Vintage


Well dear friends, you only have yourselves to blame for this!  You asked to see some of the ensembles I wore for the recent Vintage Fashion Show, so here they are:  a silky top embellished with beads and embroidery (Next) and a very beautiful lace dress and jacket (Florentyna Dawn) which made me look decidedly 'mother of the bride'.  I also wore a pale pink chiffon evening dress, a brown suedette trouser suit and a slinky bias-cut silk dress.  It was actually all more fun than I imagined.  No-one took it too seriously and I didn't feel as self-conscious as I expected, walking down the red carpet.  Maybe I could get used to that kind of attention!

The event, as I said before, was to raise funds for a local Christian charity, the Zephaniah Trust, that does good work with children and young people in schools and youth clubs.  I am pleased to say that over £1,400.00 was raised - a good evening's work.  Congratulations to all those involved and special thanks to Julie at Zeph Trust and Heidi, our own church youth worker, who both worked extremely hard for weeks to organise the event.

  11. Thought you were supposed to be a grandma? I don't see the point in being one without the right image- you are all dressed up for Halloween as a young film star!
