Feeling Fruity?

Here is the second item of vintage clothing to feature on my blog.  I got it as cheap as chips in a local charity shop. In fact, it was just £2.00 from a local animal shelter shop.

Feeling fruity?

It is by C&A and, from the style and labelling, I would say it was from the seventies.  It is black with the funkiest apple design all over it and hippy style ties to the neckline.  This is the second ‘apple’ piece to appear on my blog this week!  I have also become a bit obsessed with cherries at the moment.  I got a super cute cherry print cardigan off ebay last week for £3.00.  There certainly seems to be a fruit theme going on at the moment!

 
Anyway, the above C&A apple top has the most amazing double-batwing flared sleeves, which hang beautifully.  Look at the v-shaped hemline too.  Such lovely retro detailing.  The top looks great with jeans for day or night out.  I was delighted to have found it amongst a depressing rail of dreary old tops.  To get the good stuff, you’ve gotta root!
 

Flower power

Following on from my last post, here is a photo of another amazing vintage enamel pan that I found in a charity shop.  It is the smallest of a set of three.  I love the bright orange colour and retro floral pattern – certainly very eye-catching!  This has pride of place on the hob & is used daily to boil eggs, peas, carrots etc.  Makes me chuckle when I see my husband using it as it is so ‘not him’!  Doesn’t quite go with the golf/cycle wear does it?!
