It was my Birthday yesterday and I had a fab day out with my great chum, Bryher. We started at World’s End in Chelsea, with Vivienne Westwood. Nothing like starting a day with a pure pleasure buy! In my case a pair of amazing Melissa shoes [but that’s another story] and then we moved onto lunch and some Bob Carlos Clark, at the Little Black Gallery for pudding. Ole Bob is one of Bryher’s favourite photographers, his super sexy/fethish styling is so kinky, you want to go out, head to toe in a rubber catsuit and Purrrrr… softly. Check out my new mood board for a little appetizer of his work.
Anyway after all this and a few other pit stops we ended up at the Sanderson Hotel for high tea. The Alice in Wonderland themed cacophony of sugar and cream felt like Alice, the March Hare and the Mad Hatter had a tour of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate factory to make sure that they had tasted every possible wierd and wonderful confectionary available. My personal favourite were the sandwiches which were delicious in saffon and spinach coloured bread! All in it was a sure sugar high and the sugar headache that ensued thereafter was a reminder of my guilty pleasures.
You need to book in advance and I would make sure you give yourself an hour to get through and savour all the little fancies and treats.
