I hope this little Sunday post finds you well. As I type this, I'm sat on a train on the way to London, where I'll be spending a couple of days with my friend and vintage shape mistress, Zoe Lem – working on a bit of an exciting project (fear not, I'll share all in due course).
Two weekends ago, I was also in London with Zoe, where I spent all of Sunday hanging out and enjoying the most beautiful displays and exhibits at Zoe's Vintage Wedding Fair.
And I had an absolute blast!
I've never before enjoyed visiting a wedding fair so much in my life – the atmosphere was just fabulous, a totally laid back vibe, that was carried along by the gorgeous jazzy sounds of The Bellinis (who specialise in jazzy reproductions of pop music and who feature in the film below). So much gorgeousness filled every room of the beautiful venue, The Old Sessions House in Clerkenwell, everything was laid out beautifully, every room lured you in and made you want to go and explore more. Champagne and bubbles flowed and the most beautiful models (one of them a very glamorous and elegant burlesque artist) stopped people in their tracks as they almost seemed to float around in the most heavenly vintage wedding gowns (including a killer dress by Elizabeth Avey that I will be blogging about soon, oh my!).
This little film by ION Products really captures the spirit of the day…

The next Zoe Lem Vintage Wedding Fair (where I will be exhibiting myself, along with my brand new book!) will be held in April 2013 at Bloomsbury Ballrooms in London. Contact Zoe directly for information on attending or exhibiting.
Make a note in your diaries now ladies and gents. Forget any pre-conceived notion of what 'wedding fairs' are about. This occasion is going to be something else.
Today is Rememberance Day, and at 11:00 today, I will be joining our nation in two minutes of silence to remember our fallen heroes and all those that have fought at war. On this day seven years ago, I was also sat patiently awaiting the arrival of my first born. The beautiful little girl, who eventually arrived a whole eleven days later, has gone on to enhance and enrich my life in so many ways. More than ever, today, and especially with so many wonderful, exciting things happening in my life right now, I appreciate the security and safety that the fallen heroes and those who survived fighting at war have provided us with. God bless you all, you brave and courageous soldiers, we have so very much to thank you for, and we will never, ever forget.
