The summer holidays have come to an end and Retrofestival seems like a distant memory – I do have a little souvenir to cheer me up though.
At Retrofest, I happened across the Flamin’ Star Clothing stall. I’d never heard of this company before and I really wish I had! Originally we went in to look for some menswear for my better half (we did find something for him!) but then something caught my eye…
The print of my dreams on a single circle skirt – the only one of its kind left. I was adamant I wouldn’t buy anything that day but of course this last skirt was in my size and it was telling me to buy it. I did and I have absolutely no regrets.
Why do I love the print so much? Firstly, the colours are so bold and vibrant. Also the variety of colours gives you so many top and accessory options. Chillies add more magic to the print as I LOVE hot and spicy food. I have never been to Mexico but this print really makes me want to go there!
Beth from Flamin’ Star was an absolute darling – she even gave us lots of tips for our upcoming trip to Las Vegas. If you’re going to any vintage festivals or events, be sure to visit her stall.
I know I’ll be wearing this skirt for Viva 20 but I had to take it out for a whirl during my shoot with Sue. I kept the look simple with a pink bardot top, poofy black petticoat, black heels and a bright hair flower.
I love this look so much and I can wait to play round with other colours and looks. Do you have a favourite print? What makes an amazing print? Let us know!
Thanks again to the talented Sue Phelps Photography for another wonderful shoot – who knew you could make Bracknell so glamorous? Keep an eye out for more blog posts featuring Sue’s beautiful images.
