It's the day after Thanksgiving and even though I modified mom's recipe by 1/8, I still have a massive amount of leftovers.
I may be on my own for the holiday. But, with two Portuguese water dogs and a house sitting gig in Cape May, I am far from lonely.
Allow me to explain. Since the CFDA awards (Nov 7), I have been sheltering in a renovated Victorian beach house owned by Minnie Belle, a former Halston model who once worked as a Shirley Chisolm's campaign manager. Minnie hired me to watch her house while she scouts humpback whales with her boyfriend in Alaska.
In addition to $500 a week, Minnie granted me unfettered access to her three closets and SAINT, her 1966 Volvo P1800 convertible.
Tonight, like every other night since I arrived, I light a Juniper candle and try to recreate a look from the 2023 spring/summer collections. Today I channeled Victoria Beckham (VB) and selected a pale pink bias cut ankle length gown from closet #3. Sadly, Minnie did not have a heavily fringed VB handbag. So, I simply tucked one of her oversized velvet shawls under my arm...very Victoria Beckham in Paris.
