Me and my cousin are complete polar opposites. She dresses like a retro 50’s pin up, is crafty with a sewing machine and can draw the perfect feline flick. I, on the other hand, favour comfort and oversized tees, will wear my clothes with holes in until they disintegrate and can never be bothered with the precision of a feline flick. My crafty cousin got out her needle and thread and whipped me up some glittery purple perfection. Probably because she wants to up my glam factor.
She text me in excitement at having found some fabric that she knew would take my fancy and promised to make me something I could twirl in.And I am overwhelmed with the result. It sits high on the waist and shimmers and swirls perfectly in the light.
She also gifted me these silver glitter socks which I immediately pulled on with these silver glitter boots she also nabbed for me on Ebay. See, she’s adorable.
I mean, just look at me. Look how happy I am. Look how I’ve literally grabbed anything and everything that sparkles (Magpie alert) and chucked them all on together at once. It’s fantastic.
My cousin, aa Mrs Bow Retro, has her own blog here, go check it out. Now that’s an order.
Magpie, over and out.
