Reet Petite OOTD

Hey lovelies!
Hope you're all doing splendidly, this post is something I wanted to share with you. 
My passion of the vintage era grows with not only my thoughts and the way I live but also the way that I dress; when I'm not at work and I go to retro events I go the full way with make-up, hair and of course the overall outfit.
The last event I attended was the vintage carnival at Nottingham racecourse, there was so much to do and see but the only downside was the weather, I tried to get some pictures when it settled down but that would have been the only thing I would have wished to have been different.

I'm going to start posting more of my outfits of the day if you enjoy them, just let me know your thoughts in the comments section!

What I wore ..

Dress - LindyBop
Belt - HellBunny
Jacket - LindyBop
Shoes - Topshop
Underskirt - LindyBop
Bag - Vintage
Necklace - Vintage
Head Scarf - Bow and Crossbones

Also here are a few captures I got of the day of some of my favorite parts of the event!

I had a marvelous time and met some great people; my goal is to attend as many vintage events as I can especially those in the bigger cities, as well as post the outfits so you can get some ideas if you'd wish!
I find it exhilarating to dress differently and to live it, walk down the street and hold your head up high; if you're happy with the way you look that's what matters.

Beauty Advent Calendars launching 2016 - Top Picks

From luxury to affordable, this year is no exception to find your top advent calendar.
I will admit, only last year was the first time I actually ever had a beauty advent calendar, I was always tempted to buy ones from the clothes show when they were on a special offer but went away empty handed. 
But now it's got to the point where all the launches of Christmas gifts, wrapping paper and cards have hit the stores and we get cheeky glimpses of beautiful packaging with delicate doors to open on the countdown of Christmas. 
But the amazing thing is opening these travel sized or full sized items to get continuous use out of them till the new year!

So shall we have a look at what Beauty calendars are out now or soon will be?
Get your wishlists at the ready!
