After spending the weekend in Palm Beach, I have a new favorite animal- a poodle. So many shops we went in had fabulous vintage poodle statues standing guard by the door. Or in a jewelry display case, adorned with jeweled necklaces. I don't know that I would necessarily want a high maintenance poodle as a pet (although I hear they are very smart), but there is something indescribably chic and elegant about poodles. This poodle greeted visitors at the chic Palm Beach store Sequin, where we bought a boatload of (affordable) bangles and jewelry!

Another Palm Beach poodle (and wow what a view!)
The combo of fur and cigarettes are a political correctness nightmare, but this woman exudes style and confidence.
Who can forget Joan Collins and her pet poodle that she dyed pink?!
Nanette Lepore's poodle fits in perfectly in her chic Hollywood Regency dressing room.
No one captures Palm Beach style quite as well as Jonathan Adler. How about this pair of hot pink lifesize poodles in his Barbie Malibu Dreamhouse?
To add a touch of Hollywood Regency style to your home with poodles, this pair of marble poodle bookends (made in Italy) is amazing.
And I always LOVE the vintage French poodle trays.
I picked up two vintage French poodle trays at Decatur Estates that I have hanging in my living room. If you like them, there is a set on etsy here, for an amazing price!
And finally, one of my favorite Palm Beach purchases... MoS Washington and I were on the way home and ran by the Goodwill in Delray (where she found her fabulous bench). Right when we walked into the Boutique section, I spotted this pair of vintage poodles. I think they will be *perfect* for baby GIRL's nursery!
