All the Fun of the Fair: Kingston

It goes without saying that everybody loves novelty. The prospect of something new is enough to get most of us giddy [heck, the thought of a new TOWIE or an untouched charity shop is enough to give me palpitations!] Imagine then, not the thrill of an untapped shop, but an untapped TOWN! Enter Kingston's Affordable Vintage Fair....

With the rails ready to go, we loved this traders' mix of frocks and brogues - hanging from the rafters, garments with sweet prints and candy-floss colours were enough to make even Katy Perry seem savoury...

For long days and even longer nights, sunnies are a staple. Away from the highstreet, many were opting for vintage specs to see them through. A fan of the Lennon look, rounded frames were a personal favourite [even though they're more Harry Potter than Rock n' Roll when sat on my face.] Vintage bikinis were a big-hit with retro beach-goers wanting to look the part.

Adding to the summer time 'vibe,' Now Voyager were on hand with some colourful numbers that were heads above the rest. [oversized orchids, birds of paradise and tiny yaughts to name-drop a few]

We loved this uber-opulent gown [defintiely Met Gala worthy - if only we could fly in Mrs Obama or Ri-Ri before they hit the red carpet, how smashing they would look!] Everyone loves fluidity in their threads and this dress was moving in every way.

Finally we loved this incredibly bright jumpsuit, reminiscent of Kim Cattrall as a loved-up living doll in 'Mannequin.'' Leggy, edgy and exceptionally eighties - love it!

Tune in later in the week to see steals from North and a wee preview as Judy's takes a trip to the seaside!
