Today I woke up with a terrible case of sore throat. It looks like both Anastasia and I, finally, came down with a flue. But even despite this fact I am smiling, because yesterday I had the most beautiful Monday ever! - the velvet Monday.:-)
My wonderful friend Clair is visiting New York from Paris and we spent entire day yesterday enjoying the most delicious tea in Velvet Lounge in Manhattan. I had,probably 3 or 4 cups of "velvet current" tea, it is such a treat for me!
We also went for a velvet scrub treatment in one of the New York's Spas, had so much fun deliberating if Clair should try and eat her "chocolate" mask - it smelled so delicious!:-)
One thing about Clair is that she is full of surprises. :-) I have been in love with this fabulous red velvet Antonio Berardi dress since I saw his Collection for the first time. There were several versions of it and I would love to wear them all! But the one with long sleeves and crystal detailing on the back became my number one favorite.
Well, Clair was so kind to bring it for me from Paris and it is even more beautiful in person.Huge THANK YOU,Clair, I know you are reading this post.:-) I simply can not take my eyes off it.:-) I will, probably, spend entire day today in bed looking at my new fabulous Antonio Berardi, trying to recover. Clair seems to think that I definitely have French blood in my veins. She says that the best medicine for a french woman is a fabulous garment. I agree!!!
Yesterday I noticed that the bushes of my velvet roses in my garden are coming to life.:-) I see tiny little green leafs sprouting from the stems. I am wishing everybody velvet week!:-))) It is 7:40a.m. in new York and normally I would be racing around being busy with millions of things. Not today!:-)
