Vintage Love: Jobrey turquoise maxi skirt

Lou Lou's Vintage Fair rocked up at the Passenger Shed in Bristol over the weekend. Their fairs are always a red-letter day in my house. They are well-organised, chock-full of amazing stalls and there's plenty of tea and cake...what's not to love? Plus you get to people-watch and gaze in envy at other people's beautiful vintage outfits.

I went along with two friends. One was due to go to a wedding in the Summer and vintage fairs are the perfect place to pick up a unique piece of clothing. My friend eventually settled on a stunning silk 1950s gown. It fitted her like a glove. You know when you've picked up a vintage gem when everyone around you is paying compliments whilst giving you the 'darn it, wish I'd seen that first' look.

My other friend made a bee-line for the Frilly Chantilly stall. They make gorgeous reproduction dresses and their stand is always very popular at Lou Lou's.

I picked up this beautiful maxi skirt almost as soon as I walked through the door. It just leapt out at me. I love the colours, a mixture of turquoise, bottle green, cobalt blue and deeper shades of purple. Incredibly hard to capture just how amazing the colours are on this skirt. It was clearly made for someone who was about 8ft tall, so I'm going to shorten it for me. There's so much fabric that I will probably make a tunic top out of the rest. I wont waste any of it...

I really love the label "Jobrey: Fashioned for Loveliness". Well, that's certainly true. I can't find much out about Jobrey, so I will do a bit more digging on the internet.

If you ever get a chance to go to fair organised by Lour Lou's, then please go along. They hold them all over the country and you can see why they keep winning awards. Take a peek at their diary to see if there's one rolling into a town near you...
