Vintage inspired nights out #Norwich

Whilst I enjoy vintage it's not all that I enjoy and over the last couple of years many new friends, people I've met aren't remotely vintage-like at all. I like this mix of different personalities. I like it when the world, my world is an eclectic assortment of different people with varying likes/dislikes and styles.

So I'm very  drawn to events where there is a variety of people which is why I like the Lounge events in Norwich organised by Fabulous Miss K and DJ'd by Graham, her husband aka Three Bits of Rhythm.

The music is 'vintage' but it's really an event for anyone-  people dress up or dress down as they wish - indeed at the last event I rocked up dressed down in jeans, jumper and converse but certainly didn't feel out of place. 

These events are monthly so if you're in Norwich or perhaps you are visiting keep an eye on Fabulous Miss K's Facebook page for updates. These are just a few quick edits, I'll add a proper album to the Missy Vintage Facebook page asap but hopefully this will give you and idea of these nights. The next one is Jan 10th  (details here) and I'm hoping to get a long if the Lemsip does it's job......

This is a picture heavy post but these guys can give you a taste for these evening more than any words can! 

Massive thank you to Karen and everyone for having me and my camera for the evening!

December on Instagram

Sometimes the only way I can remember what I was or what I did is by looking back on Instagram....... So here's a reminder for me and for you of how parts the last month of 2014 looked!

Not a new purchase but a much loved one - see Rosie's Etsy shop if you'd like one of these turbans for yourself

Bargain I mentioned in a previous post I'm almost always walking these days so heels aren't always much of a feature but a glitzy flat makes that feel a bit better.

My £5 charity shop Frank Usher bargain. 

I still haven't managed to get me one of these yet but they sound so good!

I decided to rearrange the shelves. Tiny Tears has been on display in her birthday suit for over a year now. Perhaps not the most usual shelf decor but she is absolutely part of the furniture. She used to be mine which means she is quite old... 

Love this *dress from George at Asda (a post about that here) I also love the colour of the Primark tights - however they are the worst tights in the world and have to ability to stay up. Grrrr!!!

The 50p charity shop petticoat and some items from New Look became an outfit/review post

There was a lot of reading........with wine.

An outfit of the day snap where I blurred my face, but it's okay because this was really ALL about that ASOS skirt.

More shelf decor

Christmas is a bit of a funny time for me. I like it but after changes over the last few years I don't celebrate it in the same way that I used to. No tree again this year but we did exchange gifts by the light of the Mathmos lamp. The brown paper was actually from Amazon deliveries. Thrifty!

Bow ties, I love them. I have a dozens I picked up as a wholesale lot for a few pounds on Ebay ages ago. I really must wear them more.

I went out and got soaked in a down pour. Hooray for the Kings Head which offered shelter and wine. 

But then we had to leave the pub and we got REALLY soaked and cold. Fairly sure there was more wine after this once I'd exchanged that soaked through faux fur for a towel. The glamour.....

So let's see what 2015 brings then..... If you want to follow my adventures on instagram, come on over!
