|Gladys me and a wonderful 1920's eventaille|
Does the thought of seeing someone in the same dress at the same party bring you out in a cold sweat ? Do you long to wear gorgeous labels such as Yves Saint Laurent and Chanel however the budget always seems to lack ...... Would your life be more than perfect if you only had more accessories ???
If so you absolutely have to visit some of our fabulous vintage stores and fairs all over the country . Last sunday I paid a visit to the Vintage fair in the Royal Marine Hotel . The sheer glamour and fun was enough to set my fashion pulse racing ....... then I began to prowl through the stands overflowing with glamourous covetable things !
I found true love in the form of a turtle fan complete with black feathers..... fans being my latest fashion trademark when I'm working the party scene . Honestly , I thought I had died and landed in heaven when I stumbled upon Gladys . I felt a strong style bond with this fabulous lady . Alluring lacey dresses , fluffy eventails , headpieces decorated with diamonds and shiny stones ....... I have found another soulmate complete with vintage savoir faire and style substance !
|Gorgeous Gladys model .. Note the tiny waist !|
|Incredible mink coat with fox collar .....I 'm dreaming about it !|
The better clothing of the past has construction to die for so can you imagine my excited state when I saw Claire , and from under the table she produced a Thierry Mugler dress for me .... oulala , my ultimate hero , he who produced dresses that combined Hollywood retro and futurism , with rounded hips, sharpely accentuated shoulders and a hint of galactial heroine ! Je t'aime Thierry ! Bisous ....
So darlings , if like me , you will not settle for anything less than fabulous , next time you are in the mood for some retail therapy , wiggle along to some of the great vintage stores I adore such as
Dirty fabulous , Jenny Vander and Green With Envy . I'll keep you posted ....................
A massive merci to Donald , my photogragher and chaffeur for the day , and best friend forever ! XXX
