Here, Kitty Kitty

July 19, 2015

SuthinGirl is a longtime fan of cat-eyed sunnies and leopard print anything, so I am loving the new feline-inspired clothing, makeup and accessories trend. From Stella McCartney’s gorgeous cat-print blouses to Tory Burch’s Cat’s Meow Lip and Cheek Tint and Eyeshadow Palette to Kate Spade’s newest collection…kitties are literally popping up everywhere!

I’ve selected accessories, shoes and handbags from Kate Spade, Charlotte Olympia, Elena Ghisellini and Marc Jacobs that provide the purrfect touch of pretty kitty mystique without wearing the look head to tail…I mean toe!


For years now I’ve been prowling around Italian designer Elena Ghisellini’s feline-inspired luxury collection of handbags (see below), so I immediately pounced on Kate Spade’s new collection aptly named The Cat’s Meow. It reminds me of high-end whimsical designers Sophia Webster and Charlotte Olympia, but costs a lot less.

Kate Spade’s jewelry holds up really well across time. I have two gold tone bangles from years ago that are in frequent rotation and they look as fresh as the day I purchased them.

Vectra 1

Vectra Ultimate Apparel Protector $16

Before you step one foot outside in your new fancy feline footwear, I implore you! Treat those babies with Vectra; it’s the ultimate apparel protector for shoes, handbags, suede and more!! I’ve been using it for years to protect my investments and it’s never let me down. LOVE me some Vectra!

You don’t have to feel the least bit guilty about liberally applying Vectra to your fabric because it’s not harmful to humans, animals or the planet when used with proper ventilation (I spray mine outside on the patio). When your fabric dries, Vectra is non-toxic and safe to humans, animals and the planet!


Love! Covet! Adore! In my opinion, she’s the absolute pick of the litter.
