Hello Glorious friends Val here, sending you greetings from the land of red double deckers, mailboxes and telephone booths!
I am beyond excited to be sharing with you this set of photos taken by Rachael from Suitcase Home. Shot on our weekend trip in London where Rach, Terri, Kate and I had the wonderful opportunity to visit The Secret Cinema. Where we were immersed in the screening of Wes Anderson’s recent master piece; The Grand Budapest Hotel . Hence the fancy dress and the vintage inspired themed outfit.
I had bought this dress in my second week while being here in Leeds. This dress I saw at a vintage store, (Anntwackey Vintage) and despite my own reservations against spending money, I thought to try it on ‘for fun’. As soon as I slipped into this piece, I knew I either had one of two options; place it back and be immensely regretful about my lack of purchase or push my concerns aside and become the proud owner of such a stunning and classic dress. It did help a little that I could use my birthday as justification for the purchase but despite these small concerns, I felt like this dress is something which I couldn’t pass by. The stunning green and the gold lining, the high collar and the modest dress line all contribute to my love for it!
To finish off the 1930s inspired out fit I paired it with some accessories from the very amazing Primark, which Rach and I describe as; Target, with clothes that we would actually wear. Seriously each time I go into Primark, I never leave empty handed! The gold accessories match the gold lining of the fabric and the earrings and the clutch give the outfit a very glamorous Great Gatsby inspired look.
And for those who were wondering, London was amazing!
As a friend described it to me ‘It’s got a proper buzz in the air’
How I do wish I could dress like this everyday!
To let me know of recommended places to see/things to do/where to go/what to eat in London! Would love to hear from you!
