Hello! This week’s Pretty Things List is brought to you by all things kitten!
One of my favourite new Erstwilder purchases is this adorable and perfectly proportioned Kitty Cat Scratch brooch. This little grey kitten comes with his own ball of yarn to play with and is available from Erstwilder for AU$34.95.
These black cat pantyhose are pretty cute, with the cat’s face sitting over your kneecap. Best suited to women sized 8 to 14, they’re currently available from Pinup Girl Clothing for US$12 (AU$15.75).
Also from Pinup Girl Clothing, this cat ear bowler hat isn’t too cutesy to wear as a grown up. With an internal elastic tie to fit it to your head perfectly and made of wool for comfort and longevity, it retails for US$34 (AU$44.50).
Lindy Bop has recently released a new range of blouses, and one of the winners is this Damson Kitten Blouse. Featuring grey and tabby kittens on a sky blue background with an adorable pussy bow tie and collar, you can pick it up directly from Lindy Bop. Alternatively, purchase from Aussie retailer Gwynnies for AU$45 in sizes 8 – 16, catering for a bust from 34 to 42 inches, and a waist from 26 to 34 inches.
If you’re after a dress to fulfill your kitten print dreams, there’s a few on offer, particularly from Voodoo Vixen. If you’re a smaller lady, Gwynnies currently has in stock this Voodoo Vixen Charlotte dress in burgundy with blue and black cat print. The crossover neckline is a nice detail. Available in sizes S – L (catering for a bust from 34 to 38 inches and a waist from 27 to 31 inches) for AU$85, it’s so pretty that I just wish they had it in stock in my size.
If you’re willing to buy directly from UK brand Voodoo Vixen, there’s a whole range of dresses and matching cardigans with cat prints. One that I’ve had my eye on for quite a while, originally in pink, is this new lilac colourway of the popular sleeveless Kitty dress. With cutouts at the neckline, front pockets and a contrasting black belt, the lilac colour is really fresh and the dress is quite rightly a popular choice. Voodoo Vixen currently has it in stock in sizes S – XL, which means if your bust is between 34 and 40 inches and your waist is between 27 and 33 inches, you’re in luck. Being a stretch fabric, there’s a little bit of leeway if you’re slightly over the top measurements. It’ll set you back 65 British Pounds, or AU$124.45 at current rates.
If you’re a bigger lady like me, you can try one of Voodoo Vixen’s other kitty cat dresses which they have in stock in their plus sizes. One that has always caught my eye and which I recently purchase is the Katniss dress in green. A very popular style among many pinups, the Katniss is perfect for Queensland winters, with three quarter length sleeves and a lightweight stretchy cotton fabric. With seriously generous front pockets and an attractive scalloped neckline, the Katniss dress is available from Voodoo Vixen in plus sizes 1XL, 2XL and 4XL right now for 66.99 British Pounds, or about AU$126 (the 1XL caters for a 42 inch bust and a 37.5 inch waist, the 2XL caters for a 45 inch bust and a 40.5 inch waist, and the 4XL caters for a 51 inch bust and a 46.5 inch waist). I recently purchased my Katniss dress from Aussie retailer Wild Kitty Clothing for AU$120, but you’ll have to be quick if you want one – they have just one left in stock, in a size 1XL.
