The Purple Turtle in Reading (one very awesome looking venue) is hosting a fantastic day on Sunday the 26th of October, the event is packed full of fun things to see and do! Ingeniously named the Yakety Yak Vintage Experience, this event is going to be crammed full of cool traders and with FREE entry it is definitely going to be a great way to spend a Sunday.
I’m really excited to be at the event guesting in the Lou Lou’s Pin-Up Parlour offering my hair styling services. I’ll be on hand to create victory rolls, beehives and classic sets alongside talented make-up artist Lizzy Davis who’ll be creating pin-up perfect make-up looks. Make sure to come and see us for the full makeover experience!
But don’t worry guys there’s something for you too as the awesome Frank Rimer will be there with his pop-up barbershop offering expert cuts for the gents. Lots of images of Frank’s amazing work can be found on his facebook page here.
The gorgeous Lola Diamond is the girl behind the event, not only is she a gorgeous pin-up model but she’s also the creator of fab label Violets in May. Under this name Lola makes stunning clothing with a real rockabilly edge including Sci-Fi inspired dresses worn by the likes of Bernie Dexter and colourful Hawaiian print playsuits and beach sets. She’ll be trading at the event and will be joined by a whole host of other fab traders too so don’t forget your wallet!
The event will also feature music and an outdoor cinema plus a photobooth/pin-up studio from the very talented Jez Brown Photography. Jez will be on hand taking some halloween themed pinup shots, the perfect way to show off that vintage makeover!
