I skipped out on you last week, miss me much?  I fled to Havana for some fresh Piña Coladas, they just don’t make them correct here in the 6. Anyhoo, I’m back in black! You would think I would have been inspired by the colourful culture in Cuba and do a crazy wild display. Well Arthur pre-empted me and filled our windows with Pucci & Bessi last week. Wanna see it? Well there is a pic over on our Instagram account for you to check out; @thecatsmeowmeow. Now, onto our current feature ~ Pleats!

Here’s a dollop of winter white and creams to help you look forward to the spring season. Our inner boho chic meter is off the charts with that centre 1960’s tapestry coat! But what really has our crank turning is the Courrèges gown on the right. It’s clean lines are a minimalist’s dream, a sexy minimalist’s dream that is. You see there are side slits on this gown, thus giving your gams some attention. Oh André, you thought of everything!

If you’re a regular follower of our blog then you’ll know that I don’t post too many dresses pre-1950’s.  There are a couple of reasons for this but the main one is wearability. Generally, the older the garment the more fragile it is. When inspecting items I do alot of tugging and listening for snapping fibers. If I feel I could possibly bust through it like the Incredible Hulk while trying it on,  then it’s a ‘no-go’. Now grace your eyeballs with that Deco dress on the right. This beauty passed my test and is very wearable for a lucky bride-to-be. It really has a lot going for it; beaded bodice, drama slit sleeves and an open neckline. There is some spotting on the skirt that our dry-cleaner couldn’t get out but as you can see in the pics it’s not noticeable and she presents beautifully!
