Hound of the Week: Meet Nina!

Meet Nina! Nina is a red brindle, red nose pit bull who is around 4 years old. Nina was turned into a local high kill shelter when her owner learned that she was expecting a child - the sad part is, Nina was also expecting, and was quickly put on their euthanasia list. We pulled her on her last day alive, and she is currently in foster care.

Due to her abusive past (she was kicked repeatedly, and thus has sensitivity issues around feet), she will need a patient, loving person who is willing to work with her. She is the perfect age - still active, but no longer a hyperactive puppy. She is excellent with cats, and good with most other dogs. She would prefer to be adopted with her best friend, a female pit bull named Peeps, but it is not required. If you are looking for a gorgeous love bug, please email savecats(a) to meet Nina!

What to wear to a charity fashion show!

Clothes Hound has a BIG charity fashion show coming up this weekend called "Couture for a Cause"!
This is a couture fashion show where local designers partner up with local non profits and design two outfits inspired by the non profit.  These designers are super talented and have amazing looks!

Our customer and model, Winter, in one of last year's winner designs by designer Sandy Chen
This year Clothes Hound is not only a sponsor of the event but our owner Bryce Batts is an esteemed Judge!
Not to mention our local celebrity friend Maggie Alexander from NBC-17 is the Emcee!
It's going to be an amazing night so please join us!
Get your tickets TODAY because tomorrow (which is the day of the show)
 they will be $25.00 instead of $20.00.
But now the question is....What does one WEAR to this type of event?
The fashion show is pretty formal and most likely everyone will be in cocktail attire.  So we put together the exact outfit that our team member, Mary, will be wearing. 
 She is also working behind the scenes for the show, so she wanted something comfortable yet classy while shes running around before, during and after the show.
Couture for a Cause

So here's what she came up with...

  Jewelry from Forever 21, including multiple stacked chain and jeweled bracelets,

A Black long sheer sleeve dress by Freeway from Clothes Hound

  Steve Madden Whistle black wedges

      Now all she needs is a killer gold or jeweled clutch ! Any suggestions?

Hope to see you at the Show tomorrow!

Melissa Gorga's Red Dress from the Real Housewives Reunion!

If you tuned into the controversial RHONJ reunion special you checked out the wives in their individual show stopping cocktail dresses! 

Teresa in a long, royal blue with a too much to handle (just like her personality) rhinestone neck detail, Caroline was classic in a black side shoulder, Kathy choose an emerald green number but our favorite was the surprizingly not-so-flashy, red, curve hugging, taylored number that Melissa wore!

Even though at one point Teresa called her "The Devil" because she was wearing red,
Teresa also wore this exact dress by Halo in a royal blue earlier in the season.

But you can get our shorter, sexier version for only $62.00

Thats' a savings of almost $300.00!
