Recently I went with my  youngest daughter  to one of our favourite events ‘Frock me’ at Chelsea Town Hall. This is where independent dealers sell vintage and not so vintage dresses, textiles, gloves, bags and Jewellery. There are lovely ancient shirt collars and old buttons for sale. Clothes and haberdashery range from the late 1900’s up to the nineteen eighties. buttonsShirt collars Lovely Fabrics

My daughter was hunting for  particular outfit to wear to a grand party. She found a very fitted 1980’s strapless dress with a tulip skirt in a navy and white print plus a divine cobalt blue 1960’s duster coat to wear on top. The next Frock Me  to be held at Chelsea Town Hall is on
