My First Cat Print Dress and the Wonders of (the) Amazon

With pointy ears ticked off the list, I was still desperate to get my paws on some cat print clothing... So I'm indebted to both Daxon, who were as good as their word in sending me my £50 Amazon voucher for joining their VIP Blogging Network, and Victoria from Victoria's Vintage, who recently enlightened me to the feline delights that can now be found amongst the bookshelves in the Amazon warehouse...

This AX Paris dress is on sale here and here (strangely at 2 different prices!), with a few 8s, 10s and 12s still waiting to be snapped up. The elasticated waistline does require a belt, and I'd recommend going up a size if you're busty, as the waistline is quite high, but overall, I'm in love with the sweetly flirty style and elegant nude and black colourway - perfect for my first foray into cat print!

Dress: AX Paris (available here and here), Shoes: Marks & Spencer (£15, available here), Belt: Primark (Past Season)

I'm sure it will see me right through Spring/Summer, but for now, I'm styling it with a chunky black jumper and ankle boots to see off the late winter chills!

Dress: As Above, Jumper: Primark (Current), Boots: Primark (Past Season)

I also snapped up a nail art brush and tool kit (first attempts to use it haven't met with great success, but this is probably more the fault of the workwoman than the tools - kinda wishing I'd gone for this one now, and blown the extra £3!) and two gorgeous vintage fashion coffee table books - 100 Years of Fashion and Marilyn in Fashion - I'm a bit of a history geek and love reading about the evolution of fashion, and how it ties in with societal change, but even if you're not, the pictures are lush! Full reviews coming soon...

I'm sure Amazon are trying to make the need for shopping anywhere else obsolete... Which I'm in no way complaining about, as long as I can tick kitty slippers off my list next.
