Lady

As I was walking down the street with my tripod and camera to take these photos, a little dachshund came running out into the street after me. She barked and growled at my feet and then ran into a neighboring yard.

The owner came running out after her, calling - but anyone who has a dog knows that when they are loose, the chase is exactly what they want and the defiant little dog just took off further down the street.

I didn't really think I could be of any assistance to the owner and the dog wasn't in any danger, so I just continued on my way.

Then I hear, "LADY! LADY! Stop walking! She's following you!" I think it's worth noting that the dog was several yards ahead of me at this point; but I stop anyway, wait for the owner to grab the pup, and continue on my way, as the owner loudly reports to her boyfriend that "The dog was just following that lady!"

That lady? Don't I feel special?

That doggy knows good style when he/she see's it! Ha ha. :) Love that dress and your scallop edge blazer. I can't believe that dress comes from Avon.

Will pay more attention to the catalogs now!

I'm in awe of that scalloped hem blazer - what a perfect piece! You should insist that everyone call you "that Lady" from now on.

What another awesome dress! I saw this in Avon. I love how you paired it with the blazer!

At least the lady chasing after her dog didn't call you mam! I hate when people do that. It makes me feel so old!

dahhlayne said...

Oh goodness, haha. Funny doggy story. Well, I think being called a "lady" is a great compliment!! :)

I saw the scallop detail on your blazer and I instantly fell in love. One of my favorite details in clothing right now.

Gorgeous dress and blazer! Isn't it weird to be called lady or mam? Its so impersonal but I guess pretty standard...

Lovely outfit. Love the print of the dress, the scalloped hem on the jacket, it all works wonderfully together.

Gracey said...

This is perfect. The pattern on the dress with the scalloped edges of the blazer. Perfect. And the lion belt (I wore an owl belt today myself) is the perfect quirky touch. I think this might be my favorite of yours.

haha! that is so funny!! I got chased down by a dog just on Tuesday! And I felt retarded because as I was running away from it I ran into a tree!! True story. I felt retarded and I have bruises up and down my arms and legs now!! :(

Anyway, you look super cute and very classy :)

Oh no, I sympathize with anyone who's dog goes on random meandering fits. I have a shih tzu who is a perfect little gentlemen on walks, and at 12 yrs old we let him off leash most days because he's so goddamn slow. But every now and then he likes to run up to people's doors, especially if their open, and walk inside...

Thank goodness no one has objected to his visits during his 12 years on the planet and in fact, we've made good friends with lots of neighbours over the years due to his insistence on being noticed and petted, but whew, it's never wracking having to knock on a stranger's door and say, "Is my dog there, can I have him?"

Oh right, this isn't a dog blog....

Love the print on the dress, seriously love, actually. I like your pairing with the blazer, never would have thought of buying something like that, actually, because the truth is I'm never sure how to pair things like that (not quite a blazer because of the flowy touches but not a cardi, either) those kinds of things tend to stump me ;-)

But now I am intrigued about trying that!

What nerve some people have! Get a freaking leash jeez! I love the scalloped blazer--so chic! Your story reminds me of Lady and the Tramp. "She's never called me that before . . ." Sorry about your little run in, hun. Maybe it's because you look so ladylike in this outfit? Score!

Andreea said...

You look very classy and your blazer is simply gorgeous!

Ashley said...

Aw yeah I agree though, you DO look like a lady! That scalloped blazer is GORGEOUS! And so unique. You really picked a winning piece with that one!

Lorena said...

I. love. the. blazer.
I thought it was vintage but just read it was H&M!
AND I HATE.BEING.CALLED."LADY"or "SEƑORA".
Hits me in the wrong place. Wanna hit them.
But, I am getting older so I guess I better start getting use to it.

Melina said...

Wow, 'that lady'... how nice of them! However I am LOVING that blazer with the scallop details, that is such a cute find! And the print on your dress is really unique and pretty. Also... this location? Totally makes me miss New England! Jealous...

Kelsey said...

your blog is amazing! just had to tell you that :)

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

I love the outfit! I can't believe that dress is Avon. It really is a chic piece.
It is interesting how, if her perception was that her dog was following you, that she didn't apologize to the inconvenience of being chased by her dog. Very interesting indeed.

Lydia Marie said...

That's so funny! I guess there's a lot worse things you could have been called other than 'that lady'. And I love that blazer so much!

StyleIDnet said...

You look like a royal lady!! this outfit is gorgeous, I don't know where to start, blazer = 10, dress ...another 10 and belt = '11' :)
Love it! I think the pup just has good taste for nice outfits.

Shea said...

Maybe the dog thought you were way more chic than his owner, so that's why he followed you :) You do look very ladylike and sophisticated! I love that gold belt!

Tashrin said...

Hahaha the pup surely knows style but I don;t understand why the owner thought it was following you when it was ahead of you!!!

Love

very nice blazer - love the hem

jamie-lee said...

You look lovely. Very elegant. Funny story about the dog! :)

Kavery said...

The perils of blogging! I'd go with 'lady' because you do look lady-like in this dress.

Alex Elizabeth said...

Think I've definitely told you before, but that pattern is just so pretty. Ugh, should have tried on the scalloped hem blazer when I saw it! It looks so versatile and could definitely transition really well into fall.

Jess said...

Such a pretty blazer. I love it!

Maybe the dog had eyes in the back of its head?
