Goodwood Revival Day 2

For day 2 at Goodwood Revival I wore my favourite bluebird dress, with a 1940s suit jacket I got on ebay (I wish I could wear the whole suit but the skirt doesn't fit, as is usually the way with vintage suits and me. It was obviously originally made for a small lady, as the sleeves are very short on me), and accessorised in red and pink.

Goodwood Revival is a really great event. Being held at the same place and so close to Vintage at Goodwood, I can't help but make comparisons. It has all the fashion and style - in fact in many ways more, since a greater proportion of attendees make the effort to dress vintage (and being a slightly older and wealthier clientele the vintage dress on display is often breathtaking). It also seems in many ways a more 'polished' event - again this is perhaps to do with the clientele and their expectations - but everything about the presentation is just spot on, from the cash machines in traditional phone boxes to displays of garage paraphernalia and automobilia that lined the walls of the GRRC marquee (which I got into as Daddy's guest). But I couldn't really pick one event over the other - it just depends whether you're after cars or music!

Anyway, on with the fashion!

There were some seriously amazing hats out and about!

Love the lime green, black and white 60s colour scheme.

I also ran into Fleur de Guerre at the Heyday Clothing stall, where I tried on a pair of their fabulous swing trousers which I really really want - but could I really wear trousers? I haven't worn trousers in years. Anyway that's a topic for another day - I just wanted to give a little shoutout to Shona, who was very helpful and said she's read the blog :)
