Cat Shoes Reconsidered

Marcy:  Cindy, you did not do your research the other day. I found lots of cool girls wearing cat shoes. And they look fantastic.

Cynthia:  Oh wow! You’re right, those girls look really cool in their cat shoes. Hmmm… this is always the way it is with fashion for me. I “hate it” at first and then I “kind of want it” and then I “have to have it.” Pleated drop-crotch pants come to mind. And oxfords. And printed denim. (starting to panic) Should I reconsider my ban on cat shoes, Marcy?

Marcy considers it for a minute.

Marcy:  No. Sorry. It won’t work out after all.

Cynthia:  Why?

Marcy:  Because we forgot the common denominator here.

Cynthia:  What?

Marcy:  All of those girls are “girls.”  You… well… are not.

Cynthia:  This is true. I don’t even flinch anymore when I’m called “ma’am” at the grocery store. But still, look at cute Taylor Swift! And uber cool fashionista, Alexa Chung! They look SO GREAT in their cat shoes! (gasp) I WANT TO LOOK LIKE ALEXA CHUNG IN CAT SHOES!! I could!

Marcy:  You could not.

Cynthia (wide eyed, manic, determined):  I could try!

Marcy, the Cat, looks at Cynthia, the Person, with a half smile and sympathetic nod that is especially reserved for those who have fallen into the abyss of Cat Ladydom.

    You would look so very cute in cat shoes! They were made for you! And those pictures of all of those girls wearing them made me want cat shoes and I do not even own a cat! Seriously, Marcy is wrong! Cat shoes are great! And you could totally rock them.

      LOL! It really is bizarre how I will hate a new fashion thing at first and then fall in love with it later. This recently happened with coral lipstick and is starting to happening with pleated cropped pants. I am going to take your advice and NOT listen to the cat! But oh my gosh, Jenni, those Charlotte Olympia shoes are $595. AAAAAccckkk!

      Okay! For $595, you could get your cat to make you some shoes. No, no, no. That is just not right. It makes me sad. Hopefully it will take off and there will be a cheaper version!

      Hee hee hee! Marcy would want me to pay her!!

      Delia's and Pacsun and some random brands on Amazon have them for under $30 so I may try that. I could never spend almost $600 on a pair of shoes. Never. Just. Yikes!

      Sayaka! I tried commenting on your blog yesterday and couldn't get myself signed in. I still sometimes get confused with this whole technology thing (LOL) and was going to try again today.

      I loooooved that Ombre dress you were wearing. You are just breathtaking in it! Beautiful photography too! Always love your style!

      I have been reading your blog ever since you popped up on EA's blogroll. It's how I met Jenni of Gnome Lover. Hope it's okay that I've got you on my blogroll!

      Thank you so much for stopping by here! yay!
