Before my roomie and I adopted our kitty Milton, I would say that I was just a cat lady. I thought cats were very cute/adorable, but I wasn’t obsessed. Somehow between then and now, I’ve become a crazy cat lady. Before, I would see something with a cat print on it and I would think, “Oh, that’s so cute!” Now I’m like, “ZOMG! I LOVE IT! I NEED IT RIGHT NOW!” That’s pretty much how I felt about this dress.

I am totally not surprised that this dress is popular in the blogging community (I think I’ve seen at least 3 other outfit posts with this dress). I wore this for my second day of NYFW. I was a little hesitant because I thought it was pretty likely that someone else would also show up in this dress, but in the end I decided to go for it. I love the fit-and-flare shape and it’s such a fun pattern that I don’t mind so much if everyone else has this dress too.

    I think the cat print is super cute, and you are the first blogger i’ve seen in it!
    sometimes i really like something until i see everyone has it, and then I lose interest. but I have enough unique pieces in my closet so that even when I want to throw on something every other blogger on the internet has, I feel like it’s at least unique in my styling.

      Thanks Lydia! That’s true- each person does have their own sense of style :)

    Usually I tend to like smaller prints but this is super cute! I am not a cat person so I’d never wear it but it really is darling and I love the flared out skirt too! I’m sure you made many heads turn :)

    I think that is an adorable dress. I am a “crazy cat lady” too. It happens once you get a cat of your own and fall head over heels for them.

    If I’m absolutely IN LOVE with something then I don’t really care if other people have it because I know I’ll rock it better ;) lol

    Super cute dress. You can wear it all year round. With tights in the winter and with cute wedges in the spring

      Thank you! Yes, I can already see wearing it with tights and a cozy sweater this fall :)
