smitten as a kitten!

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Last week I got THE best present in the mail, ever, EVER, ever from Pony Chops! I am beyond smitten and I'm pretty sure my cat lady status has been confirmed (as if having "cat lady" across my knuckles wasn't enough). If you're new around these parts, or just not connecting the dots on this one...THOSE ARE MY KITTIES! All four of my babies! I love their silly little faces.
Here are some fabulous close ups because you definitely need to see how awesome the details are.
I can't wait to wear them out and about. But until it dries up outside they're going to stay safe and clean on display in my craft room. It's so wet and soggy out right now. I'm apparently drawn to puddles like flies to poop (uh, sorry about the gross example, I really can't think of another one!) and I'm not taking a chance with these glorious shoes! I'll be sure to post outfit pictures when they finally do get to see the sunshine.

Pony Chops is currently taking custom orders in case you're interested. I'm pretty sure everyone needs a pair of shoes with their animal companions on them. How adorable would some lizards, or chickens look on shoes?! Oh my, OR TURTLES.

  4. Oh my god. Those shoes are fucking gorgeous! I could just eat them.

    I wouldn't be able to wear them. They would have to sit on a shelf for fear that I would ruin/scratch them.

    Looking forward to an outfit post to see what you pair them with ;)
