Hi everyone! My name is Kanutten and I will be your guest blogger for today. Maja needed a day off, so she propped me up on a chair and left me by the keyboard. This was fine by me – I am featured far too rarely on this thing and today I am taking it upon myself to make poodle the new black. Prepare your eyeballs, because I’m coming for them.
I’m an all-natural kind of girl, so I’m not going to write about beauty. I shampoo and condition my curls once every two weeks and the rest of the time I #wokeuplikethis. What I want to write about, however, is my wardrobe. Maja loves to write about her clothes and most of all she likes to write about how to not buy any more clothes than she actually needs. Bitch please. We all know who’s the true minimalist in this house, and let me tell you, it’s not the girl who poops inside.
Yeah, I went there.
If you are looking for a Shiny Minimalist Guru of Stuffless Perfection™ then look no further, because I have NAILED the 5 piece French wardrobe. I only own 5 pieces! Three sweaters, a raincoat and a winter coat. Boom. Done. I would like to see little miss blogger over there get by with that little. Poser.
Now, let me take you on a tour of my expertly curated closet.
The oversized raspberry sweater
This sweater is a handmade artisan one of a kind original. Don’t believe me? Ask Maja, she’s the one who knitted it for me. It is an oversized fit, but I’m told that oversized styles are very in this season. It is knitted from 100% Norwegian wool and is very warm and snuggly. Perfect to cover up those extra Christmas ounces.
The cropped knit
Another one of my bespoke artisan originals, c/o Maja. She made this sweater a bit cropped, but I totally have the body to pull it off. I always feel like purple is very appropriate for December, so that is when I like to wear it the most.
The custom striped alpaca sweater
This one was a custom order by The Boyfriend (Maja’s boyfriend, not mine). I think he felt insecure about walking a pink- or purple clad 6 pound poodle around town and needed something more gender neutral for me to wear. I forgive his manly insecurities though, because Maja really outdid herself with this man-friendly black and blue creation in 100% alpaca wool. Very classic, such understated, much luxe.
The eye-catching rain coat
Truth bomb: I don’t like to walk in the rain. I even walk around puddles to keep from getting my paws wet! Sadly, sometimes you just have to go outside no matter the weather, and that’s where this rain coat enters the picture. It is very high quality and in an eye-catching firetruck red. This is a true forever piece, and everyone assures me I look positively adorable in it.
The winter onesie
This is the newest addition to my wardrobe – my winter onesie! I am six years old and have survived just fine without a winter onesie so far, but I know for a fact that my people have been very reluctant to take me for long walks when it is extra super cold outside. I have very little body fat and poodles only have a single layer coat, which means that I start to shake and shiver very easily. This doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m cold, but the onesie does keep me from getting wet and it also keeps snow from sticking to my fur, so it’s all good. The onesie is lined with soft fleece and makes me feel like a toasty warm marshmallow.
I hope you enjoyed this peek inside my wardrobe! As you can see I have tried to keep the number of items low while keeping the quality high, and I very much think that I have reached my goal. If you are looking for the true minimalist wardrobe then look no further. This is it.
