  1. It would be so nice to be there, ....sigh!
    Here in Milano the winter turns to summer
    (this year the spring was twenty minutes long).
    Love The Knack!

  2. Damn!! I'm super envious of your fab goings on!! Have some extra fun and vintage scores for me!!

  3. This time of year is usually kind of back and forth in the smoke, lovely one day and cold as balls the next!
    Unfortunately, I'm in Tennessee at the new visa doesn't go into effect until the end of the week!...and it's actually in the 90s here.
    I can't wait til I get back to London and get back into the scene!
    The main reason I do this weekly post is for several of my old friends who always went out with me to these events...I was the 'social chair' for our group and a few have said they don't know what to do if I'm not around to tell them what's what and plan our weeks! :)
