Vintage Hen Do

Last weekend I attended a Vintage themed hen party as the bride-to-be adores pinup, burlesque and vintage tea parties, so this creative retro-inspired hen do was a wonderful revival of rockin' tunes, tea (and cocktails), cakes and 50's swing dresses from Rockabilly Pinup

While the Lipstick and Curls talented mobile styling team were armed with curling tongs, hairspray and makeup to bring pinup glamour back, creating Victory rolls, red lips and bold seductive eyes for everyone at the party in the comfort of our home in South West London.(Great, as it was pouring with rain)

I felt this was a great way to introduce the guests to Rockabilly styling as some of the girls were new to the look and really loved the sleek hairdo's and bright fun makeup and sexy dresses.

After all the ladies were beautifully dolled up and few fun snaps, we sat down to create our own vintage themed
cupcakes with the bride-to-be under the watchful eye of Nel Rennison owner of

Followed by Afternoon Vintage Tea  including open finger sandwiches, warm scones with homemade jam, lemon curd and Cornish clotted cream, a selection of English traditional cakes and special teas served in beautiful china which was hired from Prim and Proper Vintage.

We then decided to hit the town for some more cocktails and a bit of dancing and much to everyone's delight not a flashing willy in sight…(ok maybe some crazy glasses but that's it!).

So if you are looking for something new to try or just want to introduce your friends to your style this is a great way to have some fun and look amazing!

Dresses worn were Melanie Polkadot Bolero Dress and the Alika Hawaii Hibiscus Swing Dress
