Win a Lindy Bop vintage-style dress

Hen party and wedding season brings the best excuse there is to buy new look-at-me summer dresses. And if you’re looking for something flirty, feminine and Fifties-inspired, we may have found the repro brand for you…

Lindy Bop specialise in all of the above and with styles in dozens of colour and print combinations you’ll be spoilt for choice (or may just have to buy a few – you know what they say about having found a good thing…)

To celebrate the start of the spring/summer social calendar, we’ve teamed up with the online boutique to give away one of their best-selling styles – the sleeveless Audrey swing dress.

Inspired film star and style icon Audrey Hepburn, the fully-lined cotton beauty boasts a feminine fit and flare shape, bateau neckline, fitted bodice and matching removable fabric tie.

For your chance to win your very own Audrey (worth £29.99) in the style and size of your choice, simply comment on this post telling us where you’d wear it.

This competition is open to UK residents only and closes at 12 midday Sunday 10 May 2015. The winner will be picked at random and contacted on the email address they use to leave a comment on this blog post. Their details will then be passed on to Lindy Bop to fulfil the prize.

Win a stall at Horsham vintage fair

Belle’s Events is hosting its first vintage and retro fair on 26 May and is offering one lucky Vintage Brighton reader the chance to win a stall for the day, plus a side-bar advert online.

Belle’s was founded when organisers Kelly and Joss Wickon started hiring out their VW Beetle ‘Belle’ to wedding parties in early 2012 and identified a growing demand for vintage events.

“I’ve been blown away by some of the divine vintage and retro ideas I’ve come across at our fairs”, says Kelly. “The wedding events have given me taste for running a more general vintage and retro fair as there is so much scope.”

The Horsham fair will offer vintage and retro fashion, accessories, furniture, kitchenalia, homewares and toys, as well a pop-up vintage tea room, beauty parlour, photo booth and makers’ craft corner.

For your chance to win a pitch at the fair (worth £48) plus a side-bar advert on the event homepage (worth £30), simply leave a comment on this post telling us about your favourite vintage fair find. Deadline for entries is 28 March and a winner will be picked at random and contacted via the e-mail address used to comment during the week commencing 1 April.
