This is how my collection REALLY looks

At the moment, for the first time in four years I have my ENTIRE vintage clothing collection in one place. For one thing this is an incredibly weird feeling. There’s something about my own collecting habits that mean there is a satisfaction to have it split up (so I don’t realise quite how much I’ve collected).
Anyway! As it is all together (bar a few pairs of shoes and some jewellery still at my mums) I thought I would share some pics of it all.
If anyone is interested in further details about anything in the pics do ask away : )

Cheltenham Literature festival…or the night where 200 people saw my pants

Back in early October I had the pleasure of modeling for my dear friend Naomi Thompson at Cheltenham literature festival, along with Jenni Siggs of Yesterday girl. We were there to show vintage fashion from the underwear up, and help to promote Naomi’s wonderful book Style me Vintage: Clothes, which I review here!
Thanks to the ever wonderful Hanson Leatherby I have some wonderful pics from the event to share with you.
Here are a few from the day…
Naomi looking blimmin’ gorgeous, whilst I look an un-made-up mess!
Sat on stage in one of Naomi’s gorgeous vintage robes.
This is me in my pants ; ) My bra is from What Katie Did, pants are Topshop and the girdle is an original vintage number.
This was then topped off with one of my all time favourite dresses. This little checked number is by Alice Edwards. One of THE ultimate party dresses I own.
Sadly the bag you see here has now left my collection, some lucky person on ebay purchased it from me a few weeks ago!

The cocktail party with all of the guests post-talk!

…And just to finish, Naomi looking lovely with lots of copies of her fantastic book : )

Me on Southern Retro!

I simply HAD to share that I’ve been featured on Southern Retro!!!

The lovely mat Keller came and photographed me at my mums house ( you can see her lovely vintage cocktail bar and chair in the background!)

So what am I wearing? The dress is a 1950s number by Blanes with one of THE best novelty prints. I purchased this dress last year at Vintage @ Southbank. The earrings are huge 50s green flowers from Mela Mela in Teddington.

Hope you like the pics as much as i do : )
