Birthdays & Balls!

Hello! Well from the title you may already have some idea of this weeks post – YES it was my Birthday on Saturday & also ‘the biggest event on the vintage calender’ – The Chap Ball (or it’s full title – The 4th Grand Anarcho-Dandyist Ball) It is organised by The Chap Magazine ¬† which¬† is a celebration of everything an English Gentleman should be or at least aspires to be in the Twenty First Century.

It was my first London ‘Vintage Scene’ outing & I was some what of a debutant, which made the evening even more exciting. After much deliberation I decided to wear my ballerina length 40’s cobalt blue crepe dress, that to be honest, one will not have too many other occasions during the year to wear it! The Chap Ball was perfect…

I traveled up with the fine folks of The Vintage News & spent the evening chatting to many friendly people & admiring many an outfit! I also met THE Miss L Fire which was also pretty amazing!

It was a fantastic evening & I rolled in at gone 5am Sunday morning. Attempting to get myself out of my dress after many a Gin was somewhat of a challenge but a good time was had!
