Forget the LBD (ok jokes) – but, what about the LITTLE BLACK SHORTS?
I love them in spring, I love them in summer.
I love them casual, i love them dressy.
I love them on The Hart Of Dixie and the resulting disruption they cause to the town of Bluebell.
This past Sunday, I channeled my inner Zoe Hart and took my favourite little black shorts out to Brooklyn.
Teamed up with a summery colour blocked tank – and my new Manolo Blahniks (their first excursion!!)

A truly perfect day in the sun.
Attractive men battling it out while riding beautiful horses was already a seller. Throw in champagne, a postcard perfect view, an excuse to get dressed up and there is no way you could keep me away!
Welcome – to the 2013 Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic…
You had me at high-tea, but make it at The Plaza with some lovely ladies and I am there in a heartbeat.
The place is luscious. From the flowers that greet you just past the main entrance, to the decadent decor beyond.
Who can forget the Carrie and Big conversation outside his engagement party “Your girl is lovely, Hubbel”, to the real life wedding of celebrities such as Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
There are many reason why even the “worst” room (broom closet) costs half a monthly mortgage repayment and the wait-list for a Saturday summer wedding is longer than fifth avenue!
A delightful afternoon spent in opulent New York fashion…

What to wear to this lavish occasion?
Pleated dress (similar here), belt from Bondi Beach markets years ago (similar here), Guess jacket, Gucci clutch & Saks Fifth Avenue nude pumps.
Go and find your inner pussycat ladies – the feline frenzy is officially on!
To celebrate this and the fact that it is NYFW, Glamour Magazine got everyone out (even in the snow) to the Glamour Cat Fashion Concept Store.
I don’t need much of an excuse to be persuaded to head down to the Meatpacking district – and getting purr-alicious was a done deal!
See the cat craze below.
Cat eyes in progress!
Cat eyes – I went with a mix of 5 and 8.
Cat eyes – thanks to MAC!
Every kitty needs a yarn ball!
Fish choc cookies. YUM!
Cat nail art.
Purr-alicious! — with cat eyes, nail, ring and broach!
While I have to admit not all Picasso works are created equal, I did want to share two of my favourite pieces from the exhibit with you.
From the very beautiful to the very disturbing, the collection displayed is incredible viewing.
Now if only I was one of those fortunate enough to have a Picasso in my private collection…
