Stella McCartney Summer 2013 Campaign with Natalie Vodianova

2013 campaign photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott featuring Natalia Vodianova.

How gorgeous is the summer 2013 ad campaign from Stella McCartney?  The campaign features Russian model Natalia Vodianova and was photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.  The images are graphic, bold, and highlight the exquisite (and juicy) colors of the collection.  The photos are sporty, bright, and the python accessories are certainly swoon-worthy.  We can’t wait to shop these pieces at our Stella McCartney boutique.

FoundDog Day Success at Highland Park Village

Jeffrey Doman with Chowder

This past Saturday, Highland Park Village was honored to host FoundDog Day with Angie’s Friends and White Rock Dog Rescue.  We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful Saturday. Thirty puppies made a visit to Highland Park Village over the weekend – ready to meet their new families.  Because of this event, nearly 20 dogs have found new homes!

Our hearts were warmed when Jeffrey Doman took home a Brindle puppy he named Chowder for his little boy.  It was the first adoption of the day. Next, we saw a family playing with Oliver – an adorable Labrador mix.  They submitted an application for him right away.  Anita took home a sweet Terrier mix, Henry, and he was wagging his tail when he found out he had found a new mom.

Thank you to everyone who came out this past weekend to celebrate the first FoundDog Day with us at Highland Park Village.  We can’t thank you enough for your support .  And, we are so happy for all of the families who are welcoming a new furry friend into their homes.

Larry is still looking for a loving home and could use your help.  Do you know a family that might be able to care for him?  He’s a very sweet dog.


Anita with her new friend- Henry!

Oliver with his new family!

A January Afternoon At Highland Park Village

This week, we had an afternoon that was more than warm enough for Rachel to sport a winter white tunic and a leather jacket at Highland Park Village.  Looking for fun ways to wear resort around town, she paired the Sail to Sable corduroy tunic with a navy leather Rag & Bone jacket, her favorite Tory Burch flats, Jimmy Choo sunglasses, and a small Pilot bag from Rag & Bone resort 2013 for a look that was quite comfortable - yet pulled together. “It’s the perfect outfit for some afternoon shopping at Highland Park Village or grabbing a quick happy hour with friends,” said Rachel, “And, I love that the leather jacket has removable sleeves.”
