Hurrah! At last it's stopped raining for a minute here in London and we actually have a gorgeously sunny day, so I'm finally able to use my latest find. This French pitcher and 4 glasses are probably from the 50s and are just perfect for fruit juice or Pimms and lemonade. [I know that technically the use of glassware isn't dependent on the weather, but they are particularly summery!]
Retro 50s juice jug and glasses - £5.50 from charity shop
This won't happen very often, but the set co-ordinates so well with my new dress, you lucky people are also treated to a rare picture of me pratting about in the

Yes, I do have a head!
Fruit print dress - Clements Ribeiro Portobello via TK Maxx
sunglasses, bangles, earrings - charity shop
sandals - liberated from Mum's wardrobe
The earrings below are another thing I picked up locally this week, and cost me £1.95. I found one caught in with the clip-on earrings, and hunted for its partner until I found it caught in the back of a brooch in a basket of random jewellery. They have a screw back - which is a LOT more comfortable than most clip-ons - and I guess they date from the 1920s or 30s. They're not precious by any means, as you can see one of the pins is rather bent, and the original gold toned finish on the beads had mostly worn off. This is probably not something to admit to doing with deco jewellery, but I 'mended' them by painting the beads with a bit of iridescent nail varnish [Chanel quick shine for nails, if you were wondering]. Anyway, I like them, and I hope whoever owned them originally would like to know they'll still be seeing nights out.
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend, wherever you are.
PS. If any of you skinny types are interested in the 80s Bernshaw dress, it's now on Ebay (sniff)
