The Goodwood Revival 2014

The Goodwood Revival is a paradise for petrol heads with a passion for vintage motorbikes, cars and aircraft…

Ok, admittedly, this is not an a-typical opening statement for a fashion blog. But the Revival is also a haven for style lovers too. Particularly those who enthuse about vintage looks.

Now, it appears that I can keep on ‘keeping on’ once more.

It was delicious and made remarkable through its presentation, which involved it being accompanied by a lantern, shaped like a panda’s head, filled with an orange fragrance!
