with various fashion shops periodically putting on fashion shows to promote the salon and some local dress shops. We'd have our hair done by the hairdressers and wear a couple of outfits selected by the shop owner so we could show them off. It was always good fun, and we'd all dream about being "super-models" strutting our stuff to Five Stars' album. Lol!
My friend had been looking through some old photos and came across one that showed the two of us in bridal style dresses along with a bunch of other ladies. We were wearing white dresses and had various hair additions added with a bouquet of flowers to boot - we looked an absolute picture, well we thought so at the time! She sent the photo to me yesterday along with a close up of another lady - that other lady turned out to be one of my other best friends who I didn't actually meet until some years later!!! Yes I was shocked to find out we had been in the same show years before and didn't even know each other. Life has a funny way of putting people together, and then they seem to find each other again, really knowing they should be friends eventually. How weird is that??? Here's the photo - not very good quality but remember it is probably about 30 years old!
That's me far right - with my bestie next to me.
So more about this funny situation, the lady on the left in the white hat looking at the camera I didn't know but is now another best friend who I've spent many good times with on various holidays, nights out and parties. We've know each other for a few years, but not as long as when the photo was taken - seems we were always meant to be friends!
Here's me and my best friend in Rome last year.
Afternoon tea in a local hotel. A birthday treat for my friend.
Me and my bestie at her son's wedding.
Here's me with my best friend and my hubby on one of our many nights out. This was NYE in a local pub - catch what I wore here.
I must add we all seem to have got better dress sense now - ha ha ha.
Time for a party - it's #Chicandstylish #LINKUP time.
Before the party starts, shall we see who's most favourite from last week? Meet Laurie - Vanity & Me Style who's inspiring everyone to get dressed up in an elegant dress and stylish shoes. I adore this dress and love the shoe cupboard nearly as much!
