Woof Wear - Style in the Office

Posted by F&S

In every area of the company, the pets of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia mix fashion smarts and creative expression. We caught up with them at their Chelsea offices for a look at the dogs behind the diva.  “This isn’t the kind of place where dogs are in suits 24/7,” said Founder pets Francesca and Sharkey. “Everyone needs to be ready to taste-test a wedding cake or romp in the garden at a moment’s notice. We just had a photo shoot with donkeys, for pete’s sake.”  All haute dog apparel featured below available at PetSmart.

On Fridays, Coco goes a little more casual.  “The Hammerhead Shark Hoodie is a fierce yet comfortable statement piece.  I wear it on slower days or when I’m hanging around the doghouse. I love accessorizing it with toys, like this plush octopus…never hurts to add a little squeak to my ensemble. Woof!”

“When you’re in sales, you need to look and smell good to impress the dogs on your client list,” barks Georgia, a French Bulldog with infectious charm. “I wear a lot of dresses, and lately I’ve been wearing a lot of bows. I think they accentuate my shoulders.”

For Sambuca, a simple graphic tank is the perfect solution.  It’s comfortable and durable, ideal for working in the office or taking a stroll outside.

Sambuca also loves to accessorize, “This chipmunk plush toy is my go-to accessory; I bring it everywhere. It’s made from fake chipmunk, obviously, but it’s a real snout turner. Other dogs are always running up to me and sniffing it out—they seem to think it might be the real thing!

“Oh no, here I am in the doghouse again…,” Rafa whimpers. “I try to keep my clothing simple and low maintenance so I can focus on the work at hand.  Bella likes me in blue, so I wear a lot of it.”  When they’re not at work, Rafa and Bella like to chase squirrels and nap.

  • Hi F,S,&GK+ Glue Squad, Francesca and Sharkey, you sure did a nice job sharing these photos of so many of your friends wearing those beautiful outfits from Martha at the PetSmart stores! Every one of them looks so cute and gave us such fun comments to read! I would love to be there to see all of these sweethearts even though I never wear any outfit! Would have been fun to see you two beautiful girls in some more photos, too! I could find your newest blog last night or even this morning so I went to the blog section here on Martha's website and there it was and I enjoyed seeing all of it! There weren't any comments from our Glue Squad so I will check back later and hope to hear from my great buddies! Hope you have a great day! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Hello Francesca,Sharkey, Bear the pomeranian and all my glue squad buddies,
    What nice t-shirts for dogs. I enjoyed seeing all the nicely dressed dogs with their cute toys. We liked the owl crunch bottle toy.
    Abby tried to jump up four feet in the air to go back into her kennel at work last night!!!! Mom caught her mid-air and then she tried to bite Mom! Needless to say, no biscuits for her today!!! She keeps muttering she did it for Corabelle. What was she thinking???? Pug/peke/frenchies cannot fly.
    Now Kitty, you must know you will always be my Valentine. Maddox told me I have to be cool and not recite Shakespeare to you but even if I like other girl cats you are my sweetheart!
    Black Mama, I enjoyed hearing about your feral cat adventures. Keep an eye out on those chiweenies.
    Hope Delia feels better real soon! Dudley, where is everybody? Hope everyone has a great Wednesday!

  • I wish all finance fashionistas were as adorable as Butch.

  • WAAAAY too cute! Adorable doggies wearing adorable outfits... What a beautiful dog Georgia is, love the color...Lucy looks like my grand-dog Annie, Butch looks like he has mens underwear on, so funny!
    Coco, Sambuca, Rafa, Bella and Bear, kudos to all of you for being such good doggie-sports wearing all those outfits.
    Do you pups get to come to work with your owners? Looks like a good time had..

    Thanks for sharing!! :-)

  • Morning Girls & Glue Squad Friends, Just back from the spa, I feel so fresh & clean. Even pink bows, now how long they stay in will be another story. Will the bows make a fashion statement?? Loved the fashion show and all the latest outfits. Bet you sure had fun putting this post together today. It would really be hard to pick a winner. How is everyone doing? Ruby, heard you were decorating the backyard yesterday, Rebel, how are the ducks? Dudley Do Right, you have been quiet, anything new? Maddox, how's the work on the kennels coming? Still supervising? Zoe, any t.p. episodes? Abby, glad you didn't hurt herself flying, Mom said no biscuits today. :( James Dean, keep an eye on Abby, no tricks today. Kitty, did your Mom receive her results yet? Kirby, what's new with you? Riley, don't feel too bad about the pork chop but I bet it was delicious, I've been know to check the counter also, snagged a hamburger one night, took a small turkey breast off another night, but Mom caught me in time for that one. It was almost gone anyway, she had no sense of humor that night. Black Mama, did the Chiweenies come to visit? Hi Martha, Lucy, Molly, Jake, Baxter, Betty, Brutus, Max, Baby Favor-hope I didn't leave any one. Hi to Delia, Gail, Sonya, Lynn. Time for a nap, rain predicted for later today.

    Till next time,
    Missy Chow
    xoxo

  • I wanna see Butch in a dress, please!

  • Fantastic Woolf Wear! But I think a traditional african sisal skirt would do better :-) Should've gotten Francesca and Sharkey one each. But, opted for something beaded.

  • Hello Everyone,
    All I have to say is, work it, work it, you look marvelous kids. Those of us in the landscape business go au natural due to the nature of our job. Almost got my jobsite shut down last night. Thought I would do some faux landscape design with Mom's very colorful yarns. She was on the phone and very carefully I took 8 balls of yarn downstairs and outside. Zoe, I tp'd the entire back yard. So colorful and then the rains started coming. Mom said absolutely no more of that, as it is against code and the inspectors could shut me down. Would they have said this to Picasso? NOT!!!! Some people just don't understand my creative side, what can I say? Have a GEM of a day all.
    Love and licks,
    Ruby

  • Sorry Glue Squad buddies,
    The past few days have been very busy. I did go back and I read everything but I am too tired to comment on all the posts so I will start fresh in the morning. Yes, I know I don't normally post on Thursdays but I will make an exception because I have lots to comment on. I loved the fashion show today. Very cute outfits. Do they make denim shorts for furry guys like me?
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Hello to everyone in the Glue Squad and F&S!
    First of all what is the story behind the name "Glue Squad"?
    Now. Love, love, love the blog today. All the hottie girls in the snazzy clothes. Max and I will be looking at this blog for days to come! (Just don't tell Mom!)
    Max said he thinks he would like to try Owl Bottle Cruncher Toy. I only like to chew things I can eat.
    Gotta go....there's a squirrel infiltrating our yard!
    Pugs and kisses
    Brutie and the Beast!
