I have a problem.

Friday, August 27, 2010

I was warned that I might get in to trouble at Barker and Meowsky. It was a very close call, but I managed to dodge a $48 bullet.

The bullet.

I may be biased, but my little pup makes this already adorable jacket look good. Had I not purchased a new running outfit from Lululemon just minutes earlier, I would have caved. Then there's all the furniture and those sequined bloomers from J.Crew. And the tuxedo shorts. I needed those!

My friend Anne was on her way to pick us up to go to lunch, so when she called I tried to explain why we needed this jacket. It was the cutest thing I've ever seen, would be perfect for a cool fall day, and then there's the fact that I love Chicago so much that my dog really should have a Chicago jacket. She said that she felt like she was talking to Becky Bloomwood. I actually read that book. Ok -- I read half. But I know who she is and knew that I was going too far with this one. I took the jacket off my pup and left the store.

I would be lying if I told you that I have not thought about this jacket several times this past week. Would you have splurged? Before you say no, look at that photo! I love my little Chicago pup!


  1. I don't know if I would have splurged at that exact moment, but you can bet I'd be stalking that store every week to see if/when the jacket goes on sale. (I buy outfits for my cat when they're on clearance, and I somehow justify the purchases.)

  2. The cutest thing EVER!!!! HA :)

  3. ohmygosh... that is ADORABLE!! Look online maybe you can find a similar one for cheaper!

  4. Hi! We think your dog looks too cute in the Cubs Jacket! He must have it! When you're ready, bring your boy back to see us at barker & meowsky and we'll take 10% off! Just let the staff know that Gus (& Alice) said so! Adorable does have it's rewards!

  5. You already know my thoughts.....totally splurge worthy, (ps this is sent from my iPad which yes...I totally love!)

  6. you'll hate me for saying this: but, nope. it's not hard for me to say no -- even to something that adorable.

    pretty much, if it's not on sale (i'm talking at least 40% off) ... I won't buy it.

    ...I did just go check out eBay to see if i could find this cubs pup jacket -- the cheapest was $40.
