AKA "5-year-old from the Sixties Dressing". On Friday, I did something very naughty and may have made a purchase or two at the Orla Kiely sample sale in Brick Lane... I have longed to own something of Orla's for absolute years, and seeing as I have been saving up wages since January and not spending any birthday money since December, I thought an exception could be made just this once. This skirt was the holier of the two "sins", at a mere £5. It's not actually a skirt at all, but a top, but who cares about that small technicality? The mod style flower print reminded me immediately of the iconic Mary Quant daisy emblem - you may recognise it from packs of tights that pop up every now and again in vintage and charity shops (anyone else ever feel disappointed that the tights are just plain and not printed with that flower design?). I decided to team it with one of my favourite vintage blouses from A Most Marvellous Place to Shop, ankle socks and my new platform clogs from Dune at Debenhams. What was the second thing I bought? You'll just have to wait and see to find out...
