I was invited to a Clambake recently and the dress theme revolved around the movie of the same name starring Elvis Presley.
I ran with my interpretation of a more formal outfit to suit the period and it was an excuse to wear this frock again. I haven’t worn it for a long time.
I bought this home-made vintage outfit from the Camden Lock markets when I was there in 2000. It has the matching bolero and the fabric combination is just gorgeous. I wouldn’t say the style of it really suits me, but I don’t care.
I bought it because of the fabric. Who would have thought that paisley and roses go together, but they do.
And I wore a recent shoe purchase because the colours matched and it added a bit of bling.
So the whole outfit, including my ring was pre-loved.
And the night turned out to be a lot of fun. I’ll have to watch Clambake again now.
