Did you know I'm from rural Ireland? I'm a country girl at heart, but have spent the past ten years living in Dublin, Paris and London. I may have suggested that Dublin was THE place for charity shops in my last post, but in reality nothing will ever beat the UK, especially the regional towns. Lincoln and Canterbury have thrown up some major vintage and secondhand bargains for me, and the tiny village of Whitstable in Kent (famous for its oysters) provided me with the pheasant jumper from my last post.I am so looking forward to my next trip to Engerland - Wetherspoons, a bunch of topnotch charity shops and a bag of Twiglets (aka the world's oddest snack) will a happy bunny make.
So today's title was inspired by yesterday's outfit - I always feel like I'm in a Country & Western singin' costume with this vintage dress, and am the happier for it. Can I add that I am very much looking forward to seeing Country Strong with Gwynnie because I'm a big fan of hers. I know, I know, she's the most boring celebrity in the world but I like that. I also like the way she makes a kind of deluded effort to reach out to us with her website Goop and, you know, if I won an Oscar I would blub like that too (except you wouldn't have seen me in a marshmallow dress).

And here's Tuesday pinkfest. I am mixing patterns - a first for me. I think it works because of the very delicate pattern on this lovely Windsmoor blouse, my Mum's.
