Cat Graphics

When it comes to animal inspired prints, we often primarily focus on leopard, cheetah, or zebra patterns and styles. However, this particular print caught my eye, because it was so odd and a bit different than anything that I typically wear. 

Weeks ago, I had almost forgotten about this outfit that I wore to work one day. Throughout the day I was greeted with puzzling expressions accompanied by either a fashionable nod or rather, a chortle of appreciation. I took it in stride and remained confident in my choice of “animal print” that day. 

I also wondered if this (dress) would be considered an animal print, even as unique and unconventional as it was. There were certainly far too many other important topics and tasks to worry about. But, for some reason there were several moments in the day where the conversation seemed to be taken over by artistic interpretations of peers and onlookers inspired by feline enchantment—a classifiable cat-attack! 

I’m not sure how, but I managed to accomplish so much that day. Perhaps, an art discussion and small distraction from the mound of high priority tasks is needed for every productive day.  

I mixed this outfit with vintage and modern elements with a favourite colour combination: navy and brown. It was also a balancing fix that I thought blended well with breaking up the allover print.

  41. OH MY GOD, I absolutely love this!! You're right, anything other than Cheetah or Leopard print is so unconventional, but I absolutely love this cat print. It's so damn charming, and I love the mixture of these vintage elements. Seriously, I'd wear this dress everyday. You make me want to buy it right now! Tres chic mi lady!
