Goodwood Revival and a new name!

It's been too long since my last post...I'm so sorry! But I've been to Goodwood Revival and it was fabulous! I was even approached and asked to be a finalist in the "best dressed"! Very honoured to be asked as the fashion on display was amazing. Ladies looked so beautiful and the gentleman dashing. Anyway I believe pictures speak louder than words so I've posted lots below. It's defiantly now an annual event in my callander.

You may have also noticed a blog name change , I have been busy setting up a vintage online shop! I'm very excited ad I'll link into my shop from here with all my finds and items for sale.

Victory Ball and Goodwood tickets

The Victory ball was brilliant,full of glamour and beautiful vintage costumes. There is nothing like a full swing band to get people dancing! Photo below of my friends in their vintage inspired outfits at my house prior to the ball.

I'm also back from completing the Manchester marathon and in 1980s vintage :) as I did it dressed as Wonderwoman! I've also qualified for London next year ( my time was under 3hours, 50mins) so I need a new outfit idea for that....vintage obviously.

My tickets for Goodwood revival arrived too and the document holder is all in style so I've posted pictures below. My thoughts will now be turning to my husband's outfit .....

Reproduction vintage and buttons

As I've started my collection of vintage clothing I've found myself realising that my figure and height etc is more suited to the older styles from the 40s than modern day clothes! For example, I bought some reproduction 1940s jeans recently from 20th century
And I'm loving have jeans with a waist! No more hip hugging jeans which are very unflattering. I also bought a Bettie Page inspired jumper with three quarter sleeves and a shorter body which sits perfectly on my waist - no more big and baggy jumpers that swamp me. Brilliant website with beautiful reproduction clothes and I'm addicted already :)

And now for some delicate work as I try to mend the buttons on my 40s wedding dress for tomorrow. Wish me luck as I feel very nervous sewing on something so beautiful and old.

Nearly forgot to thank my photographer who is my 7year old aspiring vintage collector too , thanks Kimmy xx

Vintage ball outfit and hair

So my outfit is also sorted now and I took some pictures today after the hairdresser played with my hair. Trying to channel Rita With my hair style :) I think Donnie from Rainbow Rooms in Stirling did a fab job!

Then my jeans also arrived from 20th century Foxy and they fit perfect so I posted some pictures too.
