I’ve been lax in posting LOLA fashion stuff because I’ve been so busy writing!!
You know what I’ve noticed? I greet dogs before people! On the street, in stores… I go up to every dog, give a gushing hello and tell them how beautiful they are! I’m not sure if that is unnatural or unhealthy, but it feels really good.
I’ve spent the last four years deeply entrenched in the dog fashion world. So guess what I’m writing about? It’s a one hour black comedy, probably for a cable station. I tend to write black comedies. Occasionally I’ll write a drama, with tension-relieving comedic moments. I love to poke fun at human foibles, and I love to make people feel something true. This particular series has a lot off fun poking, and a lot of something-true. Think “Toddlers & Tiaras” meets “Desperate Housewives”, only with dogs.
Anyway… back to the fashion stuff. I finally made my Darling Dolls & Dashing Dudes Video! This was a campaign I ran, where I custom made for 18 people 22 original samples (some got two), for an insanely low price. On a private website I gave them a slew of fabric choices. They told me what they liked and we went from there. It was a lot of fun, and quite the learning experience. I’m doing it again in August.
Not everyone was able to send in footage, but what I got was GREAT!
I also made a whole line of human skirts! I found myself constantly wanting a cute skirt. Little minis to toss on over a pair of leggings. I couldn’t find any I liked! They were all straight and tight. I wanted FLAIR! I wanted glistening confections to wear with t-shirts and boots — play clothes and date clothes bubbling with panache! I’ve been too busy to promote them, and too busy to date! It’s the writing. I’m finishing on the 4th of July. After that comes my anti-bullying campaign. Stay tuned!!
These two skirts are my favorite. I wore the pink one to the A+D Museum gala and I felt so good in it! They each match a doggie outfit. That catches you up on all things dog fashion. Now back to my script. Happy forth!
