Festival of Thrift 2014- What I wore

In keeping with the vintage/handmade ethos of the Festival of Thrift- I decided to style myself vintage. (Not that I don't try to usually try to inject a bit of retro into my daily attire)

I can't really think of much to say about this outfit- as the main components have already been featured in their own blogposts- dress and jacket. However, I decided to use my Orla Kiely shopper as my bag. British weather is unpredictable at the best of times, so I didn't want to leave without my jacket. As we left Whitley Bay, the sun was shining and it seemed that it was to be a lovely day, this soon changed as we got there resulting in my bag losing several grams of weight when I put my coat on. I went for my usual make-up, just with a slightly more defined cat eye. I also battled with a beehive to fit with my 60s vibe. Originally I was going for a complete beehive up-do, but as my hair tends to not take to back combing well, this was all I could get to work. As the day went on, it deflated a bit but spent the majority of the day looking fine. The only downturn was after I got back when me and my dad went to collect our takeaway and my hair seemed to have gone very flat and lopsided. 

I can't wait until next year when I'll get to do all this again. For any people living in the North, the Festival of Thrift is definitely something I'd recommend.

Until next time
