Lives with Coco d’Este
Studio City, Calif.
Lulu is a Hollywood hound, with the current Lassie as her sister; she is often invited to attend Tinseltown's canine events. To ensure that Lulu is not outshone by the human celebrities, her owner, Coco, creates "doggy bling" especially for her.
To create Lulu's flower power look, Coco simply removes the stem from silk flowers and hot glue the blossoms to the "grabby" side of a piece of Velcro. Coco says that with Lulu's thick fur, attaching the flowers to her fur with both sides of the Velcro isn't necessary, but it might be required for a dog with smoother or shorter fur. She further embellishes the flowers by adding rhinestones or Swarovski crystals. To add more bling to your pet, Coco recommends stitching silk flowers onto flat elastic bands or ribbons to create decorative collars, belts or cuffs.
