I am so excited to hear about the Vintage Goodwood festival taking place from 13-15th August this year. It is the first of what will hopefully be a successful annual event that celebrates British music and fashion from the 1940's through to the 1980's. They promise a mesmerising display of catwalk shows, hands-on-creative workshops, and a vintage hair Salon, as well as DJ's, Bands, vintage collectors and sellers of vintage clothing and vinyl as well as contemporary brands inspired by Britain’s rich creative and cultural heritage. Besides the main themes being Fashion and Music they say there is also going to be lots of great Food, Art, Film and design. I am really hoping to attend this festival which is taking place on the beautiful Sussex coast - a -->quintessential British getaway
Here are some looks from recent shows
Here is a fashion shoot Brooklyn Decker did for Elle Magazine Jan 2010. I love the three piece cashmere Ralph Lauren suit.
--> So before I forget Shop Girl from the blog Sugar and Spice wrote a really interesting article about online Fashion Stores charging for delivery, she asked a few fellow bloggers for their opinion on this and what they thought about High Street shops charging, something that personally puts me off when the delivery is quite high and adds a lot to the total price. Being one of the bloggers asked for her opinion I was super happy when she linked me into the post, as it's a great blog that is updated daily and is filled with interesting and inspiring fashion ideas, so when you have time check it out.
So back to the female dandy theme, my number one icon of the moment and a person who I think represents the cross over of masculine but still very feminine is Janelle Monae, whose style and music I am loving at the moment. Check out this video tightrope for amazing tuxedo dancing.
