I know what you are thinking, “It’s not Halloween yet. It’s only the first of October!” Well, you’re right. But you should also know that this is not a post about Halloween or dressing for it. No, I’m wearing cat ears because I like them.
To give credit where credit is due, I fell in love with the idea of cat ears as a headpiece at fashion week this September. I was sitting at the Cushnie et Ochs show when cleavage blindsided me on the front row. Luckily for me, a chic and dainty woman wearing cat ears grabbed my attention before I became too overwhelmed. Cat ears… I didn’t know her but I knew she was a total badass. She didn’t care that she was wearing an item traditionally viewed as a costume and it wasn’t Halloween, and why should she? She looked damn good in those cat ears. Due in large part to her “I don’t give a shit” attitude, within 24 hours I found myself with a pair of my own. Let it be known, I have been rocking them ever since.
