Last weekend was the Rhythm Riot, and what a blast we had! I've been twice before, but not for a few years, and after a last minute rush we managed to sort out a chalet for 8 (which ended up as 7 due to illness), and a fun filled weekend in (sometimes) sunny Camber Sands ensued.
As usual, Hanson's pics are the best way to illustrate what we did, what we saw, and most importantly...the vintage we wore!
So here we are from left to right Bethan, me, Katie, Sadie, Fleur and Hayley, (and Hanson behind the camera). Not sure why we are looking so damn serious!

We spent way too long each evening getting ready and having fun in the chalet and ended up losing track of time and missing some really good bands!
I realised when I put this dress on that I've only worn it once before, and I have no idea why. Its really beautifully made, the skirt it really heavy and full, and it has pockets!
Here is a better view of the dress, and Hayley's beautiful frock and shiny, shiny hair!
The ever stylish Miss Turnstiles and sassy red head Christie were also there, looking much more colourful than me on Sunday! I asked Hanson to cut me out of this picture because I think I ruin the balance of Christie's hair and Simone's dress and flower, but he wouldn't
Other superbly stylish folk:
I was so delighted to see beautiful Biddy at the Riot. She is one of the most stylish gals I know, you must follow her instagram!
For some stupid reason I didn't get Hanson to take a proper pic of my amazing dress that I wore on Sunday night. It was a recent eBay acquisition and is an asian styled dress made in Honolulu! I have nicked one of Sadie's pics of me in it...its probably the only full length picture that I have...
You can see a little bit more of the detail here. It has a slit at the front and a beautiful sash. Its a real delight to wear (excuse my terrible posture in this pic, but I am perched on a child's dinosaur ride!)
To see more pictures of the wonderful weekend, please do go and visit the full album on Hanson's Facebook page here. There are lots of lovely pictures of all the vintage cars, including the pretty Plymouth we were kindly given a lift in on the car cruise, the bands and performers, and more pictures of people in all their lovely vintage.
A huge thanks to the Rhythm Riot team for organising such a fantastic event, we had a ball!
