Rock&Roll Days

When you spend your days dreaming of 50s and you're lucky enough to have a huge international 40s/50s annual festival just 20 miles away from where you live, well, you're a lucky girl!


I waited for the Summer Jamboree for so long and last week I finally went, founding it is just fun and great as I was expecting.

In a few words, it was a wonderful big carnivale loaded with great concerts and shows (last year the line up included Dita Von Teese and Jerry Lee Lewis and this year there were The Stray Cats!), dance classes, Hawaian parties on the beach, American cars and motos, a Tex Mex Diner and an interesting vintage market (I have to say not all the stalls were great, but some were really nice)...


...and the barber and the hairdresser vintage shops were so fun too!

The festival is definitely becoming really popular and attractive and with more than 120000 people this past edition was quite "claustrophobic" sometimes! Because of the crowd (I went on evenings and it was crazy...!) I sadly didn't took any picture but luckily there are tons of great photos from this edition everywhere on the Internet and more will surely come in the next days/weeks :-)

I thought of what to wear for months, literally! Since May I played dress up at least two times per week, trying on every vintage dress and accessory that lay in my closets...! It was an hard choice, but finally I decided for the turquoise green/white polka dots dress below and cream accessories. True red colored lipstick, a (not so good - I'll promise something more for the next year!!) first attempt of hairdos and I was ready to go...




I'll look forward to more pictures from the Jamboree 2008 and I promise I'll post my favorites as soon as they're online :-)

That looks like sooooo much fun...you're so lucky that that giant convention is so nearby...wish I could go! Its wonderful to see how all of the photos recreate the fifties. It was only when I saw a tattoo on one of the girls shoulders, I realized it was 2008!
