The food was fabulous; each course was accompanied by a different sparking wine - and yes, sparkling works with all types of food.
We were surrounded by rows of grapes, soon to be harvested and transformed into wine.
Talk about locovore!
I'd love the opportunity to take a trip on such a ship, a voyage from the past, an experience to treasure.
It's common to see hats being worn inappropriately, so I really wanted to include a good example of a hat in the fashion show I narrated last month and this porkpie worn by a young, unmarried lady involved in a casual activity was just right.
It's a straw base, trimmed with carefully folded ombre ribbon, feathers and a flower, just tacked in place. This type of hat shows up frequently in the lady's magazines, it's a very trendy accessory.
The base is a circa 1950's hat. I rummaged through my ribbon, feather and flower boxes and grabbed some coordinating pieces and trimmed this out in the car on the way to the event!
