FABULOUS VINTAGE FESTIVALS
What better British thing to do than go to a Summer festival and the vintage community really do deliver with both Twinwood and Goodwood Revival taking place in August and September.
Twinwood – 25th – 28th August
Where: Bedford, UK
What: Twinwood is very much about the entertainment and literally dancing the nights away.. A mix of Rockabiliy, Swing and Soul, we dare you to keep your feet still.
A fabulous few days for the Lindy Hop lover this festival is a mix of music, fashion and style, shopping and people watching.
The only dilemma you face is what to wear?
We have put a couple of looks together to give you some ideas.
Pretty in Pink…
Channel our inner Barbie with this all pink look.
The colour pink and vintage go hand in hand with references such as Grease – pink ladies and also it ties into the youthful look of the era.
Fabulous Florals… Blossom in Blooms of all colours
Embrace the fabulous fifties floral trend. Highly patterned and lifelike flowers really burst onto the catwalk and down the high street during the 50s.
Goodwood Revival – 8th – 10th September
Where: Goodwood, Sussex
What: Goodwood Revival marries the love of vintage speed with the love of vintage style harmoniously. This is one for the whole family and is a real display of all vintage eras and fashion. Shopping, music, racing and fun all come together to make a great day out.
What is so interesting is the mix of style from the 1920s to the 1970s there is something for every vintage lover.
Again we have put together a couple of looks to inspire you to raid your parents or grandparents wardrobe or find online.
Racing Green..What better colour than green to give your vintage look a head start. We adore this 1940s style blouse and cream flared turn-up trousers by Seamstress of Bloomsbury, Green shoes (vintage) and Printed Scarf. Green clip-on earrings by us
Dare to wear… Stop the traffic in this ensemble of rouge.
We love the sophisticated style of this outfit, perfect for watching the cars zoom by, just remember to hold onto your hat!
