Vintage Goodwood

September 3, 2009

Goodwood vintage

Thanks to the lovely ladies at Queens Of Vintage I've just found out about this new vintage festival held at Goodwood race grounds.  I went to the Goodwood Revival last year which is all 50's themed and celebrates vintage motor racing and it was amazing! Everything is themed to the last detail, the police walking around are in vintage uniforms, there are vintage stalls galore and most people dress up which makes it all the more fun!  The racing part was the only bit that didn't interest me, so it looks like this new festival will be perfect! Find out more here!!  I'm reserving tickets for my sweetheart and I ASAP! xxx

Jelly Shoes!

September 2, 2009

I have been looking for jelly shoes for a very long time!! Now I don't mean modern gladiator style ones that they sell in Office or the likes of, I mean PROPER jelly shoes.  Ones that you use to run around in on the beach when you were little.  I don't know why I've wanted them so badly, maybe a wee bit of nostalgia, or maybe just because I remember them being damn cool Summer shoes!! Anyways I have hunted in a many seaside town for them and they never had adult sizes.  Also the arrival of Crocs (awful, awful things) seems to have diminished the original jelly shoe population even more.  Call me stupid but I never really thought to look on-line (I know crazy!), however the other night I did and hey presto jelly shoes I found and in an array of colours! Pink, clear, black, silver glittery and yellow.  So I have hastily ordered myself a black pair as I thought the silver glittery might just be a tad too childish and border from nostalgic to just plain creepy!  I am now hoping that the sun will come back for just a little longer so I at least get to wear them!!

Margot, Margot, Margot Tenenbaum

August 10, 2009

I adore any Wes Anderson film, but especially The Royal Tenenbaums.  I find Margot one of the most interesting and multi-layered characters.  Love the kohled eyes, sleek hair and fur coat especially!  Also makes me understand completely why it is perceived as 'cool' to smoke, same effect as Audrey with her cigarette holder in Breakfast at Tiffany's.

This Is Moi……

August 6, 2009

So I am very aware that I am as of yet not put up pictures of myself.  This is not because I actually have three heads or I don't want people to know what I look like.  It was more to do with the fact that all recent photographs taken of me have not been the greatest, this is something that is a regular occurrence!! I am often the most un-photogenic and hard to photograph person in the world!!(Well maybe apart from someone with three heads)  Just ask my sweetheart, he will agree! He finally got some ok photos this week whilst we were out roaming the streets of the big city.  So here I am people, this is moi! xxxx
