MPSG and 2 dresses in 4 occasions

My Personal Shopping Guide, I had a plan, these things don't happen often, so I went with it;

These were my goals
1. Big skirt with petticoat - to create size and increase personal space
2. Red - it's a passionate/aggressive colour, apparently, and also very nice
3. Brooches - because they are pretty
4. Flat shoes - I am dangerous in heels
5. Husband - useful for driving and helping
6. Red lipstick - no reason needed

My arms? 
Ready for Battle


Practical examination - it worked, I was bumped into once, as I was protected by excess fabric and a petticoat the offender was lucky not to bounce of me and into the nearest window

I haven't shown Mr F who carried most of the bags
Shopping is exhausting


then Work, actually I wore this to work and the evening before for my nephews birthday party
I won't wash clothes every time I wear them, no need to


Sudley House
As Mr F is off work we had a sneaky morning out and about
Great place and free




I am challenging myself to take more pics outside
I didn't realise how awkward I would feel
but no time for nonsense
I have challenged myself




trying to relax on an awesome stairwell

just magnificent





the pic before this was delightful
I was adjusting myself in a vigorous manner


Hazelnut coffee and a scone
*faint*
too too good

I am linking in to the Christmas share in style with lovely Sacramento
I know it's a literal interpretation
but I have access to Santa! Ho Ho Ho!


I hope you all have a majestic weekend
let there be love and cake

  1. I'm so glad your big skirt and petticoat plan worked ... I might have to adopt it too.
    Love that mosaic/tiled floor ... they just don't make them like they once did.

    1. haha! I think my Mother would call it 'fur coat and no knickers' - I definitely think big skirts work and a slightly demonic look!, and the floor is amazing! x x x

  2. You look super! Big clothes is always the way forward when shopping, that or not many clothes and bony elbows!

    Sudley house is fantastic isn't it? I would love to live there. You look like you own it in some of those photos!

  4. I love it when a plan comes together! I'm surprised anyone could get near to you, never mind jostle you. So that should be you Shopping Outfit from now on, especially when it's busy. Plus, you look gorgeous as well as being well protected - result!
    Sudley House looks beautiful, and you look quite the Lady of the Manor. Gorgeous stained glass, elegant staircase, beautiful tiled floor, lovely gardens, and I adore the shot of you from behind. If that doesn't sound too rude... And which bit of yourself were you vigorously adjusting? Were your knickers up your bum? That's why I wear Granny Pants, saves on hoiking them out at inopportune moments.
    Oh I am so delightfully ladylike, aren't I? I need some lessons from you, Lady Sandra! Love the fur collar, by the way, and I think Santa rather likes you too, ho ho ho.
    Have a great weekend! xxxx

  7. You look gorgeous in your 50s style skirt and petticat, the fur stole is just perfect!
    Oh...I've never tried hazelnut coffee, my mouth is watering just thinking about it.

    Have a wonderful weekend with your own personal Santa ;) xx

    1. I don't know what a petticat is, but there should definitely be such a thing. I think I've invented a cool new word.

      Anyway, obviously I meant petticoat :) x

      Delete
    2. I think I prefer petticat, it probably explains why mine like to sleep on it! it was my first hazelnut coffee, I can't even explain how delicious it was!! yes, me and my personal Santa are having a fab time! have a wonderful weekend Yvonne x x x :)

  8. You look stunning, especially nibbling on your high tea. That huge skirt is perfect for keeping those irritating in your face shoppers at bay, the ones who breathe down your neck in chazzas and try to snatch your spoils from your arms. I must channel you and do the same 0 but with bastard massive heels to accidentally on purpose pierce their feet for daring to get too close! xxx

    1. ha! I love it! I should wear bastard massive heels next time, like a shopping ninja! and thank you! x x x x

  18. Ahhh---love you in that black with red cape... TREMENDOUS... You look fantastic... My sweet little mother used to say to me (since I was quite heavy back then) that I looked better in solids and dark colors... I think that is true --but it's not always 'fun' to wear the dark colors --unless we had a beautiful red cape or special collar to go with them.... LOVE it.

    Hugs,
    Betsy
