Kate Moss Leaving Lady Gaga's Private Show in London



Kate Moss looks amazing as usual in a studded leather jacket, basic top, leather skirt and pointed stilettos as she leaves an intimate Lady Gaga show in London on May 12th.  Although the model is also known for sporting opulent furs, it-bags and diamonds, I much prefer Ms. Moss when she returns to her signature low-key rocker attire.  So effortlessly cool and not to mention, CHIC as hell!

Friend of Mine's SS11 presentation at RAFW only solidifies why I'm so deeply in love with this brand.  While keeping their garments clean and simple, Friend of Mine has a special way of making their looks more interesting by playing with texture, embellished accessories and unique hemlines.  There are soooo many great pieces in this collection...

Biggie for Discarded to Divine


My 2 year-old Brussels Griffon, Biggie, was featured in a San Francisco fashion show and auction benefit titled, Discarded to Divine, the other night.

Here's a bit about the show:

"Discarded to Divine is a charitable event showcasing the talents of professional and aspiring designers who transform discarded, donated clothing into one-of-a-kind couture creations and exquisite home décor which are auctioned to benefit those overcoming poverty, homelessness and domestic violence."- Discarded to Divine

Sporting the Chihuahua Day Jacket created by designer, Marianne Pearson, Biggie strutted his stuff on the catwalk for the very first time!  It was all a bit nerve racking for me, but in the end, it was really nice to know that all proceeds went towards such an amazing cause- the St. Vincent de Paul Society of San Francisco.

A big thanks to 7x7 Magazine and Discarded to Divine for allowing Biggie to make his runway debut that evening!  We had a blast.
