Caught my Eye Friday

Here is some cool stuff I found around the internetz this week!

Like most of the world I am obsessed with Henri Le Chat Noir. But I feel akin to him in many ways, he may be my new spirit animal.

Le sigh

Continuing on that depressing note, this song pretty much sums up the fears of a generation in a truly funny sad a way.

Okay let’s cheer up please, bring on the cute stuff!

Check out these totes amazeballs shoes from Etsy seller Pony Chops. (Pictures link to shop.)

Each of these hand painted shoes are so unique and fun and are sure to garner a lot of attention and squees of cuteness! They run about a hundred US dollars, and they also take custom orders so you can get a pair in your size or a print of you wildest kawaii dreams.

In other cute shoes news, is has some of the Twenty10 Hello Kitty Footwear on sale for the next few days.

I already have these two

Now I grabbed these two!

Asos is having their mid season sale right now, and a bunch of their Curve line is on sale. Here are a few of my favorites (Pictures link to site).

This cute nautical dress comes in red or navy and is marked down to $29!

This color is everywhere right now, and this top is only $22!

I got these zippered leggings in their last sale. Super comfy and only $20!

This beautiful Aztec print skirt is complete with a knitted pom pom detail, marked down to $32.

More collars please! And some detail to your usual Wednesday Adams look in this dress. It also comes in a pretty purple and on sale for $32.

Seriously debating on whether or not to get these shorts, marked down to $33.

This metallic shift dress keeps calling my name, and marked down to $45 it’s calling even louder.

And to close this edition of Caught my Eye Friday, here is the Queen Cat we must all bow down to.

Belated Xmas Ootd and Contest Winner!

Eeep It’s already mid January and I still haven’t posted any holiday outfits. I am behind on the times. Well after I got back from my cruise I got really sick, so I decided to spend christmas day curled up in bed in my pjs hugging a kitty while my family went out. So the only christmas outfit I have is from a friend’s pot luck dinner from the beginning of the month.

Outfit Details:
Top: Express size Large
Jacket: Torrid size 1
Skirt: Etsy seller PrototypeDesign size Medium
Belt: NY & Company size XL
Tights: We Love Colors size c/d
Earrings: Lia Sophia
Necklaces: Sanrio and Lia Sophia
Bracelet: Gift from mom
Shoes: ShoeDazzle

Let’s start with this skirt; if I could, I would wear it everyday. I first saw this Miu Miu inspired skirt on tumblr and knew it had to be mine. Well I first saw these Miu Miu shoes and knew they had to be mine…but without the price tag.

So the skirt was a very happy alternative. After conversing with the owner of Prototype Designs I was able to get a skirt in my size and I was in love. It was well worth the wait. Seriously if you have not checked this shop out yet, do it now. Along with cats, there are birds, bows, polka dots, florals, scarves, and everything else you’ve been craving.

The shoes, called Aubrey, from ShoeDazzle are the highest heels I have ever owned. I hemmed and hawed over ordering them, but they are just so similar to Jeffrey Campbell’s Litas, I just couldn’t let them pass. I have to say the height wasn’t too bad. I don’t think I could wear them if I had to stand or walk for a very long time, but they were perfect for a dinner party. I got a lot of compliments too and a lot of “I could never wear such high heels.” Me neither lol, but the width of the heel and the platform helped a lot. And I got to be taller than everyone!

Lost and Found

I recently won a contest over at Curves and Chaos for my choice of jewelry from the etsy store Found Objects. I really loved the idea of the art behind the jewelry, taking “found” recycled leather and creating into something beautiful, and I was so happy to have won! I chose the recycled leather multi strip earrings, I loved the feather effect the give, and the bright colors go great with any outfit. They are perfect for summer.

Floating On

(eeep I need to repaint my toes!)

Outfit Details
Cami: Express size L
Button up: NY & Company size XL
Jeans: Source of Wisdom via Torrid size 18
Hair clip: Torrid (from years ago)
Earrings: Claire’s
Necklace Etsy seller Beadix
Ring: Betsey Johnson via Ebay
Shoes: Naughty Monkey via Ideeli

I’ve had this top from Express since my college days, and I’ve been wrestling with whether or not to add it to my sell pile for awhile. I’ve always loved it, it was from back when lingerie style tops were very in, my mom thought I was crazy for wearing it out of bed. It’s so comfy and sexy though, I had always worn it a little more dressed up though, usually with a blazer over it for my sexy secretary look. But this time I tried to go with a more casual artsy feel pairing it with a long plaid top. After going through the pictures though, I think it might head to eBay, as I can;t stand it when you can see the outline of my belly button through a shirt, lol.

I bought this lovely watch necklace off of Etsy awhile ago and its one of my favorite casual jewelry pieces, but I do have to get the watch battery replaced. I absolutely love spider web inspired cover, which gives just a peak at the clock face inside. The store, Beadix, carries tons of different styles of these watch necklaces along with a big variety of vintage looking charms and even a few Hello Kitty pieces!


I literally gasped when I saw these Naughty Monkey sandals for sale on Ideeli, and for only 24 bucks to boot. For the most part I am overly happy with them, how can I not love anything with giant bows? But there is one thing I don’t understand with them. The ankle strap is huge on them, I’m going to have to get creative and make my own hole in them so they fit tighter. But like I am a big girl, and I seem to have this problem with shoes a lot; on the tightest hole the strap falls off of my ankle. Who out there has these extra long ankles that they are fitting these straps for; I can’t be alone in this problem, am I?
