Move over, David Gandy, there’s a new male model in town! Meet Menswear Dog ~ “a 3 year old shiba inu living in NYC with a panache for all things style.”
Love this creative, canine approach to menswear! Gents can learn how to wear a chunky shawl collar cardigan, how to stay warm with layering, and more. Paws down, he is one stylish shiba ~ but when it comes to drool-worthy male models ~ we’ll still swoon over that gorgeous Gandy…

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery ~ but I say, why try to be somebody else? Especially when, as the good Dr. S points out, “There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” That is pretty flippin’ fantastic if you ask moi! Stop wishing you were this or that and start swinging from the chandelier and toasting your “one & only-ness”!
There’s no harm in channeling your style icons for inspiration ~ but make the look your own! As any true original knows, personal style is the bee’s knees and (unless you’re an identical twin) copycats are never in vogue! But these kittens are pretty cute…
You know what else is très cliché? Fakes. Fakes are never in fashion. Just ask Manti T’eo. Or that cute well-meaning Jan Brady ~“His name is George, George….Glass.”
Jan gets points for creativity with her fake boyfriend, but it’s too bad she didn’t realize how groovy she was. Life is too short to waste pretending to be something you’re not!

It’s freezing outside today, ladies ~ the perfect time for toasty hats and coats!
Luckily we have Don to keep us warm! Yes, it’s official, darlings ~ our date with Don begins on April 7th! And in my pretty lil’ opinion, he is quel worth the wait. Love this sunny, soaking-up-the-sun snap of he and his Zou Bisou Bisou beach bunny wife in Hawaii (circa the highly anticipated Season Six). Mrs. D sure knows how to rock a Pucci-esque bikini and island-y cocktail! Obvi a prerequisite for any Wife of Don.
Also striking my color fancy today? The bright rainbow hues of these pretty pencils (a gift from a style-savvy and all around spectacular friend).
These neon pencils will brighten up any project or to-do list! Perhaps Joanie should purchase some for the creatives at Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Pryce…

“Elegance is the only beauty that never fades.” ~Audrey Hepburn
Lovely. Chic. Compassionate. Charming. Classic. 20 years ago today we lost Audrey Hepburn, a gem of all gems. She sparkled across the horizon from the day she was born until the day she left us and still shines down from the stars above.

Last night my purrrrific girlfriends and I wore our animal print PJs and sipped plenty o’ prosecco as we pre-gamed for our favorite awards show of the season.
And the show did not disappoint, darlings! From hilarious Tina & Amy and adorable Ben & Jen ~ to Bill’s charisma and George’s magnetism ~ the A-List brought their A-game to the Golden Globes.
I thought the biggest style statement of the evening was just enjoy yourself! Clearly, Amy had the time of her life…
And the fashion wasn’t bad either! Here’s a quick re-cap.
Kate Hudson ~ quelle bombshell! One of my top picks and mesmerizing in McQueen, but I wish she went with a sleek high ponytail instead.
Julianne Moore in Tom Ford ~ always a class act. Love the sleek, chic lines in of-the-moment black & white, the pretty tie in the back, and her shimmery sparklers are fabulous.
Kerry Washington ~ molto caldo in Miu Miu! Just wish the dress lining was longer to better enhance the beautifully detailed, shimmery overlay. On the fence re: her bangs & highlights.
Naomi Watts ~ beautiful in bordeaux, fits-like-a-glove Zac Posen.
Emily Blunt ~ lovely in lacy gold Michael Kors & manages to make cut-outs classy. The chignon & berry baubles are the cherry on top.
Jen Garner sparkles in Vivienne Westwood ~ especially in the glow of her smitten spouse. My vote for cutest couple.
Michelle Dockery ~ ever the Lady in Alexandre Vauthier. Impeccable fit on her regal frame. Her genuine smile throughout the evening was her best accessory.
Jessica Alba in Christian Dior ~ always nails it! She is red carpet perfection. Kudos to Brad G.
Anne Hathaway in Chanel ~ I imagine the detail was even prettier in person. And nobody does a red lip better than Anne H.
Jessica Chastain in Calvin Klein. Love her, love the watery-blue hue ~ but poor fit and confusing hair.
Halle in Versace ~ she’d be gorgeous in a paper bag, but even a paper bag is better than this dress…
Lea Michele in Elie Saab ~ even though she went overboard on the fake-n-bake, I think the dress & hair are pretty.
Amanda Seyfried ~ gorgeous Givenchy gown, which I imagine was even lovelier in person, but her skin and hair are grey against it. A pop of pink or red on her lips would have done wonders!
Taylor Swift ~ in eggplant Donna Karan. Snooze.
J. Lo in Zuhair Murad ~ trying to remember if she packed Caspar’s lunch…
Eva Longoria ~ too much going on in this Pucci concoction for her petite frame. She’s still pretty (despite the poufed-up pompadour up-do that I will never understand).
Lovely Nicole Kidman and son.
Georgie’s Girl ~ sleek black velvet Armani Prive, but the hair is flat.
Helen Mirren is one sizzlin’ senior in Badgley Mischka.
Rachel Weisz ~ I love a Swiss dot and bows but I’m not crazy about the 2-dresses-in-one look of this Louis Vuitton. But The Bonds are gorgeous so I’m giving them a pass.
“Fashion is life-enhancing and I think it’s a lovely, generous thing to do for other people.” ~Vivienne Westwood
