Before the lecture there was a lot of cocktails and mingling among the attendees, and unlike the last lecture I attended, most of the people there were all dressed up in beautiful vintage and vintage inspired outfits. This time around I made sure to paparazzi some of the great ones.
Another thing about this lecture which I loved was the fact that there were plenty of very comfortable seats for all of us to sit in, In addition, the venue itself that the lecture was being held at (Hotel Rex) was very lovely and had a nice vintage feeling to it. Which as you can imagine added quite nicely to the going back in time experience that you sometimes get at these events.
Throughout the lecture there were many "oooohs" and "aaaahhs" in regards to the gorgeous jewelry that was being shown but there were also many laughs throughout the lectures due to Aaron's well places witty and fun jokes. When discussing a rather remarkable Cartier piece which, instead of clasping closed like most jewelry, hung loosely over the wearers shoulders and that had several large diamonds, the largest being something like 114 carats; Aaron ends the opening remark about it with: "So your basically wearing the most expensive scarf in the world... and its heavy, and your cold". I'm still chuckling over that.
Until next time,
