It's hardly a secret; I'm a cat lady in the making. Apart from having one, I also paint them, design them, and pin them like they're going out of style. Cats are pretty much my equivalent to crack.
How awesome are these old school gals? All lined up down a Hollywood street with their matching cats, dressed to the nines at a casting for black cats in 1961.

I suspect Consuelo Castiglioni, of the glorious Italian label, Marni, is a cat lady. I go nuts when luxury designers incorporate fuzzy felines into their work, particularly when illustrated in a sketchy, crazed, or child-like style (1 & 2). You should see me drooling right now.The other thing I'm addicted to (I'm almost, but not quite ashamed to admit) is temporary tattoos. Yes. I'm 25 years old. Temporary tattoos. Because four year olds can't have all the fun. So, the obvious question: why not get a real tattoo? Because I'm not a real badass. I'm a temporary "badass". (?)
Anyway, no matter what your age, I sincerely feel that there is a certain euphoric elegance about these temporary cat tattoos, designed by super talented illustrator Harriet Gray.1/ marni pink resin cat pin, $257 2/ marni cotton poplin "scratchy cat" floral shirt, $680 3/ madewell brass cat ring, $22 4/ tsumori chisato zippered cat pouch, $45 5/ cat origami pin by hug a porcupine, $25 (it's a british company, but they ship internationally!) 6/ temporary cat tattoos by illustrator harriet gray, $8.54 7/ forever 21 cat print cosmetic bag, $7
