On Saturday it was a gorgeous sunny morning so we went to the car boot sale in search of treasure. I found some great things, for some reason there was much more '70s clothing than usual, and although a few marvellous maxi dresses were the wrong size for me I did take home two very flammable looking nighties. I also picked up the film 'Bobby' which is set in the late '60s and is about the assassination of Bobby Kennedy, can't wait to watch that one. Clothing-wise, I also bought a top and skirt set, a cheongsam dress with a baggy waist (onto the sewing pile it goes...) and two would-have-been-expensive shift dresses from Hobbs and Whistles. Finally, I found some illustrations of women's costumes that came from a book, very interesting drawings that all seem to have that Victorian silhouette of the wasp waist and pigeon chest, regardless of what era they're supposed to be set in. They were only 50p so I couldn't resist.
We watched Eurovision on the Saturday night, I always enjoy it but I'm not sure it was enjoyed by the professional musician in the household. High standards you see. It was an excuse to eat a Greek salad, drink some Spanish wine and nibble French cheese anyway.
On Bank Holiday Monday there was a vintage 'extravaganza' at the Millennium Centre in Cardiff so we headed down for that. There were classic cars on show outside, vintage stalls inside, and a programme of live music. I bought a pair of cat-eye sunglasses and a tomato red '60s slip. We were delighted to see Darren winning the best-dressed male competition, and he bought a nice denim jacket with his winnings.

I wore a 1940s inspired look. The brooch, bag and gloves are vintage but the rest is either repro or just high street.
What did you all get up to over the weekend? Did you watch Eurovision too?
