Moon Kitty Sweatshirt

“Moon Kitty” Lightweight Dolman Sleeved Sweatshirt

Cynthia:  I am picky about wearing cats on my clothes. I want a cat print that is cool. Interesting. Even classy. Or at least, not garish or clown like. But still … fun!

Marcy:  And you think this sweatshirt fits the bill?

Cynthia:  Yes. I do. It’s by an artsy San Francisco company called Fluffy Co. Their products are Made in the USA and they are committed to sustainability. Gosh, I love buying a home made product. It makes me feel helpful.

 

“Moon Kitty” Lightweight Dolman Sleeved Sweatshirt

Marcy:  By the way, sweatshirts are “in” this season.

Cynthia:  Really? How do you know that?

Marcy:  Uh… I have a fashion blog.

Cynthia:  No need for sarcasm.

Marcy:  Obviously, one of us needs to know what’s trending and what’s not. Congratulations on accidentally being in style. I never thought it would happen.

Cynthia (brightly):  Thank you! The sweatshirt is super soft, has a banded waist, and 3/4 length dolman sleeves. I like that the length of the sweatshirt is short as it goes great with my high waisted jeans. This is not a sloppy tee!

 

 

Marcy (purring):  I like it!

Cynthia:  Yay! You can also get this print on a T-shirt

Marcy purrs even louder.

Cynthia:  And, if cats aren’t your thing –

Marcy:  Gasp! Marcy stops purring. How dare you!

Cynthia:  FluffyCo also has a birds on a bicycle print, a wild horses print, and a solar system print (which includes Pluto!). See below.



Marcy (disgusted):  Birds, Cindy? Really? Birds are for eating, not wearing.

Marcy swishes her tail back and forth still angry about Cynthia’s cat comment.

Marcy:  And Pluto’s not a planet.

Cynthia:  It used to be… when I was a kid.

Marcy:  You know, if you are going to turn our blog post into a sweatshirt ad you should at least let everyone know that all the proceeds from the affiliate links go to cat rescue.

Cynthia: Absolutely. As stated on my sidebar, any commission made from affiliate links goes to animal rescue!

So what do you say, Marcy? Wanna sashay with me out in the sunshine in my moon kitty sweatshirt?

Marcy:  Yeah. Let’s go look for some birds on bicycles.

Cat Fashion at the Los Angeles Feline Film Festival

Lindsay and Sabrina

It’s 10 pm on Sunday evening. Three hours past Friskies o’clock. Marcy stares at the front door, glowering and whipping her tail back and forth.

At 10:05 pm Cynthia bursts through the door with a bagful of cat loot and an iPhone full of pictures.

Cynthia (hysterically):  Marcy! The Los Angeles Feline Film Festival was even more awesome than expected!

Marcy:  Oh yeah.

Cynthia:  Yeah! It was… epic! Just…epic!

Cynthia hurriedly fumbles for her phone while talking a mile a minute.

Cynthia:  OMG. You should have seen all of the cat outfits. I was going to do a proper post first about the festival but I can’t wait. Let’s look at all the cute cat attire right now.

Cynthia drops her phone.

Cynthia:  Oops.

Marcy:  How about you get a grip. How about you feed me first.

Cynthia:  Here – snack on this. Cynthia throws Marcy a treat packet. Natural Balance was there handing out yummy cat food samples.

Cynthia retrieves her phone and enthusiastically shoves it in Marcy’s face.

Cynthia:  Check out. These. Awesome Cat Outfits!

Cynthia with cat humans from Pussy & Pooch

Cynthia:  Everyone was so cute. And so friendly. And so … happy.  Maybe instead of giving people Prozac, doctors should prescribe Puddy Cats!

Marcy rushes to hide under the couch.

Cynthia:  What’s wrong?

Marcy:  Those are the scariest pictures I’ve ever seen.

Cynthia:  Really? Why?

Marcy:  I thought you were alone in your insanity.

Cynthia:  Nope, Marcy. There are thousands and thousands and thousands of us crazy cat people out there. I think we are going to make the world a happier place. One cat at a time.

Marcy:  And armed in cat ears?

Cynthia:  Yes!

Marcy:  Oh my gatos.

What Do Cat Fashion And Lil Bub Have In Common?

Cats in Clothes by Heather Mattoon
an exhibitor at LA Feline Film Festival

Cynthia:  Only that I will be covering both at the LA Feline Film Festival this Sunday at Exposition Park.

I can’t wait to see all the cat outfits on the Cat Walk at 6:55pm. And, I get to interview Lil Bub and her “Dude”. Woo hoo!

Lil Bub
Celebrity Guest at LA Feline Film Festival

Marcy:  You’re going to meet Lil Bub?

Cynthia:  Yes. Are you sure you don’t want to come with me, Marcy? You could ask Lil Bub how she got so famous. Maybe she could give you some pointers.

Marcy:  I don’t need pointers from her. She’s not a cat.

Cynthia:  Ummm… Yes she is.

Marcy:  No. She’s not.

Cynthia:  Yes. She is.

Marcy stares at Cindy and whips her tail back and forth.

Marcy:  Then why – after all these years – does she still have those cute kitten features you humans go gaga over?

Cynthia:  Because she has genetic mutations that make her a “perma-kitten.” Plus, she’s a dwarf kitty which means her legs are shorter than her body.

Marcy:  Right. And she doesn’t have teeth and can’t jump or meow.

Cynthia:  That’s right. And she’s got extra toes on each paw as well as opposable thumbs on her front paws.

