All in Fashion

I asked Stefano Tonchi, the editor in chief of W magazine, to talk about Edward: "Edward is one of the most talented image-makers in the world. He is also one of the funniest and most creative people I have ever met. His enthusiasm for fashion and magazines is contagious.  I call him “the sunshine in my life" because he can always see the positive side of things, the half full glass and never the half empty. That does not mean that he excepts mediocrity. He constantly strives for excellence but with culture and respect for others."

The best part about being well-known as a crazy dog lady is receiving emails from friends about gorgeous rescue animals - and their even hotter owners!  Photographer Gillian Laub sent me a pic of this amazing guy with his very handsome dog, and I absolutely had to meet them - I mean...barefoot and biking?  This story happens to be one of my favorites…

As NYFW 2014 comes to a close, I can’t help but look back and write about some of the things I learned outside of the catwalk. When it comes to fashion, trends are constantly evolving. What draws so many, like me, to the world of fashion is its infinite progression from season to season.  In a year, a designer can completely change their look, textile, and inspiration!

In Mrs. Sizzle's opinion the most fun time of the canine year just came and went: New York Fashion Week. But seeing as how the newest VIP was our very own Edie Sizzle, we think of this glamorous week more like New York Fashion Leash. Whether she’s sporting her new neon orange leash, matching booties, and comfy tribal sweater or color blocking with a cozy white sweater and black paw boots, or keeping it casual with a black cover up and neon booties for a pop of color, Edie was as trendy as our fave fashion A-listers. Without a doubt, our favorite look has got to be her unseasonably bright multi-color top with matching neon and light pink leashes. With as many looks as the leggy supermodels strutting down the runway, Edie took NYFL by storm. Mrs. Sizzle is a proud mama.

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!
