Review: Flapping to 'Puttin on the Glitz'....at the British Library!
And what a glitz it was! Greeted after the great large doors, it was an impressive sight to behold already, as the grand staircase and layers of walkways framing an elegantly large white space in the British Library was almost like a Cinderella story setting. Rummaging through my phone to locate the ticket whilst I queued, having forgotten to print it out in my haste, I was lucky enough for the lovely Fleur McGerr from the Vintage Mafia as well as the 'Diary of a Vintage Girl' (Blog ) to remember me once I got to the reception table. After greeting Fleur and saying a warm 'hello' to the rest of the Vintage Mafia, I went though the crowd in search of Naoko as well as Rachael whilst taking in the buzz of excitement that surrounded the place. Together we headed to the fabulous pop-up beauty parlour to get Naoko's hair done for free and bopped along to the orchestra in another long queue. Snacking on old fashioned popcorn and sipping orangeade later, we watched the crowd waltz as well as laugh.....spotting the most spectacular dresses as well as ladies. It was then that I spotted Miss Cherrylicious the vintage model and stylist, so a picture had to be snapped....especially when she was wearing such pretty shoes! There was an abundance of photographers around and it was really the perfect setting, but alas....we forgot to have a fun snap at the photobooth which I had been looking forward to earlier. Except for the long queues for drink, hair and so on, it really was a fabulous event for a very affordable price and we had a really a roaring time!

I shall most definitely look forward to the Vintage Mafia's next event and I loved the idea....of how 'Puttin on the Glitz' can be a personal interpretation of wearing whatever you feel most gorgeous in! It really is about your inner Moxie, as often in life we may not get the choice of everything, but to have the audacity to believe as well as work for what you believe in or want makes it a beautiful journey. This can be true for many, and most certainly so when I see vintage lovers of all walks of life gathered in the same place for a similar passion...a reason to enjoy vintage events too. I shall also be looking forward to Judy's affordable vintage fair in Bethnal Green this weekend, in preparation with the girlies for my special 1930s Birthday bash in a little more than 2 weeks time. Here's wishing all you lovely darlings a very fabulous Bank Holiday weekend!
Until the next time,
