Eventful times ahead!
Parties, stalls, workshops- we are so busy in the coming months we barely have time to blog about it- but here you go;all the latest and greatest from Vintage Secret.
Firstly, you may have seen that our very own Naomi Thompson is giving a vintage styling workshop in association with QueensofVintage– its going to be at the gorgeous Betty Blythe fine food pantry,( which our very first blog post was about!)
with only 20 exclusive places available at £35 a head, including tea. Naomi will be sharing her top tips on collecting vintage pieces, what to wear for specific eras and particular body shapes, how to mix and match with modern pieces as well as the best places to buy vintage.
You may have seen our new monthly pampering event, Tart, mentioned in the magazine of The Times on Saturday- a huge piece on David Carter’s glamorous home/hotel where the event will be held. Here are the pictures from the piece, and you can read the article here.
You can see more lovely press about the forthcoming events here, including a wonderful blog post from The Times journalist and author, India Knight. India’s god-daughter Nina Dolcetti will be showing her amazing shoes at Tart,(see pic below) as well as some other great new designers who’ve come on board since I did my last post about the event, including underwear label Bunnies Forever– have a look at their website, its so cute!
Also coming up at David’s is a new series of Bedtime Story events, now to be curated by renowned storyteller and good friend of mine, Rachel Rose Reid. Its a testament to how amazingly talented she is that Rachel has managed to make a career out of storytelling, earning fame everywhere from the Edinburgh festival to New York City. Have a look at the line-up on our events page– think Sherlock Holmes, Oscar Wilde and special Valentines Day story nights next year. David’s little hotel is often home to A- list actors when they spend time in London, and rumour has it that he’s managed to convince one such star to come and do some storytelling- stay tuned for further details. Some of our musical friends will also be gracing the nights with their talents- do email David to reserve your place now as these events have always sold out very quickly.
