Red shoes, No knickers



July 2011



Each peach, pear, plum….

For my birthday I treated myself to this fab jumpsuit (here) but I also bought this playsuit, both from the Beloved Rokit.  I’ve been wanting to wear it for a while but two factors were getting in the way

a) The weather was, literally, pissing on my playsuit parade

b) There were pearl buttons and random lace attached!?

A true 80’s piece of clothing if ever there was one!  Now, I had found a playsuit that fit my long body just fine, was in my colour de jour (also seen here) and I wasn’t going to let a little tweaking get in my way.  If you can tell a piece of clothing only needs a stitch here or there then I say go for it.  If what needs doing is more than you’re capable of and you’re going to have to pay someone to alter it then you need to weigh up whether the cost of the repairs added to the cost of the item is worth it.

As mentioned here I found PERFECT replacement buttons in Paris in a small market…

….the lace was merely tacked on and so very easy to unpick….

Easy peasy lemon squeezey!

New peach playsuit: DONE!

(reworked rokit playsuit, m&s heels)

Apricot nails, a peach playsuit, neon pink tootsies all washed down with a blush and some super sweet treats…
