Lately it seems the fashion world has taken the catwalk as literal inspiration. When kitties aren’t showing up on shoes, swimsuits, and dresses, they’re working it as actual models or living the life as meow muses. Jason Wu famously revealed that his black cat Milu inspired his Target line and now Karl Lagerfeld, of the house of Chanel, has introduced the fashion world to his muse, Choupette.
This cat is insanely cute, which explains how she’s been able to mesmerize the entire fashion industry. Lagerfeld recently sat down with Harpers Bazaar to gush about his petite minou, who it turns out lives quite the lush lifestyle.
A few weeks ago we inherited an amazing australian shepherd. Technically we’re fostering him for my sister-in-law while she works out in the desert, but I have a feeling we won’t be able to give Chip back. This guy is beyond awesome. He plays really well with Milo, Fynn adores him, and he’s amaze-balls with the cats. I’m actually hoping his zen-like interactions with the kitties will rub off on Milo the terrorist. So far, so good.
When Chip came to us he was full on, long-hair aussie. Being the middle of summer, his ‘do was a little oppressive, plus it was turning into a primo spot for fleas to set up camp. A dose of flea meds and a trip to the groomers has completely changed this dude. I got him a puppy cut and, well, that’s exactly what he now looks like. Every time we’re out and about people stop me to ask how old my puppy is. “Ten,” I say.
“Months?” they ask.
“No, years.” This usually leads to mouths dropping to the floor.
Being an australian shepherd, when I went to pick up Chip from the groomers he came bounding out with a bandana around his neck. What is it about bandanas and australian shepherds? While I think the accessory is cute, I do find them a little annoying when on leash. They always get tangled up with your dog’s collar. Good thing pet design company, Wildebeest, is so darn clever.
How cute! They remind me of this rad swimsuit we posted about.
Today’s the last day to get these tees on sale via Fab. If you miss the deal you can still find them on The Moutain’s website for $20 and under. They are part of the company’s Big Face collection, which features full print close-ups of cat, dog, bunny, and guinea pig faces (there are also more exotic animals like rhinos and bears). The best part is that they come in both adult and youth sizes so I of course bought a tee (the lower right print) for Fynn.
