Am I the only one who dislikes the new blogger compose page?
I don't like changes like the awful timeline on FB and now this!
I know change is good but it takes a bit getting used to and when
I blog I just want it to be simple. Is that too much to ask for?
Couldn't we at least have got to choose how we wanted it to be?

OK, enough with the rant...

I have my heart set on rocking the Bette Davis look this summer.
I finally found a pair of sunglasses that's quite similar to hers and
that also will suit me.
I've got a wig in that style and color that I could use if I want to.
I also got a pair of white shorts and white Palazzo trousers that I
can choose from depending on the weather.

Here's some items that you've seen in this blog before that I can
use to accomplish this style:

These arrived today, eBay, £5.20.

Vintage Laura Ashley, car boot sale find for £1 back in May 09.
I just need to switch that navy blue ribbon to a red one.

Sailor wedges, gift from my man in August 09. 

1950's wicker bag, £21 on eBay back in March 09.

Hi, Just wanted to say how much I love your blog. And I was so excited for you yesterday when your 1940s style sun top was one of the items in the daily Etsy mail. Bet that got you lots of visitors for your Etsy shop.

Best wishes from Signe, Norway

I switched my blog layout as soon as the option came out BECAUSE I KNEW.... I would have a hard time adjusting. *lol* "And what do you know?!?! I barely remember how it was before now. *lol*
I do remember I did not like it at first though.

And seriously you have some really cute vintage stuff. I love those shoes, sunnies and wicker purse!!

I agree, bloody FB, blooody blogger - it takes me so lopng to find anything! I already know what I was doing in the first place - then they go and change everything. My head hurts and I have no kids to show me to use the new technology. *sobs*

It is a fabulous look. Can't wait to see you rock it.

I love that sailor blouse, it looks like it could be really versatile.

I thoroughly dislike Blogger's new look. I still have the old version on my mobile phone, but it's updated on my computer.
