No Florence and the Machine… We think the dog days have just begun.
Sometimes the only thing that will tear my tequila-drenched soul out of bed pre-brunch is the idea of schlepping down to the dog park and staring at those adorable little nuggets with all the enthusiasm of a pedophile at Chucke-e-Cheese. Having a little pup may be the go-to accessory in the city (besides a Stieg Larsson novel.) And so it turns out that our favorite fashion ornaments may have their own fall accessories as well.
After hours of analyzing canine couture, I have compiled a few staples for my furry friends:
1. The Classic Knit: These owners typically say that their pet is just cold, but we know they just crave the horizontal stripes, like a Mime in Paris…
2. The Functional Fashionista: Froufrou here is wearing something from the Martha Stewart line. It tailored yet lined with shearling to provide warmth without bulk.
3. The Dress-up Artist: This is a dog who is not scared to push the envelope. What will I be today? Ironic imitation of the MTA police? A drug dealer? (Those little pockets are great for hiding Scooby snacks.)
Perhaps sexually confused? Or just a typical Tuesday…
Or a hottie fighter pilot? This sweet bomber jacket, complete with faux fur hood, gets sweet props from DisctictL and this foxy brunette as well…
If you cannot make it down to the Tompkins Square dog park to enjoy some four-legged fashion (and the occasional homeless man), you can always check out these fine online retailers:
But please, no rain boots. They do not look good on you and they are even more humiliating for your dog.
