December, 2010:

Carrabba Haus

I do so miss my beloved dogs Rupert and Nigel – in fact I’m still reeling from the loss. I’m not quite ready to bring new dogs into my life right now, but a good dose of puppy love goes a long way. So when my friend and brilliant photographer Matt Dean recently asked me if I wanted to spend some time with a little Rottweiler, I was more than pleased to meet this lovely animal.

As you know, I’m a huge supporter of animal rescue, but I’m also happy to meet responsible and committed breeders with a life long passion. Carrabba Haus is one such breeder. They’ve received world wide recognition — even taking V1 prizes in Germany — for their fine Rottweilers. As you can see in our Matthew Dean photo today, I find myself quite upstaged by a handsome Carrabba Haus Rottie named Barry.

I’m sporting a wool hounds tooth tweed top coat, brown wool tweed motorcycle pants and a python belt with silver double horse head buckle all by Gucci, Tom Ford brown end on end cotton shirt with French cuffs and contrast white collar, vintage moon stone cuff links, brown cotton corduroy down vest by Mackintosh, striped wool scarf by Paul Smith, Lanvin high top sneakers in greens and black, Sermoneta dark green leather gloves and my fragrance is Creed Bois du Portugal and the splendid little Barry by my side.

The Holiday Celebration WIJW Paper Dolls!

The end of the calender year does give one cause to reflect and we’re happy to say this past year has been beyond rich with blessings. We’ve had so much fun sharing adventures and thoughts with our WIJW readership and I’m simply brim full of gratitude for all of the support, interest, feedback, and fantastic comments!

As a holiday celebration thank you, we’ve turned once again to the very talented Scott McBee to create this spectacular 2nd edition of paper dolls – as you can see our recent trip to Germany inspired us to create a Tyrolean/Alpine fantasy holiday wardrobe!

Download the PDF, print it on sturdy stock, and have a blast playing dress up. Enjoy!

It might interest you to know that the overwhelming response to McBee’s first edition of WIJW paper dolls has him taking bespoke paper doll commissions – something perhaps for the discerning fashionista in your life?!

We’re exited about the upcoming year and we’ll be sure to continue in our efforts to bring you a bigger and better WIJW 2011.

Happy Holidays,
Love, Light, and Best Wishes,
