My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Fashion Challenge. Day 2. Monochrome

How fun is this!  Natalie , Dahlia and Becky in our black monochrome outfits.
Pants and sweater from ... Ann Taylor, of course! 

Anything black in my closet takes the 'Cricket test' as Steve likes to call it.  Is it a fabric that the beautiful yellow lab hair sticks to?  If so, then it doesn't work.

All 3 of you look great! I love it that Dahlia is included. Black is my favorite color to wear, but Cabana does make it challenging with her yellow hairs. Is there a fabric that passes the Cricket test? I don't think any of them pass the Cabana test.

Becky said...

Mimi; The Cabana test would be similar to the Cricket test :). Wool is out. Rayon is in. Textures that have a little smoothness so it slides off are great.

Jess and Glacier said...

That is fun for sure. :)
I had that problem when I got Glacier because my first dog, Jetta, is a Black Lab. So, I had to start switching some things in my wardrobe.

I love wearing black, but I have to be careful I don't also wear the dogs.

You all look fantastic.

You look great!!! I have always favored black ... since Haddie, however, I am finding myself wearing more grey, cream, and white. Not my fave, but it's what I have to do to still love the puppy. =) Great Rayon tip.

Looking great, even with dog hair! Any pet owner knows... no outfit is complete without pet hair! It's practically an accessory!

Kayla said...

Aw, you guys are so cute! I love that you matched. You look so classy!

Love & hugs to all three of you! You guys look fabulous in black. If I wear black, I dress in the garage & hop in the suv. With 3 yellow labs trailing behind me, I can't wear black in the house. Ha!

You can never go wrong with all black! So classic and chic!
And I totally know what you mean when you said the Cricket Test. I find that most of my outfits have a daily accessory of golden hair, lol. Hence why I ALWAYS have to have a lint roller in my purse and car :o)

You do Ann Taylor Proud, and you look lovely.
That is one thing we love about our standard poodle, she doesn't shed.
