The Real Fashion Brains


Merry Merry Christmas Eve-Eve! So sorry for the lack of posts this week, but with the holidays, last-minute errands that need to be done, a full work week (boo!), and a pesky stye on my eye that has been no fun, I just haven't had a chance to take outfit photos. I stink like beef and cheese. (FAVORITE holiday movie reference there). I am very sorry, but in my place, my better, more fashionable roommate wanted to have a chance to offer a very special holiday treat for you today...a guest post! I'm heading down to LA this weekend to spend Christmas with my family, and I CAN'T WAIT! Are you reading this, Baby K? CAN'T WAIT! Happy holidays, everyone...hope your weekend is full of laughs and good eats and warm fuzzies, no matter what you do!

Hi, my name is Shumai, and I'm a 1.5-year-old Shih-tzu with more attitude than I can fit in my little 10-pound body. I guess I'm what you would consider petite, but what I lack in stature, I make up for with a whole lot of cuteness. Here I am wearing one of my favorite holiday outfits. Well, it's also one of my only holiday outfits since my mother has hangups about dogs in human clothes. I like to think it's because I'm so sophisticated, she just can't find much for me on the racks. Karl Lagerfeld, are you listening? I could use a dogwear line, if you have some extra time. Anyway...this outfit is great because it's warm and very slimming (my mom had to pull it really tight to get it closed over all my fluffy fur), and red, black, and white is such a classic color combination. Plus it's got velcro closures and a cute hood that you can't see very well, and I am all about utility in my fashion! Of course, I'm afraid the slimming effect makes my head look a little large. What do you think? Does this jacket make my head look big? Naaaah, it's just my imagination, right?

Well, I have to run...I like to do a perimeter check of our house about ten times a day just to make sure there's no food left around intruders. I hope you enjoyed my guest post because, take it from me, I am the fashion brains around here. There are many times a morning where my mom gets dressed, and I give her my best, "Seriously? You're going out in that?" look. I don't think she understands though because she gives me a pat and says, "Thanks for the help, dog!" Then I try to stop her from leaving in what she's wearing and she just says, "Aw, ShuShu, you don't want me to go to work. That's so sweet!" And I try to tell her, "No, I don't mind if you go to work, I just mind if you go to work wearing that." But I know she doesn't understand because then she gives me a treat and leaves. Sigh. I try to help her, but she doesn't listen. Oh well, as long as she keeps giving me treats, I won't complain. Happy Holidays, everyone! Give your pooches some extra love for the holiday...and tell them Shumai says, 'Sup!

Jellyby would be mega jealous of that sexy outfit. She's pretty much taken to going out naked, even in 25-degree weather, because I'm too lazy to put a jacket on her.

awww, I adore your dog! how cute! also, helpful tip: my mom suffers from eye styes very often and finds that a warm compress morning and night helps a lot! just run a washcloth under warm water, squeeze most of the moisture out, then fold and press over your eye for about five to ten minutes. hope you feel better!

Oh my gosh how adorable!!! I always wanted to get my cats to wear something like this. It was a no go. Bah humbug! Anyway, I'm a new follower. I'd love if you'd stop by my blog some time and say hi (and follow back if you're interested).
