Petey attends the CFDA awards

Well, we may currently be in South Carolina, but last night, Petey and I had a small cameo at the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) awards ceremony at Lincoln Center. We are big fans (yes I'm including Petey as well as he is definitely a fashion hound) of the blogs of Scott Schulman --The Sartorialist-- and Garance Dore --garancedore.com) and when they announced they'd be receiving the Media Award this year, they asked their loyal readers to send in video clips saying why they liked their blogs. So I submitted one with Petey on my lap.* * I have met both Scott and Garance several times--often enough that Garance recognizes me and we'll casually chat. Usually I've run into her shooting in the West Village and Petey will often yelp a bit. She told me to come up with a distinctive name that she'll recognize when I leave a comment, so I've become "Jane with the noisy terrier." so Petey had to be included in my video. Anyhow they received literally thousands of homemade videos from around the world for this presentation and guess what? Ours was one of about a dozen chosen for the final cut! And you can see it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3_foAb2p4E&feature=youtube_gdata_player Look for us about 1:09 minutes in! Then go check out Scott and Garance's blogs!
