On Saturday afternoon, I ventured out to Stepney Green to check out Tart, the vintage pampering event organised by my friend Naomi from Vintage Secret. My mum was over from Paris and since her birthday was earlier this month, I invited her along as an extra treat.
I had been aware of the existence of 40Winks since last February, when the owner David Carter got in touch with me about the party I was organising during Fashion Week. However, despite knowing about Tart, I hadn't yet managed to drag myself out of Bloomsbury to go there.
I didn't really have time to try all the hair, make-up and massage services on offer, but I certainly took the time to sample the delicious cakes from the Vintage Patisserie and browse the gorgeous vintage pieces Sophie from Merchant Archive had brought with her as well as Naomi's treasures, of course!
There was a palmist on hand too (no pun intended), so I had to have my fortune read, if only for the experience. Turned out Amber is a very talented lady and a skilled psychologist. She was really accurate in her description of me/my life. I am a skeptic when it comes to divination and fortune telling, but I like to think that deep down there is some sort of magic in this world so let's say 50% of my brain wants to believe what she said. Even if it isn't true, it was a brilliant pick me up.
Without further ado, let me give you a little video taster of the event...
