My first stop when I went to London last Friday was Anji and Brian's house for Anji (Richards) to do my portrait, it was very exciting and the time flew by as I posed up on a wooden box as I was quite comfy with my lovely big pipe in my right hand.
Next, Anji and I had to get ourselves together and fly down to Somerset House to meet the girls for a major fashion extravaganza a fashion exhibition to celebrate the extraordinary life and wardrobe of the late British patron of fashion and art Isabella Blow.
A most amazing collection of fashion items including Alexander McQueen, Philip Treacy, Hussein Chaleyan and Julien Macdonald and others all on display plus video's of Isabella talking about collections. We had Isabella's sister Lavinia Blow with us, the show must of seemed surreal to her, but she seemed to have a good time with the rest of us.
Some of her amazing outfits
We couldn't take it all in, there was so much to see, and it has definitely made an impression on us for the next Hatting at the club, in fact, we are going to have a "Issy Blow" Hat night in the Summer to celebrate the legendary figure within the Fashion and Art world,

All the girls
Fun with pipes on the way to the club
Dinner was amazing and so was the C.A. Club (as usual) then we all went back to Gabby's for more drinks (not the best plan) as I was going to see my super new pal Molly in the morning before my train at 12!
Blondes have more fun!!! Ella and oneself above
