Kylie sent me a parcel to warm the cockles of my heart! It arrived when my spirits were at a lowish ebb - winter blues + birthday blues + several job rejections + writing rejection = a dispirited sister outlaw with more than a whiff of a mid-life crisis about her indeed.
But I went from this*.....
with the arrival of a parcel.
Sure -what a bundle of goodies!
A vintage luscious slip with lace and bows - still new with the tag on it! There were even matching knickers! Oh in the nineties I would have worn it as a dress ala Collette Dinnigan! Still might.
Gorgeous girdle pants with love heart details and even suspenders! For that perfect vintage silhouette .
This warm luminous pure wool mohair Scottish highland cape - Makes me want to wander the hills!
And tennis fabric and tennis dress pattern! I love that smash action that fabric girl has! Inspirational!
But wonderful as all that is - the overwhelming thing was that I felt loved and appreciated and understood.
Thanks so much Kylie for the thoughtfulness, your perfect taste and the effort in posting some love across the Nullabor to your shivering blog-friend in Melbourne. If I could parcel up my heart and tie it with a piece of string and send it off to Perth I would.
But there will be reciprocal bit of stuff winging it your way soon Ms Lucy Violet Vintage!
