I've talked before about clothes I've picked up on my trip to Japan a couple of years ago. Everything in that whole country is just so adorable I can't get over it. Pleated skirts were in abundance in every color and style you could imagine. When I saw this skirt for the equivalent of about $10, getting it was a no-brainer. It's got classy retro cats with bows on them. So, like, duh.
To really theme the outfit up a little (which is always my goal, let's be real) I did a thick black cateye eyeliner. Unfortunately, that isn't pictured much here, but it was so bright out, I was squint-crying without the shades on!
OK, but speaking of shades. I found these awesome sunnies from ZooShoo for $10 and snatched them up because they were just too cute. They're a fun new take on cateyes--can we call them cat-ear glasses? Anyway, it seems like after I got them, I've been seeing them on bloggers everywhere. Isn't it great to accidentally get in on the beginning of a trend? But this pair is still $10, so get them while they last!
I thought these strappy lace-up wedges seem agile and catlike and this spike necklace reminds me a little of claws. Is that creepy? (It's almost Halloween, so maybe I get a free pass on the creep factor?) A red lip and a baby beehive help round out the retro look.
Now sing it with me: "Everybody wants to be a cat, because a cat's the only cat who knows where it's at. Everybody's pickin' up on that feline beat, cause everything else is obsolete!"
What do you think, do you like themed outfits or do you find them too costume-y?
