Chocolate hues and vining grapes set the tone for this label heavy autumn display. Go from day to cocktail hour in that one-pocketed Prada on the right with a toss of the cardigan/blazer. It’s a super versatile workhorse of a dress! That centre Pucci- not so much. It’s more of a show pony, meant to dazzle your on-lookers with it’s fab print and poet sleeves. Separates are not to be overlooked over on the left. Dior ruffles and ribbons abound on that romantic crochet cardigan. It’s paired with a warm wool Celine pleated skirt which would look sweet with some tall leather boots. And there is loads more in store kittens!

Silver and grey are at play for this upcoming Thanksgiving weekend. How sexual is that centre 1970’s backless gown?!? The walk-away-factor™ is off the charts. It’s probably the lowest cutout we’ve ever had here at  the Meow Meow.  How low can you go?

Please note; we will be closed this coming Monday the 9th in order to sleep off the tryptophan.

Any of you who have met Arthur know that he’s far from being a shy or timid soul. It’s often hard for me to get a word in edgewise with him, and that’s on a good day. This week I was introduced to a whole different side of him when Jean Paul Gaultier came in to shop for some inspiration. Arthur became so soft spoken and actually listened attentively when spoken to. It was mystifying really. I guess the cat got his tongue.

I would like to introduce you to the oldest Louis Vuitton item that we’ve ever had grace the shop. This 1930’s LV hat trunk is literally worth dying for, or at the least worthy of a first born. It measures 19.5″ x 19.5″ x 11.5″. Just flip this baby on it’s side and voilà, a chic end table that will leave your guests drooling off of their chins. You may want to keep a tissue box handy on top of it….It also has it’s original skeleton key to keep your secret stash safe. Please contact us for more details.
