|Some of the super cool and utterly sweet dolls behind the New Vintage Look!|
The event aimed to raise funds for a new neonatal incubator unit at the Royal Brompton Hospital in London and was held at the glamorous speakeasy styled burlesque club Proud Cabaret [Venue Link: proudcabaret], hidden right in the center of London amongst a tall jungle of concrete towers. Once you step onto the red carpet to make your way through the entrance, you suddenly feel like you have been transported back in time......where the silver screen is indeed still black and white, and the movie stars were the ultimate sex sirens of a sophisticated time of glamour. Not to mention the photographers at every corner of the entrance, giving it a very movie star feel, and making everyone feel very excited to have made a real effort in brushing up and being in their sparkly glad-rags! The decor of purple giant booths, swanky gold mirrors and extravagant chandeliers added to the glamorous feel of the night, and the friendly staff at Proud Cabaret also made the visit a pleasant one. Such attention to detail indicates that it is an event that has been thought through countless of times, and real effort has been put in to make sure it is a successful night.....more importantly it truly is a fundraiser for a worthy cause without any sarcastic philanthropy, and it is all due to a lovely lady co-organiser called Bethan Soanes from the blog *Nothing but Bettina Scarlett*!
But the highlight of my evening has to be hanging out with a group of fabulously sweet dolls, who I was so in awe of.....that it almost felt like meeting Vintage Nobility....and of course witnessing my first ever Vintage fashion show! Being a short noticed Tuesday evening, as I only found out about the event the week before, I quickly worked on spreading news of the event but somehow did not track down a companion to go with. As mindless as this may sound.....I really did not realise the fact that I was about to turn up to a new event all by myself until I stepped in to a large room with lots of white tables and purple booths.....apologies for my mindlessness my darlings but welcome to the world of May! So the next thing I did was purely down to luck! I just walked up to a purple booth with some lovely looking ladies and asked them if it was possible for me to join them. Little did I know that I just happened to join one of the coolest bunch of girls at the event....they were none other than Shona the designer of Heyday [heydayonline.co.uk], Gemma the hair and make up artist from Vanity Box [thevanitybox.co.uk], Shona the blogger from *New adventures in Vintage* and Kessie the designer from Lady K Loves [lady-k-loves.com]!
