Felines in fashion on the 2016 spring catwalk…
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 –

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!
Cynthia: Too cute! Marcy, I want this cat iPhone case by Leah Reena Goren!
Cynthia: Isn’t it pretty? I missed out on her Feline Karma Dress at Anthropologie last year (which I will never get over) and this is the same exact print.
Cynthia: She is such a talented illustrator and designer. So whimsical! So subtle! Oh, I love her stuff! In Fashion World Speak this would be called a “Must Have.” Look, Marcy. She even has it in white on black. Too cute!
Marcy (threateningly): You don’t have an iPhone, Cindy.
Cynthia (nonchalantly): So? I could… you know… get one… Maybe…
Marcy stares at Cynthia with disgust.
Cynthia: She’s going to be at the Renegade Craft Fair in downtown Los Angeles this weekend. I could just kind of… Oh, I don’t know… stop by and just look. You know, for research. Maybe…
Marcy: You would spend all of that money on an iPhone just to carry around the case? I think in Fashion World Speak you would be called a “Fashion Victim.” I wouldn’t push it since you are already a “Fashion Disaster.”
Cynthia (unconvincingly indignant): Well, I didn’t say I was going to buy it, Marcy.
Marcy stares at Cynthia with disgust and disbelief.
Marcy: Uh huh. Yeah.
