The Vintage Edit

My vintage edit: what has been rocking my world in the last seven days.

BBC2’s Back in Time For Dinner transports a family back in time to live, and more importantly cook in the 1950s through to the 1990s. This week, they were in the 1960s cooking in an early baby blue fitted kitchen, however the food was still quite bland at the start of the decade. By the end, they were enjoying ready meals, European cuisine, keeping their food chilled in a new fridge as well as dining out at a newly built service station. This is great TV, and can be watched again via the I-player

Adam’s parents dropped off all his games from his childhood: think Atari, think Battleship as well as the obligatory Lego. However, we all enjoyed playing Stay Alive.

My new extremely wide brimmed hat from Primark which has a great 70s vibe to it. It’s a really good shape and looks a lot more than £4. I reckon these will sell out FAST.

The team behind those fabulous pompom lashes which we featured in our 1980s bridal shoot came to our London fair last Sunday. In Your Dreams create amazing sparkle and boho looks to your face using a plethora of sequins, making me want to go to Glasto now!

Why oh why do they not make adult clothes as cute as kids clothes? These funky 70s style flower power hotpants and cute smock dress are from Next and my lucky 4 year old now has them for her holiday. I meanwhile, am offered nothing so fun nor frivolous.
