Yes, we all made it back alive from 1939!
Many spam sandwiches were eaten, Camp coffee was drunk and we danced to the sounds of the good old days. The cottage we stayed in was constantly covered in hair grips rollers and stockings and through the mist of hairspray there was plenty of Team Love as we all enjoyed a weekend spending time with one another.
Let the transformations begin...
This is me and my Brother. He's such a good sport, letting us draw him on a 'tasche. We had to be on tash watch all day and night in fear of my brother having a 'chocolate lip'!! Ever since I have started this blog he has been longing to appear in one of my blog posts. So here you are Bruv, you've made it!!
In the day I wore my dusty pink original pearl buttoned dress, matching earrings and brooch, a 1940's umbrella to shield my heavily sprayed pomp from the drizzle and 'Rita' my black fox fur. We didn't seem to come away with any evening outfit photos, we must have been too busy gasbagging and admiring everybody else, however I wore my new Bettie Page Pea green dress with a little wicker hat.
The photographer who took this is planning on making the photos he took from the weekend into greetings cards....keep your eye out for us in Paperchase!! (I wish).
Well, now that I am back, I'm working on the hair tutorials that I used on the weekend to show y'all. Keep in touch, don't be a stranger!
Love as always, Lucille x.
