The event I shall be gracing with my presence is this one:
It's being put on by some friends of mine, and, as you can see, they have asked me to 'appear' at it. Though, in reality, this just means I'll be there and might do something like hand out the Best Cake Prize or some such trifle... I'm mainly just there to have a jolly good time.
But since this is mainly a vintage style blog, let me tell you what I'll be wearing... which will both plug this smashing new frock, and give me the opportunity to show off some new modelling pictures... I do like to multi-task!
As you all know by now, I teamed up with Heyday to produce a self-titled wrap dress called the Fleur. It's had a couple of incarnations so far, but this one may very well be my favourite as it's so versatile, not to mention in one of my most beloved colour-schemes.
The red, white and blue Fleur is the perfect patriotic frock (if you're one of the lucky nations that have this colour on their flags)! It's absolutely ideal for wearing to Royal Wedding celebrations, the Diamond Jubilee, Liberation Day in the Channel Islands, Independence Day on the 4th of July, Victoire 1945 in France, Victoria Day in Canada, the Queen's Birthday in the Antipodes... well you get the point. Even if these aren't your country's colours, it's the perfect 1940s combination and looks absolutely super with matching accessories!
Shoes are by Rocket Originals, and the hat belongs to the photographer... sadly!
Shona had such fun being snapped by Gordon on a beautiful sunny day. I think these pictures show how these Fleur wrap dresses can be made to suit your chosen era with the right accessories and hairstyles. On Gem the Daisy on Black looks 30s, and on Claire the English Rose on Black looks mid-late 50s! Go and have a look on the Heyday site for more shots of the girls (and more of me, if you aren't bored of my mug already)! Anyway, as you can tell, I'm just as enthusiastic as ever about these fantastic frocks, and I hope you love the new version as much as me. As always, they are limited edition and once they are gone, they won't be repeated... so go and grab your now and if you're in the UK, wear it next Friday with patriotic (or just plain vintage) pride.
I leave you with the whole gang in our best catalogue poses, modelling the whole Fleur range. See you next time!