Marcy:  SHE HAS OPPOSABLE THUMBS AND YOU STILL THINK SHE’S A CAT?

Cynthia looks confused.

Marcy:  OPPOSABLE THUMBS, CINDY. OPPOSABLE THUMBS.

Cynthia:  Oh. You’re just jealous.

Marcy:  Hmpf…

Cynthia:  Besides, Lil Bub and cat fashion, the LA Feline Film Festival will also have music by Pink Nylon, Bullet Made Statues, Alex Nestor, Lucy Langlas, and Tarra Layne. 

There will be cat art, cat supply vendors, cat adoptions, comedy by Kate Aagesen, and a Q&A by Will Bradon of Henri Le Chat Noir.

Marcy:  Gasp. My French boyfriend, Henri Le Chat Noir, is going to be there too?

Cynthia:  No. Just his filmmaker. I think Henri hates other cats and cat fanatics as much as you do.

Marcy:  Sigh… he’s sooooo dreamy and soooooo French.

 

*Hey Awesome Readers!

Cynthia exuberantly dances around the living room in her cat ears. Marcy is asleep in her sunspot.

Marcy:  What? I’m busy. I’m absorbing the D.

Cynthia:  Organikat + Walker’s  LA Feline Film Festival is almost here! Woo Hoo!

Marcy races off to hide under the couch.

Cynthia:  What’s wrong?

Marcy (terrified) There are 10,000 people like you? Ten thousand catifyibly insane cat fanatics? All wearing fake cat ears and gushing about gatos? All ten thousand of you … in the same place?




Cynthia:  YES! Isn’t that AWESOME?

Cynthia obliviously resumes dancing in her cat ears.

Marcy:  No. It’s terrifying. What if you all spontaneously combust from feline fever?

The Cat’s On The Bag

Organic Cotton Canvas Totes with Leather Handles – Made in the USA (Cat Noir)

Cynthia:  Anthropologie has had enormous success with their animal print bags lately. The brilliant Bunny bag, the fun French Bulldog bag, and most recently, the foxy Fox Bag.

Marcy:  Where’s the cat carryall?

Cynthia:  I was wondering the exact same thing!

Marcy:  Anthropologie needs to step it up.

Cynthia:  Too late. I took matters into my own hands and found this cat bag from FluffyCo on Amazon.

Marcy:  Gasp!

Cynthia:  What?

Marcy (outraged):  You got a Penelope bag? Really, Cindy? Really?

Cynthia:  Aw… no… it’s just … it’s just a … a… a cute cat bag! Sigh. Why does everything have to get so political around here all the time?

Marcy (pouting):  Nobody loves me anymore. It’s all about cute Penelope Kitten.

Marcy stalks off to hide under the couch.

Cynthia:  C’mon Marcy. That’s not true.

Silence.

Cynthia:  Hey! I know! We’ll make our own Marcy Very Much tote bags.

Marcy (poking her head out hopefully):  Oh yeah?

Cynthia:  Yeah! Why not?

Marcy:  Can I design it?

Cynthia:  Of course.

Marcy runs around in circles she’s so excited.

Marcy:  I want my logo, my paw print, scratch marks with red artistic blood stains on one side, and an Andy Warhol Campbell Soup style Friskies can on the other side. It’s going to be so cool. We’ll be bigger than Louis Vuitton and Chanel!

*Don’t know about the blood stains, but we will have a Marcy bag soon! 

UPDATE:  We’ve got our own Marcy Very Much bags and pouches! See below and click here for our shop with lots of other cat merch for humans!

 
Update: Looks like the Cat Noir Bag has sold out! So happy that a wonderful reader got the last one. I will update the link when it comes back in stock. In the meantime, the cat is also on a Tshirt by the same company. Right here.

Growling About The Gatto Dress At Anthropologie

4130015125617_069_b

Cynthia:  Grrrr… I wish Anthropologie would come out with a super awesome cat dress. This new cat dress by Tabitha for Anthro just doesn’t cut it for me.

Marcy:  What’s your problem?

Cynthia:  It doesn’t even look like a dress. It looks like a shirt with a skirt that doesn’t quite match. Plus, it’s too short. Same with the Chaton Shift Dress from last year. And Peter Som’s Cheshire Dress the year before that. And the Feline Karma Dress the year before that. Grrrrr….

I want a perfect knee length Anthro cat dress that I can wear for years and look super cool and quirky and not like a crazy cat lady. These cat dresses just aren’t … it.

Marcy: You’re so picky.

Cynthia:  You are saying that I’m too picky?

Marcy:  If the shoe fits.

Cynthia:  Yeah, well, I still haven’t found an affordable cat shoe that I like either.

Marcy:  So design your own.

Cynthia (perking up):  Ohhhh. Interesting idea, Marcy. Hmmm… In the meantime, I can take this cat blouse from ModCloth –

 

 

Cynthia:  And pair it with my ASOS black and white striped skirt –

 

ASOS Black/White Striped Skirt
similar here, here, and here

Cynthia:  To recreate the Gatto Dress as separates so that not only is it less expensive, I have many more outfit options. Problem solved.

Marcy (sarcastically):  You’re a styling genius. Although obviously colorblind.

Cynthia:  Thank you! However, I still would love for Anthropologie to design the perfect cat dress at some point in my lifetime.

Marcy (smugly):  I have nine lifetimes.

 

*Note from Cynthia:  If anyone tries this dress on, please let me know. I’d love to know your thoughts. Maybe I’m completely wrong and this dress is super cute!
