Breakfast with Burberry

{Burberry dress, Casadei suede pumps}

Last Friday was a très magnifique day in the sense that I achieved a maje weight-loss goal (9 pounds and counting!) and was given the chi chi von fancy opportunity to host a Burberry Prorsum exclusive runways experience at Soho Beach House.

I decided to wear the very Burberry dress I wore to my wedding’s rehearsal dinner 10 years ago to the event because proper fashion etiquette dictates you “Wear the house to the house.” This in itself was a feat because I’ve given birth twice since I wore this particular racy and lacy number last and my affinity for carbs has doubled since then as well. Oy!

So slipping into that dress on Friday was everything! It’s obvious my training seshes with Massi and eating like a rabbit are paying off. Now for the party…my friends and I viewed the Prorsum Spring/Summer 2012 Womenswear Show direct from London’s Hyde Park. The video of the London fashion show was decidedly transcendental — and according to Chief Creative Officer of Burberry Christopher Bailey, Spring calls for jewel tones, metallics, laser-cut trenches and the sickest satin wedges you’ve EVER seen (promise!).

After the presentation, we perused the racks and accessories from the Town & Field collection (think fox and hound-accented hardware) and shopping via iPads.

And after imbibing one-too-many mimosas, my inner wild child headed straight toward the marble tub for an impromptu photo shoot because the tub told me to do it. Swear.

    9 pounds….sprinting faster….eating like a rabbit….getting that “bouncy” look, and avoiding injury. Your athletic soul is coming alive…hip hip hooray for Maria!!!! Who said Fashion and exercise dont go together. You can’t wear the Casadei suede pumps without a sexy and happy interior. Booyah…. :3)
