CELEBRATING NEW YORK FASHION WEEK - SPRING 2018  

CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF AND WHY YOU STARTED YOUR STYLISH INSTAGRAM.

I hadn’t started my IG with any intention really, other than sharing my life with friends and family. But as I began to grow and make dog-friends, I saw that IG’s dog community offers a lot more than posting pictures. It opened a whole new world to me on dog fashion. I realized I didn’t have to resort to shopping my whole wardrobe from big box stores. There are so many artisans crafting unique items, it became important for me to represent myself with my clothes.

WHAT'S YOUR TOP LOOK FOR SPRING?

Paws down, my “Pretty Pink” fur sleeves EOD sweater. It gives me confidence and I feel so glam.

LOW KEY OR EXTRA?

Always EXTRA

NAME THREE FASHION BRANDS, YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT.

Ugh, there are so many! But... Eye of Dog, Rebel Dawg, and Mattie and Margot. All 3 sparkle or glitter and that’s important.

 PLAIN OR PATTERN?

Oh that’s tough, there’s a place for both - especially together!

WHAT'S YOUR BIGGEST FASHION INSPIRATION?

My IG friends! They find the coolest swag.

CELEBRITY CRUSH?

I’m always crushing on Gwen Stefani for her fashion sense. Can you imagine walking through her closet! SWOON

NAME ONE STYLE RULE YOU THINK ALL DOGS SHOULD BREAK.

Sequins are for special occasions. 

No way! If you love something, wear it. Who cares if it’s Tuesday morning at breakfast and you’re waiting to see the mailman. If you love sequins, glitter, patches, or bright colors - wear it! Every day alive is worth celebrating, so do what brings you happiness every day of the year.

DO YOU HAVE ANY FASHION PET PEEVES?

Fit. If it’s not a great fit, it can make a beautiful item look bad. I once found this really kick ass gold vest. I wanted it to work but it just wasn’t right. Sometimes it’s hard to say no to something you really want!

WHAT PIECE OF ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO ANY BUDDING FASHION DOGS.

Layering is key. Anyone can throw a hoodie on, but it’s what you pair it with and how you wear it that makes it a look. Pop a collar, roll up the sleeves, add your own patches. You can even layer your charms and tags if you don’t wear clothes. 

WHAT ABOUT NYFW 2018 ARE YOU MOST EXCITED FOR?

The commitment by many top brands to go fur- free! The fur trade is a senseless industry and I’m happy to see powerful brands taking the initiative to make a change for the better. Michael Kors, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, to name a few - have promised to go fur-free! This means so much to me, it’s a step in the right direction for the future of fashion.
