No, we didn’t adopt a hairless. WE WENT TO A CAT SHOW. More images on Instagram.

Locals! I’m gonna try to make it to this event myself, if I can: “Measured is a gallery show that offers a sneak peek into a designer’s creative process, from the first sketches to the final stitches.

But who can complain when wearing a simple dress and ankle boots in September doesn’t make you shiver? I’ll be up to my eyeballs in snow soon enough! READ MORE
