Out and about....Southbank Vintage

From Fashionistable
The Southbank on a sunny day is an amazing place to be at the best of times. But couple that with a Vintage festival and the place just sings. I was asking Trine if I could take her picture when I suddenly noticed she was with 3 other beautifully dressed people so of course I photographed them all.

Both these couples exude vintage glamour in the true sense of the word. They had just come from dancing in the main indoor part of the festival where Trine had just foxtrotted for the 1st time. Brian told me they all know each from meeting at different vintage events. The next one being a big replica 1936 weekend, New years Eve party. Bet it is going to be amazing. Trine is a stylist and told me that the best part of her day so far was being with lovely friends and the 22 piece band Ondrej Havelka and his Melody Makers. The ladies kept their vintage sources secret but Brian is mostly in 1950s attire and Gordon's look is from an earlier era and is comprised of 1930's linen trousers and a jacket which was found in a trunk from Indian colonial days. His wonderful battered bag is an old ammunition case from the war, the hat is a panama and shoes are1930s Oxfords.

This is Gordon and Envy do you remember them from here?

Absolutely gorgeous! I don't know if it's their smiles or the light hitting them just right, but these are such warm, sunny portraits. My favorite looks are Gordon and Envy's. I love the eras they draw from, and Envy's fascinator is so eyecatching! xx
