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!

One should always keep people guessing, espescially when it comes to fashion. We love mixing up vintage with new for that unique look. It defines oneself amongst a sea of predictable. So this week,  we have all new contemporary luxury designer dresses paired with vintage accessories. The silk Alberta Ferretti on the left is about a size 4 and is shown with a vintage crystal belt and necklace. The wool tweed Dior in the centre (sold)is a size 4-6 and has been decorated with a vintage Chanel camellia brooch. The hand crochet silk Oscar on the right is a size 10-12 and is belted with a deco jet flapper strand (can be used as a necklace as well).

This post is brought to you from our friend, Mother Earth. “Mother Earth-hosting your existence since the dawn of  humanity.”

Did you know that the process to produce new textiles is toxic to our planet?  Pesticides, petrochemicals, nitrous oxide, caustic soda, sulphuric acid, solvents, dyes and bleach amongst others are used in manufacturing daily.  Aside from being extreme and pulling an Eve by covering yourself with leaves, why not choose vintage? Not only is vintage the original choice for the fashion conscious lady, it is the eco-friendly way. This week’s window installation is sage coloured, as a friendly & subtle reminder for us all to be a little more green.

It’s finally August, and it’s not going to get any hotter than this kittens.  So leave the dark & heavy tones for fall and kick your heels up in a light and frothy hue. Grab one of our hand beaded 1960’s dresses (centre & left) or the contemporary Ferreti on the right for that event. Take the high road in cream and rise to the top.

This blush hued window is the precursor to our heart pulsing St. Valentine’s Day window that we have planned.  How soft, ethereal and ultimately feminine are these cocktail dresses? The McQueen on the right makes us swoon! And how divine is that 1940’s french beaded bolero that tops it?
