Happy Saturday! I hope you’re not quite as freezing as I am today?
How are we all feeling? I had a week at my mums, which was more about decorating her house instead of relaxing – but I came home with a fresher mind than before. If I get over this head cold I’ve accumulated, of course! On Thursday we looked at what was going on around the Goodwood Revival site. But we didn’t see much style, did we? So for Style Saturday we’re going to look at some Goodwood style!
If you read the last post, or happened to be on Instagram on the 8th September, you might of known I got invited to Goodwood Revival. I was invited to be an influencer with Mastercard’s Revival Fashion, which meant I got to sit front-row to their fashion show.
The production values for this show were out of this world. It followed a “High Flyer” through the Riviera life in the heyday of Goodwood’s racing. To remind you, that’s 1948-1966.
This show was made up of higher-priced items, mainly. Goodwood’s target market isn’t exactly working class, and this show really reflected that. After the show there was a dress mentioned to be from a shop “Just across from Harrods” and I knew I wasn’t in Kansas anymore. But hey, fashion shows are for inspiration, right? At least there was some beautiful items from Revival Retro and Seamstress of Bloomsbury to see!

Out of the whole show, they did the 60’s best out of all the decades. I didn’t get a picture of her, but there was a singer that was amazing, wearing the most gorgeous pink lamé dress. Complete with beehive and big ol’ hoops, of course.
It was a great show of immaculately timed dancing and smug faces on the male lead, but it did come up a bit short on a few things. Mainly the men’s trousers – why does everyone think men work ankle grazers in the 50’s?!
But now let’s get on to my style!
I’ve had this Lindy Bop Marianne suit for a while, but for some reason never wore it before. I’ll never know why, because I love it! It was a sample I received a while back, which is possibly why I’d not reviewed it for fit before. I wouldn’t say the jacket is the best fit for me, but the fabric is forgiving in that respect, and the colour is great.
I’ve come to realise that royal blue is my colour. I stick out like a sore thumb amongst people who were dressed more authentically. But it just looks so right on me, don’t you agree? Even these pedal cars made an effort to match!
