DRESS:Hello Harriet HEADSCARF: ASOS SOCKS: American Apparel TOTE:Hello Harriet

Long time no see! As always when I disappear for periods of time, I've been buried under work/stress BUT I can finally blog again now that I've fought my way out of it! ;___; What better way to kick things off with a handmade pink cat dress?!

The dress in question being this darling number by Hello Harriet. I've been following Harriet for years now (!) and have always been in love with her drawings of the original grumpy cat. Harriet recently expanded her line of cat adorned pieces to include dresses. And she sent me one.

Made in a smock silhouette and covered in Harriet's signature kitties, this is without a doubt one of the cutest dresses in my wardrobe! The first smock dress I have owned, it has definitely converted me - it's just such an easy, playful shape! This dress is also really beautifully made and I can imagine it styled in so many ways - I think I'm going to wear it with a detachable collar next!

I paired it with a tote Harriet was generous enough to send me as well - it has a grouchy looking cat saying "no"…! Hearts in my eyes!

Lately I've been wearing my makeup a lil different! I've been trying to teach myself how to do eyeshadow ~looks, and I'm super into this dramatic purple eyeshadow inspired by 60s icon Catherine Deneuve. AND I finally taught myself how to apply false eyelashes and it is game changing. Anyhoo, sorry if this is boring but I'm super excited about it haha :'))

Super excited to be blogging again and I'll be back with more outfits soooon!! Love you guys <3
