Channeling Your Inner Spicoli With Vans Cat Sneakers For The ASPCA

Vans ASPCA collection

Cynthia:  This is like so totally rad.  Vans has launched a sneaker collection to raise awareness for the ASPCA. There’s cat sneakers. And dog sneakers too.

Cynthia:  The ASPCA is the American Society For The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Gotta love an organization that fights for the rights of animals to be treated humanely.

 

Vans ASPCA Cat Shoe

 

Cynthia:  So what do you think, Marcy? Wouldn’t I look too cool for school in a pair of cat Vans?

Marcy:  Are you a skate punk?

Cynthia:  No.

Marcy:  Are you a surfer dude or dudette?

Cynthia:  No.

Marcy:  Are you Sean Penn?

Cynthia:  No. Ha. Obviously.

Marcy:  Well, then. As Mr. Hand said to Spicoli, “You’re on dangerous ground here. You’re causing a major disturbance on my time.”

Cynthia:  Marcy. That makes no sense.

Marcy:  Oh yes it does.

Cynthia looks puzzled trying to figure out what on earth Marcy means.

Marcy:  It means NO , Cindy! You would NOT look too cool for school because you would be the schoolteacher. You’re Mr. Hand.

Cynthia:  Oh. Bummer. I wanted to be Jeff Spicoli in my Cat Vans. I wanted to be a righteous dude and battle some humongous waves.

Marcy:  Don’t we all, Cindy. Don’t we all.

Dear Creatures And Their Darling (Rescue) Cat, Mouse

Mouse the Cat of Dear Creatures

Cynthia:  So, I realize that this picture is well over a year old. It’s from the Dear Creatures Autumn 2012 Lookbook. But, it is new to me and I just love it.

Besides the super fab 1960’s airline stewardess mod vibe (with cat ears!), the cat in the photo was gallantly rescued by the Dear Creatures team when it showed up at their offices in Los Angeles. They named the lucky guy Mouse and now look at him – he’s a  fashion muse AND super model!

 

Dear Creatures Cat Sweater 2012

Marcy:  Mouse! What kind of a name is Mouse for a cat? For his sake, I hope it’s short for Mouse Killer.

Cynthia:  I think it’s cute. Gosh, I wish I would have got my grubby little hands on that sweater last year. It’s darling.

Dear Creatures clothing is delightfully quirky, wonderfully whimsical, and eternally optimistic. Zooey Deschanel is practically their spokesperson since she wears their clothes all the time on TV. Think smock tops, peter pan collars, short sleeved secretary blouses, pleated skirts, and mod mini dresses.

Marcy:  It sounds like cat lady couture.

Cynthia:  But what really won me over is that an abandoned cat in Los Angeles is off the mean and desperate streets and now has a warm home and lots of love. Shall we?

Marcy raises her Friskies can. Cynthia raises her martini glass.

Marcy and Cynthia:  Cheers to Dear Creatures for living up to their name and proving just how dear our dear creatures can be.
