Today was a fab day! The whole family downed tools and went out for the day (literally…Mr YVL put down his spade and I closed the laptop). We went to Milton Keynes museum who are hosting a 1940s weekend today and tomorrow. Read all about it on our sister site here.
Not only was it a great day out and a chance to review the day for Vintage Bedford & MK…but I was also interviewing Lola Lamour for one of our “Favourite Era” blog posts.
The sun shone…but what to wear, especially as I don’t really own much 1940s clothing?
I ended up wearing a cream fine crochet vintage dress. It has a pale blue edging and a tie waist.
I teamed it up with my red Gabriella Miss L Fire shoes worn on my wedding day.
I chose my 1940s Plastiflex red early plastic clutch bag. I rarely use this one so I was pleased to get it out of the handbag trunk.
First stop there was to the vintage hair parlour. Sarah Doo Wop Do’s sorted me out with my victory rolls. I chose a poppy in my hair.
Mr YVL wore his 1950s trousers which belonged to his Uncle George.
It was a lot of fun and whats more I bought an amazing emerald green dressing gown/robe..I will leave that for another post!
Other highlights: Herbie met a policeman!
Dress: Vintage (I can’t remember where I bought it from!!)
