Now that winter is here, it’s time to stock up on warm and fashionable attire for that canine member of the family. There are some great new fashion trends perfect for cold weather. Here are some ideas of what’s trendy right now in dog clothes and accessories:
Denim works well for transitioning from fall into winter. It’s versatile with different types of fabrics and great for almost any occasion. Some of the more popular denim articles include embroidered jackets, dresses and skirts with frilly lace, and dungarees with t-shirts.
Fleece lined jackets trimmed with fur
Must have colors in your dog’s wardrobe include earthy brown and orange tones, purples, blush pink and olive green. Teal is popular right now as well.
Look for jackets trimmed with faux fur, faux suede and feathers
For year-end parties many canine fashion designers predict that soft romantic looks in velvet and satin accented with lace and faux fur will be all the rage.
For outdoor wear, consider a trench coat made of corduroy, tweed or mohair
Hoodies are also very popular this winter and available in multiple styles and colors
Don’t forget the bling! When it comes to jewelry collar tags and charms will be a hot item, as will silver bones on leather collars with matching leashes. For Christmas, consider charms in red & green.
Not surprisingly, many designers who have made their mark in Hollywood over the years have taken advantage of their status and dominate the dog fashion market as well. Some very popular brand names include Christian Audigier, Ed Hardy, Juicy Couture, Louis Dog, and Chrome Bones.
When my fiance and I set the date for our wedding, I started planning and shopping for all my accessories and wedding supplies, right away. I’m an online shopaholic, so, my first course of action was to hit the web. There were accessories and reception supplies that would help me to plan the most fantastic wedding and reception party ever, all on my computer. Starting with the beautiful invitations I chose, and finishing with the super wedding favors for our friends and family.
We had no problem choosing the theme we wanted for our wedding and reception, it had to be a beach theme. The beach has been a special place for us and our friends ever since we were kids.
I ordered beach invitations right away so they would be on their way to our friends and family, first thing. All the guests we invited said they would be there and that they can hardly wait to watch us walk down the aisle. My bridal accessories were the next thing on my wedding list that I would need. Shopping online has almost become a hobby for me, but even I couldn’t believe what a wonderful selection they had to offer. I saw a gorgeous tiara and hair comb in the selection, and I just had to have them. Not only did I find the perfect hair accessories, but my wedding jewelry too. I looked at all the jewelry and found the necklace and earring set I wanted to wear with my wedding dress. The pearls and crystals on the necklace set really added to the elegance of my wedding dress.
Great selection of bridal fashion supplies and the low cost really made this shopping worth while. I also bought a few items I can use while on our honeymoon. Even though we were getting married on the beach, I insisted on a floor length wedding dress. There were satin summer dresses for my bridesmaids and my flower girl, that had a knee length hemline. Everyone of them looked stunning and my flower girl was so adorable.
There were tiki torches and those little white Christmas lights everywhere and a dance floor my fiance had fixed there. I had sailboat place card holders and placed seashells and starfish all around the tables. I didn’t want to give our guests some useless wedding favor that would be stuck in a drawer and forgotten, so we gave them beach themed picture frames as thank you gifts. Everyone seemed to like the gifts they received.
Our wedding table was beautifully set with beach themed champagne flutes, little beach tea lights and lovely beach themed candles and holders. All the supplies and accessories for our wedding reception was decorated in an ocean side motif, and so was our cake topper. We had a cake topper of a young couple holding each other as they walked along the beach. I’m so glad they had all the supplies and bridal accessories we needed to plan the perfect beach wedding and reception. For those that weren’t into seafood, we made sure we had plenty of steaks and chicken for them. We danced to some really great tunes and enjoyed the fantastic foods that were prepared and just had one heck of a beach party. I kinda hated to leave the party for our honeymoon, everyone was having such a great time.
