LookS: Inspired by the 1930s silver screen....for Justine's Birthday!

Hello my darling readers! I trust your week is starting off beautifully with the festive season so near....is the Christmas tree up yet and all presents wrapped? Found that secret recipe that has been hidden away for most of the year? For me, Christmas is always a lovely season to look forward to and London is often the prettiest this time of year! You darlings can probably tell how brimming with excitement I already am....but its not only for Christmas. From friends, birthdays, balls, weddings, photoshoots, films, family and the new year, there is much to look forward to....as well as to tell you darlings about. So do let me cut to the chase and disclose the first exciting bit....one of my close friends Justine's birthday at Adam's Street private members club in London a little while ago!

Being a special birthday Justine had planned a special party with a glamorous theme of silver and black to dress to. Rummaging through my wardrobe to find a bias cut floor length maxi dress by ASOS in a silver silky sheen, I was inspired by the old Hollywood silver screen to do a 1930s look. Setting my hair in finger waves the night before and then putting it up in a bun with some pin curls to complete any loose ends...matched with two small oval metal clips and a pair of gold cone-like pearl drop handmade earrings I bought in a vintage market whilst in Berlin's Museum Island some months ago, I was set to dance the night away at Justine's party! [Catch up on the Berlin Museum Island post: here] The venue was behind a discrete black door on a little London street near Charing Cross, and once inside the bare brick walls reminds one of a rustic secret hideaway. With everyone dressed glamorously to the fabulous theme, it was really a gorgeous event done to the finest detail and I was really happy to be there to share this special birthday with her as I understood what it meant to her. Justine's parties are always legendary and a great time to catch up with a lovely circle of friends, but also a time to meet as well as welcome new friends. It was at this birthday party that I met a new photographer friend Caroline Opacic, which has sparked off an exciting new collaboration that I am just so very excited about....those of you darlings who are following Walking In May's Facebook page might know what I am banging on about! [Find Walking In May's Facebook page: here] In fact, the photographs on this post are actually taken by Caroline....so some clues as to what might be coming up in the following posts!

I shall not disclose too much as I won't want to spoil the excitement of it all...but there will be a post telling all on the Chap Magazine's 5th Anarcho-Dandyist Ball 2013 too. Now I shall be counting the days till the upcoming blog anniversary on the 13th December 2013....as well as a special wedding tomorrow, and one of my close friends Bee is coming back to London for a visit very soon. Before I burst the bubble of excitement in giving away too much....I shall wish you darlings a fabulous mid-week!

Until the next time,
May xx
