Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends and readers.  Now that Abe has officially been pardoned by President Obama making Abe TOTUS, may you all have a lovely Thanksgiving with your family and friends. And all that food.  And the promise of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales - the previews are looking very tempting this year...

I imagine that Thanksgiving dinners can be as difficult and stressful as Christmas dinners so if you're at your wits end already, here's Matt Bellassai's guide to winning this Thanksgiving.

Closer to home, today's big news in fashion is Target Australia's big reveal of the latest designer to collaborate with them.  Bonjour John Paul Gaultier!  Bonjour nautical stripes, edgy interpretations of denim and leather as well as iconic tailored suiting!
This is the only image I've seen of the range which sounds like it will be Missoni For Target like in size and range with clothing for all ages as well as homewares.  Launch will be sometime in 2016 and after my credit card got a break this year with the Dion Lee collaboration, I can see myself strategizing my haul from the Gaultier range the moment it is fully revealed.

It finally happened yesterday.  The outfit I planned to wear to work the next day actually got worn to work the next day.  I'm a serial offender of not following through with my work wardrobe plans.  I've got Sydney's erratic spring weather as an excuse for the moment but as summer rapidly approaches (as in approaching as quickly as next week), I'll have nothing to blame except for my own whimsy.

I accessorised with this Lovisa bargain that I bought ages ago.  Subtle bedazzling with diamante is always a good look this close to the official start of the festive season.

Today's shaping up to be a staying in and seeking air conditioning kind of day.  It was already 29C at 7.30 this morning.  Toddler SSG and I hit the shops early for the groceries and breakfast.  I even managed a bonus 5 minutes of work related reading and highlighting with my coffee.

The butcher at Woolies is a bit old school British.  Sausages come wrapped in paper - just like they do on episodes of Nigella and Jamie.

And how retro are these minced meat crowns?

Do you set your work outfits out the night before?  And do you always wear what you put out?


  1. Your bling is on fleek.
    I like to think things through the night before as it saves time.

    Looking forward to Sydders next weekend.

    1. Hoping the heat settles down for your visit!

  2. If I didn't plan my outfit the night before I'd never get anywhere on time the next day, haha! Well, I'd be even later I guess, it's not always easy running on time with a toddler as I'm sure you know!

    Thanks for the headsup about the Target collection - it sounds like something I'd want to check out, I love a good stripe! :)

    1. I am going to take a leaf out of your book, Mica and stick to the outfits I've planned.
