I've always been the kind of girl, ever since I was very young, who likes to save the best for last. My little blonde cherub of a sister would scoff her chocolate Easter Bunny down immediately, while I'd politely nibble on the tip of an ear, carefully smooth back the tin foil wrapping, and then we'd keep it in the refrigerator: usually the deal was we could replace it with the six month old chocolate Thanksgiving turkey.
So while you might have noticed I haven't even said a peep about the royal wedding, the event on my marathon press excursion last Thursday that ended up in East London, really began with the sweetest, most beautiful of all: a champagne and canape 'hen party' in honour of Kate Middleton, our real life Cinderella, in the most fairy tale setting of all: the actual room where the Queen and Princess Margaret, would go to get fitted for their wedding gowns.
Sir Norman Bishop Hartnell was an influential British fashion designer who is perhaps most remembered for designing the wedding dresses of both Queen Elizabeth II, and Princess Margaret.
And five years ago, Juicy Couture fell in love with the space and acquired it for the London flagship store and showroom. And they made the most wonderful, very exclusive 'hen party' - in the same space that the royals would have come for fittings.
I felt so honoured to be there. It was beyond beautiful, and good friends were there, and the Juicy girls are so lovely - in every way - and I met Yaa, the charming 8 year old girl here, and her delightful mum.
And perhaps the classiest way to hold a press day: apart from the tees in the alcove where One's gown would be displayed, and the gorgeous Juicy dresses on the hostesses - there wasn't a rack of clothing in sight.
So - like the perfect canapes of smoked salmon and cucumber and rare roast beef - or the sublime pale green sublime pistachio macarons - I shall give you little tastes, tidbits of yumminess in the posts coming up.
Thank you to the gorgeous girls at the Communications Store for inviting me, and to the Juicy Couture staff for hosting a really special hen party in honour of our fairy tale come true, Kate Middleton. Hope she's having fun getting ready for her big day!
