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.

When it comes to colorful clothing, I tend to veer towards more neutral colors. For example, I, embarrassingly enough, organize the clothing in my bureau according to “color” and have one drawer dedicated to white, another to black/gray, and one I like to call the “rainbow drawer”. It’s not that I don’t enjoy wearing colors, because I do, I just usually wind up being most satisfied with an outfit made of shadowy hues as opposed to ones made up of vibrant colors. That being said, I do enjoy adding a burst of color to an otherwise neutral outfit to spice things up a bit. From a pair of bright yellow harem pants paired with a sheer black blouse to an all black ensemble paired with a bright turquoise necklace, I always try to bring a little color into my outfit.

Below I have compiled some looks that have atleast one bright burst of color; be it yellow, red, blue, or purple, these girls know how to bring color into an outfit.
