Today's Outfit: Pockets of Joy



Remember the dress I said had to be seen "on" to be fully appreciated? Well, here it is... on :) It's super comfortable and drapes like a dream. The very best thing about it though are the big pleated pockets! What is it about dresses and skirts with pockets?

Guinness, our cat and yes he's named after beer, hopped up during my little photo shoot. Isn't he handsome? He's 12 years old and we've had him since you could hold him in the palm of one hand. He was part of an abandoned litter that a customer from the coffee shop Lucas worked in found one morning. All the other kittens ran off but Guinness was too weak and dehydrated to move. The person brought him into the coffee shop on his way to work and Lucas took him in. We nursed him back to health with an eye-dropper and a carton of half-n-half. He's the best cat ever :)

That dress is really unique! I like it a lot. Your cat is cute, it's so crazy thinking about nursing a little kitten to health!

Sweet kitty story! I love anything with pockets, it means you can go out without a bag because you can slip your keys and bits and pieces in your pockets and just go.

aaawww! Guinness upstaged your dress with cuteness (it's commonly know as the Clover-effect: a perfectly adorable outfit gets overshadowed by a cute infant and/or cuddly animal)

What a great story! And the dress looks like it was made for you.

This is really pretty! It works on your slender figure (on me those pleats would be horror - AHHH). Dresses with pockets are so relaxed and comfy, I love em too.

Missa said...

Thanks so so much everyone for all your dress and kitty love!

Milla: I bet Guinness would have a different definition of the Clover-effect for you. Poor kitty, she terrorizes him!

Spandexpony: I LOVE the name Tigerlily for a tabby!

The dress is beautiful. LOVE the pockets. It looks easy to wear. Great find. Glad that kitty made the picture so we could know the story too.

Wow, you're channeling the Snail and the Cyclops today while still looking like your lovely self! That dress is awesome.

Guiness is a beautiful cat (and that's a great name). His svelte figure puts Mink to shame. I love that even your cat is thrifted :)

Mila said...

I wanted to thank you for the amazing comment you left me. I really appreciate you took the time for that and really said good things that made me think. In a good way.
Thanks a lot for that.

I am looking forward to your next post! ;)

Mila.

The dress is so romantic Missa. It deserves to have walks in meadows and by bubbling creeks. Guinness (my husbands perfect breakfast-beer not the cat) is clever to sneak into the photo. He looks perfect with you.
