THE VINTAGE CARNIVAL


I am a vintage lover. I love the fashion and music of different eras. Yesterday I went to The Vintage Carnival held in my hometown of Nottingham. The carnival had a little bit of everything vintage including; shopping, food, cars and music. Despite the rain, we were determined not to let it ruin all our vintage fun!



The carnival was split across a racecourse, so lot's of space to go and explore! It was incredible to walk around with people dressed to the nines in their favourite era of clothing. A really special outdoor feature was all the vintage cars that were on show. It was so cool to see cars from different decades and to see how the style has changed and cars have progressed.






I was in awe at all the incredible clothing that was on show! So many people made such a huge effort to dress up and take part in the vintage fun, recreating the iconic styles of different eras.There was a Rock N Roll tent which showcased some incredibly talented musicians and the atmosphere inside was insane! It was great to just watch and enjoy the music whilst people took to the dancefloor to show off their best jive.




My favourite part of the day was the incredible shopping stalls available! As ya'll know I have a slight obsession with clothes so this was kinda a given. There were so many special pieces and I brought some incredible items.My favourite has to be the vintage red suitcase, it's so precious and I can't wait to use it.


I love going to the Vintage Carnival and diving back into the fashion, music and atmosphere of past generations. It's a great day to get dressed up, put your victory rolls in and listen to some killer classics. So if you see a Vintage fair or carnival coming to your town I hope you go and have a rockin time!

  17. I went to a vintage fair on Sunday, too! Have you ever been to Lou Lou's Vintage Fair before? It's not as big and impressive as that one (there are no cars!) but I think you'd enjoy it :-) The clothes are incredible!
