I didn't think I would become an obsessed dog in to dog apparel and accessories, BUT after Teddy's first winter and the need for a coat and boots - I was transformed. Grey and Teddy wear summer shoes and winter boots (socks too), as well as sweaters, t-shirts, pajamas and random accessories. You gotta start the little fashionistas out young!
My go-to shop is The New York Dog Shop. Grey's Puppia Pinkaholic sweater and Teddy's flamingo shirt (pictured here) are from there. I got the cute cartoon t-shirts at Joom - It takes forever to arrive, but their inexpensive and worth the wait. I purchased Grey's hair bow from Amazon - It came in a variety pack of six. SO CUTE!
This is the best part - If you hold up two outfits and ask Teddy which one he wants to wear, he will pick one. Grey just wants to destroy everything!

Meet my new fur baby, Grey. She's a handful and growing so fast. We're celebrating my birthday and managed to capture a few picks of this antsy little one. She lasted five seconds in the Georgetown Cupcake bag - We need to work on her model skills!
Thank you Dior Washington, DC for the beautiful flowers. If you follow me, you know I'm obsessed with Dior. Visiting Dior DC is most of my major excitement during these troubled times. Everyone at the store is super friendly and they make you feel special. Especially my Dior girl Marika. LOVE her!
Teddy is a little dog model. He poses and breaks out the blue steel look on command. Such a cutie. If it looks like Teddy is growling at his annoying little sister here - he is! Teddy is not impressed with the new overly excited fur baby.
Thank you husbano for the perfect at-home birthday celebration (of two). It was a Dior birthday with the famed Georgetown cupcakes and bubbly.

I celebrated my 40th birthday yesterday. It seems like forever to some, but time has gone by so fast - especially the good moments. I don't feel old and thanks to botox, I don't look old either!
Yesterday was the perfect 40th birthday celebration. Thank you Teddy for enduring another photo shoot. You're a super star poodle model.
I was not aware of most of these 1980 facts, but in all fairness, I was a baby! I'm a little disapointed in the "famous people born". Was hoping for someone with more depth. I suppose Ryan Gosling is ok - Who doesn't love The Notebook?!
I can't believe Post-It Notes were invented in 1980 - I love them! I'm one of those old people that refuses to keep notes on my iPhone and sticks pastel-shades of Post-It Notes everywhere.
My little dog model went to doggy daycare for the first time yesterday. I spent my birthday lunch watching him on the daycare webcam. He sat in the corner and closely observed the regulars. I'm sure he was overwhelmed and hope he gets comfortable at daycare in the near future..
By the time we did this birthday photo shoot, he was exhausted.
Thank you Shai for the lovely flowers and Limerick poem. It reads..
This Urban Stem bouquet is called the Limerick - hence the humorous poem!
I purchased my Forty AF t-shirt and Hello 40 socks from Etsy. I frequent this site for celebratory products. The apparel is good quality and inexpensive. There's also a wide variety of items for every occasion.
Urban Stems is my go-to online flower delivery company. Thank you husbano for the Metropolitan bouquet and your kind words. Oh and thank you Teddy - I love that you singed the card by yourself!
My favorite - a Dior box. I LOVE my new kicks. They're a step down from the oversized "dad shoe", but still sporty. These Dior sneakers are super light and super white (wish me luck keeping them that way).
My birthday celebration ended with famous Georgetown Cupcakes - delicious! I could barely eat one, cause they're so sweet. It was great day - Bindass for lunch and cupcakes for dinner.
Here we are dancing to The Git Up. Thank you husbano for the perfect birthday. I plan on celebrating all week and can't wait to see what else you have planned..

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 two days of rain in 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!
