R & R Weekend.........trying on session

I'm a blog widow!! Chris and the boys have gone to buy some materials to build a ramp for the boys BMX bikes, so today and tomorrow this is what they will be up to! I'm not sad, it will be a Rest and Relaxation weekend for me...........I have some new magazines to get through and lots of time to catch up on reading everyone else's blogs!!!
Before they disappeared, I asked my photographer to take some piccys. I wanted to show you all my new Zandra Rhodes for Topshop chiffon kaftan. Danz did a previous post on tops with cutaway shoulders and this one features these details. I've paired the top with my white Ralph Lauren jeans and Next ivory pink peep toes.




This 2nd picture is of my new ASOS trousers that I told you about yesterday and I 've paired it with my vintage Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche silk top.
Look forward to catching up on all your blogs and hope you all have a brilliant weekend, whatever you get up to!!!

You always find the best bargains, too.

Have fun surfing the net while they are working on their project.

Great tops paired with just the right pair of slacks. :) Well done!

God I love Zandra tops.....they're so sexy but so comfortable. I have two originals and two Topshops....love 'em all!!

Great YSL as well :)

ellie said...

Well...

I haven't bought those dresses specifically...but...

1. I do shope at New Life Thrift.

2. They do have the best selection of dresses.

3. I spotted a couple one day playing around with the sun shades and the hats, speaking French. At first I thought, "Wow..we have French people right here in the midwest, but they were just high school kids practicing their French. They were such a fun couple, having a good time thrifting.

Hi ellie-your research served you well then, as the story is so believable!!

Secretista said...

A ramp for your boys?! What a cool mommy you are.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi secretista! Actually, their dad is (was) making it-its all gone pear shaped (the project-not the ramp!) and they've gone to the park instead!! Ramp making to be resumed tomorrow!

Wow, the kaftan is so beautiful, and it looks simply lovely with the white trousers and pink shoes, Sharon. And so does the second outfit, too!
