The Blitz party....

Sunday, 15 April 2012

Finally last night me and my best gal pal donned our best 40’s hair do’s & outfits and hit London’s Blitz Party! Its held once a month and tickets cost £20.00, but be quick its always a sell out!

We danced the nigh away to a fabulous live band, while drinking Screaming Hudson’s and basically the whole cocktail list…. we even got given 2 cups as a souvenir from the nice bar man!

We had so much fun…. but this much fun takes time to prepare.! We had heard that the Blitz party goer makes a lot of effort and we thought we would too.

The powder room

Our day started with a Speedy hair do at the fabulous ‘Powder Room’ on Columbia Road where we decided to go for the classic Victory rolls. I would love to be able to do this myself but the Powder Puff girls sure know what they are doing… so we thought we would leave it in their cable hands. It costs £20.00 to have your hair styled….

and here is what I wore…..My dress I had custom made from an original 40s dress pattern, while all my accessories were original 1940’s passed down from my great grandma!
