I nearly didnt enter the Miss Retro Motorama comp but got talked into it by my dear friend Karen who is part of the Yankeehaulers car Hot Rod Club. Ive never entered anything like this before, nerves usually get the better of me but i thought why not, I only have to talk about my outfit and lets face it, 1950s fashion is a huge passion for me. I chose my latest make, the pink and red swing dress as I felt it would give me a few brownie points for the fact it is convertable. i made it possible to be halter neck, double straps or strapless and teamed it up with a pretty red petticoat from my new favourite store Bombshell Clothing in Camridge along my favourite genuine red vintage gloves and red peeptoe shoes.
It was a little to hot to wear seamed stockings and i applaud the girls who did, the lovely girl who came in third shared a ride in a hotrod car with me for our entrance and she said she was feeling the heat with hers!
The other eight contestants were really lovely and all dressed beautifully so it cant have been easy for the judges to choose, when i get access to the photos Ill show you the whole lineup! For now its just me!
Here is the pink cadillac I got to pose in. It was my favourite car at the event. One of the questions they asked me was which was my favourite car!
