Goodwood Revival 2011

Just catching up since I missed posting about this year's fabulous Goodwood Revival! It was, as always, a great weekend (except for the downpour on Sunday). I had the very lovely Claire staying with me for the weekend, so for the first time I had a vintage buddy to hang out with (not that my Daddy isn't great company, of course, but he's generally more interested in the cars than the fashions). She's also a great photographer, and took most of these pics.

I went with a tried-and-tested ensemble, the same one as I wore for Vintage at Goodwood last year, with the addition of a record hat and bodacious victory roll by Ruby Rose (unfortunately the carefully-set curls mostly fell out due to the wind and humidity).

We met up with the gorgeous Gemma, who was working in the mock-up "Ops Room" in the hospitality suite (to which we didn't have a pass, so she had to sweet talk the bouncers into letting us in to see).


We chatted with Spitfire pilot Charlie Brown (and his moustache), and Claire got to sit in a spitfire, lucky girl!

It was nephew Teddy's third birthday weekend, so on Sunday we attended en famille. He really enjoyed it - he liked looking at the planes, and bopping to the swing band (quite cute).


That's me with Josie of the Chequers Inn - she organised the week's vintage events there.

  2. I really want to go there one day with my vintage car... but it's quite far away... Must be hard to find a room perhaps booking really early is the only thing to do!!!

  3. Isn't the revival fun! I've been a few times, but have become priced out of the fun.
    You look lovely by the way and your hat is so sweet.
