DJ JazzyJ and the Fresh Pearl

Y’all may not know how important it is to me to coordinate.

Dogs, outfits, colors, patterns, schedules. Whatever.

A tad OCD.    ….a tad.

We got invited to a wedding recently. Not just any wedding. A double wedding. Or dual ceremony. On June 13, Just Happy Hounds played host while two dogs got married, followed by two people who tied the knot under a tree in the play yard at the most awesome doggie daycare in downtown Birmingham.

The dogs, Buttercup & Frankie G, got married first.

Then Sarah & Jeff said their vows. Circuit Judge Stephen Wallace officiated.

Members of the wedding party each walked down the aisle with a canine companion, including the lovely bride. And it was AWESOME.

I made a cake for the pups (although I suspect some people might have taken a nibble, and they wouldn’t have been wrong. It’s a tasty cake, if I do say so myself).

But back to the point. Our attire. We had to snazz it up a bit. Pearl and Truman needed something distinguished and refined yet playful to don.

Enter JazzyJ Designs.

Earlier this spring, we bought the prettiest little Pink Peony collar for Pearl and a simple bright blue Greek key for Truman. The problem arose when the leashes I already owned didn’t (say it with me) coordinate.

The pink ones were too pale or too purple. The greens and blues were all kinds of wrong. And we COULD NOT show up at this shindig with clashing leashes.

The absolute horror of it all.

Like white shoes after Labor Day. Or worse….

White shoes with black tights. 😮

I can’t even.

So we pulled up JazzyJ’s Etsy site and found matching sets.

Whew!

But more than that, lo and behold, there were ACCESSORIES!!

Pearl had a fit for her pretty pink flower,

and I had a near heart murmur over the Ikat bow tie for Truman.

Truman's Ikat bow tie is super smart with his bright blue Greek key on green collar & leash.

Canine fashion perfection. Worthy of a shout out on Stylebriefs. Just sayin….

cue ZZ Top’s Sharp Dressed Man.

Jasmine Lawson makes each collar, leash, bow tie & flower herself, and they are of excellent quality.

Ensembles complete, we trotted out on that play yard and wowed the crowd with our snazzy JazzyJ’s!

Get you one! You can buy them here. Highly recommend. Like Jasmine on Facebook & follow her on Instagram @jazzyjdesigns. You’ll be glad you did.

pugs & kisses,
