Nick Verreos and FIDM San Diego "3 Days of Fashion 2013" attendee--FIDM San Diego

Last week, I had the pleasure of driving to San Diego with my NV Nick Verreos and NIKOLAKI design/business and life partner David Paul, as well as our little pupster, Benny--to attend the final day of the last Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM 3 Days of Fashion 2013 at the FIDM San Diego campus. It's always a treat to come to San Diego since David's family lives there and therefore, it is a nice added bonus to see them...

I have already been to FIDM Orange County, San Francisco and Los Angeles, so this was the last stop on my "Nick FIDM 3 Days of Fashion Summer Tour". As part of my "FIDM 3 Days of Fashion" appearance, I was able to bring some of my NV Nick Verreos and NIKOLAKI dresses/gowns. We checked in the night before at my favorite San Diego hotel, the Solamar Hotel Kimpton San Diego hotel (they allow dogs!)...

Welcome Wine and Chocolates: The Solamar Hotel Kimpton San Diego had a lovely bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon and chocolates in my room as a lovely "Welcome Back Nick".

David and I went to meet up with David's mom, Conchita, his sisters Elise and Marisa and his beautiful nieces Emilie and Samantha. It was an amazing sight to see David's mom as well as his sisters all wearing "NV Nick Verreos" dresses (they bought them all online!). After the photo op, we all dined at Roseville Cozinha. Check out our starter of Oysters on a Half Shell:

Then, it was time for me to show some of my NV Nick Verreos and NIKOLAKI dresses on model Amanda Fields...

Benny Oopsie: Finally--after my appearance, David, Benny and I checked out of our Solamar Hotel and noticed that they hadn't "welcomed" our little Benny when we checked in the day before (left photo above). I tweeted this and well, the Hotel Solamar Kimpton peeps fixed that very quickly, as see on the photo on the right :) (the Valet guys' face says it all...in other words "I'm sorry!"). Don't worry Solamar Hotel Kimpton San Diego, Benny still "Woof-Woof" luvs you:

Bye San Diego! 'Till next time!
