Leo: No we actually do not shave them because we catch them so early and treat them. I have had to shave those rare times if for some reason someone missed it and it got bad, but really that's so so rare. Also, in conjunction with this, I have Cepholexin on hand (this is the antibiotic for most things related to SKIN) and automatically start them on it. Cepho also dries this up and clears them in days.
Maltipoo: Yes, Gold Bond is also really good. What we are doing is drying the hot spot up with the products we are describing. That's a huge part of containing a hot spot.. ensuring it's dried up and no moisture is getting into it. I tend to waste more powder just because it's much harder to apply, hence why I like the spray.
With the Cepholexin, I dont even need the other things and this is such a mild antibiotic anyway. On a 70 pound Lab of mine, I probably would give 2000mg 1st day, 1500 thereafter for 10 days. Done and gone. :-)
MOST vets today, if you call them up and tell them your dog has a hot spot, and ask for some Cepholexin, they will just give it to you. It's really an easy antibiotic. goes by weight, easy to give, just put it in something like a little plain yogurt and they "woof" it down (pardon the pun) LOLOLOL
A Flamboyant Alternative to Holiday Party Dressing, Straight Out of Russian History
For most, holiday party dressing calls for a sequined clutch and glitzy shoes. But some people take things much further, like the Moscow-based trendsetter Olya Thompson. She is known for embracing festive garb inspired by the richly embroidered, folkloric fashions worn in Russia before the Revolution. Among the many themed celebrations on Thompson’s calendar this season was Axenoff Jewellery’s Tiara Ball, a romantic, period-style celebration in St. Petersburg that evoked the sumptuous glamour of the Romanovs.
To fit into the fin-de-siècle mood, Thompson opted for a gown by Russian designer Yulia Yanina and a stylized Russia sarafan, a traditional peasant dress with straps typically worn over a linen shirt, by Russmotive, a label that specializes in the Russian art of hand-stitching. Such dressing up is a family affair for Thompson: Her children were also outfitted in sarafans and her son opted for a cherkeska, a traditional Caucasian garment of Turkic origin that is also seen in Georgian culture. Additionally, Thompson had boots for her husband and her son custom-made by a Moscow workshop that makes footwear for movies and operas.
Much of Russia’s grandiose history is often found in Thompson’s accessories. “My earrings were also by Axenoff Jewellery—they featured hand-painted enamels of Pushkin’s wife, a great Moscow beauty who happened to love balls in her time, Natalia Goncharova,” she says. “As the theme of the ball was the tiara, I decided on a silver kokoshnik-shaped tiara by Axenoff Jewellery. It reminded me of 18th-century kokoshniks seen in Venetsianov paintings or the ones you see on ladies-in-waiting in the Renaissance.”
These Are the Fashion Designers You Googled the Most This Year
INSTAGRAM.COM/RSBELHASASo long Ivanka, hello Gucci.
Google's annual Year in Search report is always a great opportunity to acknowledge all the weird, miraculous, and frightening stuff that transpired over the past twelve months—and the fact that we still don't really know how to spell "beautiful" or use scissors. This year's most Googled fashion designers and brands—the ones that had the highest spike in traffic over a sustained period—are not entirely surprising when you think about the year's biggest news stories. While last year's listwas dominated by the Olsen twins, the Kardashian family, and Ivanka Trump, this year's list is almost entirely populated by hardcore fashion brands. 2017 was the year that logomania made a return and luxury brands embraced streetwear in all its millennial-loved glory. So, yeah, here we are: with a most-Googled-designers list that features a handful of names we actually care about. Wild!
From Ugg-boot collaborations to Instagram runway castings, these three Italian heavyweights all managed to make beautiful, high-end clothes and jump onto what all the cool kids were doing this year. To say these brands didn't benefit at least a little bit from Gucci's world domination would be wrong. Still, they also did their own thing with confidence. Dolce & Gabbana beat out Moschino and Valentino possibly because of its entanglement with various political issues this year.
Last week, a model described luxury lingerie as ‘empowering’. Is she right?
Amid the scantily clad world of lingerie modelling, a pair of Victoria’s Secret angel wings are the ultimate accessory. Heavily laden with an elaborate concoction of feathers, crystals and other flamboyant embellishments, the coveted wings are awarded to a handful of the 50 or so models who appear in the brand’s annual catwalk extravaganza.
And, for those Angels charged with showcasing the US company’s latest collection of fripperies, the financial rewards are heaven-sent. So when the Brazilian model Adriana Lima, a Victoria’s Secret Angel since 1999, and one who has banked $10.5m this year, announced last week on social media that she would not take off her clothes any more “for an empty cause”, it caused quite a stir.
With 11.5 million Instagram followers, Lima’s proclamation was big news – and an apparent U-turn in her professional aspirations and allegiances. Only last month, she appeared in her 18th Victoria’s Secret runway show – live-streamed from Shanghai to almost 70 million people around the globe. In a backstage post-show interview, the 36-year-old model talked of her aspirations to continue working for the brand: “Two more years. Maybe more, I don’t know. It’s nature. I’m working out, I’m being healthy, so let’s see how the body is going to turn out. But I enjoy it. So, let’s say 20.”
Puerto Rico's Fashion Week Resumes After Hurricane Maria
Three months after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, only 65 percent of electricity generation has been restored. But the local fashion industry is keeping their lights on by hosting the ninth edition of San Juan Moda, a four day event running from Dec. 19 to Dec. 22 at the Old San Juan Casino. Local veteran designers, such as Luis Antonio, Lisa Thon, and Miriam Budet will show this week, alongside Dominican designers José Jhan and Gianinna Azar, who will present a show on Dec.
This year’s fashion show will also benefit the victims of Hurricane Maria with a fund sponsored by first lady Beatriz Rosselló, actress Karla Monroig, tennis Olympian Monica Puig, ex-Miss Universe Denise Quiñones, and singer Ambar. Each has a specific project they’ll be sponsoring. Monica Puig will sponsor the building of a tennis court in Cataño, Puerto Rico and Karla Monroig a drive to deliver children’s toys to Guayama, Puerto Rico. The first lady of Puerto Rico will sponsor a benefit to help the University Pediatric Hospital, which is in need of incubators for newborns.
