Monica's Vintage Fair

So after weeks and weeks of saving my pennys, chatting about it with the girls at work and looking longingly at the date in my diary....Monica's Vintage Fair 
finally arrived and it did not disappoint!! 
It was a rainy Saturday morning and I cannot think of better way to spend it than doing a bit of indoor vintage shopping. 
Oh Hi Ken!
Now I have seen this mother and daughter duo on previous trips to the fair and they always look simply fabulous. Vintage perfection from head to toe.
Classic songs were sung by the fantastic wartime time singing trio 'The Three Belles' 
Who were so lovely too! Thanks girls for taking the time to strike a pose for me!
This is the lovely Dina who owns the stall 'Sundays Girl'. I have bought vintage clothing from her before and did again today! She also has a lovely blog too; check it out at Dina's Thoughts
Claire the organiser (the one who puts the 'Monica' in Monica's Vintage fair) getting her hair done.
Vintage Gucci anyone? Alas! Not in my size!
Jon's Mummy, Gilly bought this fabulous hat which I LOVE!!

So what did I buy? Well...

A beautiful pair of gorgeous (amazingly comfortable!) red heels; an early birthday gift from Brian and Gilly!

So these were my vintage finds and I just had to get them all! As you can see they are all super gorgeous and I cannot wait to wear them!


  1. That purple dress is such a nice colour.
    P.S can I nick that photo of me and the one of the whole hall showing how (crazily) busy it was please? will credit you obviously :)
