How I want to dress right now

Minus the oversized sunglasses, this is exactly how I want to dress at the moment - dungarees (preferably a flattering fit in jewel-coloured velvet - they're so hard to find) teamed with a stripy breton top and matching headgear. Of course, a good pair of platforms (I'm thinking my lace-up Swedish Hasbeens boots) on my feet. For colder moments I'm dreaming of topping it all off with my Mum's 1950's cowboy knit cowichan or 1940's style chubby fun fur swing jacket.

I've got everything else - now if somebody could just point me in the direction of my dream dungarees...
