Vintage at Goodwood

I got so caught up in the whirl of Vintage at Goodwood yesterday that I didn't take a single photo! I tried to do better today. Vintage is awesome, by the way - I'm having the best weekend! Yesterday I spent most of the day shopping - trying to snap up the bargains before they all went. I bought two fantastic 1940s dresses from Tasty Vintage's stall. I also invested in one of What Katie Did's bullet bras, which is extremely comfortable - I'm planning a review of this and the corset I recently bought from them.

There are at least two beauty parlours on-site, which will do hair and make-up, but I couldn't make an appointment, so these frizzy little victory rolls were all mine :)

Shortly after arriving I met up with Retro Chick - looking "peachy" in a fabulous 50s dresss (from ebay US if I recall) - for some Pimm's, which was v jolly. I also caught up with another blogging idol, Fleur de Guerre, at The Chap Olympiad. Unfortunately I got a bit star struck and came over as a bit of a gibbering fool, but never mind (Hi Fleur, I'm really quite eloquent in real life, honest!).

Meanwhile, I was selected as one of the 'best dressed' by Sunday Times Style magazine and invited to participate in a little catwalk parade. I also got photographed by Grazia magazine, a researcher for Miss Selfridge and Spanish national newspaper El Pais.

I finished my day watching The Noisettes' set on the main stage.

Tomorrow I'm planning to spend more or less the whole day in the 1950s Let It Rock arena and the 1940s Torch Club, since I haven't managed to make it inside either yet!
