Lou Lou's Vintage Fair is the one of the best in the business. It recently came to Edinburgh's Assembly Rooms and I was super excited to scour the racks for new treasures!
I loved the variety of vendors at the fair! Dear Rose With Love had a wonderful selection of vintage jewellery, and Edinburgh's favourite Armstrong's Vintage had a great collection of stylish clothes, hats, and shoes. I saw so many beautiful patterns, colours, and textures! It was like vintage heaven!
One thing I should have considered before paying the entry fee, was the eminent lack of plus size clothing. Did fat people not exist back when these clothes were made? Is there just no demand from modern chubby/curvy girls for plus size vintage clothes? I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that the answer to both of those questions is no. Surely somewhere, someone is selling plus size vintage clothing, and I'm sure there are other girls (like me) who would love to wear it! I wonder if any of the Lou Lou's events featured stalls with plus size clothing, and I wonder what it would take to help facilitate that in the future.
I admit, I was pretty disappointed that there were no clothes that would fit my size 22/24 bod, but I tried my best not to let it get me down. I found these lovely little triangle earrings at Dear Rose With Love's booth and I just had to have them. I may not have scored any clothing, but at least I found an adorable pair of earrings!
Have you ever spotted any plus size clothing at a vintage fair? Let me know in the comments below!
