My goodness you should have been with us on Saturday for the vintage styling event with Kittys Vintage Kitsch. The start time was 11am and I arrived bright and early at 9.30am to assist with getting ourselves all organised.
I am utterly thrilled with the atmosphere of the day and so pleased my introduction for Celia went off pretty much without a hitch. It was a small intimate group, nibbling on cucumber sandwiches, strawberries, yummy cheeses and other delights with a little sparkly punch. It felt like a bunch of old friends getting together, but in this instance it was new and old friends. A lot of gushing could be heard over each others fabulousness, and I’m sure some of the pictures will show you why.
Celia took the group through it all from foundation garments, girdles, knickers, long line bras and how they are beneficial for getting the right silhouette and shape.
The colour wheel and how using all the different colour principles can and will assist in putting together an amazing vintage outfit from head to toe.
We had Elisse on hand who talked vintage hair, pin curls and how versatile they are in achieving so many different vintage hairstyle looks. Oh and let’s not forget make up, the eyes, the lips we learnt about that it all.
The gorgeous Sheri Bomb, was styled and we learnt about key 50’s looks and how to identify them. Below the knee people, below the knee, otherwise a 50’s style dress above the knee is likely that of a “50’s style” and a reproduction. There are obviously other key identifying points, of which are best to look at on a whole with a dress rather than individually. Oh and we gushed, look at Sheri rocking a second look and feeling all magical.
Mimi La Muse was our other gorgeous style attendant, and I for one must admit I was in complete raptures over this dress. Why? Look at that GREEN, we know I’m nuts for it, but oh my goodness if only the pictures could really do the colour justice. Everyone gushed how Celia popped this outfit with modern and vintage accessorising.
As you can see it was an amazing event, everyone left feeling they had learnt so much and perhaps gained some new friends.
