Small Girl, Big Ideas

you're kitten me, right?

I'm not a big fan of Halloween, but when my friend Shauna told me she was having a Halloween party, I was so incredibly excited. Not only was it being held by one of my favorite people, it wasn't on Halloween, didn't start at something crazy like 11pm, and wasn't a bunch of college kids in skimpy outfits getting all up on each other - perfect! I'm not big on elaborate costumes - I respect them greatly, but I tend to have a problem purchasing items simply for one day (eg. Halloween costumes and my wedding dress). So I decided to be....a not so cat. A crazy cat lady? What am I? You tell me.

  2. Haha "a bunch of college kids in skimpy outfits getting all up on each other..." SO TRUE. And I totally just caught a glimpse of your adorable shoes. They are so you, and so perfect.

  3. I would love to go to one of those over-the-top wild super fantastic costume parties for Halloween. Robert and I got really nice costumes the last time we were in New Orleans, but we've only wore them for each other so far. I suppose we could dress up for the kids that come to the door but it's not quite what I was looking for. I hope you have fun at your party.

    Love all your animal themed outfit. You're a "cool cat lady with a hat?"

    I ended up buying this same dress on sale for an extra 25% off. It looks great on you.

  4. Gah, I love this dress SOOO much!! It's the cutest print in the whole world. And that cardigan is adorable, I love the sprakly details on it. You and your pup are the cuuutest.
    I'm not celebrating halloween this year because no one is hosting a party, no bars, college grinding up gatherings for this lass. I love making my costume though, Usually I try to incorporate clothes I already own and just make one piece. Last year I was a rag doll and the year before a peacock!

  6. I have seen that dress several times and I always love it! The tights are super cute too! I am a fan of Halloween, but usually I am burned out by the time Halloween actually comes after a billion Halloween parties for the kids.

  8. Oh my goodness, those tights are darling. I had to take a second look at that third photo - too cute! And they are such a fun addition to your cat printed dress. With the theme you have going, I think a crazy cat woman would be the perfect costume. You could even dress Teemo up as a cat and take him along. I'm sure he'd forgive you... eventually. Haha

  9. Adorable. I used to buy costumes EVERY year and it really is a waste. I just look at how expensive they are and roll my eyes. I may dress up as Hello Kitty this weekend for our friends party, but I'm still undecided.

  11. how cute are you in this outfit?! I love the detail on your tights...how sweet! =)
    AND I'm with ya...Halloween isn't my personal fave holiday but it's because I didn't grow up getting various costumes to wear or go out for trick or treating often so I never had a tradition associated with the holiday. Plus, when college came around, I wasn't the girl who felt comfortable dressing with less is more. hah...

  17. You're adorable in those cat ears. I always try to make my Halloween costumes out of things I already own. :) The best part about these pictures is that you're a cat and your dog...well, your dog is a dog. :P

  32. Those tights are too cute! I remember seeing them somewhere online and awwww-ing over them. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I am being a leopard, so we're both in the same animal family...fancy felines! haha. :)

  33. Oh my goodness. This is so very cute. I love this hat on you! Your dress and tights are perfect!

  34. I'm not all into the "sorority" type Halloween parties (although I've never been to one!) But still it's pretty obvious that parties are much better when it's just close friends where you can let loose and not have to worry about the trash bags walking in. ;) I'm supposedly doing a fairy/mother nature themed costume this year for a teeenyyy tiny Halloween party i'm having at our house (seriously, like 4 people will be here hahah.)
    you look so lovely and T is adorable as always!

  38. Beautiful dress! And I always get so freaking excited when I'm watching a tv show and I have something from it :D For example, I have one of the dresses that Rachel wears in Glee and I have the same pillows as someone in Make it or Break it haha.

  41. This whole outfit is so cute! And I love the tights...I did a double take when I saw the photo! And you have a great take on Halloween, I've never bought a costume before, only used things I already have to make something.

  42. That dress is so cute!

    You should do pumpkin carving! It's artistic, fun and doesn't have to be at any particular time. Plus you can make pie or soup out of the pumpkin bits you cut out. And people make things like this:

    I am majorly into Halloween and pumpkins if you haven't got that already! :)

  43. I really may have to put this dress on my Christmas list because I swoon every time I see it. Or maybe i will troll ebay for awhile! Your little cat ears are amazing and that sounds like the perfect Halloween party! Teemo looks quite dapper and adorable in his costume as well!

  46. You look so adorable in this dress! I love all the ways you have remixed it including as a Halloween outfit. I hear ya on the one day thing! I still have no idea what I am going to be. I honestly may just go to the fabric store and do your classic Ghost. I had a friend that did that one year and didn't take it off the entire time... and it was actually kind of amusing.

  50. I think this dress might be my favorite thing that you own. You should just wear it every day. Also, I wish I could look this stylish on Halloween! And I completely agree- I never see the point in spending a lot of money on a costume when you wear it ONCE.

  61. I love this outfit so much (but then I really am a crazy cat lady - I can't get enough of them) did you stencil the cats on your legs or are they stockings?
