Calling all vintage cat collectors! Get ready to meet my the Norcrest Blue Cat–the most playful and precious set around! We’ve got a cute butter dish with kitty snoozing away on top, an adorable tea bag holder that will “Hold The Bag” for you, and even oil & vinegar cruets featuring the cutest little cats ever. Missing out would be simply purrr-culiar – don’t miss your chance to add this delightfully whimsical collection into your home today!
The Norcrest Blue Cat set is an absolute must-have for any ceramic collector! Manufactured in Japan mid to late 1950s and possibly early 1960s by the PY/Miyao company, it’s not as easy to come across these adorable kitty cat pieces – each one numbered on the bottom with a “CT”. Even luckier if you find them still featuring their original Norcrest foil label attached! These cats have been enchanting collectors since they first came out so do your best to get this elusive collection now before someone else does!
Oranges, reds, yellows, greens, black, wine, and even shades of pink are just some of the gorgeous autumnal colors nature creates for us to enjoy. This post is all about sharing some of these standout colors that I like to call eye candy because they evoke a pop of sweet joy when I wear them and see them.
A black dress can certainly be appropriate for Fall especially when it has a print as beautiful as this one with orangey-reds and turquoise blue-green. This dress is the Trixie Midnight Lily Swing Dress from Collectif Clothing in the UK. The dress is made from high quality cotton sateen and has a lovely sweetheart neckline and fitted waist for the 1940s-1950s bombshell look I love. The sleeves are ¾ and perfect for Fall time here in San Francisco.
My feline friendly outfit is another Fall favorite of mine. I love novelty prints and the border print on this skirt has the most adorable kitty cats. The skirt started off as a dress that ended up being too small and wouldn’t go over my chest so I had a seamstress convert it into a skirt for me and now I can wear it often. I like the green color of the skirt and paired it here with a bright orange sweater, leopard print purse and dark brown cardigan and I feel like I am wearing several autumnal colors in one outfit!!
It’s Fall time and I am out and about enjoying the season. I love Fall when the leaves turn colors and start to fall. There are still lots of plants and flowers in bloom too and it is such a pretty time of year.
I’ve been getting asked a lot what a work appropriate top is that has Pinup Rockabilly style since the many options on the market can be a little too cleavage reveling to wear to the office. So, I decided to post my review of the fabulous Estelle blouse by Heart of Haute and the top I am reviewing is in the Atomic Cat print.
First off, let’s talk about the style. The silhouette is dynamite!! Short sleeve with great shape, classic cut to flatter your curves, gathers along the shoulder and a higher neckline compliment with a perfect pussy bow for ultra feminine flair. There is no other blouse that is more conservative yet feminine and flatters a large bust or small bust equally. Because of the feminine cut, the blouse doesn’t have pulling between buttons so rest assured, there will be no buttons popping open. The blouse is incredibly comfortable, doesn’t wrinkle easily and makes you feel confident, gorgeous, and ready to take charge of a meeting, close a big deal, and handle those irate customers all in classic Pinup style.
The Estelle blouse from Heart of Haute pairs perfectly with swing skirts or pencil skirts and even wide leg trousers. The Estelle is so versatile. This blouse is a staple in my work wardrobe and the fabulous gals at Heart of Haute keep coming out with new prints and even sleeveless styles so you can toss on a sweet cardigan if the office gets a little chilly. I definitely will be adding many more Estelle’s to my collection. These tops tend to sell out quickly so hurry and get yours while sizes last!!
