Forgive us readers, for we have sinned…

 

Forgive us blog readers, for we have sinned; caught up in the madness and maelstrom of everyday life (and watching WAY too much ‘Game of Thrones’), we’ve ignored this little blog of late, putting it on a back burner so far away that said back burner is simply a blip in the distance. Well, ‘NO MORE’ we cry! But where to begin?? With life moving a mile a minute at the moment, we figured let’s play on that classic TV show trait and have a quick catch-up. Cue opening credits (bonus points if you comment below with a suggested tune that we should have as our ‘Judy’s Vintage Fair’ theme song…) and a booming voice as we give you ‘previously at Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair…’

We saw taxidermy at Chester…

…as well as some rather yummy cakes.

Coasters caught our eyes…

…and the Vintage Furniture Flea came to town.

We brought retro travel to Old Spitalfields…

…and got literary in Leeds!

We fell into red dress heaven at the Corn Exchange…

…and found some excellent specs to match!

And end scene! A lovely little visual treat, we hope that’s caught you up (and expect more from us this week!)

Retro Regards (and sorry once more!)

Dress to Impress!

Greetings vintage fans,

Sometimes, a dress comes along that is so out-and-out beautiful that we would sell our own mothers down the river to get it (sorry Mum, we’ll pick you up before the river hits the sea!) This floral ditty (pictured above) is such a garment! Brought to our attention by the aptly-named ‘Time of your Life’ vintage, we envisage having exactly that – twirling in parks, long lazy brunches, dance floors and weddings. Flower power to the max, we think we’ve fallen in floral love!

Yours longingly,

Bright Young Things at Cambridge

Greetings Vintage Fans!

Bringing all the glamour of the 1930s to the Guildhall last Saturday, we were STUNNED [yes jaw-on-the-floor STUNNED] by these gorgeous original ’30s gowns from Charlotte Rose Vintage…

With Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ only months away, we wish we’d bought them so that we could Charleston around a la Carey Mulligan all the way home!

 

Retro Regards,
