I do my best to resist buying every cat-print item that floats across my radar, and I do a decent job of it. I’ve got a cat-print scarf, and until now that was it. But since I’ve been curious about Dorothy Perkins quality for a while now and since this shirt has just the right arty-graphic bent to it, I caved. No regrets. (And quality is surprisingly good for the price. This tee requires a cold wash and flat drying, which is a little fussier than most, but definitely do-able.) read more

I feel like nearly all of my online style consult clients end up with “magenta cardigan” on their shopping lists. And yet magenta cardigans are nearly impossible to find! Such a great piece to have in theory – since magenta works with jewel tones, pastels, brights, and neutrals – but most available cardigans are either too pink or too purple. I squealed with joy when I unearthed this one at a local thrift store. I’d rather it were a V-neck, of course, but I can make do. read more
