And nobody knew, so for them it was also a surprise. And yes, I did had a great time! Lot's of laughing with friends, checking the fair and enjoying the nice weather. In the evening it did hurt when I had to go back home but now I can say I was at the War & Peace this year.
And my golden rule: never return empty-handed! Every buy is a memory haha. Not all the stalls on the fair where already open (and some prices were great in pound but crazy in euros) but I did find a great 1940s navy dress. It does need some repairs but it has a lovely design. I did needed some buttoms to complete my summer WAC uniform and together with those buttoms I bought a sweetheart brooche. Also a cute black purse with some cross stitching and a french book about 1940s fashion. It would have been great if I could have stayed there to see all the other stalls and take a good look at everything else but that's life, right?
|I just started restoring the dress a little bit. Soon it will have it's perfect 1940s look back!|
