Costume fun at PAWS Scaredy Cats and Dogs 2011!


Last Sunday, 23 October 2011, PAWS held its 8th Scaredy Cats and Dogs pets and kids costume contest. This happens every year, but it’s only now my sister and I decided to actively take part in it. The Php250 registration fee went to PAWS, and that really makes it worth the effort πŸ™‚

Shantee came as Rainbow Brite since we knew she wouldn’t want to wear something as weird as Kubrick’s Steamed Shrimp costume. The weirdness (and apparently the uniqueness) of Kubrick’s costume won him the Crypt Keeper’s Choice (Most Original Costume) award, and Shantee went home sourgraping πŸ˜› Read more

Meet Dog Fashionista’s newest “model”


Meet Shantee, the newest dog model for Dog Fashionista! She’ll be taking over where her late predecessor, Sheero, left off.

Shantee the Fashion Dog

That’s Shantee with red ribbons and her crystal bling, after her first-ever puppy grooming at Georgette’s Closet. Being a pup, her grooming cost Php350 (around US$8).

Goodbye Sheero…


Sorry I haven’t been blogging. Dog Fashionista’s favorite furry fashion pooch passed away just last 26th of October. This blog had been dedicated to Sheero‘s liking for glitz and glamor, so it’s been really hard writing here when it reminded me so much of her.

For now, this blog will be on an official hiatus. Hopefully, the next time I sign back in, it’ll be with a new blog theme. See you soon.

Welcome to Dog Fashionista!


Who said people are the only ones who can have a fashion blog? Dogs can too!

This blog isn’t just about dogs, it’s about those who live with style, glitz, and glamor. Go ahead, bookmark this blog, and join me in my quest to give my otherwise “uncultured” dogs a taste of the upper-class dog lifestyle! πŸ™‚

To get instant updates on Dog Fashionista events and exclusive doggie photo albums, like the official Dog Fashionista page on Facebook!

Shantee has her own page on Facebook too!


Glamour? Fashion? Spas? Who said that dogs can't have them too? Definitely not us! :) Read more
