Having it All-The Perfect Day Ends with The Perfect Evening

Its very rare to have the 'Perfect' day, but thats what I did have yesterday, when I met up with my gorgeous blogger friends Wendy Brandes and Times of Glory, then onto the 'Perfect' evening with Wendys gorgeous husband Paul, taking us lucky ladies out for dinner!!
The day started with myself and Wendy meeting outside her London hotel-we then decided to get a cab to check out the designer sale 'Mrs Sting' was having-a recommendation from Red Carpet Fashion Awards that eagle eye Wendy had spotted before meeting me!!
To say there were designer bargains is an understatement-you name a designer, their clothes were there, at totally rock bottom prices, with all proceeds going to UNICEF-what could be better!!


Myself and Wendy with our haul of designer goodies!!
I bagged a Chanel jacket for £100(!!!), a Roberto Cavalli top, a Pucci top, a Jean Paul Gaultier top, a Versace day dress and a Burberry blazer-all for a total of less than £200!!!
Well Wendy and I were shopped out, so we staggered a few steps onwards to a lovely little pub, for a liquid lunch and flowing conversation! Times of Glory rang about 3.30, to check our whereabouts and of course wanted to check out the designer sale too!!


Our 2nd visit and Wendy looks stunning in this McQueen jacket, which she didn't purchase, as she had already bagged a totally gorgeous white crochet Dolce and Gabbana summer coat, a Zac Posen exquisite evening gown, a Versace black top and a totally gorgeous buttersoft leather Christian Dior jacket!!!

Well, onwards to Harvey Nichols, where Wendy bagged another superb bargain-some L'Wren Scott black sequin trousers that are totally and utterly divine!!! Another pitstop required, so we retired to the 5th floor at Harvey Nicks for a pitcher of Pimms-oh, how decadent of us!!!
Time was marching on, so a cab took us back to Wendy's hotel, where her wonderful husband Paul was ready to take us for dinner-but not before I captured some shots of Wendy in her stunning new Ossie purchase!!!
Wendy looking divine in her newest Ossie Clark purchase!!
Wendy and Paul-Wendy looks fabulous in this Zac Posen gown-what a stunning find!!
Dinner was exquisite-I had smoked salmon for starters, veal for main course and coffee brulee and espresso ice cream for dessert-oh what luxury and decadence to end the evening!!!
A big, big thank you to Wendy and Paul for such a special evening and I've met a special friend in Wendy-our pub chat was a lovely way of getting to know each other more and also our mutual love of Ossie Clark ensured we had plenty to talk about! Times of Glory is another wonderful, sweet girl-another good friend and it was a pleasure to meet her-we all had a fantastic day-one I won't forget in a hurry!!

That espresso ice cream was good, wasn't it?

I feel like I could have bought about ten more things from Trudie.

Hi Wendy-I'm still basking in a warm glow of yesterday-That will be totally awesome about the Ossie event-I so enjoyed our chat in the pub yesterday about Al and Ossie!!

WONDERFUL! What a great post. Such fun for fashionistas to get together and look cute while shopping and dining in style. I loved every account of your wonderful day and fantabulous evening.

I miss those days, since I don't have a car and have been pretty isolated lately, but I look forward to getting back in the swing of things soon and getting out more.

Love and kisses.

Hi Cheryl Lynn-I think it was so perfect as I don't ever go out like this, so it was greatly appreciated!!
