Although I see myself as a 1950s girl at heart, I do love the fashions of the 1930s and 1940s and do have some 1940s outfits (some of which have already been shown on here.) The only thing is, with my short hair I can't do 1940s hairstyles any justice so I resided to wearing a headscarf on this occasion!
This is going to be a photo heavy post - it was a gloriously sunny day and so many people dressed up and looked fantastic! I thoroughly enjoyed the day and would definitely go next year.

I am wearing a late 1930s-early 1940s dress which I had recently purchased from Fab Gabs. I have mentioned this Etsy shop before - it is beyond amazing! When I found this dress, it was originally at the pricier end of my budget spectrum and I wasn't sure about purchasing it but when I woke up the next morning there was a 25% off sale so I bought it immediately. You can say it was meant to be mine! The dress does actually have a fairly big collar which I don't really like so I have tucked it in and I prefer this look. What I love about this dress is the amazing swing skirt it has - it would be great to go dancing in!
The sunglasses were a last minute purchase from Topshop, so sadly not vintage. I really want a pair of 1930s sunglasses but it is the kind of purchase that I wouldn't want to make online - some vintage glasses that I have tried on are really narrow so I am hoping I find one at a fair or shop some day soon.

All in all a great day out was had!
