We're Not Worthy - Oh Yes, We Are!


Hand on heart, if you'd asked me two weeks ago I was seriously doubtful I'd make this year's Glastonbury Festival but, after taking things easy for a fortnight, the hip pain has subsided into a nagging - but manageable - ache. I'm off to get x-rayed this afternoon but as the doctor won't be able to get hold of me until next week I'm going for it while I still can. We're off to Worthy Farm in less than 12 hours and excited is not the word!

Wearing: 1970s maxi dress (20p, jumble sale, ages ago), denim waistcoat (a friend found in a chazza), excited face (courtesy of Glastonbury)
Our month spent travelling in India and five nights at Glastonbury are our holidays. I know that to most people a week under canvas in a mud-sodden field with limited access to water, a shared communal toilet and a diet of food cooked over a single gas jet isn't an ideal way to spend a holiday but to us it's perfect. A chance to live simply, to do whatever we like; to strike up random conversation with strangers; to discover new music & bask in our favourites; to experience the weird and the wonderful; to drink wine for breakfast & eat chips at bedtime; to sleep whenever the fancy takes us; to put the world to rights over a late night campfire; to dance in the rain; to wander the site getting hopelessly lost....I'm already getting butterflies at the thought of it all.  HERE's this year's line-up.



Past Glastos

In a desperate bid to put off the tedium of packing, I spent yesterday browsing the 'net for all things Glasto. As usual there were photos from previous years' festivals featuring page upon page of celebs & wannabes in the ubiquitous uniform of Hunter wellies, army jackets and cut-off Levis.....and then I saw this vision in psychedelia.

Paloma Faith labelled "Worst Dressed" by The Telegraph. Get stuffed, you boring old Tory broadsheet, I think she looks amazing. Funnily enough their photographer snapped me last year as part of their festival fashion spread - I wouldn't be surprised if that was for their fail list, too. 


Inspired by Paloma I've made some myself some pompom-tastic jewellery for the week ahead. 


There's no new clothes to show you, you've seen them all before, they've been worn countless times and that's fine by me. They work, make me happy and, being vintage, there's no chance on earth anyone is going to be wearing the same, unlike the girls who follow those lame festival fashion guides in magazines and all end up looking depressingly similar.


In amongst the frivolous chat & rumours on the Glasto Facebook page there's often some useful advice. Yesterday morning someone suggested testing out your waterproofs in advance so, as it was pissing it down, Jon & I donned our rain capes & wellies and walked around the garden for 15 minutes only to discover both ponchos had come apart at the seams - charity shop fail! Normally I'd patch them up with duct tape but, with rainfall of near biblical proportions over the last fortnight I'm not risking it, I went on-line and ordered replacements - paying more for the next day delivery than the items themselves. Never mind, the capes were half price, mine's purple and have over fifty positive reviews.
I've sprayed him with the hosepipe and it works. Weather gods, throw whatever you want at us, we're ready for you.
Just in case you're concerned we're shirking our responsibilities and missing the referendum, living the hedonistic hippy dream in a field, worry not. We're registered for postal voting and sent our ballot papers off a fortnight ago. The other day a couple of random strangers stopped and told us that they could tell which way we were voting by the way we were dressed. So, if you're confused, if you wear vintage you're "in".


See you on the other side - knackered, dirty and hungover but hopefully on two feet and still in Europe!

  2. If you get the chance to see Professor Elemental, he's brilliant! The lineup looks staggering, I'd probably just wnader round in a daze hoping to come across something I liked.

    I hate those 'what to wear to festivals' guides too. People should wear what they like, and what they can live with getting covered in mud/lost/knackered. Posh showers and dressing-table tents have no place at a festival. You will look splendid - even in the poncho!

    (And it's actually been rain-free down here today, though with the rain we've had lately, the field will probably be extremely soggy.)

    1. That's funny. I just Googled Professor Elemental and realised we'd loved his set at the Acoustic Festival but never found out who he was. He's hilarious. We'll definitely try and catch him again.
      I've been watching the weather reports like a hawk. Pilton looks sodden but if the rain holds off for a couple of days and it stays as warm as it is now we might be okay. xxx

  3. I understand your butterflies and their enthusiastic flight!
    The perfect holiday is to "switch off"! I this Sunday (and I must say that I thought you!) I had a long vacation a sunset, a few minutes from my house .. but it is the simplicity and live here and now that make the difference!
    I love these pictures and especially Jon black raincoat, very stylish! guys I adore you ... and I hope that your hip is OK!

  4. I'm jealous. That's the thing I miss most about California other than the gorgeous weather - THE FESTIVALS! Burning Man, Russian River Jazz Fest, Sausalito Art Fest, Health & Harmony Fest, the endless wine fests. Yes, Bibi was the FESTIVAL QUEEN & organized many a magic bus ride to festivals all over the Pacific Northwest in her day.
    Oh well, ONWARD!

    I am so loving your outfits, the minis & maxis with the wellies are FABULOUS!
    I love Ms Faith's eyeballed, tasselled, hooded & bepompommed poncho! I'd frame it for perpetuity! It's grooooovy!

    You & Jon have lotsa fun for Bibi now, ya hear?

  21. We were talking festivals today at work as one of my colleagues is going to her first ever one next month. They were all a bit horrified when I told them about my first festival (Donington at the tender age of 15) and how the toilets were just a plank of wood with a hole in it over a stinking pit! At least that has progressed a little I gather you can pee whilst Brian Blessed talks to you at Glastonbury this year!?! Enjoy every minute and see you on the other side. x x

  54. Oh my stars, does she ever! Ughhhh, the mainstream press are so woefully lacking in any sort of vision when it comes to fashion. It's awesome that folks like Paloma and you bring boundlessly creative style, cheerful colours, and unparalleled accessorizing skills to events like this. They'd be a whole lot worse for wear, IMO, without such.

  55. Love your festival outfits and I guess it wasn't money wasted ordering those rain capes! I could have done with one of those in Wales. xxx

    1. Those rain capes were brilliant - even though we kept bumping into people wearing the same ones! x

  57. I love that picture of Jon in his cape. Bet you had a good laugh spraying him with the hose pipe! You look a beautiful riot of colour in all your outfit choices. I thought of you on Wednesday morning, oh my goodness, looked a bit of a nightmare. Mind you, the best Glastonbury I ever went to was in the mud, but I didn't have a dodgy hip. Oh, that referendum. I got up at 5am to check and couldn't believe my eyes. I've read practically every article published. I'm really hoping for some good news soon. Until they trigger article 50, I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Xxxx

    1. Those queues weren't that bad, really. We'd been in worse when we used to go to the V festival and at least Glastonbury is fabulous when you get there (unlike V!)
      We were horrified when word spread along the campsite about the referendum result - hardly anyone I know voted out and those that did seemed even more disappointed than us innies were! xxx
