    It's that time of year again when we are receiving lots of enquiries and orders for vintage clothing and accessories suitable for the upcoming Goodwood Revival weekend. We are pleased to report that  we have once again kitted out both regular and new customers for this year's (sold out) extravaganza which runs from 12th to 14th September and we hope they all have a fabulous time revisiting the glory days of the iconic motor racing circuit.

    There's still time to order that last minute vintage (or vintage inspired if you aren't a purist!) dress, handbag, hat, gloves, shoes or other accessories  from our catalogue. We even have a handy Get the Look: Goodwood Revival section to make it easier:

    "The Goodwood Revival weekend is like taking a trip back in time, not only for motor sport enthusiasts but also for vintage fashion aficionados, as ladies and gents dress up in authentic period costume to reflect their own favourite Goodwood era from late 40s to mid 60s. Many of our customers are Revival regulars and we find our vintage frockery flies off the rails in anticipation of the extravaganza every September."

    If you see anything  that takes your fancy, we offer a speedy next day special delivery option to make sure your order reaches you in time. Our sold items are mounting up, though, so best get motoring!

  • Good to go for Goodwood

    September 12, 2013

    We have been embarrassingly neglectful of our blog for the past few weeks, mainly because it has been so busy at the frock face. With one frocker down due to illness and the chief frocker off on a couple of  trips, we have had to prioritise the business nuts and bolts to get the orders fulfilled and stock updates posted. Our customers like to keep us on our toes!

    This year's upcoming Goodwood Revival weekend has seen a huge surge in interest in our wee website and we have had a very busy couple of weeks kitting out Goodwood-going customers (both preloved and new!),  as well as providing pieces for Goodwood-inspired photoshoots. We hope the lovely Jenny, Sarah, Liz's mum, Sam, Emma, Christina and other Goodwood-goers have a great weekend rocking their frockery!

    Normal blogging service should resume shortly as we catch up on ourselves, but here are a few Goodwood goodies to 'get the look' -  even if , like us, you aren't going to the extravaganza this year.

  • Goodwood Revival

    September 16, 2010

    The Goodwood Revival takes place this weekend and promises to be another great celebration of the golden years of Goodwood’s automotive history, from 1948 to 1966.

    Designed to recreate a unique heritage motor sport experience, with the original racing circuit restored to its former glory, the three day festival will showcase classic racing cars and feature celebrity drivers.

    The Revival weekend is like taking a trip back in time, not only for motor sport enthusiasts but also for vintage fashion aficionados, as ladies and gents dress up in authentic period costume to reflect their favourite Goodwood era.  Some take it very seriously indeed!

    We are pleased to say that a selection of our own vintage frockery will be making an appearance at Goodwood this weekend, from military uniforms to mini dresses, and we are looking forward to seeing the photographs (taken with a Brownie camera, of course!)

    Why not take a browse through our Get the Look: Goodwood Revival department for some dressing up ideas!
