Seasonal Dog Wear

Spring time doggie dress


Summer is almost here! If we had four seasons in the Philippines, it’ll probably be around spring time now. Of course, Shantee the Dog Fashionista is into it too 🙂

I actually made this spring time doggie dress for Shantee a few years back. She wore it for a short television segment on GMA7’s Zooperstars with child actress Sabrina Man (not sure if the show is still running now though). But hey, it’s spring time!

Beach dog fashion!


I was sorting my digital photo archive and wondering what photo I can use of Shantee’s to post on this blog, when I suddenly remembered the dog fashionista Marc and I saw at Boracay Island when we went there with Pinoy travel and photo bloggers last month (that’s also when I bought Shantee’s favorite dog shell necklace).

This little fashion pooch belonged to one of the Boracay locals we saw hanging out with their pets at the beach. I couldn’t remember her name, nor do I know her breed, but this little girl sure knows what it’s like to live in high fashion at the beach! Read more

Polka-dot New Year dog dress with sash


First off… Happy New Year to all! 🙂

Shantee partied with the humans in welcoming 2008. So yep, I just had to make her a Polka-dot New Year dog dress! 😀

I got the black and white polka-dots cloth from my mom’s stock. And luckily, I also found a red chiffon cloth I was able to use as a sash/belt for Shantee. Why polka-dots? Well, it’s because of this Filipino-Chinese tradition, you see. Read more

“Ghost of Christmas Past” Yuletide dog dress


When my dad told me that we’ll be going to two family parties on Christmas Eve and another one on Christmas Day, and that Marc and I could bring Shantee along in these family reunions, we figured that she should be dressed up for the occasion.

I made Shantee a red velvet dress with gold trimmings, which strongly reminded me of the Ghost of Christmas Past from the movie, “A Christmas Carol,” whenever she wears it. But my husband Marc calls it “Shantee’s Harry Potter Dress.” Read more
