Vintage at Goodwood Day 3

It was pointed out to me that I have as yet failed to update with more photos of my third day at Goodwood. I really want to make a huge shout-out to all the wonderful people I met over the weekend including Kitsch Kitten and many many more, who were sweet enough to compliment me on my outfit. There were so many fabulously dressed vintage aficcionados there, and it made me realise that although I'm very active in the online vintage world, I've never got involved in the real-life vintage sphere, a fact which I'm determined to change - there's a whole world out there I've barely discovered!

I enjoyed the third day probably the most. I ended up wearing one of the dresses I bought from Tasty Vintage on Saturday, in place of the Big Apple Dress, which I didn't finish (it didn't seem worthwhile, since the forecast was for bad weather, but it turned out sunny in the end). I actually got to spend some time hanging out in the 1940s Torch Club, where I decided to take up swing dance classes.

I also met with Tim Hellzapoppin outside the Torch Club.

In between networking and fairground rides, I also still managed to find time for a spot more shopping - dearest Matin bought me a fantasticly gorgeous 1940s tea dress at Dead Man's Glory, who still had some keenly-priced decent vintage (they're based not far from me and I shall most certainly be paying them a visit!).

Navy blue and red is probably my favourite colour combination - and of course it gave me the opportunity to wear one of my growing collection of cherry hats! Do click to enlarge the picture for a better view of the detailing on this incredible dress.

We finished up the evening watching Gwendoline Lamour's burlesque show (loved the Jeeves and Wooster inspired golfer routine!) and the Beaux Belles at the Torch Club.
