The Chap vs The Goodwood Revival #2

I hope you've been on the edges of your proverbial seats waiting for this second instalment of my adventures at Goodwood Revival? No...? Oh well. Here it comes anyway!

On Saturday, I risked life and limb in my very own Chap Olympiad duathlon - Three Legged Trouser Limbo, in which Mr Marlowe and I weren't a patch on champions Russell and Sarah with their Foxtrot tactic...


And Umbrella Jousting, in which I vanquished poor Marlowe with a flash of my leg...


Miss Minna also did a marvellously elegant Hop, Skip and G&T in her vintage uniform.



Watching the Best Dressed ladies and gents was a particular highlight! Great to see the lovely Nicola getting first prize in what was surely a very difficult field of competition!

The be-cardiganned chap won first in the men's... I loved his effortless style.

I had my hair in a floral-festooned updo, due to the slight hairsaster that occurred the day before, thanks to the rain and wind. The weather was amazing however, and I instead acquired a lovely arm and dress-neckline-shaped tan! 


Vintage dress: eBay
Green shoes: Rocket Originals, ages back
40s repro bag: Greetz from Tiz on Etsy
Fakelite brooch: Acorn & Will
Assorted bangles
Amazing 1920s car: a gift (NOT REALLY)

And that is all for today! Hope you're having a smashing one.

  8. I hope I can go next year! Was it my imagination or did I see your lovely face in The Bletchley Circle?

  9. I wish there were events like that in Canada! There are so many events in England and none that I've found here in Canada, so I have to enjoy them vicariously through blogs like yours. It always looks as though you and your friends have *such* a good time!! Oh, and I love your pink dress!! You look lovely, as usual.

  11. I'm sorry but I really must complain about your lovely blog. So far, you have forced me to add at least £500 worth of items to various wishlists, including nkuku bowls and jugs and Miss L Fire shoes! This is totally unacceptable and just can't go on! All of this inspiration you're giving me is going to drive me bankrupt! ;-) Seriously though, your fantastic writing style, classic dress sense and exceptional eye for putting things together have made the last few days (which I have spent very poorly) bearable. I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed reading your blog. It's fab!x

  12. I didn't mean to make my last comment anonymous - I also hope the start doesn't offend as it was actually supposed to be amusing!x

    1. Hehe, of course not! I am glad and sorry both that you are going to have to acquire such lovely things ;) x

    2. I regret to inform you that since my last post, I have accidentally become the owner of both Miss L Fire shoes and Nkuku bowls. It would seem I've become very accident prone since finding your blog! ;-) x
