The 60’s Paisley Print Kaftan

This dress is bloody gorgeous. Proper vintage from the 1960s. I have dreamed of having a piece of vintage clothing for the longest time and when I found this dress – and it fitted me – I died! I *had* to have it!

I have owned it for a year, and have never worn it anywhere! I have been waiting for a reason…the right time. I was contemplating it for my birthday and the John Grant gig, but decided against it.

Laying in bed a couple of nights back, sleepless, listening to the Bard’s Tale, I thought “Oh wow! That’s the PERFECT opportunity for that dress to FINALLY get an outing! The Royal Concert Hall – you always need to be a bit glam for there (I was in a lovely black lace dress with white collar and cuffs at the Acoustic gig there in 2017 – Catherine complimented me on how I looked, which was nice 😊) – and the dress has a look that will perfectly suit the occasion. Green Paisley print – it’s perfect!

So, yep! I’m doing it! This dress is getting its debut wearing at the Bard’s Tale gig.

I just gotta wear it out once…

Gladrags And Music Mags

Took my guests to St Albans today. Among the places shown were Empire Records (my first meeting with Catherine taking place there in October, 2016) and to a vintage clothes shop.

Some goodies to be had in both. Found recent back issues of Mojo magazine at the record shop…complete with complimentary CDs on the covers featuring music from Catherine AD/The Anchoress and Johnny And The Self-Abusers.

I saw some amazing dresses inside the vintage shop…and one in particular kept catching my eye. Never believed it would fit me, but I went behind the changing screen in the corner of the shop to try it and BLOW ME DOWN WITH A FEATHER! So…I know it’s a little personal…but this dress is stunning! I am in love!
