Over the weekend we visited the two day FESTIVAL OF VINTAGE at York Racecourse where the only horses we saw were clothes horses.
Suits me as I don't like the four legged variety.
We thought we would walk across the racecourse to the venue
but then realised that wet grass and suede high heels don't mix.
What a fabulous event. This is my outfit for the first day.
The dress has a little jacket with it and cost me £12 a couple of years ago
and the swing coat is a favourite of mine.
I picked up some fabulous pieces.
This Morley cardigan is part of a twin set, British made.
The dress doesn't have a label but is a gorgeous pattern in crimplene.
I love the colours.
The dress and jacket is made in France and has the label Tricosa.
I picked it up off Stockport trader Jane Hamilton for £25
and wore it on the second day.
This PUTINA dress came from Jane as well.
Can't find out much about it but it is like a sari material and is lined.
This happy little number is a Dacron by Dupont and was a tenner.
Once we get some sunny weather I will be wearing it with last years
Orla Kiely pink and gold buckle retro shoes.
Buying vintage clothes is a winning certainty and the only type of bet
I will put on as I know they are odds on favourites for a return
on my money when I want a change of wardrobe.

Keeping in with the jumpsuit theme, I did manage to find a pic of me last year in this one I got in Bath when visiting my sister.
Its not worn very often as I can't do with the hassle of getting
it off in a hurry haha !
