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.
So you see, it doesn’t have to be Halloween to rock cat ears. Just own it. Instead, the question you should be asking is “Who let Katie drive their boat?”
