Goodwood Revival 2014


If you're up to date with my Twitter you'll know that I went to Goodwood Revival a few weekends ago. I went with my family who all dressed up in 40's / 50's / 60's attire and spend the day watching races, going vintage shopping and checking the sky for spitfires.

We saw a few races on the track - they were really cool. There were 50's saloon cars and racing motorbikes which all made a tremendous roar every time they zipped past us.





We found a Buick car similar to ours in this beautiful mint colour.

There was an amazing fake street on the site which included a full 1950's Tesco made to look like it would have 60 years ago. The packaging on everything looked so cute!



We popped in a Roope Vintage eye-wear stall which had the most spectacular spectacles in it.

An under pass to get to the other side of the race track.

Hannah strolling along the paddocks which hold the million pound race cars.

Seeing the original spitfires ripping through the sky.

The drive home in our cute fifties car.

This is a little taste of the Goodwood vibes - hope you enjoyed it and are now persuaded to attend next year. You can check out Hannah's outfit here and my outfit  post will be up soon!

Bombshell Babe






In our recent trip to Goodwood Revival, we went all out with the dressing up. My sister Hannah went for the swinging sixties look working a geometric shift dress (a mother's-wardrobe favourite). She styled it with the vintage red colour-pop bag and and super retro chunky heeled sandals. 

The most exciting part of creating this look was putting together her big bouncing beehive. This is just the beginning of a beehive-a-day lifestyle that I can feel coming on. We also managed to find her future car - this cotton candy coloured Cadillac!

Cornerstone

Song of the Week 9
Cornerstone
Arctic Monkeys



I've had this song swirling round my brain for years and upon listening to the whole of the Arctic Monkeys album Humbug again it stuck out and brought back memories of Alex Turner wearing that red jumper - and therefore melting my heart. So just sit back, relax and listen to this chill tune.

Fa Fa Fashion Week





Necklace - Topshop
Top - Topshop
Skirt - H&M
Bag - New Look
Shoes- Topshop

For my appearance at London Fashion Week last Friday I decided to go slightly sixties. This top is a old Topshop piece from many moons ago and has a totally radical sixties inspired print and big black buttons on the back. I've teamed it with a plain black skirt, tights and velvet shoes, to put all the attention on the top. I accessorised with a statement necklace and a simple but stylish bag, giving the whole outfit a black, white and orange colour scheme!

Ong-Oaj Pairam SS15














Ong-Oaj Pairam was a spectacular affair. Held in Freemasons' Hall the collection showcased a fantastic array of pretty pastels, interesting silhouettes and different fabric types. Pieces that stood out like a (beautiful) thumb were the billowing dresses and the showstopping green-blue-purple tiered wonder. The addition of menswear in the collection added dynamic and picked up on the wearability. I really loved the shiny accents on the jacket sleeves and the groovy gladiator heels that could catch anyone's eye. Overall, a girly yet sophisticated collection that I will gladly tip my hat to.

Pearl Jamming

Song of the Week 8
Garden
Pearl Jam



All I have listened to this week is Pearl Jam due to meeting someone who feels the same deep grunge love as me. Choosing one song to sum up the week has been difficult yet I think that Garden (my favourite one of theirs) perfectly brings together the relentless energy and chilled out vibes that I have been feeling lately. Also this song is perfect because even though seldom seen by most, for me it holds so many of my best memories.

Faustine Steinmetz SS15










I have finally started to plough through the pictures from London Fashion Week which I attended on the Friday!

First up was the wonderful Faustine Steinmetz presentation. It showcased a collection of clothing inspired by forgotten pieces, which are all handmade from scratch in their East London studio. The craftsmanship in every piece is absolutely amazing and every piece is unique. An interesting touch was the ironic golden clothes tags which made a statement. I was thoroughly impressed by this presentation which was laid out beautifully, and whilst walking around I had to stop myself from reaching out to feel the texture of the woven garments!

More fashion week posts coming your way...

Double Trouble Denim


My sister recently got all of her summer disposable camera pictures developed and has now acquired a mound of photos fill with festivals and fun. I dug up this gem of Hannah and I taken in Bristol whilst we were walking down Gloucester Road. The camera accidentally had a light leak which has created the super cool red fusion on the left.

In this picture Hannah is wearing a stained glass window dress from New Look with a vintage denim jacket and New Balance trainers. I'm wearing a tartan Topshop skirt teamed with my vintage Levi's denim jacket and Adidas trainers. Together we are filling up the street with an extortionate amount of denim - worthy of a fine!

It's a Party Anthem

Song of the Week 7
No.1 Party Anthem
Arctic Monkeys



Come on, come on, come on, before the moments gone... This is possibly my sister's favourite song ever so I've been hearing it a lot lately - not a bad thing at all! This song is super chilled and lovely to listen to in the evening when you're feeling nostalgic and whimsical yet still vivacious.

That Shirt






Another beach outfit! I threw this wonderful vintage shirt over some simple shorts and a t-shirt. The print is so wacky that it speaks for itself and the purple hues match my hair which is tied in a cute bun. I bought this shirt in Bristol and I have to say it is one of my best buys! The loose style means that it can be worn for lounging around, yet it also packs a punch with the garish pattern. 

The necklace I'm wearing here is made from string and some beads which my mum bought from Glastonbury. I literally just fashioned it from a few knots and voilĂ  a groovy necklace.
