On Wednesdays we wear pink!

This outfit has been the best vintage ensemble I think I've ever worn. As soon as I tried this hat on it was true love. I hesitated slightly before I bought it for £35 but the colour was perfect for my hair colour and with tilted saucer style it just screamed fabulous to me so I went for it. I've been after a pair of white gloves for ages and I picked these up too that day for only a fiver. I don't quite know why I haven't had a pair sooner and they really do complete the outfit. Now this dress I found later that day after many purchases and it was a complete fluke and my goodness it was a jolly good fluke!

I was browsing through a bargain rail where lots of tat was up for grabs and this little beauty was among it: a vintage prom style dress for only a tenner! The question was though, would it fit? I went to try it on in their make-shift changing room and I admit it was snug! Simply adorable though and I hoped and wondered if it would match my new hat too....and it did....(cue the fanfare sound effect).

I felt like a superstar wearing this outfit and seemed to attract a lot of attention with my fabulous hat getting lots of love. I'll admit the shoes are not vintage but with dancing and walking you need a decent pair of shoes at Twinwood.
You cannot be too precious about shoes at Twinwood as there's loads of stones, grass and mud and you need function over form. I have been pretty unlucky with vintage shoes in the past as they just don't seem to have the staying power that I need. Walking to and from work in the rain is pretty tough on shoes and I often have shell out for re-heeling and sole repair.

I often find reproduction shoes are they way forward to complete a vintage look and I don't tend to gravitate towards vintage shoes when shopping. I am so excited for next year's Twinwood already!
