Fur Baby Fashion

March 04, 2019

My favorite and absolute BEST accessory is my little fur baby, Teddy the Bear. He's a Toy Poodle, looks like a fluffy bear and loves fashion. His closet is overflowing, and of course matches his mommy's fashion style. Teddy just turned two - here's a look back on his doggy fashion..


Teddy's first trip to New York City. My little guy survived the two days of rain his blue fabdog packway raincoat. We spent most of the time in our hotel room watching Pets!


Yes, there was a time when Teddy was a doggy nudist! I never intended to be a dog mom that dresses her dog. I thought it was ridiculous! BUT, then the winter weather came and he was cold. So began the winter wardrobe..


Teddy loves wearing clothes. I can hold up options and he will choose his favorite. Hoodies are a must and we always match. Teddy is wearing an American Apparel dog hoodie and blue Puppia sports harness.


Surprisingly, Teddy is willing and happy to wear hats! This is my Fenty X Puma trapper's hat. He loves anything furry and fluffy (like mommy). Admittedly, it was hard to snap the perfect photo, while he was trying to eat the hat. 


Baby bear in a Gucci tote! Teddy and I are loving the buffalo check trend. I have a bag, he has a vest and Daddy has a hat! We look ridiculous walking down the street in matching outfits! 

Animal lovers - don't be upset that he's in a tote! Teddy is a dog model and loved every moment of this photo shoot.


Enter the boots. I read that you should condition your dog to boots at an early age, so when Teddy was a baby, he often wore socks at home. When it came time to put boots on, he didn't make a fuss. Teddy makes wearing doggy boots look easy AND he has four pairs! 

Of course, Teddy has too many winter vests. Green, blue, camo.. He's well equipped for the cold weather. Dog parents - please protect your dogs from the cold and salt. I see so many dogs with no coat and no protection on their paws (the parents are bundled up though).


T-shirts are a must! Teddy has a HUGE selection of t-shirts in many colors, with cute sayings. This green and camo t-shirt says BOSS (fitting). We've almost worn this one out. 


Teddy's birthday t-shirt says BRUNCH BACON BOOZE. Of course he had bacon on his b-day, but NO BOOZE! Teddy had the best birthday a two year old bear can ask for. He wore his tuxedo bow tie and cuffs all day. The hat was bait of a struggle - it makes a crinkle sound and he loves playing with it. 

That was my fashion tribute to Teddy the Bear. I didn't think I would become one of those dog parents, BUT I'm happy I did. My little bear never leaves the house without a careful curated outfit!

Fairy Bomb & Body Lava

September 10, 2018

The Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Fairy Bomb is an oversized glittering puff, filled with rose gold shimmer. The soft pom pom is packed with 3D shimmer for a luxurious illuminating experience. This reminds me of when I was young and 'older' women would apply powder with super-soft poufs. It's retro and I like it. 


The pom pom is really soft and a pretty peach color. You have to hit the Fairy Bomb against your skin many times to initially bring out the hyper-reflective glitter, but once you bring it to the surface, you can apply the luminizer with ease. AND you will be sparkly! The scent is lovely - a vanilla-coconut scent (two of my favorites). The Fairy Bomb may be a little overpriced, but the concept is fun. You may find that during application you get glitter everywhere (I even got it on my Toy Poodle), but there's always a downside to every body shimmer product.


The Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Body Lava sold out shortly after the release date. Yeah, I bought it! Don't be jealous - it's not amazing! I had high hopes for this stuff and I love Fenty Beauty by Rihanna products, but this one fell short of my expectations.


Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Body Lava definitely adds shimmer, but it's kinda oily and the scent is SUPER-STRONG! I love a little glitter along my legs and arms, but I'm worried this stuff will rub onto my clothes. AND I cant take the scent - It's pretty, but overwhelming. I kinda feel bad for all those Fenty Beauty by Rihanna fans waiting to purchase this sold out product, while I have a full bottle going to waste. I apologize for the less than desired review, but scent is everything and while this product may illuminate the body in the best way - your'e gonna stink something fierce!


I gotta mention the product names - Fairy Bomb and Body Lava. Maybe I'm just sensitive, but bomb and lava seem a little controversial. Yeah, they're catchy names, but I'm sure the Fenty Beauty by Rihanna team could've come up with something little less terrifying. Albeit, the Fairy Bomb does create a film of glitter all over the floor and on anything within two feet (I'd consider that destruction), while the Body Lava looks like lava and the long-lasting, overwhelming scent would definitely make me run from anyone wearing it!

I'm Coveting..

July 17, 2018
I'm a little obsessed with Gucci these days. I can't afford any of it, BUT a girl can dream.. This Gucci oversized cotton t-shirt is perfect (available at Mytheresa). There is an adorable fawn print on the front and a floral print with a lady bug on the back. The green Gucci lettering is a nice contrast from the pink. This oversized t-shirt would look great with blue jeans and strappy, high-heel sandals. 

