DEVINE PLEASURE - 1st October, 2011
We were happier than Sarah Harding returning to Girls Aloud when London Fashion Week finally arrived bringing our 4 day secret vintage dressing room to Tatty Devine, Covent Garden. Things kicked off with a launch party on the Thursday where Scatch Dollface entralled everyone with our Rag&Bow nails! We grooved to sounds of DJ and designer Cleo Ferin Mercury whilst supping on cider from Friels. We had rails full of specially selected pieces so spent the night helping customers and dishing out styling advice, quite frankly we had an amazing time!
We draped our mannequin in a Rag&Bow 80s disco frock and Tatty Devine new A/W collection pieces including this dinosaur necklace. Our sequin turban was one of our favourite accessories which quickly got snapped up (no pun intended)! Check out the amazing necklaces that Tatty Devine made for us, we haven’t taken them off since and have developed a branded tan mark...hmmm!
VOGUE TO THE MUSIC - 17th September, 2011
Thursday the 8th of September was circled in our diaries ready for the much anticipated, Vogue Fashion Night Out. We went straight over to Bruton Street in Mayfair walking past Razorlights, Johnny Borrell looking all Easy Rider on a classic bike outside Juicy Couture. The front man later DJ’s at the Flagship store joined by Tali Lennox. Inside Juicy we mingled with Bip Ling whilst sipping champagne and trying to be lady like eating frozen yogurt. We spotted the delectable singer Yasmin, who told us she was wearing head to toe vintage complemented by Topshop shoes. She headed off to perform on the Fashion's Night Out live stage whilst we went next door to Matthew Williamson. The very handsome designer was in attendance unveiling his new diffusion line, MW by Matthew Williamson, chatting to us about hats!
Next up was Burberry to watch Wolfgang play and Hermes who obviously love a roaming element too as their horse box was parked outside the store, previously spotted by us at the Port Eliot festival. Inside the box you could take part in their bangle bowling to win a goodie bag. Obviously everyone wanted one so the queues were insane all night. We loved the Hermes models who were sashaying outside the store, instantly turning it on for our camera’s, tres fierce!
We saw some incredible street style including these three shy and retiring peeps, loving the disc hat, they're the future! We also loved Tabitha from the Queens of Noize set at the Coach official after party where we saw an actresss, she's been a few movies and things, you may know her she called..GWYNETH PALTROW!
VINTAGE VOLUME - 4th September, 2011
Sometimes a book comes along that sparks off your imagination; taking you into a beautiful place that you want to repeatedly delve into. This feeling of warmth and comfort beams from each page of, The Vintage Tea Party by Angel Adoree. Our friend Angel founded The Vintage Patisserie who we have proudly hosted events with on several occasions. We we’re honoured and full of anticipation to be invited to the book launch at London’s, 93 Feet East. We walked into a fairy-tale dream land of Alice in Wonderland meets Brideshead Revisited. The venue was dressed with an exquisite cacophony of decorative vintage objects. It felt like we had literally walked into the pages of the book!
We enjoyed recipes from the book including "Jasmine Tea Bubbles" served in vintage china by the glorious Vintage Patisserie ladies such the wonderful Lauren. We also nibbled on cupcakes, scones and the eerily irresistible “Salad Cemetery” (p214). Our Hazel was snapped (wearing friend and Jessie J's VMA outfit designer, Simon Preen) with the lady of the moment, Angel, who herself was looking resplendent.
The book is not only perfect for vintage foodies but for 'anyone' who is interested fashion, style and illustration. Here are some of our favourite pages but for the complete experince, in its full 305 page glory pick up your copy from Amazon for only £10. We are also giving away free copies at Bethnal Green's Affordable Vintage Fair on Sat 10th of September!
