The Kate & Rocky Show

In my first blog post, I mentioned Santina‘s role in encouraging me to start a blog. But I didn’t mention her suggestion that I name my blog “The Kate & Rocky Show”. See, Santina is a wee bit in love with Rocky (although really, who isn’t?). And I think all she really wanted was to see more of Rocky on the web.

Luckily, Rocky is a natural when it comes to modeling. And since he comes with me to work, he’s available for photo shoots during the day. :)

So I didn’t name my blog “The Kate & Rocky Show”, but it kinda is.

This dress, by the way, is one of my fave work dresses. I actually got it at a thrift store – I say this with surprise because I find thrift stores overwhelming & am usually not the most talented at finding treasures there.

It’s a silk Lord & Taylor dress from the 1980s. It’s so comfortable to wear and drapes beautifully!

Wait, did Rocky stick out his tongue? The nerve!

And to go with the dress (and Rocky!), I added a few bracelets. The black & white ones are bangles I picked up in Senegal a few years ago, and the rhinestone one is vintage. My husband gave me the silver cuff several years ago and it’s definitely one of my go-to pieces.

Few color combinations are more classic than black and white.

Speaking of going with Rocky, I had to take a couple of pics of him & Santina together because they just matched so well. :)

So basically, Rocky once again proved that he’s really the star of the show!

    I’d like to request Rocky’s paw-tograph, so I can prove that I knew him before his days as a (what is sure to be soon) famous dog model.

    And, Kate, you look great! I like your bracelet arrangement. Layered accessorizing is something I’m trying to get better at.


    • You know, that could be arranged! I actually helped Jade make a pawtograph of Winston for Susan’s birthday, so I’m totally a pro at that now. ;)

      And thanks! I’m actually somewhat new at layered accessorizing (I didn’t even know that’s what it’s called), and having fun with it.


  2. It’s true – I love Rocky! No shame in my game! I adore The Kate & Rocky Show. Honestly, one of my favorite parts of the day is when you and Rocky come strolling in. I look forward to seeing what you’re wearing…and saying “good morning” to Rocky. :)

    This dress looks like the kind of thing I’d want to wear for days – comfortable and chic. I love the color combination and print.


Yay! Your comments make my day! :)
