Black Velvet and Leopard

Welcome to our wall of velvet paintings! Since I was feeling sassy after getting a hair trim, so I decided to slip on this vintage 60s leopard lounge dress over a pair of cheetah print leggings and gold sandals. The gold sandals were picked up at an estate sale for $3, as I have a 'thing' for gold shoes and was excited to find ones that I really like.

I bought this dress at a local antique mall for $15 and it looks like someone hand sewed large black sequins all over, so it made me love it even more! The asymmetrical hem and flowy nylon fabric makes this lounge dress wonderful for.....well, lounging! Vintage leopard print lounge wear/lingerie by Vanity Fair is very desirable and collectible, yet I love it because it's sexy and leopard!!!

So, what better place to show off this leopard lounger than to pose against our wall-o-velvet?
(PS-The Tiki painting was painted by Derek)

It Was A Kreepsville Sorta Day

Yesterday was a casual look for work, which I was happy that I choose pants and a t-shirt as we were super busy. The running around sorta busy, but I always love my job! 

I'm wearing a Vampire t-shirt and skull rose pin from Kreepsville 666, who is one of my favorite kitschy and creepy brands. I paired the t-shirt with a favorite stretch leopard blazer, pointy boots and assorted accessories sprinkled within the outfit. Never enough accessories...NEVER!!!!

But wait! There is more Kreepsville!

New products we got in the shop!

I thought up a blog idea while I was at work yesterday and came home to shoot a preview for the new Kreepsville 666 items. Nine o'clock at night and Derek's out in the garage working on the Tiki bar and I'm upstairs shooting photos. Weirdo's. Hehe! 

The little crossbones are hair clips that I put on the dress to add a little sumthin' sumthin', I think they work out quite well! I also have the larger version of the Kattitude bag and I think the little makeup clutch will make a great companion as a travel set! 

So here's the Cats Like Us Kreepsville 666 preview blog, all items are awesome and will be available next week!

Thank you for reading!

Hieroglyphics and Bats : Jawbreaker Clothing

I'm always happy to team up with some of my favorite brands that already live in my closet, like Jawbreaker Clothing. I picked out the Bella Cropped Sweatshirt (it feels like a knit), as I wanted to challenge myself on how I would style a cropped top and well, there are bats all over the top! 

I am wearing the cropped sweater over a black tank top tucked into a vintage pleated skirt, worn with a studded belt and leather bat belt (more bats!), spider web stockings and my vintage winklepicker boots. 

The sweater is super cozy and I plan to wear it over some dresses for added warmth during this weird Spring we've been having. Can it please stop randomly snowing?!

I really, really, REALLY like the hieroglyphic-inspired graphics on the Hieroglyph Dress and swooned when I took the dress out of the package. Then, I got a sense of panic when I realized how form-fitting the dress is (which I knew that when I was looking at the website) and got nervous! 

But, when I put the dress on I instantly felt sassy. The cotton dress is very comfortable and it hugs my body perfectly! I've paired the dress with tattered stockings, added a few leather belts, winklepicker booties and threw on a cropped cardigan and black denim vest.

The Egyptian Bast patch on the back of vest is perfect for this outfit.

I really dig Jawbreaker Clothing, we carry the brand at work, so that's how I discovered their awesome styles along with their sister company Voodoo Vixen! They both get the Coffin Kitsch seal of approval, hehe!

Thank you for reading!

P.S-Of course I have to have one outtake!

Wooooo! XOXO

Kitsch Picks : The Oblong Box Shop

I am excited about these skirts from The Oblong Box Shop! I had been checking their website on and off waiting for these novelty print skirts to be available, because... you know, Tiki! I treated myself to one of the skirts and I'm excited to wear and share it on the blog. I usually don't get this excited about new clothing (to stalk a website), so I jumped at the chance when they became available to order.

In other news: we've started working on our Tiki bar in the garage.

I gave my panoramic feature on my phone a try.

We have a lot of work ahead of us, but our crafty and thrifty ways make us a dynamic duo of crazy!!!! Muahahaaaaaaa!

Little Pineapples

I didn't get a chance to wear this eShakti pineapple sleeveless shirt dress last season, so this was yesterday's work outfit. I paired the dress with a thrifted short sleeve cardigan, slim belt and vintage wooden earrings and bangles, along with my Y.R.U crossbone loafers. 

It felt really weird being so exposed! I did get cold during the middle of the day, but lucky we have a lot of clothes to choose from at work. Let's just say I added another black cardigan to the collection. Hehe! I did try to embrace the 60 degree weather, but a chill is still in the air and I'm still going to wear stockings and/or tights until it's unbearable. 

A sense a theme of eShakti shirt dresses for the week.....

.......but that's okay, because PINEAPPLES!

Have a great Friday everyone and thank you for the well wishes from my previous blog.  Luckily I don't stay bummed out too long. I'm back to my goofy self. *Wink Wink*
