The Presence Of A Cat

I know many ladies (and gents) on the web are big fans of cats...I however, am not. It's not that I actively dislike the furry creatures, it's just that given the choice between a cat and a dog, I'd choose the latter every time. Slightly ironic I suppose since my family has often referred to me as being cat-like--my mother likes to call me the "cat who walks alone" (from the Kipling story, "originally all the tame animals were wild, but especially the Cat: he walked by himself and all places were alike to him"). All of this rambling to say: there's a cat pocket on my dress and it's still pretty awesome.

Outfit details:
Gryphon trench coat
ASOS tights
Korkease oxfords

I really love the outfit, particularly with the Korkese oxfords! And the Kipling story of the Cat Who Walked by Itself is one of my favorites! I love cats. :-)

Beautiful bag!

Such a cute dress! I used to dislike cats too, until my hubby has 2 cats. They are cute, just a little aloof.

Ash :o)

the dress is awesome and the pocket is awesome and you look very pretty. I love it when you and calivintage style the same dress - I did see this on her, right? :)

@kittenhood, haha yep! we actually talk sometimes about how we should tell each other what we're buying before we buy it, b/c it's not intentional that we keep ending up with the same pieces!

I'm a cat person, so I need that dress! Lovely.
I love the color combination, is a classic.
Kisses!

What,what,what!? A dress with cat pockets on it...? What a dream! xx

Agnes Deer said...

I'm officially a cat lover, and that dress has stolen my heart officially. I got my eye on it since I first saw it on Modcloth :) Looks great on you! (Even if you like dogs better ;)

Though I have a dog, I still love cats. However, I think that I am one of those people who like both. Dogs and cats are equally cute, as is the cute pocket on your dress. :)

you're just so different looking now with your hair all cut off. I really admire your jump from super long to super short. The 4th photo down is my favorite. I think even more now that you'd look adorable in one of my bow ties. Let me know if you change your mind because I'd love to see you wearing one in whatever color you fancy! I have a red velvet one in the works right now and it would just look so sweet with this dress. :)

love, polly

That dress is adorable. I've never seen a "cat pocket" before and it's quite charming.

Annebeth said...

I'd always choose a dog over a cat! But it's probably because I've been raised with a dog always in my household. I absolutely love the coat, it's fantastic!

friedenlinde said...

this outfit IS perfection! and that dress... ooooh that dress! I am so in love with it, I wish it didn't cost that much for a dress to get across the ocean or I'd buy it in a heartbeat.. :(

Jamie Rose said...

I'm definitely a dog person too. They're just so much friendlier and so very adorable. I love the cat pocket on your dress, though.
