The year of the dog … inspired fashion

This may go down as the most obvious, toungue in cheek post I’ve ever written! Chinese Year of the Dog = Dog inspired fashion.

The Year of the Dog also happens to relate to my birth year – 1970. Yes I’m a dog. No jokes please.

The Chinese zodiac moves in a 12 year cycle. Those born in 1958, 1982, 1994, 2006, and 2018 are also known as Dogs.

Apparently anyone born in an Earth Dog year will be communicative, serious, and responsible in the workplace.

Sounds absolutely nothing like me ! I don’t think those words have ever been uttered in regards to me …


So anyway I thought today would be a great excuse to have some fun, celebrate and to wear my dachshund print jumper [ look at me … I know how to party 😀]

I was gifted this by Tulchan Womenswear a few months ago. It’s now been reduced from £55.00 to £29.99 with all sizes currently available.

I love this jumper. It’s cute and quirky. I’ve not seen anything like it which is something I personally love. Who wants to look like everybody else?

I wore it with my jeans for a relaxed day spent mooching around the house.

Reading and coffee on repeat … [with maybe a little nana nap in-between ]

It’s just one of those jumpers you slip on and it instantly makes you feel happy.

AND I wasn’t the only lady thinking along these lines today .

The lovely @racheltoal [over on instagram] was on my wave-length wearing her fabulous Joanie jumper which is currently available in all sizes for £35.00

If you’re not already doing so you really should check out Rachel’s instagram, its bright , beautiful and very inspiring.

So do you want to be in our gang, our gang, our gang ?

You do …

good …

I’ve had a quick ganzy on-line and searched out some more lovely dog-inspired fashion for you.

Joules sequined Dog Jumper£25.95

Modcloth Dog Print Shirt – £32.00

Coach Georgette Midi Dress – £409.00

This is an absolutely fabulous dress.

I bloody adore it, Its got me written all  over it… well actually its got little dogs heads but you get my drift. I’m already envisaging myself rocking around Sheffield in it .I’m envisaging the shoes and a handbag I’ll team with it…

Dolce & Gabbana Silk Dog Shirt-£431.00

Not everyone’s cup of tea but most certainly mine; I think it’s an amazing shirt. Come on who doesn’t want Labrador’s and roses all over their chest? Putting it into prospective mind , that’s about on par with my monthly mortgage payment [and its been reduced!!] ! #megawonga

So there you have it.

As always I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please leave a comment below and make an old lady very happy.

And lastly before I go …please remember a dog [jumper] is for life … not just Chinese new year !

Gong hei fat choy!

Until next time,
