We All Had a Wonderful Time

Masked parties, Savage parties, Victorian parties, Greek parties, Wild West parties, Russian parties, Circus parties, parties where one had to dress as somebody else, almost naked parties in St John’s wood, parties in flats and studios and houses and ships and hotels and night clubs, in windmills and swimming-baths, tea parties at school where one ate muffins and meringues and tinned crab, parties at Oxford where one drank brown sherry and smoked Turkish cigarettes, dull dances in London and comic dances in Scotland and disgusting dances in Paris – all that succession and repetition of massed humanity … Those vile bodies …

Kisses and Knickers

Last night VA went to east London’s most glamorous knicker shop - Bordello, for kisses, poetry and cocktails…

Lana Citron, writer of the salaciously sweet book “A Compendium of Kisses” was joined by wordsmith Salena Godden and cult muse (of Westwood)turned writer, Sara Stockbridge for a poetry reading.

Here is the beautiful Cecilia, who we first met at the V&A’s preview of the Grace Kelly exhibition, we met by mutual appriciation of each others dresses..

She makes animal masks that sell in Coco Der Mer, collects taxidermy and likes to dress like a cat.
