Reet Petite

I've only got in the door a few hours ago from my amazing weekend away at the Twinwood Festival. It was such an incredible weekend and my first ever trip to this particular festival.While most people this bank holiday weekend were enjoying Notting Hill Carnival, I took a trip back to yester year. I've decided that an entire 'Twinwood' related post will be coming up after this outfit post, as there is just too many photos. Day one I wore this little number which I haven't worn ever since it was kindly gifted to me from a family friend. The quality of it is fantastic, complete with boning in the bodice which is something I really rate and something you really don't get these days in dresses. If you're looking to define your waist and upper torso it's all about the boning.

I was simply giddy with excitement all day long and the classic cars on display were incredible. The owner of this Cadillac car actually let me sit in it and do my thing. What a lovely gent he was! It was possibly the most incredible car I've ever been in. If I win the lottery one of these beauties will most definitely be one of my impulse luxury purchases.

Dress- Vintage
Shoes- Vintage
Earrings- Primark
Orchid- Monica's Vintage Fair
Sunglasses- Bought that day from the festival

I recently lost my favourite retro sunglasses so I was on a hunt that day for a new pair and I picked up this beautiful blue beauties! Which I am completely obsessed with. I've got quite a long face and some of the smaller retro sunnies don't suit me so finding a pair that works is a rarity!

Stay tuned for more of my adventures at Twinwood

  1. I have heard so much about the Twinwood Festival being amazing, I'm so glad you got a chance to go!
    That Cadillac is BEAUTIFUL, if only they could start making cars like this again *sigh*.
    Your dress is so beautiful, the print is amazing and this whole outfit looks so gorgeous and summery. I really like your sunglasses too, finding ones that work your face shape can be tricky and these really do suit you perfectly!

  2. Ohhhhhhhh my gosh. Yes. Stunning. This dress is beautiful (YES BONING!!!), and holy wow, you look smashing. So many people have old cars like this around where I live, and I just DROOL over them!! I agree with Harlow - WHY CAN'T THEY MAKE VINTAGE REPLICA CARS?! They'd make a fortune! Can't wait to see more pictures from this festival!!
