Happy Leap Day and why not enjoy the extra day with men that strutted their looks on red carpets and after parties at the Oscars! Uggie the dog who has been on a number of shows for his acting in The Artist, attended The Weinstein Company after party with his fabulous bowtie! His costar, Jean Dujardin looks dashing as he's waiting for a kiss from his wife, Alexandra Lamy. Who could forget the footage that we saw of Sean Diddy getting lint rolled for a number of minutes before he was ready to hit the famed carpet? Above he is pictures above with the producers of Undefeated - to his left Dan Lindsay and to the right, TJ Martin. I love that George Clooney, who starred in the Ides of March, chats up the press in his suave style for a few moments. Jonah Hill, nominated for Moneyball, brought his mom as a date and thought that he looked so cute when he was interviewed during E!'s red carpet show. His costar, Brad Pitt also looked amazing when he hit the red carpet.
This weekend we had fab weather but when I think of the fall, I think about beginning to add on layers - especially those you put on in case of inclimate weather. Growing up, when I visited my grandparents in Jersey, we also put items away in the Mud Room. This room was intended for rainy gear or umbrellas; however, we also used it for much of our outerwear. So in thinking of the Mud Room I instantly thought about these super cute Ashdale slip on shoes from UGG Australia that protect your feet from being wet but allow you be without your boots. I would wear this with jeans or other items and only when the rain wasn't torrential. Thinking of these fab hues, I thought about that cabinesque masculine since of hues and how this can pop up throughout your living space from red, blue, green and tan.
To start, your living space needs that leather chair from Ethan Allen and this rich tan hue is perfect as it's unisex in tone and begs to be dressed with this fab throw from Anthropologie. Lean back in the chair for the ultimate cozy factor by popping in a fun blue tone with this pillow. When you think about relaxing and braving the elements, who doesn't want a pop of red color for your fave mugs from Sur La Table and this vegetable bowl is perfect for snacking at Cooking.com! Keep things close and uncluttered with these spice boxes from William's Sonoma.
Finally, that great Mud Room/Ralph Lauren feel to this entire space can only be upped by actually dressing your dog in this Big Pony Dog Polo which is super cute and cozy!
So it seems like my sister's dog, Jimmy Choo, gets cuter everyday and apparently runs through toys and bags like none other! This is all good stuff to know so that I can start stocking up now for when I get a Yorkie of my own! One of the things she always talks about is how he REALLY loves his toys (thus always buying new ones) and how a carrier is absolutely essential and he grows out of them too. I like to think that a carrier is to a puppy what shoes are to us. When we were growing up we had to keep buying new ones since we kept growing out of them and now we buy new ones for all our moods and just to fit our lifestyle in general! So if we go shopping for our needs, then our puppies have to be outfitted as well without any second thoughts! I am so glad that there are others that share this belief as well and fortunately there is a sample sale coming up for your pooch!
The New York Dog Sample Sale is full of goodies! You can buy one carrier and get one half off, there are cute sweaters starting at $10, beds starting at $10 (Jimmy Choo may need to get one of those soon too) and raincoats starting at $15 as well! You'll find many other goodies and with a whole week ahead, you're bound to fins great items that you can't imagine why you wouldn't have! In addition, what a great way to bond with others while you get some shopping done and finding a great way to beat the heat as well. Make sure you make some room in your closet because you're going on a puppy spree! I love that New York Dog is a fashionable line that's carried in so many boutiques and now you can get a great sale for your pup or for a pup's upcoming birthday.
