Cat Lady Covets: Cat Crepe Blouse

H&M cat blouse

I love a good cat shirt, and this one grabbed my attention for its cool color combo and low price (only $15!). The breezy crepe fabric makes it easy to wear right now while it’s warm outside, and also dresses it up a bit (not your basic cotton top). There’s even a little chest pocket that would be perfect for storing extra kitty treats.

Cat Lady Covets: Cat Trinket Dishes

So technically these are called Chopstick Rest Plates in their online store, but I really think these charming ceramic cat dishes could be used for almost anything. They’re perfect for holding tiny treats, resting a spoon or tea bag, as a ring dish…even as a small dish for your cat’s moist food. There are two styles – Calico cat or Striped cat (shown below) and retail for $12 each. What would you use them for?

Cat Lady Covets: The Cat’s Meow Necklace

The cat's meow necklace

I’m a big fan of Kate Spade’s whimsical designs, as you can tell from my coverage on the blog (here and here). I even own a couple of Kate Spade accessories, my favorite being this necklace I bought for myself after I got married. I’ve worn that necklace to death, where the gold plating has finally started wearing away.

But HOW CUTE is this necklace?!! I’m in love with it, and think I need to add it to my collection. It’s dainty enough to wear daily (see below on model), and I love the play on words. It would also make a thoughtful gift for the cat lover in your life.

Cat Lady Covets: Kitten Heels

Logan heels - Kate Spade

These shoes give new meaning to the name “kitten heels”….because they literally have kittens on the heels! And it’s a black cat to boot (we are obviously partial to them). Kate Spade always does cheeky accessories in a very classy way, and we’re excited they’ve decided to venture into the feline kingdom with their new line. What do you think, would you wear them?

Cat Lady Covets: Clio Cat Hair Pin

Clio Cat Hair Pin

I’ve seen many different iterations of cat hair clips, but really love the sleek modern design of this one in particular. It doesn’t look like it would hold a lot of hair back, but is perfect for  pinning bangs to the side or as a fun detail to an updo. How would you style this?

Feline Friends Friday: KitTea SF is open!

KitTea SF

The day is finally here…our local cat cafe KitTea is finally open, and yours truly has reservations to visit this weekend! Excited doesn’t even begin to describe how I’m feeling. I had participated in the crowd funding for the cafe last March, and have been patiently (well, maybe impatiently) waiting since then for it to open. Stay tuned, because there will of course be a blog post about our experience coming soon.

Feline Friends Friday: Cat-Themed Wedding Inspiration

cat-wedding-02

Cat Lady here, taking over the Friday blog post while Tux is off at a day spa (meaning he’s washing his paws in the water dish). I stumbled upon this wedding while scrolling through Facebook and just had to share. Why oh why had I not thought of this when we were planning our wedding!? Though Tux hadn’t joined our family yet (he wasn’t even born at the time!), and my husband hadn’t yet been turned into a cat guy, I’ve still always been a cat lover. Hmm…maybe future party inspiration. But for now, scroll on down and enjoy this paw-some and cat-tacular wedding!

Featuring the wedding of Lauren and Brian, originally posted on Green Wedding Shoes.

Lauren: When we were planning our wedding, we really wanted to incorporate our two favorite things in the world, our cats. I think a lot of our friends heard “cat-themed wedding” and said, “Hmm. Sounds about right for you two!” We wanted to imbue our feline festivities with a vintage vibe, and we turned to postcards, children’s books, and porcelain figurines for inspiration. We even brought our two furry feline friends all the way to Ojai to join us!

Cat Lady Covets: Cat Embossing Rolling Pin

Do I have any followers that love to bake out there? How fun is this rolling pin?! I had never even heard of embossing rolling pins until a coworker brought this to my attention, but now I’m imagining all of the cute cookies I could make with this. The best part is that you don’t even have to be skilled at decorating cookies at all (no tedious icing here) – all you have to do is roll the pin over the dough and voila! Insanely cute and easy to make cookies.

I loved this pin in particular because of the expressive eyes on the cats and cute thought bubbles filled with mice and hearts, but if you search “cat rolling pin” in Etsy you’d be surprised how many pop up! Ooh and I just read that you can use this pin on clay too – would be great for making little Christmas ornaments with kids, or little bowls/ring dishes lined with this pattern. So many options. Would you give this embossing rolling pin a try? Do you have any other ideas on how to use it?

Cat Lady Covets: Peeking Cat Pillow

Black cat pillow - H&M

Throw pillows are a fun and inexpensive way too to infuse personality into your home – and if it’s “crazy cat lady” personality, all the better. We love cat pillows here at Tux the Dapper Gent (as seen here and here), but this one in particular reminded us of Tux. Just the other day we captured an adorable pic of him peeping around the corner of a chair (see below) – doesn’t he look like the pillow cat, peeping around the side of the fabric? We also like that the graphic on this pillow continues around the back as well so you don’t have an incomplete kitty. You could even put two together like shown above to form a whole cat, or keep lining them all up to form a continuous line of cats!

You guys, it’s here…CatCon LA!! We are hugely bummed that we wont be in attendance this year due to schedule conflicts, but are hugely excited for the existence of this convention solely devoted to celebrating cats! As they state on the website, “It’s like Comic-Con…but for cat people!”

The convention takes place this weekend (June 6th and 7th; 9a.m. – 6p.m.) in Los Angeles at The Reef. Tickets are $25 for an adult day pass, and are available here. Besides all of the amazing vendors and exhibitors that will be there, many famous cats and cat people will be in attendance and speaking/greeting at the convention, including: Lil BUB, Pudge, Simon of Simon’s Cat, Shaun Sears and Tom Otto of Animal Planet’s “Treetop Cat Rescue,” Ben Huh (CEO of Cheezburger), and so many other famous internet cat and book sensations. See their full list of speakers here, and the vendor list here.

If you go, pretty please share pics, links to your blog post, etc so we can live vicariously through your experience! Who would you be most excited to see or meet? Have a purrfect weekend!
