Our Beach Hop Birthday, and Adventures at Very Vintage Day Out 2016! Posted on 27 Apr 09:26 , 0 comments

We are still buzzing from the past few weeks! So many exciting events have happened this Summer, including the Petrolhead Vintage Market for The Beach Hop in Whangamata, and our favourite event of the year, the Very Vintage Day Out, held at Alexandra Park in Auckland!

Beach Hop Rocks! And we were lucky enough to be spending our first birthday weekend at the Beach Hop Market at Whangamata Memorial Hall. We had an awesome time checking out the amazing vintage cars on show, and met lots of new friends! It's been such a great first year at Rita Sue, and no celebration is complete without cake. Our very talented friend Fiona at Funky Cookies and Cakes whipped us up these delectable car cakes to share!

Thanks Petrolhead Magazine and Andi & Craig for their awesome market organisation, we'd love to be back next year! And a big thank you to Tony McKay for the awesome photographs! Fiona for our amazing birthday cakes by "Funky Cookies and Cakes." They were just as delicious as they looked!

A week after we had the pleasure of being a part of the Very Vintage Day Out in Auckland... bigger and better than ever! This event has grown so much over the past few years, with many more vendors, models, photographers, show participants, and fabulous entertainment. It was wonderful to see so many beautifully dressed, vintage enthusiasts under one roof!

We were very excited to sneak a peek at the Miss Pin Up NZ competition this year - all of the contestants did fabulously! There were outstanding performances, stunning outfits, and we were very proud of our Rita Sue gals Miss Lola Fondant, and Miss Opal for taking part in this years event!

In the end, we were super happy to see Fran Robertson took out the top spot as the new Miss Pin Up NZ! Fran lives the pin-up life with a creative and colourful flair that matches her bubbly personality. She will be an amazing ambassador for the scene this year... and in fact already is!
