Back in the spring I was rather taken by the outfit that presenter Nicki Chapman wore. Here it is:

Well, I was watching Celebrity Antiques Road Trip yesterday and she popped up again wearing the same outfit:

I found a reference online to the outfit which Nicki said was by Hobbs. She is quite a stylish lady. My type of girl.
Have fun, but try not to make a mess,
Did you see the 2nd episode? Lovely American lady in a nice skirt and cardigan…
Close to the Enemy 1
So I rather liked the look and decided to have a go myself…

Mmm… I love that skirt!
A few more of Ivanka – these are my favourite shots. I love the outfit.
The outfit has everything going for it including the short-sleeved top and floaty skirt – yum!
I have to confess to being a big fan of Donald Trump and thought that he’d win. The world is changing and for the better. Brexit, Trump, bring it on.
Several years of the awful Hilary Clinton and her trouser suits, or “pant suits” in the US. My god, how awful! That woman has no taste and for that reason alone should not be in power.
Ivanka Trump – Mmm… The daughter, Gorgeous! Hopefully we’ll be seeing a bit more of her. I did like that little pale blue dress:
Another nice dress
Next to go will be Angela Merkel. She hasn’t noticed that the people are fed up with the way things are and her lack of elegance…
I rest my case,
Have fun (I am),
New Organza Box Pleated Skirt
Wow, what can be said? Gorgeous! Taken this morning and I am still wearing the outfit…
I have done some shopping! Online and in vintage shops. I just bought these 3 skirts from Closet and they are truly wonderful. You will recall the post about box pleated skirts…

I am sooo looking forward to photographing these next week. I am actually wearing the blue and pink one as I write this. I also acquired a few vintage mini-dresses, a lovely sweater (also wearing now) and a mid-length black petticoat. These skirts don’t need a petticoat to give them body but I am wearing one anyway! The black one is just the right length.
All for now and see you next week,
The main reason that I love this film is that Cathy wears the most gorgeous red satin dress in an earlier scene. It’s a pity there isn’t more of it but she does wear other nice clothes as the film progresses. We don’t see nearly enough of the “Culottes” either but there are some nice suspender shots.
I have no idea what the film is about!
