“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening” – Coco Chanel [Fashion Designer].
As Coco Chanel said, fashion is in the way we live and for most people their pet is a big part of their lives; part of the family. For the Redman family our dog Daisy was as much a part of daily life as our morning toast. Sadly she passed away on 3rd May 2013, aged 15, she was a very lucky dog with a doting family, but I realised when walking down the street, I had not only lost a faithful companion but the best – for lack of a better word – accessory I ever had.
My favourite accessory is never something I had considered before; I have, like many girls, a rather sizable collection of shoes, bags, belts… whatever you class as an accessory: I have it and I have a lot of them! But the loss of Daisy, made me realise my favourite accessory was the one who followed me round the house in search of food, a hug, or just a game of tug of war that to be honest I never did manage to win. But credit where credit is due, she never once chewed my shoes.
Best dog in the world for a girl who has as many shoes as I do!
“Fashion is a potency in art, making it hard to judge between the temporary and the lasting” – Edmund Clarence Stedman [Journalist / Poet].
Daisy however, will always be my permanent fashion accessory.
Rest In Peace to my Daisy doggy, who always wore her ‘grey slippers’ well.
