A cat is for life, not just for dresses...but it makes a darn good print!

When on holiday in Spain, I saw this beauty of a print (practically) waving at me through the window of Mango and I was so drawn to it I had to try it on!

For some bizarre reason, the print reminds me of this:

Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen's poster for Le Chat Noir.
Is it just me?
Unfortunately (although I think my purse gave out a sigh of relief), when I tried it on I just wasn't convinced...the high neck combined with busy print really did nothing for my bust! And I felt that it was maybe a bit short for my liking; I like a skirt to reach a good couple of inches below my knees ideally!
But that aside, it is a lovely dress with a glorious print. So, I thought I would inform you vintage/vintage-inspired loving ladies of blogland of such a wonderous dress. Hopefully someone else can give it the love it deserves!

Pip pip! x


  1. Oh - it IS fab - but I doubt it would do anything for me - and certainly nothing for my purse!

  2. Oooh lovely. I'd better keep away from Mango! x

  3. It IS fab. Mango huh? They tend to be little sizes :-/

  4. It is a heavy jersey, so it has a bit of stretch Lady Cherry! And seemed quite a good size when I tried it on!
    I just hope someone adopts these cats! xxx


Please leave me a comment, I'd love to hear what you beauties think.
