Last week my super fashionable friend Monica celebrated her birthday in style. I loved her sequin top, hot leather pants, and incred Miu Miu sparkly booties. Happy birthday Mon!

wildlife works at hangr 16

Hangr 16 recently started carrying Wildlife Works, a sustainable, carbon neutral fashion line that supports the preservation of a wildlife reserve in Kenya. They threw a great party a couple of weeks ago to celebrate the launch. Hangr 16 will be carrying the line through the end of December so head over their soon--the tees and scarves would make great gifts for men and women.
