Brighton has a particularly good branch of Peacocks, and, indeed, well stocked smaller branches in the Brighton 'burbs like Port Slade (or 'Hangleton Borders' if you're an estate agent). I prefer not to buy online as sizes, fabrics and so forth can be sorely disappointing if not seen first, especially at the lower end of the high street (price wise, I mean, being myself rather more gutter than stars). Thus, I tend to check out their website only before a trip to somewhere with a large branch.
I'm glad to say I found several items that appeal to my somewhat gaudy impure vintage self. Glad because they look nice, they're cheap, and of course I am such an oompa-loompa that their overly short skirts are actually quite wearable for me! Mwahaha!

Righto, I'm off. Apparently someone's getting married- to some toff she met at uni, ceremony in the local abbey, mum-in-law's ring, buffet afterwards. This is how Princesses get married, and one would know- after all, this Princess has experience of just such things. She would strongly advise checking the best man for hip flasks prior to any speeches being made. And double checking one's ladies-in-waiting for the same item with regularity throughout the day.
One lives and learns, people, one lives and learns. Enjoy the bank holiday!
