And why do I look so damned smug?
Because I am extremely impressed that I managed to remove this.
Can you see that gross stain that sat taunting me on my new-to-me op shopped frock?
Yep, yuck, I know.
And I normally steer clear of any stained clothes, but this dress totally spoke to me. Hell, it sang in sultry tones and I just had to have her despite her terrible coffee stain. But victory was mine because after a good soak and two washes the stain was gone and those beautiful shades were unblemished once more. Huzzah for Exit soap! No props for the unfeeling op shop worker who would not reduce the price of the dress though!
So my beautiful frock and I spent a perfect Sunday of the long weekend, having a fun BBQ with the in laws, and I somehow managed to keep my pretty frock with nary a spot or stain. Very clever of me, who somehow attracts every piece of food to her chest and lap, especially when said food is coated in a gooey, drippy sauce.
The in laws recently moved in to their newly built house in the country and their garden boasts some beautiful spots to relax already.
The kidlets adore their grand parents and playing all sorts of games with them that usually involve making lots of mess.
And now let me show off the dress again!
Such perfect shades of pink, mauve and aqua, make it a favourite already.
And it wouldn't be me if I didn't tell you that it made me insanely happy to match one of my other newly op shopped acquisitions.
I bought this bag in a fit of "my-3-year-old-is-about-to-have-a-tantrum-and-I-must-exit-the-shop-pronto", and I bought it because I loved the colour but thought it was an el-cheapo modern version, only to be very happily surprised to find it a high quality vintage.
I also found this darling recently. I'm not exactly sure if she is a vase and don't want to test her ability at holding water but she is doing a grand job of wearing some fake flowers as a stunning headpiece.
Hope everyone is having a terrific weekend!
