I’m sitting at home in my pyjamas, having had an absolutely wonderful weekend with some of my favourite people. Rob and I travelled up to Northampton on Friday for our first weekend away together for absolutely ages. We had travelled up to attend a Back to the Future themed ball, organised by my lovely friends from Most Marvellous Meet-ups. Yesterday was my birthday and it was really great that I had a special event to go to on the day.
We got up early on Saturday morning to shoot some pictures for the Lindy Bop dress review that I posted yesterday. We found so many pretty locations to take pictures, Northampton has some gorgeous buildings and it was really fun having a little wander, looking for good spots to take pictures. I feel really lucky that Rob always helps me out with photo shoots and we always have a laugh taking them. One day I might show you some of the funny ones that never make it onto the blog!
After taking our photos we relaxed in the hotel for the rest of the day. It gave us a chance for a much needed rest and I did some writing and photo editing. It was then time to get ready for the ball. I wore a dress I bought a while ago from ChiChi Clothing. I usually like to wear original vintage to events, but I loved this dress so much and it definitely deserved an outing! I paired it with a pair of shoes from Hotter and an original vintage necklace and Enid Collins bag.
I decided not to take my camera to the ball, as its nice to just enjoy myself sometimes and not think about taking blog pictures. I got a few snaps on my phone though. The organisers had re-created the Enchantment Under the Sea dance from the Back to the Future film and the whole place looked amazing. We were treated to lots of live music and a fantastic sit down meal at the Deco, a venue in Northampton.
It was wonderful seeing so many of my friends and everyone looked absolutely amazing. I was so touched that people had made an effort to celebrate my birthday too. I got a birthday balloon a cup cake with a candle and a lovely little gift. I also won a prize in the raffle and I’ll be choosing a girdle from Girl on the Run as my prize. Which should I choose?!
