Completely Sane Cat Lady Returns: ootd

    I've spent the last few months catching glimpses of the little calico kitten that my semi-tame wild cat had over the summer.   She's big enough to eat with her mama on our back porch, though we're not having an easy time of taming her. 
    Since her mother's name is Sassy Girl and for the first month or so, the only time we saw her was when she was sleeping, my little ones have dubbed her Sleepy Girl.   I think Scratchy Girl and Hissy Girl would also have been appropriate names for this staunchly unfriendly little one, but I was voted down.
    So, in honor of Miss Sleepy Girl I'm showing off my most awesome thrift store find from Japan.  This tan and black cat print dress was hidden in a dim corner of an already dim store on a clearance rack for about $2.  I zeroed in on it and pulled it off the hanger with a squeal.  It was a bit too big, but hey, everything is right now, so I'm learning to deal and honing my seamstress skills at the same time.  Tights are a must for these chilly days and I added my Forever 21 Peter Pan collar blouse to layer it up.  I know, I know, I wear this top with everything, but isn't that the mark of a truly great piece?  Plus, I think it makes this dress a little more interesting.

     I'm also excited about a recent find.  I was browsing dresses and found what appears to be the same cat print dress that ModCloth had a few years ago for $80 under the name Hither and Yarn, but this one is only $17.  With side by side pic, I can't tell any difference between the two.

I've placed my order and I'll keep you posted, but it's heading to my stateside address, so it will be a while before a review is possible.
