You might have noticed that I have a tendency to gravitate toward clothing that matches my much-adored silver and white Maine Coon tabbies. Since they have come into my life, I have worn more grey than ever before, and started to allow the previously-forbidden animal print into my closet on occasion. I even bought glasses to match them!
I had my eye on this cat-matching sweater from the Venus catalog for a little while, and finally decided to go for it when it went on sale after Christmas. The picture showed is as more of a random, zebra-like animal print, so I was a little disappointed to find that it really is more like standard stripes, but with just a bit of a jagged edge here and there. Still, I like it fairly well. It has a bit of silver metallic in it, which I love.
I had a couple of different ideas on how to wear it. I was in the mood to throw in a little color, so I went with an aubergine camisole and left the bottom couple of buttons undone to show more of the purple. I wasn’t sure I liked the shapes created in that look. It seemed a little sloppy, so…
…I buttoned up the bottom and added a belt to draw attention to my waist. Yes, the second version makes me happier, although I still wish there was more purple showing. I didn’t realize until I started typing this that I had the perfect purple belt in my closet all along! At least I have the problem solved for next time.
And here are the little angles that inspire my madness!
