The event was ok - I was quite disappointed with the classic car show as there wasn't that many cars there and the vintage fairground rides were for children only - not the ones that I had anticipated! It did redeem itself by having a few excellent traders and I did buy 3 items that I love - a 1940s/ 50s brown bolero (I've wanted a bolero for so long!), 1950s pink and grey roses dress and a 1930s parasol (as seen in my last post, I have been desperate for a parasol and was so glad to finally purchase one!)
As it took place at a National Trust house, there were a lot of people there who weren't aware of this vintage event and I did get some eyebrows raised at my outfit.
This dress is from Dethrose Vintage and I purchased it back in November. After waiting about 10 weeks for it to arrive and a number of emails between me and the seller, I was given a refund in February. Then in March I received an email from the seller to let me know that this dress had arrived back with her! After 4 months of travelling the globe! She asked if I still wanted it, which I very much did and I re-bought it and this time it did arrive at my house! It is a lovely lightweight cotton 1930s/1940s dress and I love the cute geometric print on it.
