Went to a Marvelous Party.

Mrs. E. and I went to a birthday party Friday night last. It was quite the occasion with a tent, a candle bearing chandelier suspended amongst a garland of lemon leaves, hot and cold running service and fabulous company. The sport coat has a windowpane pattern that the vest picked up and the tie is a new Drake’s number worn for the first time. The guest of honor is known for his bow tie collection. The slippers went along for the ride since I forgot to take them off in the rush to get tot he party.

An odd vest is a good thing to have on hand for those in-between evenings that start out warm and, by the time cocktails have ended and the sun is down, turn chilly.

  1. Tres Chic, very Gatsbyesque. Does the bow tie have pointed ends? As far as your slippers going along for the ride, what a great idea, I think I’ll dust off the old Stubbs and Wootens and take them for a spin.
