What I wore to the Bourne Classic Car Show

You all know my love of all things vintage clothing… well my brother has a bit of a thing for classic motors. It’s obviously in our blood.

A few weekends we got to indulge both at the Bourne Classic Car Show.

I flung on this jumpsuit and vintage kimono that I bought in New York to shamelessly pose up next to his MG Midget.

Isn’t it a beaut?

I’m wearing the infamous kimono dubbed the ‘snackimono’ due to its huge sleeves – perfect for storing snacks – that I wore on the flight back from New York.

At the airport one woman turned to her husband and asked really loudly ‘why is that woman wearing a dressing gown?’



Anyway for those of you who know the difference between a dressing gown and a kimono, here it is being worn a little closer to home with the family.

This picture cracks me up each time I look at it.

Mum’s posing like a pro, Dad’s gurning for no apparent reason, I’m flashing a majorly gummy smile while my brother’s struggling to work out where the camera is.

Aside from the MG Midget this Cadillac stole my heart. Hubba hubba.

I could totally see myself cruising down the road in this sexy machine.

And we’re both rocking pink. Clearly this meeting was meant to be….


Finally… 10/10 to this pub’s signmaker. Frankly it would be rude to say no.
