Fall Glam with The Artichoke Crate

November 14, 2017

We are so excited to announce a new arrival to our family! This is Charlotte, an all black shih tzu, and we are already so in love with her. We've been pet-less for over a year now and decided we were missing that special little thing in our life - you know, that feeling when you come home and they are freaking out because they are so happy to see you, or the never ending snuggles in bed, or being playful when you've had a bad day and hate the world because puppies don't know the current political status of the world, and they aren't concerned with what social drama surrounding the office - they just love YOU and it is a much needed breath of fresh air. 

She is a handful, don't get me wrong, as all puppies are but we can already see some of her personality:

1. She is a scaredy cat!! She runs away from every noise outside - like, bolts it to the door and forgets to relieve herself so we have to take her back out multiple times to get her to go lol. (TMI???)

2. She loves people. There isn't a soul she met that she didn't instantly try to snuggle them with licks and love.

3. Her favorite play toy is a plastic up. It is the cutest thing to watch her play with too. She bats the cup like a bear or a cat, and the cup slides across the hardwood floors so it is entertaining for her to try to "get it".

To honor this addition to our family, we decided to do an impromptu photo shoot inspired by this this gorgeous dress by Shabby Apple that I got in the Fashion Place Mall at a store called The Artichoke Crate. The Artichoke Crate is such a cute and unique dress store!! My favorite thing about this store is that their dresses come in longer lengths so everything actually fit me (I'm 5'11). I could not believe it!! I had the hardest time picking out which dress to wear because everything fit me so well, which is not what I am used to being my size. Shout out to the lovely ladies who work at The Artichoke Crate for being so accommodating and helpful! Pretty sure I tried on half the store and they were so incredibly kind about it!!

As an added bonus - the entire store is currently 50% off through November! Happy early holiday shopping!!! If you're in Utah, I would suggest checking out their inventory asap! They have two locations - one at Fashion Place Mall in Murray and the other at Station Park in Farmington. You can also check out their Instagram here or their Pinterest here.
