You're the cat's meow

Outfit Details
Hooked on a Feline Dress: ModCloth
Black flats: jc penney (old)
Belt: from another dress
Wicker purse: yard sale

Kudos to June for the title of this post!  This dress doesn't get enough love from me.  I recently lent this dress to sweet Lauren, who styled it in a few different ways on her blog (here, here and here), and it definitely renewed my love for it and inspired me to wear it more often.  It's sort of a loud print, and the dresses I own by Folter Clothing tend to fit me a little snugly in the arm region, so that might be why I don't wear it a ton.  But it's a really cool dress, and I really do love this length.  I'm becoming increasingly more uncomfortable with shorter dresses these days, and I love that this can work with or without a crinoline.  Plus, when it's windy, I don't have to worry so much about flashing anyone!  

I don't really wear my hair up very much on the blog (or all that much in general, really).  My hair absolutely provides a sense of both security and femininity for me.  I always end up feeling sort of masculine/unattractive when I wear my hair up.  This hair style was sort of an accident, but I ended up liking it a lot.  I was wearing it half up, half down with a lot of extra volume to create a more 1960's look, and then it got too hot, so I ended up pulling up the rest of it.  I think the extra height does wonders on me, so I'll have to remember this for the future.

Have a great Sunday!

  1. You look so lovely!! The print on the dress is too cute.
    I agree, for pictures I much prefer to wear my hair down too. (And in "regular life".) But, I think this hairstyle looks great on you!

  2. this dress is too good. and that hairstyle does look nice on you! the bouffant is perfect.

  3. Great!:) xx

  4. This dress is totally you! It looks so pretty with your dark hair. Also cats, cats, cats!

  6. I've seen that dress while browsing Modcloth and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it (especially being a cat mama myself). You look amazing!


  7. You could never look masculine! You have a very feminine face and can definitely wear your hair up like this. I think you look gorgeous. Plus this cat print dress is the coolest thing ever. Seriously an awesome print!

  8. LOVE this dress so much!! If they have a dog version (since I'm totally a crazy dog lady), then I'd need it in my life, too.

  9. So funny that you mentioned feeling unsure of having your hair up at first, since when I saw this on Instagram, my first reaction was how much I loved the ponytail. You look amazing!

  10. That dress is adorable, but I could not wear it without making some kind of obscene joke. Love that wicker bag!

  11. I love your hair like this! I found myself agreeing with pretty much everything you said. I'm going to PUG prom on Friday so I busted open my Betsey Johnson closet... Only to find that most of the dresses are now too short for my liking. They will definitely be saved for Bianca one day. But seriously, I kinda hate everything above the knee these days.

  12. You look so cute! I love the cat print on that dress! It might be a loud print, but it's so fun. :)

  13. That dress is amazing! I used to not like wearing my hair up either but lately I've become more comfortable with it. I now wear my hair up at least once a week. :)

  14. I am a massive cat lover so this is perfect. I almost bought this and now, even more than before, I wish I did.

  15. Absolutely adore both your hair and makeup in this post! They compliment the look perfectly. Gorgeous.


  16. Your hair is so pretty like this! :D I've seen that dress on Modcloth.. and it looks so awesome on you!

  17. meow meow meow meow
    meow meow meow meow
    meow mix meow mix please deeeliiiiver~

    I haven't commented in so long! I apologize deeply in advance! I have been on the vacationing!

    This dress is so precious on you, and you look lovely as ever. Have a wonderful week, my love!

  18. Your hair looks so pretty and I don't think you could ever look masculine! I love how your outfits always have some kind of theme to them. This dress looks amazing- you can never go wrong with cats :)

  19. I feel the same way about my hair being up, but I can assure you that you don't look masculine lol. I love the height of your hair! I can never get mine to look just right when I tease it. And a cat print dress is always a win :)

  20. Gaaah, I love this dress <3 I just don't think I'd want it sitting out on a hanger near me while I'm trying to sleep at night. All those eyes...the eyes.... Haha :D
