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!
