Man’s best friend or woman’s best accessory?

“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 my 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.
