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.
