Hello-Hello. Happy-Happy Wednesday!
Please forgive our brevity, we are coping once again with Apple/iMac software issues. As in our first struggle, we are dealing with this.
If not easily remedied, the corner condo here at Princess InterGalactic HQ may need a sign like this:
That is all.
The next communities to have Sperry stores, Dallas and Kansas City. The company plans to continue its expansion into apparel and accessories. Below left, a women’s Polo Shirt; on the right the Full Sail bag.
The retail stores will have a nautical feel, as one would expect with this brand.
Some readers may recall that Sperry has collaborated on a line with Band of Outsiders. Above, a look at this spring’s group via GQ.
This partnership provides the perfect segue into our next newsbrief.
The Boy by Band of Outsiders show at Fashion Week.
Nothing really knocked our socks off, in part because we simply aren’t in a frame of mind to ponder anything remotely related to winter, other than the obvious reminders outside.
We adore the nautically inspired coat, but the rust plaid pants are eerily reminiscent of the late 1970’s. This is a frightening prospect.
We have a brief update to to our continuing coverage of Team USA’s Olympic uniforms; Polo Ralph Lauren exec and PR pooh-bah David Lauren went to Vancouver to see the uniforms firsthand.
He wrote a brief column for WWD on his trip and reaction to seeing his company’s designs in action:
“The opening ceremony on Friday was incredible. Watching Team USA take to the stage in their Ralph Lauren uniforms was a proud moment for us. And it was great to see the diverse fashion for each country’s team.”
One more update on Team USA opening ceremony uniforms: anyone looking for the oh-so-popular Fair Isle Knit Hat is likely to be disappointed by news that the company doesn’t plan to manufacture more.
We did spot one on eBay, as of this writing the bidding was approximately $350.
Finally, while probably not news to most readers (it did happen 18 hours ago) we thought it appropriate to update the Westminster story with the news that a Scottie won Best in Show last evening. Congratulations to Roundtown Mercedes Of Maryscot, or Sadie as she is more commonly called.
It is never easy coping with the media.
Did anyone else watching howl at this sight in one of the commercials running in the show?
These images are from the new advertising campaign Pedigree is using to promote a doggy dental product.
“Denture Your Dog” promotes Dentastix, allowing anyone to upload a photo of the family pet, and give them an amazing smile. Pet owners can select from denture styles dubbed “Bling Bling” to “Dogula”. We selected “The Biggin'” smile for Silly Tilly.

Until next time, may your day be filled with grins and giggles.
