It was anything but bright this morning in Sydney. And it was the start of the weekend. It's been raining buckets since at least 6 am today with no clearing of the skies in sight.
Determined to make the most of the weekend regardless, we went to Cavalicious (Our Local we love so much its designation deserves to be capitalized) for coffee and Italian pastries.

With the driving rain hanging around all morning, there was nothing else to do but push on with the housework and other chores around the Manor.
The SSG Mobile was parked strategically in the driveway to make the most of the deluge. I've just checked and it's amazing - the dust encrusted rear window is now spotless.

Carly Findlay, do you still have your Cotton On sweater with the hot pink love heart on the front? Because if you do, you're now challenged to wear yours this weekend! That's half an outfit sorted already.
Feeling good about being so ahead of the chores at only 10am on Saturday, I hit the road in roving fashion reporter mode.
The big news. Only 4 days to go, people.....
There were reassuring busy sounds emanating from behind the awning. Plus serious yet Euro-chic men in black suits looking at their blackberries as they walked in and out of the door to the right in my photo....
The not so big news without the benefit of my fashion correspondent iPhone photos (so I had to trawl google images instead):

- There's an awful lot of cut outs in the Dion Lee for Cue collection. And I don't mean the cardboard kind. Things that looked edgy yet practical from the front actually had rather large cut outs or vents around the sides. I'm sure there's a fashionism to more accurately describe them. Perhaps a sign for people like me to leave things well alone on the rack rather than risk getting stuck in a painful pose in the changerooms....
- My pennies are well and truly saved for Honolulu in May. My special occasion in Darwin dress search has hit a dead end in a city that has winter well and truly on its hangers.
