Happy Easter and/or holiday weekend! I’m excited to show you this window, you see it’s been a long time coming. I’ve been dying to showcase that centre Rochas gown FOREVER but didn’t have the correct 3rd dress until that little Prada on the right floated on in. Good things come to those who wait, I guess… Check out the walk-away-factor™ on the Rochas, isn’t it deliciously dramatic?!

It’s been an exciting week for us here! For starters, the Meow Meow was featured on the The Marilyn Denis Show today. We also gave our Sale Room an injection of merchandise and did some additional markdowns to the rest of the items back there. We now have over 400 pieces on sale, so what better time to snag a deal ladies?! And check this out;  all of our fresh spring merchandise has now hit the floor as well. Many new sweet frocks and summer ensembles are here waiting and longing for your touch. We must say that the shop looks quite light and dreamy now, kind of like these display dresses⇓

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!
