Pinup Picnic In The Park!

So last Saturday I attended an incredible event right here in London. The British Belles organised a picnic which was held in Hyde Park. Now I must state this was no ordinary picnic, this time there was a theme, VINTAGE! Guys and girls came dressed in true vintage fare and I have to say just being amongst so many fun and interesting people who all looked amazing was just incredible!

The girls and I met with everyone at Marble Arch and we were greeted with passers by asking us to stop and take pictures. I guess being someone who loves vintage fashion it’s easy to forget that for many people it’s still a rare and unseen thing. In truth, it’s been quite some time since I was surrounded by so many colours and people in perfectly put together outfits!

The great thing about an event like this is how relaxed and laid back it was. I was even surprised to find out that people had travelled from all over Europe to be in attendance, and even better over £1000 was raised for Macmillan Cancer Care. There was a pretty big mix of people there of all ages including several pinup style babies!

What made the afternoon so nice, apart from the glorious sunshine was of course how many bright, bubbly and confident people were out dressed in their best to have a day of great conversation and picnic treats. I met so many amazing bloggers, models, fashionistas and photographers. In truth most events have a really formal and cooperate feel to them where the ultimate goal is to promote and sell products. This is one of the few I have been to where the main requirement of the day is that everyone has fun!


As you can imagine everyone spent days toying with what to wear! I myself took a mini poll with some of the other plus size bloggers on Whatsapp messenger and it was decided that I should wear my Gretal Gingham dress from Collectif. To check out my previous review of the dress click here. Hayley (Curves & Curls) too was in gingham only her dress was the Dolores Doll version.

Overall the day was a lot of fun and we all left with a healthy glow on our skin after sitting in the sun for so long. Everyone was already talking about how much they are looking forward to another picnic next year and hopefully more events beforehand.

I really enjoyed the day and it was great to get to know some of the other bloggers better and form new friendships during the day. Sometimes you just need to sit in the sun with a good sandwich and a glass of pimms lol.

Remember whatever you wear, feel fabulous in it and wear it with a smile!
