London HOT-SPOTS: Miss Ama's Birthday at the Dorsia (London)!

The beautiful Miss Ama and the Dorsia!
Some of you who are familiar with the club scene in London may have heard about the Dorsia in South Kensington. So to celebrate our dear friend Miss Ama's birthday we decided to head to the Dorsia for a night of dancing in style!

The Dorsia is an interesting combination of old black tie style, new cut glass charm and understated ship-like professionalism. It is a venue that has been closely managed with great attention to detail....from the lavish chandeliers hanging on the ceiling and the mirrored panels on the ground floor lounge walls, to the velvet and leather clad sofas matching the downstairs basement walls.....and you are unlikely to see any ruckus at the front door or hallway. Staff are highly attentive and swiftly professional....even though they are stationed at different parts of the rooms, their presence is utterly unobtrusive and even slight spills or an empty glass will disappear without a trace before you notice it. No doubt as to why it has attracted a beautiful and interesting crowd that dresses to we happened to be there on a night when a black tie party was going on. The young upstairs DJ spins merry dance classics to keep us girls dancing and singing, whilst the basement DJ kept a darker club anthem theme to keep us shimmying on the dance floor into the early hours. It was a fun night of dance, good cheer and best wishes for our lovely Miss Ama! The bar was kept busy and the party goers were kept merry, so the Dorsia (London) gets 4 ♥♥♥♥ out of 5 lovely hearts from me.

Happy Birthday Miss Ama! x
Heels....fabulous heels!

Shoes.....glorious shoes!
What was I wearing.......a boned Asos black and maroon velvet dress, with a pair of teal velvet high platform peep-toes with gold satin heels that I still need a lot of practice to walk in....but were too pretty and fabulous for me to resist! And at least I have attempted the tights and peep-toe challenge!
Dress: Asos
Clutch: Asos
Shoes: Poetic License (London)
All's well ends I usually say. What do you think? Would you try the tights and peep-toe look?

Until the next time,
May xx

How-To: Do 1930s to 1950s....a Vintage inspired twist to glitz-up your evening look!

With only three days to go before my vintage themed birthday's all getting a little exciting and I am still finalising my 1920s Great Gatsby inspired look in my head! So I thought it might be helpful to think about building other vintage looks too...just in case any of you lovely darlings are attending a vintage party or in need of any inspiration!

To me, the real glitz and glam began in the 1920s but evolved into a deeper feminine state towards the 1930s....which carried on through to the 1950s because of an addictive fascination with the glamorous silver screen. The 1930s was not a trouble free decade by any means, as the Great Depression and WW2 began broiling in the backdrop of society. But with all the unrest came an opportunity for many to sooth their sores in the world of cinema.....and so the age of the silver screen sirens began captivating the world! There were shifts in day wear becoming more practical as WW2 shook the world and fashion seemed to have halted f…

Qipao Love: Part 5 ~ How-To choose and wear a Qipao (Cheongsam) that will love your frame!

A little warning is probably in order my this will be a rather comprehensive How-To Qipao post! I will try to incorporate my own knowledge as well as what I researched through time, to create a rough but helpful guide for ladies who might want to attempt wearing the Qipao! Why do I say attempt? In today's fast paced life the Qipao has become a rather occasional dress even for a faithful admirer like me and I can understand why it might not be the most popular attire in the world, but I also know that many ladies who admire the Qipao might resist the idea of wearing it because of different barriers. Being a lover of the Qipao me I know the fearful qualms and muffin top resistance to wearing a Qipao all too well.....whether it is a matter of figure, budget, impression, style, occasion, look or finding the excuse to wear a Qipao, I hope to be able to offer some help towards a solution and ask that you forgive me if I am too long winded. The Qipao really i…

Qipao Love: Part 1~ From Qi Pao to evolution of a dress about women!

Welcome my lovely darlings to the new address as the blogspot to custom domain transition is now officially completed! Worry not, if you are still using the address it should automatically divert to the blog and there is also a new e-mail address if you should like to drop me a line to say hello or ask any questions;! What better way to celebrate this transition than to start on one of my favourite topics.....with Part One of my "Qipao Love (All about Qipao)" series of posts!

Throughout my blog over the two years, I have mentioned the Chinese Qipao dress (also known as Cheongsam in Cantonese) quite a few times, especially during the run-up to Chinese New Year. Having a self confessed love of the Qipao, as some of you darlings who have been following may know, I can usually be spotted wearing the Qipao throughout the 15 days of Chinese New Year festivities and have been adding one or two new Qipao dresses t…
