I had had a cold since Saturday & when my day off came round by Wednesday I was still feeling a bit gross but determined not to spend the day vegetating (a la my Easter Bank Holiday) I had booked in at my friend & hairdresser Paul’s salon (Cove) to get a trim & make myself feel a bit better. I then saw on Facebook that Alex Mendham & his Orchestra had their album launch at The Floridita – Should I go…? I sniffed my Olbas oil soaked tissue & texted the only other person I knew would give me that last nudge into running home to set my hair, grabbing a dress & hot footing it on a train upto Soho to attend the event….Sadie
Of course she said yes! And so I set my hair, I decided to wear my 1940’s black Crepe dress that I hadn’t had an event to wear to yet & we grabbed the 6 o’clock train…
The Floridita is situated in bustling Soho with a great cocktail bar, providing guests with a place to make an entrance down the spiral stair case and soak up some 1930’s inspired decor. Alex Mendham & His Orchestra did a sterling job & picked a great place to promote both their Album & refined style. I absolutely love being immersed in such mid week glamour.

So all in all it was a great evening & I am really glad that we went up. It got me thinking that I really should go up to London more often & that I should partake in spontaneous decisions more often! (plus it gives me yet another excuse to buy more clothes to wear to said events…)
