"The Cat's Whiskers in Soho was a live music club and the birthplace of the hand jive in the 1950s - the place was so small, a new style of dance with limited movement had to be invented."

Stepping into Selfridges, I always feel like a kid in a sweet shop...and their window displays are unbelievable!
