This will be my third time at Judy's Vintage Fair in Edinburgh. I've come along way, in terms of my vintage identity since my first visit. Not only have I improved my wardrobe, but also my make up and hair styling skills. Even though my shyness is still holding me back a little, I feel a lot more unafraid to be over dressed and embrace my vintage style on a daily basis. A vintage fair is such a perfect place to be over dressed and wear your favourite outfit from your wardrobe.

This says "Bloggers Aloud" right?

What I bought from Goodbye, Norma Jean:

What I bought from Gladrags:
Issy May Vintage
Sadly my camera ran out of battery so I unfortunately couldn't get any pictures of this beautiful stall. Which not only do I feel terrible about, but I also feel silly for not checking my battery and charging it the night before. So you'll just have to believe me when I say - it was a gorgeous stall, which such a lovely owner.

What the items look like on
Sometimes simply taking a picture of a item doesn't do it justice, so I thought I would take some silly pictures of them on. That way you get a good feel for the construction and shape.

1960's Black lace Torsolette (That gives a great defined waist) - £12
White lace, circle stitch Bullet Bra (This is by far my favourite thing I bought, it fits my small 30D's perfectly!) - £15
Jantzen green bathing suit (which needs a little altering) - £40
Two pairs of Black fully fashioned stockings, Cuban and Point heel (I love ff stockings, but I have a tendency to ladder them. I laddered one pair whilst putting them on, but got out my clear nail varnish before it got any worse!) - £2.50 each
Yellow straw summer hat (My staple summer hat, I hope.) - £5
Vintage 'Salmon' coloured dress (I'm unsure of the age or decade. It also has some bad stains. But when I tried it on I really like the style and length. With a reduced price - due to defects - I thought I would buy it and give it a good home.) - £12

I never managed to take any pictures of myself, but luckily I had quite a few others to do that for me! The photographs seem to be a rippling effect. Once one person asked, others were more confident to ask me. So I ended up being asked several times throughout the day. I was baffled, but ever so flattered too. I thought it would be a nice idea to share a few snaps of me. Sadly there were one or two, that I didn't catch their names of. So I have only been able to track down a few images.
