Haworth 1940s weekend
I was originally going to wear my vintage sailor dress and vintage shoes - but my feet were hurting from last night so I wore my Freddies high waisted jeans and 40s repro top with some black and white flats. I'm so glad I did because we had to walk a long way - and there were lots of cobbles!
The village is very small and quaint - and VERY busy! It was such a good atmostphere though - the sun was shining and everywhere was decorated with bunting and 40's posters and props. There were lots of people dressed up - everything from full dress coats, hats and furs to GI uniforms, policemen and land girls. We had planned to have a pub lunch - but the pubs were so full - or had ran out of food - so we walked a bit further out of the village and had the most delicious fish and chips sat in the sun - how very British!
Michael had a great time taking lots of photos in black and white. He likes to take observational photos rather than posed, and he got some great shots. Here are some photos from the day....B&W by Michael, Colour by me!
Freddies. Bangles and Earrings - vintage bakelite. Glasses - Vintage 1950's from Dead Mens Spex. Hair in victory rolls - well, it was a 40s event!
