Crazy Cat Lady

February 20, 2012

I have a real weakness for cat-printed clothing. Ok, fine. I have a real weakness for cats; but since this is a fashion blog, let’s stick to how cats may or may not have replaced the polka dot.

I’d like to think that it all began when Miu Miu sent out a line-up of sassy cat-printed pieces for its Spring 2010 collection* but I have a feeling it started well before then. Either way, I’ve picked up my fair share of pieces that would meow if they could, but nearly lost 9 lives when I saw the Glamour x Opening Ceremony Cat Embroidered Sweater on some of my favorite bloggers and editors during Fashion Week.

There was no question that this little sweater would soon make it’s way into my closet — though I did have some trouble deciding between the black and the white. I ultimately chose white because it reminds me of Kitten Marie from the Aristocats, but don’t be surprised if you find the black one sneaking it’s way into an outfit post in the near future…

*Note: If anyone is willing to part with any piece of this collection — namely the cat-print collar — I will gladly rip take it off your neck hands.

Creep-tastic

January 13, 2011

After seeing how bad my roots were in my last outfit post (see here), I’ve been trying to cover them up with hats which happen to be one of my favorite accessories! I bought this vintage fedora a few years ago and love its androgynous style and snug fit. I wore this outfit the other day (before the snow hit) to go to a few meetings downtown and finish up some editorial deadlines at a cute little cafe in Soho. Unfortunately it was so cold outside that I was forced to photograph my outfit indoors or else all you would have seen was a big ol’ puffy jacket with my new pair of heels poking out the bottom.

I bought these Topshop heels last Friday and was a little skeptical about how comfortable they’d be but as it turns out they’re one of the most comfortable pairs of heels I own! Seriously, I could walk a marathon in these bad boys. And I love how they have that punky “creeper shoe” look to them, but become girly when paired with a billowy blouse and sheer tights. I just wish there was some traction on the sole so I could wear them more easily in the snow…
