After the past few days of stormy skies, Monday welcomed us with sunshine, a great way to get back into the work grooveΒ after the long weekend and catch up on work for a new collection that I’m doing. And when work was done, nightfall greeted us with a full moon, a cool breeze and a clear sky full of stars–a perfect night to enjoy a party by the bay on board a beautiful, luxury, sailing yacht.

The invitation for the John Walker & Sons party said the event was black-tie, so Ito dressed up in a tuxedo and I wore an off-white gown of my design. I knew it was a formal occasion, but I was still surprised at how beautifully decked-out–pun intended!–the party venue was, with its clusters of club chairs, gorgeous (open) bar and ‘Great Gatsby’-esque ambience on the wooden deck, along with a panoramic view of the bay and the yacht.

Later, going on board the dreamy ‘Voyager’, we enjoyed the breeze on deck with a fresh round of drinks in hand before heading down for a little “Scotch 101″…I’m not really a Scotch-drinker, so my first proper taste was from a glass of their newly launched, triple-malt scotch, named ‘Odyssey’. I can now safely say my taste-buds are spoiled for life. Not a bad way to begin the week (and get inspired by the vintage 1920’s/1930’s references), don’t you think? πŸ˜‰

PS- Now if only we could have weighed anchor and sailed away into the horizon in search of adventure…hey, one can dream, right??
