*what does the cat say*

forever 21 sweater, cat sweater, meow sweater, black white stars, fuzzy meow sweater

nothing much to report up here in the great white north.  still frigid & frozen.  hahaha!  what a surprise!  not straying far either from my daily outfit staple of sweater, skirt, double tights/leggings & boots.  at least funny, fuzzy sweaters like this keep things a little more lively in this “cat”-astrophic cold.  (hahaha! like that?)

*catwoman in the country*

forever 21 bats cats, catwoman sweater, catwoman, all black, leather skirt, spike barrette, spike hair, spike hair accessories, sneaker wedges

still hanging out with my in-laws in pennyslvania :)  even though i always tend to get a little antsy in the country (i.e. suburbs), for this particular visit, i’m actually enjoying waking up late, visiting with other family friends, sitting on a chair crocheting & just eating all the time.

i’m also enjoying kind of more a lax dressing mentality…easy sweaters with catwoman’s face on it (via the forever 21 bats & cats collection) & sneaker wedges for quick dashes to the grocery store.  plus my new DIY spike hair clips to keep my unkempt hair out of my face!  easy peasy ^_^

i thought it funny i mix in my cosplaying with my personal style.  i never imagined a major realtor like forever 21 would also dabble into the comic book geeky world…especially with such iconic characters like batman & catwoman.  i’m quite impressed :)  i have some of my favorites, like the ones above, already on order…just in time for halloween, other comic cons & all things for when i need an everyday costume ^_^

i’ve been known to get decked out in full cosplay every now & again ^_^  unlike my husband, i’m a free spirit & love costumes!!!  sadly, can’t go into the office or to the grocery store in full kimono every day, now can i?  *sad face*  so today, i decided to have a tiny itty bit of cosplay fun with another favorite strong female character…a “catwoman" inspired look, while at the same time participating in IFB’s latest link project.  simple, but purrrrrrfect ;)

*simplifying with clean lines part 2*

Photobucket

talk about simplifying! i didn’t think i’d wear another mostly white outfit with black lines/piping *this* soon…haha!  my clear trench coat was such a hit yesterday with my friends & with it still being rainy, yet warm enough for such a thin cover up…wanted to showcase it for today!  hence, the all white outfit underneath to further emphasize the clean, sharp lines.  i love clear umbrellas, so when i saw the runway photos of the *clear* rain coats during the burberry show last year, i flipped out!  how cute…how outrageous…and how unattainable!  so of course when i got wind that forever 21 was putting out their own version (collaboration with the hello kitty brand…my fave…no less), i knew it would be mine! it’s definitely fun to wear, although i could never ninja up behind people like i usually do with it’s noisy crinkly-ness…hahaha!  still, isn’t the black piping a hoot? it’s almost like i’m wearing a drawn in stick figure version of a coat than an actual piece of clothing. well, with this fun take on a trench coat…rainy days will *never* get me down ^_^

*hello kitty fever…i haz it*

i’m a sucker for hello kitty…and no, not cos it’s hip or cool now, but because i grew up with her (& her friends) as a kid.  i think living in hawaii & being closer to japan than the rest of the US, that kinda cutesy stuff was just always around.  i remember having the little plastic jewelry boxes for my little plastic hello kitty jewelry, the little combs, brushes, hand mirrors.  you name it!  i even proudly carried my lunch my senior year of high school still in a nylon hello kitty lunch tote.  still got it, in fact…it’s in a drawer holding marking pens & colored pencils :)  

fast forward to an adult…nothing’s changed.  come to my house & i’ll likely cook you rice with my hello kitty pink rice cooker or make you hello kitty face shaped pancakes :)  i even have the ultimate tribute…a hello kitty tattoo ^_^  so *of course* i’ve been all over the hello kitty collection for forever 21 that just came out!  there’s a lot of the t-shirts & leggings & stuff that look very tweeny, but thankfully there’re cardigans (like this one) & sweaters that are appropriate for us more *cough* mature ladies.  LOVE IT!  i’ll be an 80-year-old woman & wearing a hello kitty muu-muu & sporting a hello kitty walker…hahaha!

also, another recent find is this great tortoiseshell (well, really plastic) cuff watch.  i love the bold goldtone face & easy on & off hinged design.  even if it dies soon or the battery goes kaput, it’ll still look good as a bracelet.  not bad for $16.99 at target, huh?