Gucci's leaf-brocade lace bomber jacket (available in major department stores and Farfetch) is feminine and sporty. The striped hem, cuffs, baseball collar and chest patch say "I'm a cool girl" and the delicate lace is pretty and refined. Along side the Gucci lettering, the floral, embroidered appliqué chest patch is consistent with the collection. I like the red piping along the shoulder line and green piping down the zipper. The green, white and red stripes and red and green piping represent the Italian flag . There's a lot of detail in this design - LOVE! There are matching flower-lace jogging pants with red and green piping and striped cuffs - SO Erika Girardi.

I'm coveting these Dolce & Gabbana Amore flared jeans (available at Farfetch). I haven't worn flares in years, but love that the trend may be on the way back in. The three shades of blue denim and denim patches with red stitching give these jeans a fun, loving, 70's vibe. 

I was just in Nashville and had an amazing time. I had hoped to get cowboy boots, but didn't get a chance to go shopping - probably for the best! When I saw these Fendi pink crocodile-embossed ankle boots (available at Fendi), I was happy that I missed out on the cowboy boots in Nashville. This cowboy bootie design is gorgeous. I'm obsessed with pale pink shades and this color is perfect. The low boot leg is nice, cause I'm short and the heel is the perfect height. I NEED THESE BOOTS..

I just learned that Gucci has a décor collection and I want everything! The collection is fun, glamorous and way outta my budget. There's candles, dishes, folding tables, gorgeous chairs, panel screens and cushions. I have a Toy Poodle named Teddy Bear, so of course I'm coveting this Gucci embroidered needlepoint teddy bear cushion (available at Gucci) - SO CUTE! The misspelt 'Guccy' lettering references hashtags on social media. AND it's pink (well, on one side). This Gucci décor collection is inspiring me.

Yup, another Gucci design on my 'must-have' list. This Gucci Florentia tote bag (available at Farfetch) is perfect for fall/winter travels. The red and black gingham pattern reminds me of the classic hunters flannel shirt. This is labeled a mens tote, but anyone can don this oversized, wool bag. Like many designs in this collection, there's a floral appliqué. The Florentia L'orta Di Giove slogan references Florence and part of the Boboli Gardens of Palazzo Pitti.

I'm planning a few vacations this summer - The first being a ten day road trip to three southern cities. I can't wait! The downside to road trips is the limited space for luggage, so my crew decided on one carry-on and one knapsack per person. NOT GONNA HAPPEN! My Toy Poodle, Teddy, can fill a cary-on suitcase on his own (he's packing lots of toys). Luckily, I found this oversized tote.. 

I'm obsessed with this Gucci Logo Top Handle Tote (available at Gucci). The light pink rubber is the perfect shade for summer. This tote is HUGE and great for road trips. I struggle to fit everything in my small suitcase, so an oversized tote is essential for extended vacations. The rubber is thick and structured to resemble a vintage beach bag. The front of the tote is embossed with the Gucci vintage logo and the bottom embossed with "XXV", "Sine Amore Nihil", "Summer MMXVIII" and "Guccification". LOVE!

These "Walk'In'Dior" low-top trainers in white canvas (available in Dior boutiques only) are from the Dior 2018 Cruise Show and impossible to get. The canvas sneakers have a rubber sole, gold-tone hardware and don "Cristian Dior J'Adour" printed laces. LOVE! 

These Chloé gold-tone sunglasses (available at Intermix) have a horn brow bridge and earpiece. This design is smaller than the typical Chloé sunglass style and I do love oversized sunglasses, BUT the horn detail is a delicate touch to the otherwise masculine aviator style. I posted these sunnies in a previous 'I'm Coveting..' post and still fancy a pair. HINT HINT..

The latest Fenty Puma by Rhianna collection is "beachy and badass". I'm a big fan of Fenty and can't wait to see what Creative Director, Rhianna, will design each season. 

These surf-inspired Fenty women's Terrycloth dolphin shorts (available at Puma) look so comfy. The checkered print along the back waistband gives these shorts a motocross vibe and this color will look great against sun-kissed skin. These shorts are also available in a vibrant blue and cream. 

My favorite accessory on this month's "I'm Coveting.." post are these Rylee skinny calfskin boots by Chloé (available at NET-A-PORTER). The cloudy yellow shade is gorgeous. These slightly glossed, lace-up boots have a buckle at the top and across the vamp. The cutouts and buckles give these Rylee boots a warrior princess vibe. They're also available in medium - ankle boot style.

The little angels screen print on this Fiorucci Vintage Angels cropped Tee (available at Revolve Clothing) is kinda strange, but I like it. I purchased the Fiorucci sweatshirt in blue light with this print and can't wait to wear it on my road trip. The boxy sweatshirt style is a little shorter than your average sweatshirt, but the material is cozy. I'm not a crop top kinda girl, but I like this print. This angels printed tee is feminine and the pale pink shade is perfect for summer.

If you browse my blog, then you would assume that I already purchased these items (all of them). I can't help myself - by the time I curate an 'I'm Coveting..' list, everything is in my online shopping bag, waiting for me to hit 'complete order'! 

