The Bombshellettes…

Posted on

I”ve been loving this band for a while and was so excited to hear they where going to be playing at the Vintage Festival last weekend! Unfortunately for me they were playing on the Sunday so I had to miss them! It sounded like I missed an amazing gig as everyone I’ve spoken too couldn’t praise them enough!

I got introduced to The Bombshellettes when my friend was describing the band that she plays sax for and I KNEW I had to see them play! When I first heard The Bombshellettes play at the London Themes Festival last year with the Boy we couldn’t help but fall in love with this fantastic 1940’s all girl swing band!  Inspired by Ina Ray Hutton and her Melodears, the Ivy Benson and her All Girl Orchestra, and Anna Mae Winburn with the International Sweetheart of Rhythm you can’t help but start to dance when you hear this talented group start to play!

There has been some fantastic buzz around these girls since last sunday and even spotted a HUGE article in this months Vintage Life Magazine!!!

I think all of you will love them as much as I do so keep your eyes peeled for these very talented ladies!


What did you do over the weekend…?

What did you do over the weekend…?

So after a year of planning Myself, the Boy and Blondie hit the Southbank for the amazing Vintage Festival!

I had my rollers prepared, seamed stockings at the ready and many a outfit to pick from!

I ended up wearing my vintage cream/gray abstract print dress (that I picked up in Birmingham last year), my great grandmothers fox fur cape and my new obsession, my peep toe, brogue detailing, sling back heels!

I’m very lucky that the Boy and Blondie love dressing up as much as I do and that the Boy is a fantastic photographer who documented the whole day for us all!

The highlights had the be the Black Cotton Club and the Lets Rock room where we had many a cocktail and enjoyed all the live music! check out their website for the highlights and photos…

Talking about photos the lovely people at UCA have posted all the photos from their photo booth check out this fabulous shot of the three of us on their flickr page

On a bit of a vintage come-down so in the need of planning our next vintage outing any suggestions?
