The Scene
Last day in San Fran. Packed in a lot to this traveling edition of Mommy and Me Sunday. Grabbed waffles and french toast at The Four Seasons. Delish!

Shopped at Saks and Macy's - I got a Marc top and my mom got a Theory one. Both 60 percent off. Score!

Fell in lust with this Prada sequin ombre clutch. Sigh.

Roamed around Chinatown and

Got dim sum at Peaches' fave. Yum.

Then walked to Fisherman's Wharf. Oooowie our feets.

Saw the Golden Gate bridge. Purty NorCal.

And Alcatraz. Scary killerz.

Rode a Trolley back to Chinatown. Nerdy tourist style!

Looked adorably cute doing it. Meow!

Un then we STILL had a few hours to kill before our 10:50 flight so we watched Australia. Much better than we expected. But then again I could watch Hugh Jackman COCK that eyebrow on screen for 3 hours and be a happy camper ;)

Wonderful holiday weekend. YAY!
Only one sour note: I caught my mom's cold today. BOO!

The Commentary
Thankfully today was much warmer in San Fran so my packing faux paus wasn't so obvious. Phew! Love the color combos of today's outfit. Must remember to wear these brown leggings more - especially with boots.

This sweater reminds me of this gorg Robert Rodriguez blazer.

And this stunning bag. Ah to be so airport chic. I avoid heels like the plague when I fly.

So while most of my ensembles were questionable this weekend, my mom had her looks down pat every day. She stole my heart with her brown Burberry/grey American Apparel cuteness today.

Nothing like being the daughter of a yummy mummy.

Except maybe being a yummy mummy.

The Scene
Mr. Diabolina and Sable Crow flew back to LA this morning. Leaving my mom and me to eat and and shop in girly peace.

We started the day with breakfast at XYZ at the W hotel.


Then we spent the whole day gobbling up every square inch of Union Square. What a shopping district. I dare say it is my favorite...EVER, ANYWHERE.

Happy to report these Loeffler Randall pumps were the only pricey item to tempt my wallet today.

At $200 they would have been as close as I'd ever get to the Christian Louboutin python lace ups that make me weep. Alas Neiman's didn't have my size. Not meant to be.

In the end, I bought exactly 3 things for about $100:

In the evening, introduced my mom to my one, my only, my Bong Su, site of my foodgasm in early October. We ordered the cod and coconut rice again and this time I added the pomegranate duck. Good lordy it was delish.

Wonderfully girly, relaxing day with my mama. It's starting to feel like the holidays...FINALLY!

The Commentary
I focused so much on getting last night's outfit pitch perfect that I really screwed the pooch on the rest of the weekend. I packed as if I was headed to Hawaii. In the spring. F.

Even with the cropped leggings and the wrap sweater I looked out of place during the day.

I should have brought boots and jeans and hats

And tights and layers and scarves.

Instead of the jersey tulipy dress and eyelet jacket, I should have done black pants and booties and statement top and fierce jacket.

The heavy coat and the bare legs would have worked if I was wearing heels. But with flats the whole look was wrong wrong wrong. Sigh.

At least my golden tootsies matched my mom - again ;)

The Scene
Early this morning my mom and I (in matching Marc Jacobs) flew up to San Francisco accompanied by

Mr. Diabolina and Sable Crow (in matching gray zip ups)
Possibly the cutest foursome ever.

We traveled to see Peaches headline the longest running production in Broadway history. Kinda a big deal. Kinda my dream for my best friend come true. Kinda so much excitement I felt like throwing up all day. Ugh.

Before picking up our house seats at the box office, the four of us grabbed breakfast at local institution Dottie's. Highly recommend the meal though the service and Tenderloin location were, um, less than stellar.

In the afternoon, we shopped in Union Square. Sable Crow snapped up some great Black Friday steals at John Varvatos.

And payed homage to the very first Armani store he ever set foot in at the wee age of 16. Just happened to be housed in a stunning old bank building. Perfect for a future financial wizard and fabulous fashionisto.

Similarly perfect was the fact that my Chanel store was right next to Betsey Johnson. Remember how Peaches signature style is tres Betsey??? Loves it! Took it as a sign that me and my bestie were meant to be.

For dinner, the four of us dined at Ame at the St. Regis.

Me (and my boobs) had the cod. And a martini to calm my pre-show jitters.

Mr. Diabolina had some delish seafood special that was too small.

My mom and Sable Crow had the lamb chomps. They won.

Then it was show time. I held hands with my mom and my Mr. D as one of our nearest and dearest commanded the stage for nearly three hours with his gorgeous voice and stunning presence. At one point, I flashed on the first moment I laid eyes on him when we were 18 and knew he'd be a star. I hooted and hollered when he took his bow and soaked in all the well deserved applause. I silently wept as I witnessed the beginning of his dream take flight.

After the show, the four of us waited by the stage store for Peach.

With the rest of his groupies.

Then we went out for a quick drink to celebrate our very own angel of music. He had to head home early since he had two more shows the next day.

But he stuck around until midnight to help celebrate Sable Crow's birthday.

What a gift of a day.

What a life.

The Commentary
Tonight the play dictated the fashion color palette.

My mom, Sable Crow and I all instinctively rocked black and white ensembles. I threw in a little red for good measure.

Rocked my faux Chanel pearls for the first time. Bought them on Canal street a few years ago. Never quite sure how to style them. They are a whole lotta look for L.A. Too dramatic. But they felt just right in San Francisco though. Especially at the theater.

Didn't get nearly enough shots of the gorgeousness that is this new D & G dress!!! Got it at Crossroads a few weeks ago. Just $37. That magical Italian darting around the bust lifts and separates everything. And the hemline flutes out ever so slightly to balance out the hips. Delicious perfection.

Ironically, Dolce and Gabbana round toe pumps similar to this pair but better were the only thing that caught my eye today while we were shopping.

About $250 at Neiman's. May try to find them when I get back to L.A.

I felt perfectly dressed tonight. I also felt like a little girl. The theater always does that to me. My parents loved taking me to shows as a child. I loved the magic of it all, the costumes, the makeup, the pretty boys singing. Tonight I got chills as I witnessed this little girl fall in love with the theater. And with my pretty Peaches.

Thankfully, she'll never know he's into Betsey Johnson. That would probably ruin it for her ;)
