Manifest Destiny: The Ultimate Cat Lady

Let's begin with a confession:  I don't read fashion magazines.

Yep. There you have it.

Glossy pages filled with things I can't afford and, in most cases, aren't my style -- but that I then go on to try and collect because the magazine has somehow got me thinking I must have these items or I'll fade away into non-existence? Yeah, I don't do that anymore.  

But Grace at Stripes & Sequins has me thinking I may need to reconsider this non-conformist move.  Late this morning her site went down, but she had mentioned something about cats prior to it hitting the skids.  So this afternoon I meandered back over to see if she had DIY'd some sort of the ultimate homage to cats (if you aren't already aware, Grace is a DIY Queen) when I laid eyes on what might be the most magnificent layout of cats to ever befall the pages of any fashion magazine EVER.  Granted I wouldn't know, but I'm just going to go out on a limb. 

And who knows? Maybe everyone and their mother already knows about about it, but in case you're like me and haven't seen this splendiferous display: Images are from the pages of Vogue Italia (May 2008) via Stripes and Sequins via Fashion Gone Rogue

I advise all you cat lovin' ladies to lay down if you aren't already. Brace. Brace I tell you!
Here we have a jumper. *gulp*
Um, a herd. Can I be her? Wait, I am. 
But without the glasses. Ultimate accessory...aside from the herd, that is.
Cat at eleven o'clock. Wearing glasses. *dies*
Rats on head? No thanks. Cat on arm? Yes please.
Cats on the stairs. Cat MUG. 
Grey Gardens style.
Cat musicians. *cries*
OMG. They caught me in my wig.

One day we need to have a chat about the crazy cat lady phenomenon and how it's kind of true. Basically, cat poo has been found to cause mental illness in people. PS... did you see that mouse in the last photo? Hilarious!

HA! Cats in glasses and with miniature instruments! Preeeeeetty cute. I think becoming this woman is a completely sufficient life goal. Although the second picture reminds me of this one lady I met outside New Orleans who ran an "adoption agency," which actually meant that she had 150 cats in her house. You can imagine how . . . intense that experience was.

I rarely laugh out loud when reading or seeing something and the cat in glasses and the cat with the ukulele made me eek. These pictures are ridiculous and exceptional.

1. I haven't read a fashion magazine in I don't know how long either. Maybe I was I still in my teens, which isn't all that long ago, but still.

2. This shoot is AMAZING. And reminds me of a nickname we've given John's dad that we should share with you–Mayor of Cat City.
