Swinging Sunday

My boyfriend's parents came to visit today, and brought with them his newly repaired record player.

This means that he can finally listen to his EXTENSIVE vinyl collection. Predominately jazz, and we currently have Ella Fitzgerald floating through the flat. It has to be said that there is something so romantic about vinyl, the sound is just so beautiful... if only we had a roaring fire to go with it in this cold weather!
This is what I wore today, chosen by the boyf as a matter of fact. This is one of my favourite dresses, from M&S Per Una when they were having a very unusual cool spell a couple of years ago. I love the huge polka dots.... you may have realised by now that I am not a girl who likes to blend in and go unnoticed clothes wise!.
My favourite thing about this dress is the band of small polka dots down my left-hand side, a rather unusual touch for M&S, and quite a cool one in my humble opinion!

Can I just mention at this point that I used Simple shampoo and conditioner this morning and it has made my hair so soft and shiny. I love it. Throughout the week I use Head & shoulders 2in1 (I don't give a fuck what anyone says about 2in1, I don't have time to fanny about in the morning and it works wonders for my hair and scalp!) and then use separate shampoo & conditioner at the weekends, but Simple is now definitely my favourite brand. The shampoo strips all the products out of my hair and makes it feel quite dry, and then the conditioner makes it feel like silk. Winner! Highly recommend it. You can currently get this in my local pound land which makes me very happy!
While sorting through the records I found this Jimmy Smith one - check out the amazing outfits on these hotties! I love 60's fashion, it was so feminine and stylish. Please can someone make me these in size 22 / 24?!


  1. Records are the best! Sadyl I don't have a record player or records, but I love them. Better quality of cds or not, records have those special noise and with it this special atmosphere. <3

    Oh … so much talk about the recors. Shame on me. The dress looks fab on you. <3


  2. eeepp!!! That dress is fabulous!!! xxx

  3. Why thank you lovely ladies! I wish Per Una would make stuff like this again, I had a few months where I bought loads of amazing stretchy dresses from there.

  4. Do you have any more information about the dress? i want to try to hunt a second hand one down.x
