I know this is exceptionally random and irrelevant, but beautiful, sunny weekends call for thinking about how pretty my food should look. You’ve seen what I wore and what I saw during Fashion Week, but what I ate is something generally confined to my Twitter, my Pinterest and my future Instagram (EDIT: I now have Instagram! @Margaret__Zhang), I’m sure (I always say that if I didn’t love fashion so much, I’d be a food blogger no questions asked)…
The toast I had this morning doesn’t deserve to be compared with these three morning munchy moments – maybe Fashion Week makes food better-looking too:
- Breakfast trifle. On the first day, I stopped by Woolies on my morning run, stockpiled natural yoghurt, berries and the best muesli of my life, and proudly brought it back to our hotel room. I think Connie and I spent more time putting it together in the hotel’s sizable wine glasses than actually eating them, but have a pretty picture and thank us later.
- ZIMMERMANN. The show was held in the most beautiful warehouse space (and I do have some exceptionally trippy photos to share), but when the first thing you see upon arrival is a counter of stripey straws and perfect orange juice, the chilly morning is suddenly not so much, and you’re transported to something like Edith A. Miller’s amazing stripey lookbook.
- Early date. On the Thursday, the beautiful ladies of Bespoke PR and My Wardrobe hosted a sweet and relaxed blogger breakfast for conversations at length about printed pants and pointy shoes. I’ve never had dates with muesli before – it definitely needs to happen again.
Who says fashion people don’t eat.
And your favourite breakfast is…?
