Image of an Icon

Last Wednesday I was invited to the launch party of Image of an Icon at Proud Galleries in Chelsea. I hadn't been to Proud Chelsea before so was really looking forward to the event. I took my sister along as she was with me that day and is also a big fan of art and design so I knew she would enjoy it as well.

Style Muse: Nancy Sinatra

Sixties Inspired: Ops&Ops

Ops&Ops came onto my radar last year but I didn't actually get around to purchasing anything from them until recently. I have a pair of original 1960s cream loafers which I absolutely love (and wore in the Oxfam shoot recently) but which have been worn to death and I try not to wear them now as I'm so frightened they're going to fall apart! It's safe to say that I was a bit excited when I discovered Ops&Ops. They create sleek, 1960s inspired shoes that can be worn day to night and are extremely comfortable (this isn't a sponsored post by the way - I'm just a fan!). In my search for a replacement pair of cream loafers I came across their bumper car shoes and just had to get a pair. 

The Meyer Dancers

The Meyer Dancers have been on my radar for a while now, and I thought it was about time they were on yours too if they weren't already! 

These gals are professionally-trained dancers and choreographers and have been performing GoGo for the past three years. Based in London, they've supported Geno Washington, The Sonics and The Trashmen and have performed all over the world at corporate events and private parties. They pride themselves on their authenticity and have an extensive repertorie of swinging 60s routines. I've seen these ladies perform at some 60s events in London and they really are fab.
