A (mini) vintage date for the diary

Jesse's Threads

Californian vintage kidswear brand Jesse’s Threads is holding a one-off clothing sale for ages 1-10 this weekend in east London (July 31 & 31, 11am-6pm). Even if the 70s corduroy jump suits, dungarees and cute all-American denim jackets don’t take your fancy, it gives you an excuse to sample the delicious cakes at Violet, which is hosting the event in its charming London Fields cafe on Wilton Way.

Vintage date for the diary

I can’t believe its a year since I attended the first ever vintage-dedicated festival at Goodwood (incidentally, it’s also a year since my vintage wedding - how time has flown!) For its second edition, the festival has come closer to home to London’s Southbank Centre for a three-day party that will see the Royal Festival Hall transformed into a vintage pleasure palace. There’ll be live performances, make-up parlours, vintage stalls and a funfair, as well as an array of recreated nightspots from yesteryear - from pre-war cabarets and ballroom swing dances to prohibition-era charleston clubs... not quite sure how those will fit beside the acid house warehouse parties they’re also promising, but I’m certainly intrigued!

Vintage romper

I couldn't resist this little vintage-style number from Buggies and Bikes on Broadway Market - love the gorgeous floral print which would be perfect as a little summer wedding outfit. Don't worry, I won't be dressing Milo up in it but I'm sure it will find a suitably stylish owner sometime soon!
