I wanted to share with you three of my outfits from Rhythm Riot in November of last year. For those of you that don't know Rhythm Riot is a weekender in Camber Sands and one of my favourite weekenders of the year. The only problem is that with it being in November it tends to be pretty nippy. This year I had a chalet buddy of the female persuasion, my gorgeous friend Christie, who is an incredibly talented print designer - check out her Facebook page. It was lovely to have a girl in the chalet as normally it's just me and I'm often left to my own devices as Francois has a Vintage stall at most of the weekenders and is off working all day.
I really enjoyed Rhythm Riot this time, this was my third year but I got a lot more out of it than the previous year and saw a lot more of the acts and stayed out till the end, 5am, two out of the three nights. I did a little shopping and wore my new to me amazing 1940s hand painted and beaded balloon sleeved blouse! It was a present from the boy's last buying trip in the US and it has to be one of the best pieces I own!
Saturday night was the time for big hair! I wore a full length late 50s cocktail dress which made me feel amazing, there's nothing quite like a full length number to make you feel glamorous. I did a big updo as I've recently been really inspired by late 50s, early 60s updos. We caught the end of Bobbi Brooks Wilson's set (Jackie Wilson's son) and when we were chatting to him later he said I looked like I dream of Genie! That made my night.
Francois wore his insane 50s Monster tie. It is crazy with hot pink, lime green and blue featuring the creature of the black lagoon.
The next weekender I'll be going to is Viva Las Vegas in April. To say I'm excited is a total understatement. I already have most of my outfit's planned and this year the beautiful and inspiring Pip Jolley is going to be coming to LA with her boyfriend afterwards with Francois and I for an extended holiday. So much to look forward to!
