70's Skirts & Vintage Flirts





With designer Samantha Kennedy

Last Saturday night I attended the penultimate show of fashion week for 2013 organised by Le Chat Noir Vintage Events which saw a vintage fashion show take place in an old derelict Protestant church north of the river in Cork City. The whole experience was more of a 'lesson' for me as beautiful pieces and trends of the times from the thirties to the eighties were showcased. I have been a self confessed vintage snob in the past as I always felt that the price-point of non-designer vintage gems were often just too high. Lately however, I have picked up a few pieces online and in vintage stores, as I found I have finally bought into the potential character of the piece as well as the decade it originated from.

If I could go back to any of the previous fashion decades it would definitely be the 70's due to my love for long unruly hair, full floor-grazing maxi skirts, floral crowns and Volkswagen camper vans. My outfit for the night was unintentionally seventies inspired as an underground world of vintage lovers gathering amongst the candle lit church each demonstrating different decades of fabulous fashion. I had been gifted the beautiful full floor satin skirt by Samantha Kennedy from one of her previous collections, accessorised by my red metallic Lulu Guinness Lips clutch and my new letter 'V' necklace from Topshop. With the high waist nature of the skirt I opted for a mesh nineties long sleeve crop top available from Asos here. The night was truly enjoyable, a huge congrats is in order to the organiser and vintage boutique owners for putting on such a magnificent show.

In other news, I announced on my Facebook page that I have made the FINAL 10 of the Herbal Essences 'most naturally beautiful hair' competition! I can not believe it, I am so grateful and shocked! I would be so appreciative for your vote to be crowned the winner and have the opportunity to appear in a UK hair magazine campaign as well as all the other goodies! Please take 30 seconds to vote for me HERE.

Tomorrow night I am off to the Brown Thomas Autumn / Winter event so keep an eye on my Twitter for snaps from that!
Until next time Ducklings,
Love Vera Xx
