Cat Lady Covets: Cat Crepe Blouse

H&M cat blouse

I love a good cat shirt, and this one grabbed my attention for its cool color combo and low price (only $15!). The breezy crepe fabric makes it easy to wear right now while it’s warm outside, and also dresses it up a bit (not your basic cotton top). There’s even a little chest pocket that would be perfect for storing extra kitty treats.

Cat Lady Covets: Kitty Kitchen Timer

Kitty Kitchen Timer

There always seem to be occasions where I need to time things in the kitchen and I automatically reach for my phone to set a timer. But this little kitty timer would do the job just as easily and also look very cute sitting on the counter. What a purrfect little kitchen gadget!

*FASHION ALERT! This adorable and sophisticated top I blogged about awhile ago is ON SALE now!! I mean, I think there’s no excuse not to get it now, right?!

Cat Lady Covets: Cat Trinket Dishes

So technically these are called Chopstick Rest Plates in their online store, but I really think these charming ceramic cat dishes could be used for almost anything. They’re perfect for holding tiny treats, resting a spoon or tea bag, as a ring dish…even as a small dish for your cat’s moist food. There are two styles – Calico cat or Striped cat (shown below) and retail for $12 each. What would you use them for?

Cat Lady Covets: The Cat’s Meow Necklace

The cat's meow necklace

I’m a big fan of Kate Spade’s whimsical designs, as you can tell from my coverage on the blog (here and here). I even own a couple of Kate Spade accessories, my favorite being this necklace I bought for myself after I got married. I’ve worn that necklace to death, where the gold plating has finally started wearing away.

But HOW CUTE is this necklace?!! I’m in love with it, and think I need to add it to my collection. It’s dainty enough to wear daily (see below on model), and I love the play on words. It would also make a thoughtful gift for the cat lover in your life.

Cat Lady Covets: Kitten Heels

Logan heels - Kate Spade

These shoes give new meaning to the name “kitten heels”….because they literally have kittens on the heels! And it’s a black cat to boot (we are obviously partial to them). Kate Spade always does cheeky accessories in a very classy way, and we’re excited they’ve decided to venture into the feline kingdom with their new line. What do you think, would you wear them?

Cat Lady Covets: Clio Cat Hair Pin

Clio Cat Hair Pin

I’ve seen many different iterations of cat hair clips, but really love the sleek modern design of this one in particular. It doesn’t look like it would hold a lot of hair back, but is perfect for  pinning bangs to the side or as a fun detail to an updo. How would you style this?

Cat Lady Covets: Zodiac Cat Pins

zodiac cats

zodiac3_1024x1024 copyWe recently broached the topic of horoscopes for cats with coverage of the new app ZodiaCat, but what about cats as the actual signs of the zodiac?

One of our fav cat illustrators, Catsu, has drawn and created enamel pins with cats representing each sign of the zodiac. I’m a Libra, and love the representation of food bowls as the scales – all of the signs are so cleverly drawn!. These would make a great birthday present for a horoscope and cat lover – gift them with their appropriate birthday month cat! All pins are available here, as well as lots of other fun cat art and products!

Cat Lady Covets: Cat Embossing Rolling Pin

Do I have any followers that love to bake out there? How fun is this rolling pin?! I had never even heard of embossing rolling pins until a coworker brought this to my attention, but now I’m imagining all of the cute cookies I could make with this. The best part is that you don’t even have to be skilled at decorating cookies at all (no tedious icing here) – all you have to do is roll the pin over the dough and voila! Insanely cute and easy to make cookies.

I loved this pin in particular because of the expressive eyes on the cats and cute thought bubbles filled with mice and hearts, but if you search “cat rolling pin” in Etsy you’d be surprised how many pop up! Ooh and I just read that you can use this pin on clay too – would be great for making little Christmas ornaments with kids, or little bowls/ring dishes lined with this pattern. So many options. Would you give this embossing rolling pin a try? Do you have any other ideas on how to use it?

Cat Lady Covets: Peeking Cat Pillow

Black cat pillow - H&M

Throw pillows are a fun and inexpensive way too to infuse personality into your home – and if it’s “crazy cat lady” personality, all the better. We love cat pillows here at Tux the Dapper Gent (as seen here and here), but this one in particular reminded us of Tux. Just the other day we captured an adorable pic of him peeping around the corner of a chair (see below) – doesn’t he look like the pillow cat, peeping around the side of the fabric? We also like that the graphic on this pillow continues around the back as well so you don’t have an incomplete kitty. You could even put two together like shown above to form a whole cat, or keep lining them all up to form a continuous line of cats!

Cat Lady Covets: Cat-Eye Kit

Cat-eye kit

Nicky Hilton for SmashboxI love a good cat-eye. It can be toned down for an everyday look (my go-to makeup choice) or really glammed up for a night out. For those that are new to the cat-eye, it can be especially helpful to have a ready-made kit that gives you everything you need to create the look. That’s the reason I love these new Nicky Hilton for Smashbox kits – they give you 3 basic kits to choose from:

London = Graphic (purple liner and eyeshadow for a fun, colorful look)
L.A. = Natural (brown, neutral palette)
New York = Classic (black liner and eyeshadow for a darker, smoky eye)

And did I mention it all comes in a so-cute-I-can’t-even-stand-it cat bag (that doubles as a clutch)? I mean, that’s reason enough to buy it if you ask me. But Smashbox itself is a really great line and the makeup is quality (always important in a successful cat-eye).
