ADWOA ABOAH CAN PAT HER DOG AND SPEAK HER MIND AT THE SAME TIME

I have known this beauty since she was a wee one running up and down the beach in Tulum playing with her sister Kesewa and my daughter Sophie - spirited and carefree.  Life has certainly thrown this girl a few curveballs but it is with grace and determination that she emerged from a spell and has come through like a shiny golden star.  Founder of GURLS Talk, feminist crusader, actress, model and friend to many, Adwoa Aboah shares with us a few tidbits about her life and her dog, of course. Thank you to my sweet friend Tierney Gearon for these delicious pics.

It's no surprise that fashion designer Rachel Antonoff's dog does clothes so well but prefers being naked


This week we visit the apartment of Rachel Antonoff the super duper inspired fashion designer and cutie extraordinaire.  Although Mrs. Sizzle got lost in the rain she was relieved to get to the cozy apartment with the barking dog, none other than Lafitte Antonoff.  Amy Lombard was on hand to photograph and there to help us look stylish was the brilliant DOG & CO.!  I had to ask Rachel many questions about this handsome scruffy dude.

Mrs sizzle visits FAYE and stella Mcleod with photographer landon nordeman

I originally met Faye McLeod poolside at a friend’s house a few summers ago, fabulous but dog-less.  It wasn’t until recently that I discovered she had a dog, but not any dog, surely the best accessorized dog on the planet.  And it’s no small wonder that Stella, the mini Havapoo, is as such for her Mom is the visual image director of Louis Vuitton and travels the globe for her job.  During Faye’s inspired travels, she hits up the chicest dog spots around the world, so Mrs. Sizzle had to get the scoop on where the best products are found.  I spent a rainy afternoon with Faye and Landon Nordeman, fashion photographer, with Stella chasing avocados and other fuzzy wonders.

BILL MULLEN AND TODD NOAKER'S MENAGERIE PHOTOGRAPHED BY MARCUS MAM.

We begin a series of stylist's portraits with their animals that is a collaboration between the photographer Marcus Mam and Mrs. Sizzle. Bill Mullen and his partner, Todd Noaker, love animals. I do not need to talk about the fact that Bill is a force of nature in fashion as we are here to talk about his animals.  Tinkerbell LeStrange is a Siamese cat, a Seal Point to be exact.  Vampiro LaVey, although a rescue, is descended from Transylvanian royalty and he says his breed is Black Cat.  Morticia is a Greater Vasa Parrot and Carmen is a Mexican Spiny Tailed Iguana. Lastly, Black Bart and Vesuvio are Siamese Fighting Fish. Follow their adventures here @Tarpie11 and @BillMullenInc.

LONDON CALLING, Elle meets Winny and the rest is fashion history

My dear friend Colleen Quill aka Coco and her dog Elle, an oftentimes Mrs. Sizzle model, packed up and headed to London last year.  As one often does in looking for new local friends, Coco turned to Instagram to find other like minded paw friendly people.  As she tells it, "We moved to London in May. Shortly afterwards, Elle connected with Winny on Instagram, being local and so very British, we were besotted. The first thing we asked "is he named for Winston Churchill?" The answer being "yes," a royal friendship began in the Kensington Palace Gardens. Bodhi is the two-year-old English bulldog, who belongs to my friend Seb Weller I met while we were both working at Sony Music."

IT'S EASIER WHEN YOU THINK PRIMARY

Sometimes good things do come in three’s. We here at Mrs. Sizzle are giving an ode to the original color triad that started it all: red, yellow, and blue-the primary colors. With so many primary choices, we’ve rounded up some gifts that puppy will love, and don’t worry, some goodies for you as well. Bonus points for matching!

Patricia Field - Fashion icon, lover of life, stylist to the infamous television show Sex in the City and the owner of the extraordinary PATRICIA FIELD boutique which will be closing its doors in a few months.  When I learned the store was to be sold, I was insistent that Amy Lombard join me to go shoot the two house dogs and get some insight into their lives with the magnanimous Patrica Field. Surprisingly for being Pat's kids, they are so NOT fashion hounds so let's hear why!

ridiculously good looking dogs and their people

Here at Mrs. Sizzle, we pride ourselves in being the “go to” fashion spot for discerning pet owners.  With Fall in full tilt and dogs needing an extra bit of cozy, we asked some of the most gorgeous dogs we know to model with their owners on the streets of NYC.  While we were shooting this dog show, we asked their parents: “What’s the one thing you love most about your dog?”.

These pictures make me so happy! What’s not to love about humans and hounds, the brainchild of Melinda Montney of DOG & CO. and her partner and photographer, Robert Stoetzel.  Captured on the street, these images speak to the amazing relationship between people and their pets. I don’t know about you, but each one of these images makes me smile! So very #MrsSizzle!

Peruvian Connection is warming up these beautiful dogs from Humane Society of NY

I had not yet been to the Humane Society of New York until today and it is with great joy that I can report I finally met my friend Sandra DeFeo who Richard Phibbs had introduced me to! Today I was there with the great Tara Sgroi to photograph some gorgeous dogs who are in need of furever homes.  The most fun thing is they are wearing Peruvian Connection sweaters that CEO and Founder, Annie Hurlbut, dreamed up that use the remnants of the alpaca garments that are knit for Peruvian Connection.Tomorrow these sweaters will be for sale with 100% of the proceeds benefitting the Humane Society of New York

ISAAC MIZRAHI LOVES ONLY HANDSOME DOGS - HANDSOME RESCUE DOGS THAT IS. MRS. SIZZLE AND WILLIAM ABRANOWICZ WENT TO HAVE A PLAYDATE WITH THEM

I have known this man for decades - not close like “besties” but rather kindred spirits of sorts. I always knew Isaac was a dog person, but when I learned that the two dogs he owns and loves were rescues, I was relentless.  I mean RELENTLESS.  So here we go, nothing more to say.  Watch the brilliant video directed by William Abranowicz and be delighted by the man who so often delights with humor and his wit.  Ladies and Gents, Isaac Mizrahi.
