Cecil Beaton's classic shot is my all-time fave inspiration. Gown up!!

So why am I in the party mood? #1 Because it's rolling on summer. #2 Because I just went to the 90th birthday bash of one of my favouite men in the world (my grandfather-in-law). 90! And it was rocking. #3 Because I'm about to launch my book, The Dressing Table, in which there is an entire chapter about parties, and for which I will be throwing one. Or two. In fact as many as I can get away with.
Herewith, classic party dressing inspiration:

Invite fun guests...

Giddy up Bianca

Dress to the nines...

Don't forget your furry guests might wish to dress up too...
