French Curves: Mix et Match – c’est moi!

Le 16 du mois est passé et c’est le temps pour un autre challenge du French Curves. Ce mois avec le thème des imprimés different – le mix et match. J’ai vu ça et pense: c’est moi, c’est Miss Kittenheel.
 The 16th of the months has passed and it is time for another challenge of the French Curves. This month with „mix and match“ – combining different prints. Saw that and thought – well, that’s me, that’s Miss Kittenheel.

Ma tenue d’hier – pour faire des courses. La robe des journaux des chats est toujours populaire mais avec des talons de chaton – c’était une autre chose et définitif pas la dernière fois!
Yesterdays outfit – to go shopping and the usual round to the post office, etc. The cat dress is always popular but with the kitty heels it was something else – definitely not the last time I wear them together!

In my wardrobe and my drawers – sorted by colours are lots of (novelty) prints with animals, landscapes, tartan – and even plain stuff. More here (but in German) – in the Pin-Up Magazine.

On the Go: Sunny Side Up

Though the dress was made for the mother of the bride I think it is also quite a nice casual summer dress. Paired with my cheerful new beach towel and the golden summer hat, I am ready to brave the heat.

Auch wenn das Kleid eigentlich etwas festlicher ist, finde ich macht es sich ganz gut für alle Tage. Zusammen mit dem fröhlichen Strandlaken und dem breitkrempigen goldenen Sommerhut,  bin ich bereit für die nächste Hitzewelle. 

    
  The naughty ice-cream towel says „lick me“. Picked it as the colour suit my turquois bathing costume.  the cat wasn’t exactly impressed

Crazy Cat Lady returns

I got myself another dress and the parents a new cat. He is a  10 year old rescue cat called Gismo. The dress was called mews-eum by modcloth. Love the kitten and frame pattern. The cut however doesn’t justify the price. But being an avid reader of the reviews, I already expected that. Not surprisingly this dress gets a lot of attention. It is bags of fun. And not bad on the bike.


Sneak peek in customs where I picked this up.

The gray one looks like my one of our first cats. She was quite the princess. Like most of our others a former stray. She ended up on the streets after a very pampered first year. But fortunatley that and her stay in the shelter was brief, before she found me. When she had to be put down she was 18. We had a few cats, but she’ll always be THE cat for me.

This cutsey is Gismo. The new old cat in the (parent’s) house. First one in a long time that isn’t a shy one.

Ich habe ein neues Kleid und die Eltern eine neue Katz‘. Er ist ein ca. 10 Jahre alter Kater den wir vom Katzenschutzbund vermittelt bekamen. Das Kleid nannte sich Mews-eum und ist von Modcloth. Ein tolles Muster mit den Katzen in den Bilderrahmen. Leider rechtfertigt der Schnitt nicht den Preis. Aber das hatte ich nach den Beurteilungen auf der Seite auch nicht erwartet. Wenig überraschend sorgt das Kleid für jede Menge Aufmerksamkeit. Es macht einfach Spass es anzuziehen und hält sich nicht schlecht auf dem Rad.
Die graue Katze sieht aus wie eine unserer ersten. Sie war eine echte Prinzessin. Wie die meisten unserer Katzen ein ehemaliger Streuner. Nach einem anscheinend sehr verwöhntem erstem Jahr, endete sie auf der Strasse. Zum Glück war das aber wie ihr Aufenthalt im Tierheim sehr , sehr kurz. Als sie nach einem Unfall eingeschläfert werden musste, war sie über 18 Jahre alt. Wir hatten einige Katzen. für mich bleibt sie aber immer DIE Katze.
Dieses Schätzchen ist Gismo. Der neue alte Kater im Haus meiner Eltern. Der Erste in einiger Zeit, der nicht schüchtern ist.

 

 

Tuesday = Shoesday: Hello Kittens!

Recently came across a concept I really liked – tuesdays are shoes days!  So here we go – so many shoes, so little time – meet my kittten flats. You might know their swisher sisters: my foxy heels. The flat ones are really comfy. Think padded soles. And they are dead cute. Like so many T.U.K. Shoes. I think they try to look a little bit too innocent or inconspicuous. I found mine on Amazon. You might want to check these.

Miss Kitty-Cat

Guess I am a crazy cat lady in the making. Though currently I don’t quite see a feine sharing lodgings with me. Sure there are cats that don’t need constant human entertainment. But even the more individual ones prefer their human to be more often at home than just a mere four hours a day, at least awake. But it would be so nice to come home to a purring house (or rather flat) mate.

So for now I’ll just do the dresses and other cat accessories. This is cat dress number one. It is pink and has a quirky 1950s atomic pattern. A black kitten on a pink base. Slightly satinated cotton and a lovely circle skirt.

I saw it first on Becky’s Facebook page from  Does My Blog make me look fat? and thought – „wow, this is fab!“. Hesitated a bit and then my size was sold out. Bugger. But there is always ebay. And I got it from an American seller. Four weeks and a trip to my local customs office later, it was there. I like it quite a bit.

Most days I even wear it with my pale blue petticoat. To be fair, petticoats are overrated on hot summer days. But in winter the extra tulle layers add not just sone ooomph to the skirt but also extra warmth to the legs.It is a dress that works lovely in all seasons. And something I love about the place I work now, have even worn it to the office!
