DOMESTIC GODDESS: Inspired by the Italian language classes which Mr Luscious and I are taking, and memories of fabulous holidays in Italy, I attempted to make a saffron risotto, Milanese style, this week.

And, after less-than-successful experiences in the past, this attempt was surprisingly fab!

OUR LITTLE LUSCIOUS WORLD: Introducing our Luscious shopping favourites

The Luscious List: Brands and stores

Every day people email asking me where I shop, what my favourite brands are, and how can they achieve their own luscious style. It’s flattering that people ask, but also a bit overwhelming when I open up my inbox each day. Apologies to everyone I have yet to respond to!

It gets tricky because there are soooo many shopping options, from my love of markets and “op shops” all the way through to haute couture, but I’ve put together a LUSCIOUS LIST which may assist a little, featuring mostly mainstream, online stores. The markets and speciality destinations etc will have to wait for another time.

It’s mostly (female) fashion-related but also comprises some homewares, beauty, and other stores where I’ve found gems. Not all the stores are glamorous and expensive as I’m not averse to traipsing through hideous aisles of junk to find a tiny pot of shopping “gold”.

And when it comes to simple stuff like a plain white T-shirt, I’m definitely giving my money to a regular store such as Target rather than an overpriced designer version. A plain white cotton T is a plain cottom white T, yes?

Why not take a look, and feel free to leave a comment below telling me about your favourite brands and stores.

SHOP THE RUNWAY: Moda Operandi


Loving the Fall RTW collections? Then shop straight from the runway via Moda Operandi.

It’s a great concept that allows you to select items as they appear on the catwalk, so as you have a “wow!” moment, you can pre-order it before you forget.  Clever, huh?

It’s the brainchild of Lauren Santo Domingo (New York darling and contributing editor to Vogue) and Aslaug Magnusdottir (entrepreneur), and the team includes Indre Rockefeller and Hayley Bloomingale, of the famed Rockefeller and Bloomingdale families, respectively. These are women who know how to shop.

Learn more about the business model and the team.

I’ve been picking through thousands of photos, and narrowing down my favourite shows. Here are my selections so far:

…and more to come from London, Paris and Milan.
