A large number of my posts are fashion-centric. This one is not. As the moniker of blog so blatantly states, this is a guide for surviving in Los Angeles. Personally, my most important survival tool is a six pound accessory that looks equally stylish with baseball caps and ball gowns. No, it isn’t this season’s latest designer handbag. It’s my new Papillon, Pip! I’ve been a dog girl since birth. Seriously. My first word was “dog.” So it isn’t much of a surprise that dogs have been a constant necessity in my life. When I met this retired champion, it was love at first sight. For me. Pip (formerly Noble Lancelot; quite the show dog) played a little hard to get. But, like all good things, he was worth the extra effort. Since bringing him home, the little guy has hardly left my side. I call it co-dependence of the best sort. So prepare yourself to be puppy-blasted from here on out. Because Pip is my round-the-clock must-have each and every day.
P.S. Per usual, outfit details are below. Pip is not for sale. Duh. But, check out his breeder here for some of his beautiful relatives. Recommended in the highest.
