Vintage, vintage and a bit of the new.
This outfit was inspired by my puppy Winston,
and my need to overcome his dominance.
My puppy has been challenging me lately, so I spoke with
a dog owner who is an expert with my breed.
The issue is DOMINANCE. My puppy has realized
how large he is and has been testing the waters.
The only answer is for me to make it clear to Winston that I am in charge.
I decided that a military ensemble would help me show Winston
how serious I am about running the house. I felt that going
"Drill Sargeant" would be the answer to whip him into shape.
I even thought some shoulder pads from the 80's might demand his respect
(or make him love Joan Collins in Dynasty).
Oh yes, indeedy...
Winston shaped up quick when he saw me
walk downstairs in this outfit!
Winston immediately stood at attention when he saw me
wearing navy and gold! Don't believe it when they tell
you dogs are color blind. :-)
Winston is now aware of how crossing the line and
trying to dominate me will only cause him to have
to run extra miles or do pull-ups, push ups and
any other type of boot-camp, hard exercise.
It is quite incredible to me that a change of dress can
make such a difference when training a puppy!
Winston takes me serious now, but when I
was wearing a thin maxi skirt, he just wanted
to chew and rip holes in the fabric.
Now that I wear this "awkward length"
skirt from the 80's, RESPECT is mine and he
doesn't dare jump up on me.
After just one day of wearing military clothes, Winston has
improved 100%. I finally have my puppy's respect
and it is all due to my choice of clothing that demands
R E S P E C T.

just got back from camp so we are all happy to be
together again before my oldest leaves in September!
If you are having difficulty with gaining respect from your animals
or even humans for that matter, try a military edge.
The clothes make the man or the woman, and your choice
of attire might even help you dominate in areas
of your life that need it. :-)
See you next time!
How I love mixing the decades!
