My designing friend Zang Toi was honored by the American Cancer Society last week for being the #1 fundraiser for Livestrong, the Lance Armstrong Foundation. In addition to holding fundraising events and sales, Zang rode in the Livestrong Challenge. That’s dedication!
Naturally, I wore one of my many Zang Toi dresses to the event. This one is navy velvet. And backless.
The New York Times ran a photo from the event in its Sunday Styles section.

I think it’s very thoughtful of Christian to design a dress that will save a bitch from getting lost in NYC. This would be perfect for gorgeous blogger Mahalo Jen, who has expressed concerns about using mass transit. Next, Christian needs to design a dress with cab fare pinned to it. That’s what I need.
Even without a cab-fare dress, I’m having a great day. My Victoria Buckle Ring is on Fashion Week Daily’s Obsessions page. Thank you, Fashion Week Daily! As a bonus, I made the Blogger Spotlight in the Independent Fashion Bloggers weekly newsletter. My mom is so proud! Seriously, she emailed me to say she was proud. In case you don’t get the newsletter (if you’re a fashion blogger, sign up!), here is my spotlight, complete with Gigi the dog and her giant tongue.
This week’s Blogger Spotlight goes to the gorgeous Wendy of Wendy Brandes Jewelry! There are a lot of jewelry blogs out there, but none even come close to the hilarity and sass of Wendy Brandes. I remember when she just started her blog, as she’s an independent designer, and when Britney Spears stole her ring, so she had to get the word out. A year and a half later it’s one of the best and most fun blogs on the internet. Wendy’s an absolute star.
Kisses to the gorgeous bloggers who nominated me — don’t be surprised if my mom sends y’all thank-you notes.
