Sunglass Hut x Refinery29 Sunnies & Selfies #ShadesOfYou

Charlie and I had a blast this morning at the Refinery29 x Sunglass Hut “Sunnies & Selfies” Shades of You Pop-up event in Washington Square Park in NYC. Highly selfie-able sets and all the latest and greatest shades from Sunglass Hut are on display for guests to try on and pose with. georgia may jagger PM

Charlie made friends with our host, Georgia May Jagger who was sweet enough to put his story up on her Instagram page. And now he’s getting adoption inquiries in her comments — too bad he’s taken!
My little rescue has come a long way in 2 months from a kill shelter to this bombshell’s arms. He had such a hard time getting adopted because of his age but hopefully this inspires more people to adopt.

Dogs are a big commitment though, unlike sunglasses! Which if you’re in town today, the pop-up is open to the public from 3-7pm by the fountain in Washington Square Park!


Stop by and take selfies like this guy!


Sunglass Hut and Refinery29 are also hosting another Sunnies & Selfies event on June 24th in Herald Square Park from 10am – 4pm.

Happy summer everyone!

Lands’ End Canvas Rocks Their Spring/Summer 2012 Collection With The Wandas

Lands’ End Canvas knows how to throw and party and launch a collection in style! Last week they premiered and celebrated their Spring/Summer 2012 collection with a special performance by The Wandas. Hosted at the Highline Stages, they previewed the whole collection and transformed the space into a canvas (how clever!) and allowed guests to paint on the designated wall, while The Wandas took to the stage in the background.
