The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

Dearest Cate,

A quick note to say I have survived meeting your dear, dear Mother. It

appears I have been drafted into service. It's safe to say that the mold

was shattered shortly after the gods on high whipped her into existence. I

can only imagine she's grown more charming with age. One can only hope

to be as feisty and well appointed as she as the years roll on.

The apartment will be stunning once we finish "doing things up" a bit and

it's quite possible that I'll live to tell the tale. Once we moved beyond

her insistence on swans in the loo we seemed to get along just fine. She

clearly is used to having things her way, but on the subject of the powder

room's gilt swan flanked WC I had to draw the line. Thankfully she was

distracted by my suggestion the library walls be coated with 17 layers of

aubergine lacquer. Evidently 17 layers are, in her opinion, excessive. She

feels 14 layers to be the preferred number. Be assured the painter will

be deliver 14 layers; as I have every confidence she will be counting!

She waved off any suggestion of paperwork preferring to give me the

number of her solicitor who was kind enough to set things straight, so to

speak.

Priority number one is keeping your dear mother happy. I live for such

assignments. And never fear; the apartment will be fabulous too.

I'll drop you regular notes on our adventures which are sure to be many.

Right now I'm off to preview palace size Ziegler rugs for the Living

Room,  turquoise is the desired color and only the finest quality will do.

Ciao!

James Swan
