It was my birthday the other week but I was so preoccupied with other things happening around us that it is only now that I have the time to tell you about it.
It fell on a Sunday and as I had to be in the office early on Monday, my husband decided to surprise me with a birthday lunch just for the two of us.
Luckily, I had just the right outfit for "when in doubt" situation or as I call it "In case of emergency" - my old time favourite, a wrap-around dress by DVF whose famous quote:"I design for the woman who loves being a woman" always resonates with me. Even though this particular dress has been in my wardrobe for quite some time, it has never failed to perform its duty. There is something nice and simple in its silhouette that makes me feel at ease every time I wear it, which fitted the brief perfectly.
Pilu at Acuna Bay and although I have never been there before, the name of the chef is very well known to both of us - Giovanni Pilu, a Sardinian born owner of the two-hatted restaurant Pilu at Freshwater, loved by Sydneysiders for the bold strong flavours of his country of births.
I recently inherited a very nice collection of vintage scarfs and when I don't wear them around my neck, I like to decorate my handbags with them.
And last but not least, my new twin rings that I bought at a shopping mall in one of the accessories shops for the staggering amount of $5 for two, just for the sake of getting a bargain, but when I put them on, they turned out to be a "perfect match".
