Upcoming fair!

I love that vintage isn't considered just 'a London thing' anyone.  Hertfordshire now has some great vintage shops and The Hertfordshire Vintage Fairs.  I'll be at the next one which is in Berkhamsted on 12th September.  See you there!

The Fabulous Goodwood!

For those of you who got to go you'll know just how amazing it was.  Goodwood was just vintage heaven! 

Although I enjoyed having a little part of the high street it did mean I didn't get to see and do all the amazing things on offer.  There was everything from the 70's Soul Casino, the 80's clubs, a roller disco, vintage hair & makeup, cocktails, champagne, music, girls strutting around in vintage bathing suits - it was just another world!

I think the highlight for me was the people watching.  Most people had really made an effort with their vintage outfit and it was an amazing site to see outfits from the 40's right up to the 80's.  50's and 60's dresses and amazing hair styles were in abundance but I think there was a real lack of 70s outfits... maybe next year. 

My only disapointment for was not being able to wear high heels due to all the mud!  Let's hope for better weather next year!!

Countdown to Vintage Goodwood!

It's been a hectic couple of weeks sourcing all these lovely items.  Along with Goodwood I have events booked almost to the end of the year!  I'm now also busy searching for some great homeware and items of furniture.  I love 50's and 60's pieces.  I just today picked up a great 50's coat stand; it's coming with me to Goodwood this weekend. 

So, I took some photos of some new items of clothing ready for this weekend.  I have great items from 1950's dresses (a la Mad Men), some amazing 60's & 70's swimwear plus 80's jumpsuits plus all the usual accessories from hats to bags!

I'll be updating more once I'm back and I'm going to try post an item a day.  Plus I'll be tweeting my new bits and pieces and telling you all about the lovely fairs & events coming up.  One's at a casino!!