I LOVE these Chloé Carlina round sunglasses in silver and powder pink (available at Mytheresa). The braided, fine gold-tone metalwork is delicate and feminine. The frames are round and a bit oversized. The pink gradient lenses are pale and won't protect your eyes from the sun - BUT they look good. I'm a HUGE fan of Chloé sunglasses. The bohemian Chloé attitude is carefree and the variety of 'free spirit' sunglass styles evoke flower child charm. 

I had no intentions of buying new shoes when I went to Chloé on Madison in New York a few months ago, but you can't argue love at first site. These shoes were meant for me AND they're so comfy. The Chloé River wedge boot (available at Chloé) has a military look, but the corset-inspired lace-up vamp gives a feminine vibe. The laces are leather, so beware - these can stretch and break fairly easily. Pair these wedge boots with a t-shirt dress and the Chloé Roy double clutch handbag. 

Yeah, I would go to the ends of the earth to procure a handbag - I had to engage Dutch friends in the Netherlands to get this one. This pink leather micro-bag by Fendi (available at Fendi) is super tiny and embellished with galvanized pearls. I love this Fendi handbag style and am super excited to get my first micro Peekaboo. While it's still on route, I've already made big plans for this tiny Peekaboo handbag.

Each season Fendi brings us new bag accessories - fur pom poms, mini bags (to attach to your bag) and this season, the Fendi Space Monkey (available at Fendi). This little bag accessory dons the signature Fendi print and has a leather headpiece embellished with galvanized pearls. SO CUTE! I put this on my Mother's Day wish list.. I trust my Toy Poodle is gonna come through!

James Smith slides (available at Shop Planet Blue) are simple and chic. The slip-on style comes with a leather or suede vamp and a thin sole. These fit nicely and go great with everything. I have a long road trip this summer and think these will be the perfect slide for those en-route days and site-seeing. 

YUP, I have this one too. The Louis Vuitton Hot Springs backpack (available at Louis Vuitton) combines my two favorite LV Vernis leather colors - Amarante and Rose Ballerine. The backpack is small, but spacious inside AND has a pink lining. Backpacks are having a moment this season (especially mini backpacks). I was super lucky to land this bag. I'd seen it on the LV site, but it wasn't available. I casually walked into the Louis Vuitton store in New York some weeks later and there it was! That was great day, BUT the very reason why I shouldn't visit New York often. I've been selling stuff on eBay ever since, trying to make up for the financial damage I caused!

Have Your Juice & Eat it Too?

February 21, 2018
 
I was really intrigued by the concept of 'Green Juice' Gummy Bears by Sugarfina. I'd wouldn't mind squishy 'greens' flavored candy with the added benefit of 'real greens'. I ordered these gummy bears in all three sizes AND had high expectations. These gummy bears weren't exactly what I expected..
 
Although I was expecting a 'greens' flavored candy, I can understand why that wouldn't work. I'm not a sweets person, but I'm sure those who crave sugar, want sweet - NOT spinach flavored bears. These squishy candies taste like sweet-lime gummy bears. They have apple, lemon, spinach and ginger (even turmeric), but the candy aspect is strong. I had hoped for a 'greens' flavored gummy. I am a greens juice fanatic. Who has time to eat raw and cooked greens, along with all the other healthy stuff we're suppose to consume in a day? My go-to fruits and veggie juices make maintaining healthy lifestyle little faster and easier. Albeit, I do think spinach/kale flavored gummy bears may have a chance out there.
 
 
If you're a candy-craving person, these might a be a 'semi-healthy' solution. There is apple, lemon, spinach concentrate and each serving (11 bears) contains 20% of your daily vitamin A and C. What if you only eat 11 'baby' bears (they're half the size of the momma bears), does that still count as 20% or do you have to eat double.
 
Hmm.. I wonder why there's mama bears and baby bears? Did dad miss the gummy bear mould fitting? Dear Sugarfina, you're gonna upset few people with the mama and baby thing - maybe you should give dad another chance and allow him a spot in your 'Green Juice' Gummy Bears bottles! I have a baby bear - my Toy Poodle Teddy, looks like a Teddy Bear. I'm the momma, BUT he favors his daddy!
 
 
If you or someone in your life loves candy, these are fun, but if you're a salty person (like me) and love greens, these 'Green Juice' Gummy Bears fall short. They taste like every other gummy bear with a hint of citrus. I'm a little disappointed and hope to see 'real' green juice gummies in the candy section soon. I'd go out of my way and spend a small fortune to avoid actually eating real green veggies on the daily!
 
These little green gummies are available in 7.6 oz, 15.4 oz and a seven day 'cleanse' consisting of seven 1.7 oz bottles. Let's be clear, this is not a cleanse. There's a reason 'Green Juice' is in quotations. Sugarfina does state that these gummy bears are 'inspired' by Pressed Juicery greens juice.
 
Sugarfina is an amazing candy company. I purchased custom candy boxes for Valentine's Day gifts and they were much appreciated. The candy flavors are unique and you can custom by color, flavors or a theme. This place is my new go-to candy shop.
