It’s my birthday today..

Another year gone..an extra minute on the naughty step..

96bee76479c9f0609012176c58ae2b45And it was decided that the ideal present from hubbie would be a pair of knock-out jeans..boyfriend style..but even after heading to the Denim Factory at Selfridges yesterday..I don’t seem to be able to find the perfect pair..4b08bc9e05b8f647926a1f0d86a86e75 Except perhaps in the dark recess of ┬ámy memories…these jeans were the uniform of my school years – well-worn, ripped, loose, belted, rolled legged, soft, easy, faded MENS (very important) 501 Levi’s, teamed with ballet pumps, fishnets (!), a white t-shirt and either a battered leather jacket or a blazer…

c600x1024The husband is taking me away for the weekend..to Brighton..the beating heartland of vintage…and guess what I’ll be looking for? Wish me luck!
