Elizabeth Street Summer Party

As Frankie sings...
"what frills, what frocks!,
What broads!
What furs, What rocks!

They're beautiful!
Why I've never seen such gaiety!"

If I had to choose a soundtrack for the Elizabeth Street Summer Party, this Frankie song would be perfect; we were in the heart of Belgravia after all!
Truth be told, at times I felt we were on the banks of river Thames in Henley, attending the Regatta with all the colourful dresses and (even) hats floating around!  
Great summer evening in the city!
The gentlemen looked rather dapper too, in their linen blazers and bright tans!

I had to stop and stare at this beauty on Peggy Porschen window!
Too bad we are not looking at wedding cakes any was so much fun, probably one of the nicest memories I have from planning the wedding!

But now, let's get the party started!
It was great to see so many kiddies coming along, a full on family affair! By 8ish the place was packed and for some reason everybody looked rather familiar. We run into so many friends, it seems the whole of London was there!

So many doggies paraded in their "mommies" arms too! I saw the cutest Cavalier Spaniel irritated with the coolest, calm and collected Chihuahua that looked positively regal and not bothered at all!  Funny.
Now you see me...
Now you don't!
Lovely Pork Baps with Apple chutney, from the Thomas Cubitt stand. 

Yours truly. Can I just tell you what I found out yesterday in-between work and the street party? 
I thought it would be a good idea to finally tidy up my hair, so I called up Headmasters and got a "standby" appointment on the spot. 
Wash-cut-blowdry for just £28, plus I got to practise my rusty Italian with the fiery Napolitana who styled my hair! There, I thought you'd like to know too.

Too cool for school!
The lovely team of Eccleston Square Hotel were cooking up some seriously tantalising burgers. Friendly, chatty and young, the owners invited us around their boutique property for Wimbledon Champagne Afternoon Tea, shall we go? 

Entrance to the party was free, but a suggested donation of £10 was going to the Fight for Sight charity.
They fund research to prevent sight loss and treat eye disease. Not something you necessarily think about in your 20s and 30s, but we are not alone in this world and we'll definitely grow old, so it's good to open our eyes to all sorts of issues.
Plus this charity funds a lot of doctoral research and as a fellow researcher I appreciate how beneficial this is to keep new projects going! 

Now it's a party! The live band rocked on until eleven-ish and so did we.  

What a swellegant, elegant party this was!  x
