Retail Therapy: Dogs & Denim at Saks Fifth Avenue

It's been a ruff few weeks, so we took a bit of a blogging hiatus recently, but there's nothing like a little retail therapy to get the tail wagging again. 

The Uppity Puppy is truly honored to be joining the Dogs & Denim Fall Fashion Show this week at Saks Fifth Avenue to benefit Hand In Paw, the Birmingham-based animal-assisted therapy organization. Saks Birmingham is generously hosting a red carpet fall fashion event on Thursday, August 14 from 5:30-7:30, and it's sure to have everyone barking. Cocktails, treats, and raffle prizes will abound, while guests will get a preview of the chicest autumn attire for fashion hounds of all kinds. The Saks contemporary collection will be on display, along with canine couture collars from Jazzy J Designs. Ticket donations are $10 at the door, and the proceeds will help Hand In Paw continue to provide love and support for those with physical and emotional needs.

Lily and I will be walking the runway for the very first time on Thursday, and at our fitting this weekend, we got a sneak peek of Saks' fab fall collection. We both felt like pampered pooches as our talented and hospitable stylist, Ernest Robles, let us play with new pieces from Burberry, Tory Burch, Joie, Furla, and more. Ernest patiently indulged our fashion instincts: Lily had a few styling ideas of her own, which all involved fur, while I was drooling over leather leggings and suede YSL pumps. A little bit of retail therapy with Ernest was just what these two fashion hounds needed to get pumped up for our red-carpet runway debut!

We are thrilled to support the work of Hand In Paw through the generosity of Saks Fifth Avenue Birmingham, and we invite all of our friends (both two and four-legged alike!) to join us on Thursday for the Dogs & Denim Fall Fashion Show!
