Ms. Nicole Lima was kind enough to send us another snap of her. This time, she’s in her grad dress from the Meow Meow. She states:

“I would like to thank the ladies at The Cat’s Meow for helping me choose my adorable 1950’s graduation dress! Once again, I was beyond thrilled to be wearing one of your dresses! Thank you so much! Your store is beyond beautiful!”

Isn’t she ravishing in red?

We are really loving how many of you ladies are sending us pics lately! Keep ’em coming. We enjoy seeing our vintage dresses back in action, living again, after many years in seclusion.

Today’s email and pic is from Leanne Wood. She states the following;

“Just wanted to send you guys a quick thank you note! I purchased my 1960s wedding dress from The Cat’s Meow in November of 2012. I finally got to wear it on May 17, 2013. We had a perfect day – simple, stress-free and filled with friends, family and fun! Everyone loved the dress and it fits my personality perfectly. Thank you so much for being part of our special day! I definitely look forward to shopping at your store again.”

We are so in love with this week’s window display! It’s one of our all time favorites. The contrast of the turquoise with the vermilion red has us swooning. How do you feel about this pairing?

Click on the pic below and zoom on in, because this week; it’s all about the details. During the 1960s there was a brief resurgence of the flapper girl look. The center Judy is sporting a fine example from this flashback period. The left Judy looks subtle in the front, but don’t be fooled, she has massive “walk away factor”. Her sexy V back is accentuated with covered buttons that trail down the spine. Judy on the right is a more contemporary piece. It’s an Alaia, its brand new and it’s simply divine!

Today we received an email from the sophisticated Nicole Lima. It reads;

I just wanted to thank everyone at The Cat’s Meow for helping me choose my beautiful 1950’s prom dress! Throughout the night, I received numerous compliments about my dress and how I looked like I stepped out of an Audrey Hepburn movie. I was delighted to tell everyone that I purchased my dress from The Cat’s Meow! Once again, thank you so much! I will definitely be returning to your beautiful store!

Thanks Nicole!

Don’t we all wish to be adorned in precious jewels from head to toe? When such a life  isn’t an option, why not indulge yourself in saturated jewel tones?  These sapphire and emerald dresses are rich in colour and style.

The picture perfect Ami Powell just sent us the following email;

Just thought I’d email you a picture of me from my prom, wearing the gorgeous 1950s dress I purchased from The Cat’s Meow.  I received countless compliments about my dress and everyone wanted to know what store it was from.  It was a pleasure to choose my prom dress from your store, and I will definitely be shopping there again in the future!
Thanks for everything, and I can’t wait to wear my dress again as soon as possible!
