My Kitty Is Untamed

My Kitty is untamed - she sticks out her tongue at everyone! I suppose thats why I like her.  I first Spotted Kitty at Goodwill right before I moved to New York.  She was marked  $1.99 since she was missing a chain but I thrifted the perfect solid gold twist chain that same day for $.99 cents.  Totally worth every penny

Since Kitty and I are pretty much partners in crime it's only fair that I dress the part from time to time.  I channeled my inner mischevious bad-kitty with my trusty thrifted vintage Ray Ban cat eye sunglasses (last seen here).  These pretty kitties were only $2.99 whoops $1.60 at Salvation Army! How I landed my paws on these I'll never know...fate?
While I'd love to go full-on Cat Women in a leather jumpsuit, the next closest thing I could thrift were 100% Leather Shorts by Don't Stop! $4.99 from Goodwill. Leather shorts, trademarked on the runways by Chloe, are the most unexpectedly flexible wardrobe staple. I find them easy to wear day or night even though at first the "all-weather leather" trend seen on the Spring 2010 runways seemed like a contradicting concept.  To answer LoveBrownSugar's question, I think Leather Shorts are fierce NOT foolish!

I paired the shorts with my H&M Leopard button-up, thrifted Leopard Pony Hair belt by Tanner $3 from Salvation Army, thrifted Black Pebble Suede Envelope Clutch with Leopard Pony Hair by Sven Design San Francisco $6.99 from Goodwill, and faux-leather platform thigh-high boots from Forever21. I tried to cram as much thrifted leopard print and leather as I could into one outfit without it screaming "Love Motel meets Dominatrix".  Hopefully I'm a touch classier than that! Just a touch.

  4. love the thrifting, work it girl, and the language you use to describe it all! I really like the outfit. how many hours did it take to find everything?

    patience. I had to look that up today and look at the first definition it gave me:
    1 the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset : you can find bargains if you have the patience to sift through the dross.

    @Rhiannon - Thanks!! This is all from three separate shopping trips actually. I always wander in the thrift store so probably 3 hours...and 1.5 as spend shopping.

    Also, I love that definition. Im soo using it. Patience is key when you thrift. Hope all is well. xoxo
