Ooh fun things are happening this month! As well as the ongoing Festival (sorry if you are already bored of me banging on about it), I've got a ticket to a toe-tapping, tea-sipping, cocktail supping, afternoon vintage tea party, run by the wonders from Jelly & Gin (who are the brains behind Burgher Burger too).

Jitterball promises an afternoon of vintage delights. There will be cake, scones, tarts, craft beer and cocktails (for you to dantily sip, whilst making eyes at boys with moustaches). There will be tremendous tunes from the grandmaster of the gramophone, DJ Henry Swank (I don't know who he is, but that's quite a title); swing dancers; chap-hop superstar, Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer (I've seen him, he is very, very good); vintage styling from Miss Dixiebelle's Vintage Hair and Beauty Parlour; AND a photobooth (perhaps the most important part of all).

Oh, and it's also going to be held in one of Edinburgh's most beautiful buildings, Mansfield Traquair. Say hello to my future house...

It's a beautiful old church, and it's covered in old murals. It's pretty much the perfect place for a fancy party.

I'm normally quite wimpy in heels, but if there's ever a time to dress up & brave the highest shoes (like these from New Look - special hello to the leopard platforms!) then this is it. There's a prize of magnum champagne for the most "swellegant" gal, so I am going to have to spend my next week watching vintage hair tutorials on youtube to see if I can master victory rolls.

I'm so excited! There's still a few tickets left (but be quick!) for Saturday 17th August (which can be bought here). They cost £35 which includes afternoon tea, a welcome cocktail, AND the chance to swan around town in your finest vintage outfit, pretending that's the way you ALWAYS dress, thank-you-very-much.

  1. So fancy! Can't wait to see how you dress for it.

  2. It looks amazing. I can't wait to see you all dressed up. Sounds like fun.
