The fashion industry's next big influencer clocks in at merely six pounds, with a whole lot of personality to compensate. Don't worry, she is in fact a dog. Meet Billie, the Italian greyhound/chihuahua mix, who also goes by her adorable nickname, Boobie. According to Insider, Billie's iconic looks started appearing online last December, and his popularity has grown tremendously since then. Bobbie's stylist team, answer for her, noted how Bobbie felt that, "People started to say I was an icon and it sort of fueled the fire. It started with one outfit, one pair of shoes, and went from there," she said.
According to Billie, "I love wearing two bold colors that complement each other really well or that are the complete opposite so that I can make a look out of it. I want to feel fabulous, so I have a lot of fun with what I'm wearing."
In addition to bold color combinations, Billie is also often found sporting chic miniature purses. One of her favorite fashion brands, Susan Alexandra, actually reached out about giving Billie a mini purse that would go great with any outfit.
"When I first started, I had a vision of who I wanted to be and what brands I wanted to work with. Susan Alexandra was one of the first brands that came to my mind and was on my the vision board. Two months ago, she actually reached out to me and asked to send me a bag. It was this magical moment where a dream became a reality and I finally got one of those magical bags. It's one of my favorite pieces," Billie added. Check out this adorable purse in action below:
While Billie has received a number of luxurious fashion accessories from top brands, her main source for runway-ready outfits is actually Amazon. "I order a lot of different things and build off of it. Amazon is a heaven for finding pretty much everything. I get really crafty with it."
Billie's (or Boobie's) style comes from a strong desire to make fashion accessible and pure fun. Rather than promoting exclusivity, fashion has the power to inspire radical confidence in the wearer. Billie states that, "I want people to feel happy and just far away from what they are experiencing. I'm always there for you and want to make you feel like the best gorgina baby angel that you actually are."
Her goals for the future include "Keep being a positive light for people," in addition to, "Stay[ing] really strong with my brand." We here at Minq will be closely following Billie's latest efforts, and don't be surprised if you see her scampering down a runway during the next fashion week.
