I cannot believe that Goodwood Revival 2017 is upon us already! It really doesn't feel like a year since we were last at the event! This year the event is the 8th, 9th & 10th September - for details please visit https://www.goodwood.com/flagship-events/goodwood-revival/
For those that haven't been - Goodwood Revival is one of the premier vintage themed events of the year and revolves around racing of vintage vehicles at the Goodwood Race track nr Chichester. Apart from the racing, visitors on this 3 day event are strongly encouraged to dress up in vintage attire and many do so! There are competitions for best dressed and it's definately a high standard!
We have been attending for 7 years and we have a double stall in the Revival market which is inside the track. So do come and say hello!!
Things to note for Goodwood Revival First Timers:-
- if you don't dress up you will regret it
- take something warm just in case you decide to stay late - it can get very cold
- you may have to walk a fair way from your parking - take suitable walking shoes and change. This can also save precious vintage shoes from wear!
- you can get your hair done but its worth booking in advance
So this little post is a a little preview of new items we have brought out especially for Goodwood Revival. Many are limited edition and we've tried to create a new style for each era!
1940s - The 40s Goodwood Grable Dress
This is a smashing new 40s ensemble that we have created with Goodwood Revival in mind!
A new limited edition for our best selling tea dance dress we named after wartime pinup 'Betty Grable'. This is a limited edition pale blue floral print paid with luxurious black crepe and a matching black crepe bolero lined in the print!
So if you fancy wear 40s - this is a great modern take on a 40s dress set. The bolero is perfect as a coverup for the chilly evenings too!
1950s Connie Swing Dress in Navy & Cream
This is an exquisite new style dress that was based on an original vintage 1950s garment. So if the 1950s is your thing then this is a great dress you dress up or down. Pair with a faux fur, petticoat, tilt hat and heels for a great 1950s look.
If you are busty, this dress gives plenty of room and due to the batwing sleeves that cover the upper arm, is comfy and easy for movement. Waist band under bust creates a lovely nipped in silhouette together with a full circular skirt which can be worn with or without a petticoat.
1960s Coco Sheath Dress & Jacket
Chic early to mid 60s empire line sheath dress with matching crop jacket. This dress has it it all - smart, elegant, versatile with a shot of sass thrown in. Perfect for Goodwood Revival!
This is a elegant and sophisticated suit for early 60s fans and is the epitome of early 60s fashions. A must for ladies who love grown up glamour.
Very Coco Chanel and Jackie O - this is a brand new design we are totally in love with!
