Ossie Clark-yaay, another one for the collection!

Last week, I was fortunate to receive some money and I thought (not for long!) about what I should do with it. Of course, most of you know I love Ossie Clark and dear WendyB has been driving me to pure inspiration distraction with her divine Ossies.
So, it seemed the natural decision to add to my collection and was I pleased when I won this lovely red dress on Ebay over the weekend!!

It is a moss crepe Ossie Clark for Radley, very 40s style I would say! After a floral or patterned Ossie, I've been coveting a red one, so was very pleased when this one was for sale!

With the remaining money, I decided to treat myself to this Celia Birtwell for Topshop silk wrap top, which I'm hoping to pair with my See by Chloe high waisted light coloured flared jeans. A new purchase for spring/summer 09!!
So, I'm all spent out on my financial windfall, but I'm very pleased as to where the money's gone!

That dress is excellent! That's great.

I'm hoping I can make something to drap clothes on by using duct tape. I'm afraid if I wrap up in it I won't be able to get out of it.

Hey Sharon, I really love your new Ossie Clark dress! It's a 40s style I really like! As you may or may not know, I have had a sort of project about the 40s going on, how fashion bloggers like/wear the 40s trend. So would you mind if I link this post of yours in my next post?

Cal said...

Ow owww! Lady in red, look at you! Love it. (your shoes are adorable too, btw). I think you could wear that new top in the winter if you paired it with a dark chocolate wrap but that's just me. I'm awful at waiting to debut new pieces!

Sharon Rose said...

Anchibride said...

Swooooooooonnnn!!! That is one gorgeous dress! I love Ossie Clark so much. And the Celia Birtwell top is incredibly pretty too. You find the best clothes, girl!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi anchibride-thanks so much my dear, much appreciated!! the CB top has gone back though, the material was very flimsy.

budget chic said...

You totally scored getting that Ossie Clark dress, how freakin lucky are you!! I absolutely love the blouse! I'm super jealous right now!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi budget chic-what a lovely comment, thanks!! the CB top has gone back now, the material was rather inferior!
