It's The End Of The Road



We're off to The End Of the Road Festival! I'm scheduling this post so hopefully we'll be cracking open our first cider by the time you read this, looking forward to a weekend which includes performances by Patti Smith and Alabama Shakes.


Aside from the 1970s nightie I'm wearing I've packed three maxi dresses and two mini dresses, a stack of jewellery and head dresses, tights, five pairs of over-the-knee socks, waterproofs, false eyelashes, neon lipstick, waterproof eye liner, a floppy felt hat, wellies, a set of thermal underwear, 2 x long sleeved tops, leggings, a parasol, an umbrella, fingerless gloves, a bikini... 


a fake fur coat, sunglasses, bindis, flip-flops, a sun hat and a fake fur hood. That should just about cover a typical weekend of British weather.

1970s nightie (from Helga), 1960s tote bag (from Clare), Purple skull and stud bracelets (made by Krista) , Hush Puppy boots (£1.50, car boot sale), denim waistcoat (£2.49, Acorns Hospice)

I promise to catch up with you all when we get back!
Have a fab weekend!

  18. I think you are covered for all the british weather can throw at you - hope its more bikini than wellie weather but seeing the forecast perhaps an inflatable boat might be a good idea?

  30. You look fab in your "nightie"! And Gilbert is looking pretty good himself! Have a fab time, hoist a pint for me, and throw Patti kisses from me! (Gosh I can't believe its been so long since I've seen her last... it was the last night of CBGB and she sang on and on like if she could ward away it closing down by not stopping!) XXX Suzanne

  32. You really are prepared for anything! Have a great time. I saw Patti Smith play with Grateful Dead at my university in 1979. Unfortunately, I don't remember the concert at all :(

    ReplyDelete
  33. Have fun! That nightie looks absolutely fab, as does all of your packing. I find packing for a weekend is the hardest because you never know what the weather will do!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Patti Smith? I have major envy. It looks like you're prepared for everything except possibly snow. Have fun.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Patti Smith is my favourite singer/poet/general badass. I hope you have/are having a fabulous time. I love your nightie as dress.

  39. Should be so pretentious that I say that Patti Smith's Just Kids, changed my life (just a little bit, but yet)

    ReplyDelete

  42. Hey Vix, I nominated you for a Liebster award

  43. Have lots of fun, and take lots of pics for us! Hope you need your bikini more than your wellies but it'd be foolish to go anywhere in Britain without your wellies wouldn't it. xx

    ReplyDelete
  44. Is that all you packed?! I'm sure you must have forgotten something, although darned if I know what it might be. Hope you are having a great time.

  46. That purple dress is stunning on you x

  47. Oh sorry and have a good time x

  48. Patti Smith? Ooh, she is a goddess. She should invite you up on stage to dance. The spread of your clothes waiting for the adventure ahead is so inviting. If I were a cat I'd sit in the middle, especially of the fake furs, and have a big stretch, then bathe. Heavenly. Thermal underwear and a bikini, I'm glad you're prepared!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh Vix the colour of the nightie is yummy!!!! Yay to a fabulous weekend of cider and music. Gilbert looks ready for the trip to the end of the road. Hmmmm packing is an art form for sure. I am already missing my wardrobe.
    Have a great fun!!!!
    Love v

  52. I am so envious. Patti Smith AND Alabama Shakes (who was in Denver this summer). I'm sure that your ensembles will equal the performances.
