The Weekend Starts Here

I haven't been to a vintage weekender for about 18 months now so was very excited to finally get to go to the Rhythm Riot last month (I was meant to go last year but things didn't work out). For those of you who aren't familiar, the Rhythm Riot is a 1950s Rhythm & Blues and Roots Rock'n'Roll weekend at Pontins Camber Sands. The whole of Pontins is taken over for the event (so there aren't any 'other' people wandering in to look at all the strange vintage people) and it's basically just a massive party with great people, great music and great vintage shopping.

Louise Dahl-Wolfe (1895-1989) is one of the most important women fashion photographers of the first part of the 20th century. A new exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum (the first major retrospective of her work in the UK) focuses on her 22 years as leading contributor to Harper's Bazaar. Considered a pioneer of modern fashion photography, the exhibition highlights how Dahl-Wolfe defined the image of the modern independent post-war woman.

Autumn Outfit: Houndstooth Skirt

Now that Autumn is in full swing I thought I'd show you a skirt that I recently finished making for the colder months. 

Goodwood Revival 2017

Goodwood seems to come around quicker each year and this year was no exception. I felt like I was only there a few months ago not a whole year ago! The weather wasn't great this year but that didn't stop us from having a good time, the weekend flew by.
