What I wore; cat shirt and flatforms

Thursday, April 12, 2012

the details
sunglasses - c/o Tumbleweeds
shirt - c/o Supayana
ring - c/o Sea of Bees
skirt - thrifted / vintage
belt - thrifted
shoes - Gypsy c/o Blowfish

Not even sure where to start with this outfit. I love every piece right down to the belt. The shirt - it's amazing. Once you get past the really amazing kitty you can look at the downright perfect quality of this handmade shirt. (Yana, you are AMAZING) I was going to compare it to something from the store but then I realized that's probably an insult since even a novice could spot the shoddy craftsmanship in store bought clothing. Color me impressed!

Also, these shoes! LOVE THEM. They're now officially my second favorite pair of shoes from Blowfish. (Number one being the junction shoes, I wear them all the time!) I'm not very comfortable in shoes that give me any sort of height. I'm 5'7" and while that's not really all that tall, I don't like sticking out anymore than I already do (thanks purple hair and tattoos!) But there is just something about these shoes that I can't resist! They're really comfortable and I can jump in them, which is clearly a must!
Hope you're having a fabulous day!
xoxo

  7. That is so weird, I always thought you were super short for some reason, not 5'7! You're like four inches taller than me.

  10. At first glance I thought the design on your shirt was a chest piece until I realized how silly that was since I know what your actual chest piece is, haha!

  11. I still have a couple Yana shirts from back in her ebay days in 2007 or even 2006. They are all holding up to multiple wears and I always get a "where did you purchase that shirt" question :D

    1. That's so awesome!!! I always wondered about how my older designs held up. I'm actually pretty embarrassed about some of my old sewing techniques! I guess being self-taught I had to figure out a lot of things the hard way, hehe. I feel like my quality has gotten 100000x better- I've learned so much since then!

  12. aww you look amazing! this is gong to sound super weird but when I saw the first picture at a quick glimpse, it looked like you had tattooed a cat on your neck/chest area! Of course that's silly because you already have a tattoo there but it was definitely a cool first look! ;)

  16. Can we hangout now please? Everytime I see a new post from you, especially jumping photos for some reason, I just want to hang with you!

    Such a cute outfit. I am dying for a pair of those shoes!

  17. The first thing I thought when I saw this post was how awesome the whole outfit looked--it works very well together. And I think her fox version of your cat shirt is going to be one of the first things I purchase once my 30 for 30 Challenge is over!

  22. Those shoes are so cute! I WANT YOUR HAIR! I wish I had to courage to dye my hair! I work in a professional office and I get enough stares with my piercings and tattoos....they've already told me, "no more piercings, please" and have asked that I covered my tattoos. I wish I worked for myself so that I had more freedom! You sure are a lucky gal! ;)

  27. I love the cat top! I ordered a shirt from the Supayana shop a few weeks ago and I love it so much. It's so well made and the vintage fabric is so pretty. I also have the same Pee Wee Tumbleweeds :) You look great as always!

  30. Hoky crap, man. I love that shirt so much.

  31. That cat shirt is beyond adorable. And I wonder if I'll ever be able to feel comfortable in sandals... I'm not weirded out by feet, and my feet aren't weird-looking, but I've just never been a big fan of sandals.

    I digress. Your shoes are super-cute too, and I *love* Blowfish. I bought my first pair from them on your recommendation -- the Java boots! I still love them, but they've taken quite a beating.

    Whoops, I'm chatty today. :)

  39. I hate wearing heels because Liam and I are exactly the same height, so I tower over him when I do and I feel like an amazonian woman! I do love a beautiful pair of heels though so occasionally i'll think "what the hell!" and be taller than him... occasionally. x
