Earlier this week, Peaches sent me this article about breakfast spots in L.A. Notified me that he'd like to sample a few the next time he's in town. He is the only pig I know that plans meals months in advance. Love him.
The article got me thinking that I've been dying to check out the new hotel The London. And THAT got me thinking about this Sable Crow blog post which got me thinking about another little piggie I know, Weemo.
Fast forward to today - the three of us had a fancified Sunday brunch with
One impeccably turned out Sable Crow
And two adorably hungry Monkeys. Truly the perfect six-some!
The setting was stylish. Very Kelly Wearstler, very Bergdorf Goodman, very Sable Crow.
Love how he perfectly matched the decor in shades of steely gray. Love the emblazoned Juicy Couture too.
The food was stupendous - Gordon Ramsay stupendous. Proof positive is the eyes of cuisine connossiuers rolling back into their monkey heads! Hee hee!
But hearing my mom laugh was the best part of the experience. She adores Sable Crow. She gets such a kick out of his clothes and his stories and well, his gay Andy Rooney SELF.
And ever since my birthday party, she's been falling for The Monkeys. It was great to hear her giggle over their antics. It was great to see her relax and forget.
It was a bit of trip down memory lane for the two of us. When the hotel was The Bel Age in the 80s, we'd come here for Mother's Day brunches. Have such fond memories of us dressed up with my dad, hoovering waffles and omelettes.
My mom also got a HUGE kick out of the fact that half the table was bloggers. She kept encouraging our obnoxiousness. Setting up shots. Suggesting angles. F. It's like feeding the animals at the zoo. Not a good idea.
I love that Mr. Monkey and my monkey as the dignified non-bloggers at the table were so tolerant of all the picture-taking. They are gems.
In fact, Mr. D was on a roll today. After brunch, he ran a few errands and picked me up the Gossip Girl DVD. FINALLY I can be part of the in-fashionista crowd!!! I don't deserve him.
Relaxing weekend after a stressful week.
3.1 Phillip Lim dress
Chanel bag and earrings
Tarina Tarantino Mod Kitty bracelet
The big debut of the Phillip Lim little black dress. Ugh it is simply perfect. Love the drape at the neck and the arm holes. So elegant.
The peeps of white at the hemline and at the pockets make me giddy. So Chanel.
But the drape at the back is my favorite part. It's just the right hint of sexy for me.
Makes me want to dance like this Josephine Baker print in our bathroom.
Today was also the grand debut of the Pucci scarf! Originally wanted to wear it around my neck but it didn't work with the neckline of the dress.
Then I wanted to tie it around my head but figured it would be too much, too Maria.
Ultimately just tied it around my bag and called it a day. Provided a much needed pop of color(s). Think it worked beautifully with the Prada shoes and made the whole look more brunch appropriate. More festive.
Did you notice my mom's top? It's Forever 21!!!
Great copy of the designer top all the glitteratti were wearing earlier this year!!! Suckers!!!!!!!!
Loved how she and I matched YET AGAIN today! We both even wore Chanel earrings. Yummers!
There was actually lots of matching today. I wore my Mod Kitty for Weemo and she wore it for me. ADORE!
Even the non-bloggers in the house matched in polos and jeans. I take it as a sign that we're all linked. That today was meant to be.

Sable Crow's behind the scenes look here.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE blog cross-over episodes!
p.s. Here are two of the dresses I am considering getting with my left over credit at Phillip Lim. Part of the holiday line. I love.
p.s. Random note: The Bel Age hotel was also the site of the infamous Color Me Badd Beverly Hills 90210 episode. Do you remember???
It is also the episode where they caught Donna's mom cheating. And I do believe Dylan "lived" at The Bel Age Eloise-style for a season between drugging and living at that random shack of a house. 'member????
Maybe there's a potential tie-in with the new hotel and the new season coming up...
