Retro and Vintage Festival

Tee from ASOS| Shorts from Topshop| Necklace c/o A Midnight Wonderland

The Weekend saw something a little different for my home time, an event that I wanted to go along to and thought it would be great to cover on Stephanie Dreams too.
The Brunel at Swindon hosted a Retro and Vintage Festival over the Weekend, show casing beauty and makeup, fashions, cars and lifestyles of the 1940's-1960's. A free event within the shopping centre as well as a vintage fayre and the car show case just outside. 

I got to wear my Topshop sale shorts (at least) and love how well they worked with my casual tshirt and statement necklace. My trusty Newlook boots were able to carry me around all morning, running after the models or snapping away at the vintage goodies that were for sale.

I adored seeing the fashion from the 1940's and 1950's, I think it was so well put together and very pretty. The amazing "Carry on Vintage" store based in the Brunel, played stylist for the Fashion show and the models were just incredible. The hair was flawless and their skin was picture perfect ♥
My favourite part of the whole day was no doubt, the "Blitz Buddies" a group of people who get together at events like this and showcase their true passion for the 1940's. We were given a very funny run down of the fashion from different people in those years, and they really got into character. They are doing another event in Lacock this summer, that I will certainly be attending. I really love that decade and find the war years very interesting too, I loved how much passion and effort they put into it, and it's all just for fun!
