Saturday I decided it was about time that I went and did some charity shopping, it's been a while since I've gone out specifically for coffee and charity shops, and the weather was just nice enough. I opted to wear this tunic/ dress which I found in the bottom of my laundry basket last week. I have no recollection of buying it, it looks home crocheted, but Lord knows how much it cost or how long it's been languishing in my laundry. Nice though isn't it?

Then, yesterday I was greeted by a parcel of joy from darling Desiree. My postman was smirking when he handed me the parcel addressed to 'The Flapper' and I couldn't believe the gorgeousness that lay inside.
There were lovely nail varnishes (I'm going to use one of these tonight, I reckon)
The most beautiful vintage girl postcard, and a beautiful Sassy Vamps headdress made by Desiree's own fair hands, in my favourite purples.
Then, there was the Piece de resistance... remember how long I've been banging on about wanting a Cheongsam? How hard they were to come across in my size? Well, Desiree managed it. Just look at this!
I was so excited, it's so beautiful, and... it fits like a dream. I can't wait to show you all, and hopefully it won't be too long before I get an occasion to wear it. I've been such a lucky girl this weekend, and this week I have a week off work, so who knows what I'll get up to.
