Today I’ve been talking to Southern Counties Costume Society all about my vintage collection, focusing in on my 50s dresses.
These are some of the gorgeous selection of pieces I took along with me.
It really was a great day as not only was I speaking but we had a talk from underwear expert Rod Quilter ( Rod is HILARIOUS- this tales about vintage underwear had me giggling all the way home). He discussed underwear of the 50s from the glamorous down to the downright frumpy. My particular highlight was seeing some amazing conical stitched bras. Swoon.

And this is the outfit I wore for the occasion! Miss L Fire shoes (my current faves) worn with a Gap black scoop back body and my 1950s Richard Shops champagne print skirt.
