Capsule collection

I've always scoffed at the idea of a capsule wardrobe.
But, on a recent work trip to Sydney, I had no choice but to think of ways to make a few clothes go a long way.
So, I packed my suitcase with the following:

Two little black dresses.
One stretchy black pencil skirt.
Three cardigans.
Three blouses.
Black tights.
One belt.
Boots and dress shoes.

Sunday night neatness. Wardrobe ready to go for the working week.
Thursday's, Tuesday's and Wednesday's outfits (oddly happy in the hotel mirror at 7.30am).
Monday's and Friday's workwear.

Zumbo gambles on a sweet treat

Adriano Zumbo's quite a rock star up here in Sydney.
The "celebrity" pastry chef's Willy Wonka-esque shop in Star Casino, is like a big bag of mixed lollies and it appears to pack in the tourists and young girls and their dessert-loving male friends.
Ooh, how I'd like one of these lit-up letters...

This looks disturbingly like my husband.
