Somewhere in life, things started moving at hyper speed while you're still pacing at a slow, but steady rate. Time is a finnicky broad- when you want her to hurry along, she drags. When you wish for a quiet moment with her, she flies along like her pants are on fire (Isn't there a Buddhist saying in here somewhere? All we have is the present? To be present? Anyway....) For Sun-Pak, the day she brought home her furbaby is one etched in her mind forever. Sure, she had a few dogs growing up, but there's something momentous and "adult" about bringing a dog home to a place of your own. On that rainy, spring day with tornado sirens blaring in the background, SP remembers locking eyes with the Siberian Husky pup in her lap and loving saying, "We are going to have a great life together". That was six years ago today and many, many chewed shoes, overturned trashbins, and escape attempts ago. Bo-bo, Sun-Pak's true child and dog love of her life, is somehow six years old and the dogmom is having some trouble with it (they grow up soo fast). It feels like he was just a puppy yesterday. He still is in SP's eyes, anyway. Without having any "real" kids in her life and feeling like the blue-eyed husky deserves something special, Bo-bo's attentive mom opts to throw him a birthday party. People have parties for everything now, anyway. Stranger things have been known to happen. Inviting all of their favorite doggie (and, human) friends, Sun-Pak sees her furchild's birthday as an opportunity to celebrate one of the best decisions she ever made. One that changed her life for the better. And, better yet, it's an excuse to have a party. With dogs. So, the only real question is, what does one wear to a dog's sixth birthday party?

The deliriously sweet Bobbie Brooks dark blue frock features:
✶A sleeveless blouson A-line silhouette in a lightweight semi-sheer poly crepe
✶Voluminous bodice showcasing a scoop neckline adorned with an adorable matching bow, 5 dainty shank buttons along the centerfront, and side bust darts
✶Unexpected, airy back bodice draping that hides centerback metal zipper
✶Cinched waist accentuates a beautifully draped skirt
✶Shell: Poly Crepe. Lining: Acetate

Overdoing it at Treats Unleashed with customized doggie party favors and a VERY special birthday cake for Bo-bo, Sun-Pak realizes the ridiculousness of her ways, but doesn't care. She recently saw a meme about how pets are the NEW children and plants are the NEW pets. Honestly, truer words have never been spoken to SP's soul. As extra as Bo-bo's outdoor party has become, the dogmom opts to keep it simple when it comes to her party attire. Preparing for unreliable spring temps, the hostess pairs the navy bow dress with light-wash denim wedges and cognac cropped jacket, looking casual, yet effortlessly put together. With a messy half up top knot, letting the rest of her locks hang loose, SP completes the birthday party look with a bright red lip that will surely end up on Bo-bo throughout the day with all of the smooches he will be getting.

Returns and exchange details

✩Shopping is kind of like Tinder. You have to look over all of the photos, details, measurements, and terrible music tastes, before you make THE COMMITMENT. All sales are final.

✩Sequin Whore vintage items are previously worn and loved with a story to tell. The pieces are hand chosen with attention to condition, quality, hand, construction, and fit. Before the article is given a stamp of approval for saleability, it is carefully looked over for flaws and imperfections. Any inadequacies are reflected in the condition portion of the lisiting description. However, despite the best efforts and most thorough eye, it is possible that a slight blemish may have been overlooked. Refunds will only be explored if a piece has been widely misrepresented. (Whoosh, what a mouthful that was).

✩If a refund is deemed appropriate for vintage purchases, the buyer is responsible for return shipping. Returned merchandise is expected to be postmarked within 2 days of it's arrival date and in the condition it was in when sold. If additional damage has been done to the item upon return, buyer will be responsible for cost of loss in value. In such case, the buyer will be contacted before any proceedings take place. Monetary refunds may take up on 7 business days depending on bank processing.

✩Refunds will not be offered for sizing issues in vintage purchases. Sequin Whore offers garment measurements in listing descriptions and will happily work alongside you if additional information is needed. (Pinky promise, we will get through it together).
