I attended a wedding in January where I played piano. I haven’t played at weddings for a long time, I remember 10 years ago, I attended 3 weddings in 6 months and played piano at each one of them. I dusted off some old music and rummaged through my books and finally found some decent wedding-worthy songs – namely Wagner’s Bridal March, Pachabel’s Canon and Bach’s Jesu, joy of man’s desiring. Man, the rust had contaminated my unpracticed fingers as well. But thankfully, I managed to wing it.
I usually always frock up to weddings, I would pull out a vintage dress I haven’t had the chance to wear yet and step into some stilettos, grab a clutch and my camera and off I go. But this time, I decided to honour my desire for high-waisted silk pants and threw on this ensemble:
You know how much I love antique doors. So I had to pose in front of this blue one. Everything I’m wearing is vintage aside from the Witchery heels. I’ve had this beaded bag and my sea shell necklace for almost a decade. I rarely use the bag because it is so well made and I would hate for any bead to leave it. But today seemed like a good day to air it out. I am in love with this double-strap leather belt I found from a thrift shop. It adds structure to any outfit.
Here I am downing my very fast lunch- munching on a Chiko roll before taking my place at the piano.
After the wedding. I met up with some friends and had the most unusual pizza from World. It was served on a speech bubble-like cutting board and the pieces were cut vertically… There was only one slice with lamb, followed by pizza bread covered in carrots, potatoes and peas. It was also smothered in mint sauce. Not the best pizza I’ve ever had…
At least the street entertainment was better prepared. This lovely gentleman blew his pipes for hours. I heard him play ‘Amazing Grace’ before and after dinner. But where was his kilt?
I’ve got to tell you about the most unusual breakfast ever! I had 10 macaroons from La Tropezienne cafe for brekkie. It was a little bit of a sugar overload but my system loved it. Macaroons are the most decadent dessert. They have an amazing texture and I had 8 different flavours! I think my favourite was the strawberry, to my surprise. And even though the best macaroons are the ones I had in Paris, I would definitely recommend these La Tropezienne macaroons to anyone who likes them.
And another unusual event of the week: Theodore has discovered my fashion magazines… and he seems to like Angelina.
Is he winking?
