End of the Week.. x

It’s been a pretty mad, bad week from the lows of a long dentist appointment (oh the joys of a periodontal clean due to impacted wisdom teeth..6 injections later..) various meetings and visits to the vet with a very stressed dog..to a fabulous Book Club night (the above is my reminder for the next one..)

And a wonderful day out at the Spirit of Summer with lovely mate Galliana.  I will confess: we did initially think we’d got the wrong venue..and date..

My Wardrobe.com had a stand and I succumbed to this little number from new label Christophe Sauvat..it was the boho vibe and the pop of neon that sold it..(and the fact is was the last one left..)

Christophe Sauvat is one of those fascinating characters..He started in the 80’s designing clocks and watches..

 Then moved to Brazil where he made and exported thread bracelets, selling over 8 million.

 Before co-founding Antik Batik in Paris.

Now he’s in Portugal where he’s started his own label  based on his love for the gypsy-style woman who still feels at home whether in London, Morocco or New York.

It has my heart.

The day/week ended with a Mum’s Night Out to ‘Supper in a Pear Tree’..a pop-up restaurant with a difference…Run by two sisters, Annabel and Charlotte Partridge the evening starts with a glass of wine and a Drawing Class around a nude model with supervision from Charlotte.  We had NO idea it was going to be a rather fetching male model..there was much tittering and flexing of charcoal from behind our easels…

The evening finished with a three course supper cooked by Annabel..including foraged herbs and homemade sloe gin…

An event to remember…

    What a week! It sounds like the good ended up outweighing the bad–so glad! How come when I took a figure modeling class all we had were anemic-looking potheads, who were just trying to earn enough to buy their next joint?

    Your post is so honest and I love it. So glad the week ended on such good notes and that dress was a great purchase! Sigh…I wish we could have coffee cocktails and lunch an chit chat about all things lol. Much love from the south 🙂

    I used to love Antik Batik. Nice to hear the name mentioned again. You can wear your new dress as you drawl seductively, “Wanna come up and see my (sk)etchings?” 🙂
