You wouldn’t think there would be any commonality among design, fashion and a dog’s tail. Pardon? My beloved pup had surgery on her tail recently and her gorgeous, fluffy appendage turned into something of a pom pom. Sad? Yes. Adorable? Absolutely. It reminded me of how delightful pom poms are. It’s something about a shape so perfectly simple encased in fluff. Whether it’s a detail on shoes, trim on drapes or something more unexpected – pom poms just make me happy.
The indefatigable Iris Apfel gets it.

My idea of ensemble perfection! Chloe embroidered bomber jacket, jeans and pom pom pumps.

We adore the ice princess charm of this room — a wonderful mix of playfulness, restraint and drama.

Winter is right around the corner. That means jackets (hooray!) and the holidays (gasp!). Time to start shopping!

The pom pom tail has been fun for me, but my furbaby is looking forward to having her fluffy rear back to normal …
The [tail] End!
