All Things Vintage and Lovely + Vintage Car Rally | LittleEllieMae

I am a huge vintage lover- the clothes, music, history and culture. I love it all. 

The vintage outreach in Devon and Cornwall is expanding rapidly, with shows and fayres happening more and more frequently. My favourite vintage shows are the All Things Vintage and Lovely  events that are held around Plymouth and other areas in Devon and Cornwall. 

Yesterday, my family and I attended the event at Mount Edgcumbe where there was a car rally along side the vintage fayre. 

Beautiful vehicles from a huge variety of eras gathered at the show for people to look at.  

Mount Edgcumbe house was built in the 1500s and restored after WW2. It is one of the many stunning venues open to the public in Cornwall.

The event was so busy! It took us hours to get there from Plymouth due to the massive traffic build ups.

The cutest and yummiest cupcakes ever!

I love little touches like this at fayres- vintage dresses hanging from the trees!

Some of my favourite things to find at vintage fayres- old magazines and records!

I've come across this adorable van at quite a few of these events now and I think its a lovely idea to serve afternoon tea in!

The gardens are also beautiful at Mount Edgecumbe, especially in the summer when they are full of colour!

What I Wore: 
Dress- H! By Henry Holland
Shoes- New Look
Sunglasses- Primark
Shoulder Satchel Bag- Primark
Ankle Bracelet- Souvenir from Spain

I wore this lovely dress by Henry Holland as I wanted to dress in a way that gave a nod to the vintage theme, however still sticking to my personal style. I felt that this dress has a 60s monochrome vibe to it with the shift shape and faux leather detail on the collar and pockets. Pairing it with white shoes and a black and white bag, you can't go wrong with a good monochrome look!

I had a great day and I can't wait to visit the next vintage fayre in Plymouth in September!
