As someone who's been single for a couple of years now, I'm always on the lookout for some susceptible chap which I can nab as my own.

Who could forget the floaty dresses? I own lots of nice 1950s prom dresses with floral prints, and also have my eye on these little beauties: http://www.lindybop.co.uk/all-dresses-c1/audrey-cutesy-pink-candy-stripe-50s-inspired-swing-dress-p1501 http://www.vivienofholloway.com/women-c70/dresses-c10/grace-victory-rose-cerise-p436 (being … Continue reading Spring has sprung!

His wife, we are told, was greatly distressed … Continue reading Works if you work it
