Sit. Stay. Be Fabulous.

Thursday evening, fashion goes to the dogs at the fourth annual Canine Couture fashion show at Doris Duke’s Rough Point on Bellevue Avenue. With this year’s theme inspired by the mansion’s 2012 exhibit, Passport to the World: Doris Duke the International Traveler, the four-legged fashionistas will have global roots while their owners don chic looks from area boutiques.

I’m really excited to be a part of the show this year and to be wearing an extraordinary designer (hint: all her work is made in the USA), but make no bones about it: the bow wow beauties are the true stars of the show.  I’m also thrilled that a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Potter League for Animals. Also, learn about international dog breeds, see a dog training demo, and enter to win a Bellevue Avenue shopping spree—all while enjoying libations by The Cocktail Guru himself, Jonathan Pogash.

Doors open at 5pm, show begins at 6pm. Tickets are$10 per person, free for children 5 and younger (purchase all tickets at the door).  On-site parking is limited; carpooling and biking encouraged. Canine guests are welcome but must be on a leash. Rough Point is located at 680 Bellevue Avenue. Sponsored by Wag Nation, a Newport boutique for pets. For more information, email Liz@NewportRestoration.org or call (401) 846-4152.

Bellevue Boutiques Join Forces for Waterfront Fashion Show

This past week, Bellevue Avenue beauties Marcela Calvet and Sara Campbell joined forces for an intimate fashion show aboard megayacht SeaFair. Organizers Elizabeth Lewis and Barbara Estes, both of the Sandpipers ladies club, mingled amongst their friends throughout the dining room on the Art Newport yacht. Calvet, channeling her inner Audrey Hepburn in elbow-length black gloves and a black and cream wide-brim hat, opened the show with an introduction to her brand of luxury handbags. The duo debuted 12 looks including one worn by Karen Weinreb, the author of the best-selling novel The Summer Kitchen.

Calvet Paris 1937 boutique is located at 59 Bellevue Avenue, and the Sara Campbell boutique is located at 117 Bellevue Avenue; both in Newport.

A Trio of Trunk Shows Come to Town

In the fashion world, fall is on the brain, and two shops in Newport are hosting designers and reps (even an author) to showcase their fall collections and latest offerings. This Friday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Angela Moore will be hosting a Jack Rogers and Lilla P trunk show at her charming Bellevue Avenue boutique. The classic line from apparel and shoe designer Jack Rogers will include platforms, jellies (they’re back) and espadrilles, which you may have seen in In Style magazine. Classic style is also palpable in the designs of Lilla P, with pieces direct from the designer’s Meatpacking district design studio in NYC. The brand has been praised for their modern take on the iconic cotton tee shirt, including the Origami shirt that ties 10 ways as seen on Good Morning America. The shop is also hosting a book signing featuring Karen Weinreb, the author of the book The Summer Kitchen, who has planted roots in Newport. Marie Claire called her most recent release is “an irresistible beach read!” And there’s plenty of summer left to sink your toes in the sand and unwind with a good read. You may recall Weinreb’s appearance on Oprah in January, where she shared her story of her husband’s secret life. Champagne and treats, served during show hours, promise to sweeten the experience.

Down on Lower Thames, hot young designer Elise Fargnoli brings her Francesca Joy line of stunning, hand-painted totes, wristlets, chemises and more to Wish on Friday and Saturday, 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The St. Michael’s Country Day School grad and Providence native has made a splash on the Palm Beach shopping scene and brings her artistic flair to her beloved City-by-the-Sea for two days of fashionable fun.



Angela Moore, 190 Bellevue Avenue, Newport, (401) 619-1900

Wish, 664 Thames Street, Newport, (401) 848-0202

Happy shopping!
