The Cat's Meow

Finally! An outfit with my beyond-ugly-but-so-totally-awesome cat tapestry Litas! I wouldn't normally jump at the chance to buy a cat print shoe but the tapestry was the exact replica of a bag I purchased on Ebay 2 years ago while living in NYC! I saw this bad boy on Ebay and had it rushed to my midtown Manhattan apartment in a jiffy. I proceeded to wear it daily and garner all sorts of strange looks from passers-by. Not quite as many strange looks as I get now with the two of them put together! I love it. I have to say, just as many people exclaim how much they love them as those whose faces recoil into looks of disgust. They fun and I was feeling down on this particular day so they lifted my spirits! I kept it simple with a white dress but got a little funky with an H&M cardigan. I'm kind of in love with this outfit.

It's weird, it's fun, and it's so perfectly me (well, the weird fun side of me at least!) How can you say no to those creepy little cat faces?!? You can also get them in dog tapestry now, too!

Mike and I are spending the day off the computer, taking a "vacation" from work for our anniversary! So happy to bring in another year with this fabulous guy. I mean, I'm going to be stuck with him forever, right?! I'll be sure to share our adventures later this week! Happy anniversary, Mike! You are my prince charming!

  1. I love how wearing something that makes you smile can instantly turn your day around. I have a little apple brooch with a smily face on it and I wear it when I'm feeling a little too serious. :)

    I love this outfit! The shoes and bag are just fun, which is what dressing up should be about.

  2. Kudos to you for finding matching cat tapestry accessories. If I saw you walking down the street, Crazy Cat Lady that I am, I'd probably ask to touch your feet and your bag ;)

  7. Happy Anniversary to you two! :) And I absolutely love how the kitty-themed tapestry lifts your spirits, - lifted mine just looking at them, (especially seeing them put together!). I love wearing poufy dresses and skirts when I'm feeling a bit down. Tutus just make me smile, a lot! :)

  14. Happy anniversary! Hope you guys have a truly wonderful day together.

    I love the cat print...it's tacky in a GREAT way :) haha. I am wearing a long shiny sweater with safari animals on it today...it's probably one of my favorite/most ridiculous articles of clothing. haha

  17. I would kill for that bag! I really don't care much about others when I like something :) I used to have a My Melody-shaped plastic bag which I adored and everyone else abhorred, haha. Congrats on your anniversary. Yesterday was my first anniversary with my boyfriend :)

  26. congrats on your anniversary!! my mister and I will celebrate our 3 years together in january, time goes by so quickly! and I have some blowfish heels which look a little 'too much', but I love them! I love platforms in general, most people seem to find them totally ridiculous.. I don't mind!

  28. I once had this pair of rain boots. They were army green camo, but with flowers on them. Totally hideous and I couldn't help but buy them. And I think I paid under $5 for them because no one else wanted them! I eventually gave them away, but until I did, those ugly things got a lot of wear. :)

  30. Man, it's totally awesome that you found the same cat pattern twice THEN had the guts to take both pieces out together. I don't believe there's such as thing as too much kitsch and cat. You look great!

    This cat combo is killer. I love that you found the same pattern twice AND had the guts to wear them out together. I don't think you can ever have too much kitsch or cat- gorgeous!
