Outfit Details: Cat Print Dress - borrowed from Erica // Bow Flats - Vintage // Ring - gift from Marisa // Beaded Peter Pan Collar - gift from R's sister // Kitty Tank - TeeTwice on Etsy
When I first received this amazing kitty print dress that I am borrowing from the lovely Erica of Sweets and Hearts in the mail, I got the idea of layering it with my favorite cat tank. I was a bit hesitant about the level of insanity that this would bring to the outfit, but thought maybe since they were both black and white it would be okay. And let's be honest, if I wasn't willing to take a bit of a risk with my outfits, I probably would not have any fun writing a blog about what I wear! Then last week Marlen, the master of layering, wrote an article on her blog called "Layered Like an Onion" and I was instantly inspired to go for the layered look I had imagined!
I grew up always having at least one cat in the house, but we did foster care for animal shelter cats too so usually we had many more than that! I had to get this tank I spotted on Etsy a few months back because it looks exactly like my old Himalayan kitty Fluffer! Fluffy was such a love-bug but always had the GRUMPIEST look on his face, complete with not an overbite, but an underbite where his two little bottom teeth stuck out further. Gah, he was such a cutie!
