Brighouse 40s Weekend – Vintage 1940s Dresses

Brighouse 40s Weekend

This weekend I attended the Brighouse 40s weekend, I wasn’t too sure what to expect but the event was fantastic. If you haven’t entered already then here is my lastest competition that began over the weekend. There were so many people dressed up for the Brighouse 40s weekend, with many stalls and events going on. Very busy for a usually quite quiet town. Most people who attended the Brighouse 40s weekend went in costume, I will next year, and the vintage fashion and hair looked brilliant. Looking around there were gorgeous up do’s with victory rolls, fabulous fascinators and vintage dresses.

The ladies had fantastic vintage hair and make up at the event, many having it done for £10 outside the local hair dressers. There was also a barbers stall for the men.

My favourite stall was the Eat Me Products of York Fudge stall. It was beautifully displayed and the samples tasted amazing so I bought some Baileys and Belgian Chocolate Fudge as well as some rhubarb fudge for my dad for fathers day. The fudge is gorgeous, perfect for gifts so if you are in York I think their usual shop can be found in the Shambles.

If you are a fan of vintage clothing and bargain buys then this was the place to be. So many beautiful, unique items to be found and so many cute clothing and accessories stalls to look around.

    This is so cool! I wish I could have gone. The 40’s and 50’s are my style eras. Their silhouettes look good on everyone. :)
