What does it take to drag two NYC wannabe socialite out of bed and into
the harsh daylight on a Manhattan Sunday afternoon? Well for us it was an invitation from the cool gang at Flawless Media Relations. They invited the NewYorkCool.com Shopping Girls to a hot lingerie fashion show, actually a
retro department store fashion brunch with a cheeky modern twist.

So off we were to Marion's Continental Restaurant for the Jillian Sherry Fashion Brunch.

Marion's sure has changed since the old days when it was a burger joint with entertainment provided by the World Famous Pontani Tap Dancing Sisters (they still perform at Marion's - check it out). It now has a gourmet menu and a cool décor with umbrellas and butterflies hanging from the ceiling. Deidre and I quickly found a table and ordered our fix of Mimosas and coffee.

With drinks in hand and food on the way we were ready for the show. And what a show it was. Only in New York can you eat an elegant breakfast while beautiful women walk by modeling totally sheer underwear. Coffee, tea or sex anyone?

serves amazing breakfast buns!

The lingerie was gorgeous. What makes Jillian's line so very special is that each piece of the silk lingerie is hand painted, numbered and signed by the artist, Marci Cheary. Ms Cheary can also hand paint a special message on the lingerie. Happy Valentines!

Viva Couture! Check out those roses!

The lingerie was gorgeous, harkening back to the more romantic era of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby.

We had a great time at the brunch. Who would have known undies for brunch could could be so much fun? Then I had to run because I was throwing a party of my own that night. But for a brief time in this hectic city there was champagne and music and the silky goddesses at Marion's. It was DeLovely.
