    Baby B

    Meet Brinkley, a beautiful dog to whom I was introduced today while volunteering at a Texas Humane Legislation Network event for the Humane Society.  Brinkley was rescued from her shelter’s gas chamber just in time, and is the sweetest baby ever.  In case anyone is looking at anything besides gorgeous Brinkley (I don’t blame you if you aren’t):  you can get the houndstooth coat shown here for $158.

    Worship-Worthy

    I’ve decided that I must have this vegan suede and faux fur coat by Sanctus.  I love the dramatic, borderline-gothic appeal of the “blood red” oversized hood.  I thought this was very cool:  the designer, Lucinda Sinclair, makes each piece by hand in her studio in North London.  There are only 50 of each design produced (each garment is labeled 1-50), so not to worry about any accidental “twinning.”  Her creations are inspired by religious symbolism.   Order yours here.

    Kicked Back with Sydney

    Après date nightcap, wearing my favorite vegan leather Sydney Brown booties.  Made in LA, the entire pared-down but funky line is made with recycled, eco-friendly materials.  I am wearing the platform boot in plum, $200.  Side note:  I love the idiosyncrasies in the wood, and the fact that each pair is handmade and one-of-a-kind.

    On The Catwalk

    Anyone else a Project Runway addict??  Last night I was lucky enough to have a front row view of creations from very talented designers of seasons past.   The runway show/ party is called FashionXDallas, and it was so much fun spending time with one of my best girls, Brittany (who, incidentally, owns Milk & Honey:  a boutique full of cute, affordable, eco-friendly pieces), and meeting some of the designers. Auf Wiedersehen.

    My look :

    Badgley Mischka blazer cape, available here

    Black faux leather bell bottoms, available here

    Necklace and faux snakeskin clutch are from Brit’s store, which you can browse at MilkandHoneyBoutique.com.

    Chic Boutique

    I absolutely adore the Dallas store Milk & Honey!  Owned by one of my very dear friends who believes that you shouldn’t have to pay an arm and a leg to look fantastic, the store features clothing that often has a boho Cali vibe at a very reasonable price point… And, always, lots of cute cruelty-free options!  Today’s look, all available here:  “Hollywood” faux fur jacket in black, $82, and “Flare To My Boho bellbottoms, $58.

    Baby, it’s cold outside!

    …Luckily I’m keeping warm in my favorite vegan leather moto jacket from Free People (available here), boyfriend cargo pants by Current/Elliot, and the “Remix” boot from NastyGal.com which features red laces, a 4″ heel, and a padded faux leather ankle. These boots are super comfortable, great for fall/winter, versatile (I’ve also worn them with a little black dress), and affordable at only $88, available here. Woop woop!
