So we've been away a bit recently as we've both started new jobs, have university deadlines and tis the season to be stupidly busy. So, a little while ago we went to 'The Chap Ball' and had ourselves a fabulously drunken time. We were joined by our lovely new friend Sophie who we met at the sale and social a few months ago.
Excuse the kitchen photos - bah dark evenings.
Harriett had a little outfit disaster with a pesky 30's gown. But what can't be saved by a 30's showgirl outfit?! Not much I say. Harriett found it in a charity shop maybe a year ago. It was also owned by one of Frank Zappa's backing singers in another life. Worn with vintage feathers and a lovely 30's headpiece she bought in Sweden.
Sophie wore a gorgeous velvet 50's gown from eBay and gorgeous 30's shoes she bought from our recent trip to Lewes.
I wore my new (to me) 30's 'Ginger Rogers' dress which I bought from American eBay. I think its an original theatre costume as it has a number in it and the date '1932' written inside. I love it so, it was so damaged when I bought it and I spent so long sewing sequins onto it!
To the bar!
And then done some more drinking, dancing and shameless flirting.
Cheers to Hanson Leatherby (check out his amazing photography here) and Andrew for the photos and Andrea for looking after us.
Bring on more parties I say.
Love Aimee xx
