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.
