Selfridges London Oxford, a world of fantasty, indoor snow and roof top lakes.

I made a little trip to the Big Smoke last week for a press event regarding Selfridges
icon' Xmas (I know, fashion works way too far in advanced for one to remain sane). Want to see some of the more rediculous from the world of high-end retail?

Tiny slutty shoes, as hand-modelled by myself and Casey Gillespie of London Confidential. The whole 25 pairs of shoes act as an Advent Calendar for the bargain price of £18,000.00.

So, whilst milling around the press room spotting treats and delights, eating gorgeous things and touching expensive fashions all of which are soon to be on offer for Xmas shoppers I was told about a secret.... there was a party on the roof.

In true Selfridges style they'd spied an opportunity for fantasy and flooded the bloody roof to make way for a pop-up boating lake. Why? Because some rich bloke founded a new sugar (darling) and we must make cocktails to celebrate! I felt I was in an episode of AbFab. After Oysters and HixFix cocktails at Hix Restaurant we went up the express lift (with a library within it...) to have a look.




Incredible isn't it?
