Some people follow trends and hanker for the latest lust-have but I tend to intermittently obsess over fabrics.
I bought this 'Miss Jeannie' dress on eBay a few years ago when I had a huge thing for all things lurex.
This fabric certainly isn't everybody's bag with its often quite raspy texture but that is one of the main reasons to why I love it so much...
its raspy and spangly qualities is what does it for me :)
There is also something rather space-age about lurex that really appeals to me.
At the post office earlier the cashier asked me if I was wearing red because of Valentines day...as if!
Roses, chocolates and champagne
Last table booked down lovers lane
Twice the price, sans ambiance
Will expensive gestures induce romantic trance
A pricey card with a contrived poem
Because on February 14th you have to show them
Thanks but no thanks, Mr Valentine
I think I'll just choose a different day to express mine
|Vintage 20s tux jacket, 60s lurex dress, 90s mesh top, lurex tights, fishnet knee-socks, tartan print boots, sequin beret & 90s silver sun earrings.|
If you do happen to be a fellow lurex lover then I've got a stunning floor-length 90s bodycon dress up for grabs in my eBay auctions, go check it out, it's got more cosmic girl sass than you can shake a stick at ;)
I was in two minds about sharing this next pic but then I thought to myself...
"Jen, since when did you become such a prude"?
For Valentines day 2001 I wanted surprise Mark with "naughty"card.
This was back in the days when digital photography was still a bit of a rarity and most people (me included) had to traipse down to snappy-snaps to get their photos developed.
So I took some near naked pics wearing just some self made nipple covers and a barely there thong.
Was I worried about handing my film in?
Thankfully, the local chemist that I used didn't have an in-house lab
so I was spared any blushes when I went to pick up my little envelope of saucy pics.
I bought some heart shaped stickers placed them strategically and the card was all sorted.
Needless to say my beloved was thrilled ;)
This of course begs the question...
If you were to become famous tomorrow, have you any reason to fear the scandal rags?
Lot's of love,
