SARAH'S BLOG: WHAT TO WEAR TO GOODWOOD REVIVAL

Darn it, Sydney already got in there with the dress for Goodwood that I would have chosen! I loved the Goodwood outfit she chose on her blog.

I am however in luck, because I have another 2.5 outfits that I would definitely be rocking at Goodwood if I was going. (Sadly I too have a family thing on preventing me from going. How inconsiderate of them!)

I'm really into my vintage style separates at the moment. So, first up is this awesome top, a 1940s Catalogue recreation, paired with some dreamy Old Hollywood style high-waisted wide leg trousers. (They have fab pockets, perfect for stashing the various bits and bobs you accrue during such an event) 

This stripey top keeps selling out- be quick with your click!

If you're good in heels, you should definitely do this look with the Lillie heel in black and ivory, rock that monochromatic style! If, like me, you prefer a lower heel, you should look at the swoon-worthy Aviator heels or the Balboa in gold. Gold makes everything awesome.

My second outfit for Goodwood is this fabulous herringbone tweed skirt, matching ladies waistcoat and pussybow blouse. Made by Vecona Vintage who also make a lot of our menswear, this German brand is known for ridiculously high quality garments. (As someone who already owns a few pieces from them I can definitely confirm they are MORE than worth their price tag.)

We have this blouse in ivory, red, long sleeve and short sleeve versions!

It's a very strong look, so the 0.5 of the Goodwood outfit I mentioned is actually the same as the above, just without the waistcoat. (Can I just take a moment to rave over how brilliant this A-Line skirt is? It's the best I've tried in such a long time!!)

It's still a great look, but possibly a better option for you if you're not used to going for the full Goodwood Revival look.

Ultimately, you want to keep the overall feel of your outfit for Goodwood Revival feeling comfortable as well as of the era. I am more into the 1940s than later decades, so I will always go for that look.

I stand by something that I tell ladies in store- you need to feel like you from that time, not you in a fancy dress costume. There will always be someone there who gives you outfit envy, so you should feel as good about yours as possible!

My fellow Revival megababes Sydney and Samantha also wrote blogs on their outfit choices if you'd like a read!
