Pretty Kitty





My husband wanted to call this post "Nice Pussy" and, while I was tempted, it is a family blog :-)

So this is darling find no. 2 from Refinery Vintage - a sack pinafore from the early 80s (we estimate, based on the seams and the material). The zipper is what sold me. Well, the $20.00 pricetag is what sold me - or maybe it was the heretofore never encountered animal print corduroy. It's just one big mishmash of adorable, IMO. And, though I was there the first time, I wasn't exactly chic back then.

I'll generally wear it with a belt to mitigate comments about pregnancy though, with my new, neon yellow, Club Monaco v-neck I might just let it be its bad-ass puffy self. And, this dress is great with a flat boot, a sandal or a shoe. Versatile, non?

  7. Merci Enc!

    WendyB: He has his moments.

    Bronwyn: Thanks. They're shoes I love but haven't seemed to be able to really break in - even though they're Rockports and sensible wedges. I mean, what does a shoe have to do to be comfortable??

    Rose: Thanks for your sweet comment. My mother has been talking about my attitude for years - but not so positively :-)

    Ambika: Too bad you don't live in my town or we could put that theory to the test...

  9. Arrgh. My comment from yesterday didn't transmit. Anyway, I think this dress is charming. I love that you can wear a belt with it too.

  10. Dreamecho: I know - isn't the zipper a trip! The thing paid for itself on that basis alone.

    Miss C: So sad your comment got lost in cyberspace. That's happened to me - when I'm at my most brilliant, of course - and it's very disappointing. Maybe you can paraphrase? Thanks for your compliment about the dress. The skinny belt is a godsend with these puffy dresses.

  14. Merci, IHeart and Addicted. I wore it yesterday and 2 people (both kids, interesting) noticed and commented on the zipper.

    Nadine: When I saw this dress, I actually thought of you. It strikes me as the kind of eyecatching, unusual dress you would find - or make, knowing you!

    Isabel: Please feel free to comment on my blog anytime :-) I really appreciate your compliment. Sometimes I feel more like a hot mom than others! K
