I had such a great day helping out at the fashion show & vintage sale called 'Ritas Vintage Wardrobe' held at Bournemouth University last week. 
The event was named after Rita Hayworth - a glamorous 1940's actress and style icon, listed as one of the 'greatest stars of all time' 

I arrived and Rita's Vintage Wardrobe organisers had already set up and ready to go accompanied by vintage 60's music to help the mood. I was surrounded by a sea of nostalgic clothes, stylish handbags and silk scarves. Every vintage lovers dream. There was also a stylish vintage photo booth and refreshments (Image 1&2)

Cake, cake, cake! We all love cake. There were cute little cupcakes freshly baked that filled the room with a luscious smell (Image 3)

All funds for the event went to the Salvation Army charity based in Winton, Bournemouth and it was lovely to see the ladies from the charity also at the event. I was able to also meet some fellow fashion bloggers and photographers which was very inspiring. It's always nice to see others just as passionate as you. (Image 4)

Hot find of the day! This vintage, quilted, navy blue Versace-esque handbag for £8! I was smiling ear to ear when I found this baby. My advice when going to a vintage store is to take your time, there is always a diamond hiding away (Image 5)
