Vintage fairs and evening fun

i just wanted to share what I got up to last weekend weekend, as it was a delightful time I had.

On Satuday evening i went to Fleur and Bethan’s birthday party. As I have a smashed iphone I couldn’t take any pics while I was there, but I did maange a couple of pics of my outfit before I left.

The skirt is particularly amazing. It is an original 50s items and has an insanely full skirt printed with bows in black and gold. The printing techniques are interesting, with the gold “overprinted” on the surface. I’ve never seen a skirt printed like this before! I wore it with an ancient black topshop blouse that I must have had for 6 years or so!

The night was lovely, particularly because I got to see my friend Jayne (from great lifestyle and beauty blog Jayne’s kitschen) this pic is stolen from her! Jayne and I used to work together back in Leeds over 3 years ago,  it was amazing to get the chance to catch up and shows what a small world it is!

On Sunday it was Farnham Malting vintage fair. Here I had a stall selling some of my vintage wares, particularly popular were the stunning Rhona Roy and Victor Josselyn dresses I had, these will be coming to ebay soon!

The day wasn’t just about selling, it was also about buying. I managed to buy just three items in the end, i was tempted to buy SO much more though. The fair had a great selection of both vintage and homemade items from a real variety of periods too.

The shoes came from another lovely Liz (of thewasherwoman.blogspot.co.uk) she had some of the most sensational shoes I have ever seen. It took great restraint to buy just one pair as they fitted me like a dream.

The hat came from a stall I forgot to take the name of (i think it might have been Carinsbrooke vintage?). The stallholders daughter was also one of the beautiful models in the fashion show.

I also bought this fab Laura Ashley maxi dress from the same stall. It’s an original 70s item and has an amazing hunting look novelty print.

On the day I also gave a talk about collecting, and compered the fashion show. I really enjoyed the day I have to say!

Big thanks to Fiona for inviting me along to come and do the talk and show!
