When it comes to fashion, nothing is off limits. Everyday objects like Flaming Hot Cheetos to tin cans have gotten a fashionable twist lately, but this one is all about man's best friend. Mignonne Gavigan created beaded dog brooches that are the definition of posh pooch. You can take your dog with you and be fashionable at all time — no pooper scooper needed.
There are a lot of off-the-wall accessories out there, but this pack of dogs proves that anything can be high fashion. Designer Mignonne Gavigan is known for extravagant beaded accessories, but the Dog Brooch Collection is just as quirky as it is cute. There are 27 different dog breeds available on the website, ranging from small little pugs and poodles to Saint Bernards and Great Danes.
Each one costs roughly the same as adopting a dog from a shelter. No matter how big or small the dog breed pin is, it will set you back a cool $125. That's not exactly the most affordable, but a small price to pay to show some high-fashion love for your pooch.
The pins are made of only different colored beads, a piece of leather, and classic pin backing. Each one is 1.5 inches square, so you can easily sneak them onto any backpack, scarf, or jacket lapel.

These accessories are more than just pins. They are works of art. Each one masterfully weaves different colored beads together to make for exact replicas of some of the most popular dogs. I'm talking everything from scottish terriers and golden retrievers to pomeranians and mastiffs.
Unfortunately, you cannot personalize the pins to look exactly like your dog. But these accessories are so on-point that people might think that you have. The detailing on each one is incredible. From tiny little threaded eyes to bright red tongues, Mignonne Gavigan has done quite the job.
Believe it or not, some of the designs are already sold out on the website. But don't worry if some of your favorites are already gone. You can put your email in to be alerted when the select beaded breed is back in stock. Once you see some of the best breeds, you'll see why they're selling so fast.

If this adorable dog doesn't convince you that you need one of these pins, then maybe the bedazzled beaded collar around his neck will. Because if there's anything better than outfitting yourself with a beaded dog, it's with a beaded dog that has styles.
This one is for all of you redheaded lovers out there. This pomeranian might be smaller than the other dogs, but it packs just as much sparkle and class as the rest.
