As the days get longer, so our clothing needs change. There are the holidays and weddings that seem to fill up our diaries and present new challenges on our wardrobes. What of the quest for the perfect day dress, professional enough for work but foxy enough for the last minute drinks invitation that always seems to ping on our phones on a sunny day? And let us not even begin to consider the challenges of festival wear, which has to be every bit as versatile as the changeable weather but still look cute and covetable. The good news is that the forthcoming Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair aims to assist in some of these potential sartorial nightmares and leave all looking dreamy.
Whether you’re looking for a cache of tea-length day dresses that are perfect for wafting round the lawns of the Port Eliot Festival or a 1950s bathing suit to team with your Hunter Wellies at Glastonbury, help is at hand. And who said that only bride has to stick to the rules for the wedding season? You can pick up something old and something new (to your wardrobe that is!) that will make you the best-dressed guest of the season. Furthermore, with all the new luggage restrictions your holiday wardrobe might feel potentially limited. Our solution is to add some unique accessories to bring separates to life. A case of choosing between fabulous costume jewellery, gorgeous footwear, chic silk scarves or throwing caution to the wind and purchasing the lot to ensure you stand out from the crowds. We guarantee that our discerning and friendly vendors will leave you spoilt for choice.
As ever the fair returns with Kirstie the tailor turning everything you buy into a couture fit piece, Minnie Moons, the retro manicurist of choice, the simply delicious tea salon (more courgette cake anyone?) and Noelle Vaughn on the mic singing the best jazz standards to accompany the day. Join us for the final summer fashion fling and give the regular and dare we say it, boring sales a miss. We so are!
