Free frocks & ... that's it.

Oh hi!

Here begins an edit to the previous post...

It seems that, due to adverse weather conditions, the Retro Festival has been cancelled. This is a huge shame, both for the Mafia and me; and for everyone involved with the festival. Let's hope it's reinstated next year.

But it's rather better news for you lot! The competition to win a Heyday Fleur is now open to everyone in the UK. We're keeping it UK as the weather here has been SO VERY HORRENDOUS (see above for just one of many things it has ruined this summer) that we Brits need something to cheer ourselves up. So enter away, please. The frock of your choice will be posted to you when I select the winner.

The rest of the blog shall now continue, almost as it did before. Here it comes...!

How would you, yes YOU, like to win some stuff? I've teamed up with Heyday to offer you just that. Stuff. To win.


'What is the stuff, though?' you may be asking. Let me tell you!

You can win your very own Heyday Fleur dress in English Rose or Daisychain, so you can look just like the girls of the Vintage Mafia! Or like yourself. Up to you.

Crab claw impressions optional.

The Fleur is lovely in the black colourways, both black with daisies and pink roses: you can take your pick of the two, and your size (of course).



All you need to do to enter is to leave me a comment below (and be in the UK)!

Tweet about the competition publicly (by which I mean, don't begin the tweet by @-ing me, as only people who follow you AND me will see it), for an extra entry; but you MUST leave me a second comment to say you've done so for it to be counted. I will be matching comments with tweets, but it's all to make it easier to draw.

If you'd like a third entry, you can do a post on your own blog, but again, you must leave me a third comment to say so, with a link to your entry.

So, without further ado... get entering, gals!

Fleur x birthday

Fleurs + Gin

I'll close it a week today (19th July 2012). Good luck!

Fleur xx

PS. Please don't comment unless you're entering! Ta muchly.

  117. I have the Mary dress but not the lovely Fleur and what's more i am unlikely to be able to affod to buy a Fleru dress and time during the next millenium to to my enoermous vets bills. (she has a heart problem and a back problem) was attacked by another horse, ripping a huge hole in her neck and narrowly missing the juglular vein (i supose you could say that was lucky) She had to be stitched up (out of hours-more money) in 3 layers taking 2 hours, Hence huge bill and two sad faces (hers and mine)
    I need cheering up, surely.

  118. I am entering and wishing all of us good luck! blowing a kiss to Fleur x

  119. So far this month I've had to buy a new car, then got a speeding ticket for doing 32mph (PAH! and MEH!), then the washing machine hung itself with an array of stray socks and I had to replace that too. I think after all that boobaar I'm entitled to something free.........right? haha!! xxxx

  135. Thanks for this contest. I know it's a rather mundane comment, but genuinely, I'm sure whoever wins this will feel like their day has been brightened. I rarely wear black dresses but les petites flears and the cut are loving and have enough detail to make the dress really flattering. Hope the next week for you holds more experiences and times to make you smile.

I too was looking forward to the Vintage Festival...sob...But, there is always next year! Thank you for the chance to win. I now have fingers crossed, and toes...let's hope cramp doesn't set in!
