Chez Nicole Eymard

Untitled

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending Nicole Eymard's 'Indian Princess' inspired party, a celebration of Indian textiles, dress, beauty and bollywood. It was the first time any fellow bloggers had ever contacted me in regards to meeting in person and so I was incredibly honoured, especially as the other guests are known to have far better wardrobes and innovative personal style than myself! Still, I jumped at the opportunity to meet them all and I had a really enjoyable evening despite my shyness. Unfortunately, I spent more time filling my face with onion bhajis than taking photos so I only have a handful but Nicole and Kelly-Marie have already blogged the soiree and have more pictures available on their blogs should you wish to see more. (Links at the bottom of the page.)

Jian Wei took these pictures of my outfit before I left. The sari was lent to me by my lovely manager Ayesha and, seeing as she is a tiny human being measuring approximately five centimetres by five centimetres, I had to be laced into the corseted top and squeezed into the skin-tight underskirt. But it was so worth it as it was such a beautiful outfit, the colour a shimmering peach-pink that I just loved. The jewellery was also provided by Ayesha and the bindis were from a health and beauty shop in Greenford. This picture is slightly out of focus unfortunately but it is the only full length image of the entire sari.

Nicole and her adorable little dog Clementine. Normally I'm not a 'dog person' in any shape or form but this one was practically a cat.

Nicole's North London home was full of enchanting details and a few surprises...
