My Sunday mornings have recently spiraled into pleasurable depths of laziness with the discovery of back to back 90210 episodes on Soapnet. I bask in the comfort of my sofa, engrossed in Brenda/Brandon/Kelly/Donna/David/Dylan melodrama until it's time for pilates. The effects of this new ritual appear to be creeping into my fashion subconscious as evident in todays bum grazing outfit.

The T-day lowdown

Moving beyond fashion for just a sec.... I wanted to share with you one of my other passions; Cooking, feeding the people I love and the art of the dinner party. So here is a peek at my Thanksgiving festivities.

Making the house inviting (the cats were pretty impressed too).

Setting the table with lots of candles and fall leaves.

The first course: Young onion and Gruyere tart.

We're not big turkey fans so I made Port Wine Braised Short Ribs with Potato and Parsnip Puree, Swiss Chard and Roasted Pearl Onions.

A Meyer Lemon Tart for dessert, thanks Mum xxx

Chocolate and Pistachio dipped meringues with our coffee.

My beautiful Mum.

Mike and Maria brought lots of cheese.

Dad tucking in.

Dannie and Weird Cat enjoying the perfect weather.

If it's good enough for Michael Hutchence...

More leather...
I used be very anti leather, believing that only Michael Hutchence and Jim Morrison could pull it off.... Bono and everyone who wasn't Mike or Jim just looked foolish and sweaty. Well, I take it back (except the Bono bit).

The YSL display

The iconic metallic silver 'Origami' cocktail dress by KRIZIA ca.1980s. So rare.

Black jersey 'Goddess' gown designed by BILL TICE ca.1970. I NEED this!

Blue/white silk chiffon print gown is French ca.1980.

My pal David has finally opened his fabulous store on Central. I popped by on Friday for a snoop and ended up falling in love with a couple of dresses. The shop is styled like a gallery space and it shows off the vintage designer pieces perfectly.... my idea of heaven.

Blanket Shawl

You can imagine my joy when I found this shawl at good old F21 whilst on a girly outing this weekend.
