It’s a Fiesta of Feline Fall Fashion, AKA a Cat Lady Clothing Bonanza, at Anthropologie

Peter Som for Anthropologie Cat Dress

Wearing a new hairdo and cat lady clothing

We’re lucky we live in 2013, babe. It’s a purr-fect time to be a cat lady, purr-ticularly as it purr-tains to fall fashion.

Fur serious! blinking tabby

I feel like feline fashion has been all over the place lately (hello, tabby cat tee and sweater). Cat-themed clothes are having a major moment.

Of course, you know I’m lovin’ it.

Today after my haircut I stopped by the Anthropologie store at the mall to investigate (read: try on) the latest in fall feline fashion…

Cats are HUGE at Anthropologie right now, and a lot of the stuff is pretty darned cute.

Peter Som for Anthropologie Cat Dress ($198)

Love this dress!

The best thing about this Peter Som for Anthropologie Dress isn’t the colorful print, or how it could pass for floral from far away (like an optical illusion), or how it miraculously makes waistlines look a little thinner (although that’s fabulous, I gotta admit).


It has pockets. And they’re roomy, too. So convenient for carrying lipglosses and/or cat treats.

I wasn’t able to find it online…so you might want to check your nearby Anthropologie store for availability.

What a fun, flexible piece! You could wear the Tabitha Petite Leopardeau Jacket ($148) loose, by keeping the drawstrings at the waist undrawn, or cinch them in for a more fitted look like I’m wearing in these pics.

I’m still kicking myself for not bringing this home…

I bet the khaki, black and tan would go well with tons of different shoes, boots and purses.

A Fabulous Fall Wardrobe Update for the Price o’ Lunch! The $13 H&M V-Neck Jersey Top

Published in: Fashion

H&M V-Neck Jersey Top

Awesome fall fashion find: the $12.95 H&M V-Neck Jersey Top

H&M is totally my jam right now.

There’s a store at the Northgate Mall about 10 minutes from here, which I guess is both a blessing and a curse, haha!

Sometimes I’ll walk in there, and the sudden barrage of stimulation — the loud music, the excess of cheesy faux fur, the wall-to-wall racks all jam-packed — is too just too much for me, and I’ll walk right out. But other times, I’ll walk in and it’s like the budget fashion heavens have opened up, and it’s raining cute clothes. :)

That’s what happened when I came across this V-Neck Jersey Top.

H&M  V-Neck Jersey Top

Imitation Leather Pants by H&M ($34, currently available in stores and online), Necklace by Kate Spade (no longer available), pearl studs and blue spiked bracelet by designers I can no longer remember, unfortunately; lipstick is MAC Relentlessly Red Retro Matte

First off, it’s only $12.95, which DUUUUUUUDE, is about the same amount as a soup/salad combo with a large iced tea.

5 Things I’ve Been Loving Lately, Beauty and Otherwise

9 Things Beauty and Otherwise, That I've Been Loving Lately.

I heart all five of these bad boys!

1. Ouidad Wave Create Sea Spray ($23)

Ouidad Wave Create Sea Spray

Have you ever had coconut Lifesavers before? I don’t know if they still are, but they used to be in the Tropical fruit packs.

Dang, I sure loved those things…

I’d always eat the other flavors first and save the coconuts for last, and then devour them all one after another like Cookie Monster eats Chips Ahoys! until I reached a state of sugar-fueled ecstasy.

I haven’t had one in years, which makes me a little sad because I looked them up online today, and apparently the Tropical Lifesavers are going the way of the dinosaurs… (*tears*)

Oh, well. At least I’ll still have Ouidad’s new Wave Create Sea Spray. Stuff smells EXACTLY like coconut-flavored Tropical Lifesavers.

And it’s not just the scent I like. When I spray it on my wavy hair while it’s wet and let my hair air dry, I get perfectly tousled tresses, well-defined waves and lots of great volume — a little messy, but not too messy, which I like. None of that annoying crunchy business, either, you sometimes get with other beach wave sprays, blech! And my hair still looks pretty good on the second day.

What it contains

Crazy smile and Ouidad Wave Create Sea Spray in my hair…

The 6.4-ounce bottle sells for $23 at Ulta stores and

2. Lollia At Last White Petals & Rice Flower Handcreme ($25 for a 4-ounce tube)

This has been my favorite hand cream for a while because of the majorly moisturizing shea butter formula and the powdery rice flower, mimosa and magnolia scent.

I love the refreshing fragrance, so I like that it lingers throughout the day, and because the cream absorbs quickly into my skin, my fingers don’t feel slimy or greasy…so I can keep typing away at Tabs’ memoirs without skipping a beat. :)

I keep the big, cheerful 4-ounce tube at my desk right where I’m bound to see it, and it can remind me to moisturize during the day.

It’s available now at Neiman Marcus and

There’s also a smaller 0.33-ounce tiny tube for $7.50.

Anthropologie’s Black-and-White Deletta Sculpted Lace Peplum Top Sasses Up Summer Wardrobes, and Kicks Skater Boy Tees to the Curb

Published in: Fashion

Deletta Sculpted Lace Top

The fan-frickin’-tastic Deletta Sculpted Lace Top from Anthropologie

Sometimes when I get dressed I like to pretend that Michael Kors is sitting there in a Project Runway judge’s chair talking mad smack about my wardrobe.

“There are more holes in those pants than one of my blind nana’s knitting projects,” he says, and “you look like an ice cream truck at a Magic: The Gathering convention.”

It stops me from reverting to my natural state, where I dress like a hip-less 13-year-old skater boy, and keeps me on the lookout for cute, affordable fashion finds, like this black-and-white lace peplum top I scored on sale on Anthropologie’s website.

Originally $68, the Deletta Sculpted Lace Top was marked down to $49.95, which is still a lot more than $10 Old Navy shorts (which I’m also wearing), but after reading so many rave reviews about it on the Anthro website, I gave in, figuring that if it didn’t move me, I’d just return it.

Deletta Sculpted Lace Top

Shorts by Old Navy ($10, baby!), necklace by Kate Spade, earrings by Anthropologie and sunglasses by Target (because I’m still doing some crying). I’m also wearing Urban Decay Anarchy Revolution Lipstick and a 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil.

Babe, this top does werk! With it on, I feel taller, thinner and — by the gods — stylish.

The Long and Shorts of It: Old Navy Shorts on Sale for $10!

Mint green shorts with flamingo embroidery from Old Navy

Old Navy mint green shorts (with flamingo embroidery)

You know what they say: “You haven’t truly lived until you’ve worn a pair of mint green shorts with pink flamingos on the butt.”

Uh…I’m sure someone said that, right?

Babe, $10 shorts from Old Navy! I almost did a cartwheel in the store when I stumbled on these last night.

Teal with yellow seahorses…

Ah, yes…this is one of those times when I realize just how much I am my mother’s daughter, because of how excited I get about a good sale, which reminds me, I need to call and tell her about this sale!

Yellow shorts by Old Navy


Before I went down there yesterday, I checked the website and saw that they had shorts on sale for $8-15.

Sweet! I thought, but I wanted to try them on in the store to make sure about the fit and colors.

I’ve purchased stuff online from Old Navy before, and the experience has always been a little hit or miss. The sizing’s inconsistent. I can try on three different pairs of pants in the same size, and each one will fit a little differently. I seem to have better luck in the stores, so nowadays I just brave the chaos (does anyone else get overstimulated at Old Navy?), and try stuff on.

Peach shorts by Old Navy

Mmm… Peach sherbet.
