Emerson Frock Friday

Today's frock was a recent Ebay purchase from a fellow Brissy seller. It came unworn with the original tags, by 'Emerson' of Brisbane. I think it's my first ever vintage label made in my home town. It's a brushed cotton fabric, which feels like a very light flannelette but thankfully it doesn't feel too hot. I find myself stroking the fabric as it's so soft & cuddly (a bit like that 80's koala jumper!). I seem to love the combination of red, white & navy at the moment. We caught up with my Mother in law today seeing as we won't be seeing her on Christmas day as she'll be away. Although we'll miss her at least Christmas day won't be the marathon day it usually is trying to fit in two families in one day.


Barry M turquoise nails still rein supreme thanks to our Barry M Queen Vix!
