Last Monday, the weather was absolutely miserable, cold and wet, work was stressful, I was in a bad mood… Until I came home for lunch (I know, how continental) and opened the parcel left by Mr Postman.
I tried this little beauty on, the sun shone for a while, and I was happy again.
Moral of the story: if you’re feeling down, wear a cat print dress- even just for a little while.
I know, it’s just a summer dress with cats printed on it. I probably won’t be able to wear it that much since we seem to have moved into Winter overnight. But it’s a great dance to go dancing- so light and just floaty enough that you don’t end up showing too much flesh 😉
I found this dress on eBay for a tenner, I was actually looking for this Mango dress:
And in the end I got a bit obsessed and found another long sleeved version, perfect for Autumn (and winter with a warm cardi). But more on that in another post.
I know animal prints have been around for a while. I admit that until now, I managed to stay away from them- you know, the swallows, the foxes, the octopuses, and now the owls. I can’t wait to see what comes next- my bet is on wild boars. Wouldn’t they look awesome on a dress?
(I am joking, but wouldn’t be surprised at all if this took off. I mean, you see girls wearing these horrible t-shirts with horses or dolphins on them, which were already tacky in the 90s- a very forgiving decade for tack).
