Cat Lady

Those of you who know me outside of this blog know that I’m kind of obsessed with cats.  Like, really obsessed.  In the creepiest way possible.  Whatever.  I follow my parents’ cat around hopelessly whenever I’m home.  (He senses my enthusiasm and detests me.)  I’ve been begging Stefan for a kitten since the day we met.  (Two years ago, he gave me this for my birthday as a joke, and now she lives at the BaubleBar HQ.)  Anyway.  Someday I will get my kitten (or ten) but until then, I’m just a little bit obsessed with all things cats.  Hate cats?  I apologize.  Sorry, I’m not sorry.

    This might be your most epic post to date.  Seven gold stars to you, my dear.

    On a semi-related note, this convo happened yesterday:
    Tier:  “Real talk:  if I get a kitten but I’m still single/living by myself, does that make me a crazy cat lady?”
    Male Friend:  “…why not just get a dog?”

    sigh.   I basically just to steal Choupette from Karl and call it a day.


    • graceatwood says 8.5.12

      Haha. You crack me up. PLEASE steal Choupette!

    Oh c’mon: cats are the best thing

    I have two cats, Bricyola, my sister, who is almost
    16 and Avril who is 3 and he’s my son. He’s black, he’s huge and he is the best
    thing happened in my life. When I touch him my world is a better place! I can’t
    explain how I feel when he cuddles me.

    Bricyola is an old lady, she understands when
    people doesn’t like cats but she understands when me or my mum are sad too,
    she’s so sweet. She’s with me from 1996 when I was 9 and she was two months.
    When I cry she sit near me and cuddles me!

    To me they’re just not animals they’re my


    Two pics of my lovely family:




    I hope you can see them!

      Aw, they are absolutely precious, Alessia! Thanks for sharing!!

  12. Becca Atwood says 8.2.12

    I love this!! I’m so sad Steve’s allergic.

    • graceatwood says 8.5.12

      I know, the worst!! We need to get him shots.. or get you one of those hypoallergenic ones.

  13. Sarah Pickell says 8.2.12

    omg yesss!!! this is seriously the greatest post ever!! Love it! I want it ALL 🙂 

    I grew up with two beautiful and amazing cats, and in the past 2 years since their passing, have adopted another cat. I love all my kitty’s and they really are a huge part of my family. yay cat ladies!! 

    • graceatwood says 8.5.12

      Cat ladies unite!! xx

  14. Meghan says 8.2.12

    Sooo…. I think your sister said below that Stefan is allergic?  A good friend of mine was dating a girl who had a cat… he’s deathly allergic and doesn’t really like them either.  (I’m deathly allergic but still LOVE cats – go figure)  Anywaysssss – he did that allergy shot thing and now he LIVES with the cat and he’s fine!  So – maybe Stefan should do that!  🙂  AND you could get one of those kitties who are supposedly hypoallergenic on top of it?  (Not hairless but somehow hypoallergenic?) 

    • graceatwood says 8.5.12

      Actually Stefan is not allergic… my sister’s husband Steve is. Lots of Steves and Stefans in our family, ha! We found some hypoallergenic ones for Steve… hopefully they’ll get one someday!

  15. Sarah O'Brien says 8.2.12

    the first sweater is super cute, but i wouldn’t mind having this all!

    • graceatwood says 8.5.12

      Me either!

  16. Elizabeth says 8.2.12

    I’m a cat lady so if I wear cat things will that make me a crazy cat lady? I love that Markus Lupfer sweater and that lipstick is so fun. Such cute things here!! xoxo

    • graceatwood says 8.5.12

      It won’t make you crazy. It will make you awesome. 🙂

  17. Alexa C Evans says 8.2.12

    Adoring that coin purse!

    • graceatwood says 8.5.12

  18. Akaleistar says 8.2.12

    Those shoes are adorable!

    • graceatwood says 8.5.12

      thank you!!

  19. Rosy Dolan says 8.2.12

    I know exactly what you mean! I am also a very intense cat lover! 🙂
    I hassled my partner for 2 and a half years for a cat and one day he just gave in and doesn’t regret it! We got a shelter cat and he’s the cutest, cuddliest little man I could hope for! (keep trying!)
    With regards to the cat loafers, I just bought a pair from this shop for $36 Aus in black!

    • graceatwood says 8.5.12

      ahh thanks for sharing! MUCH better price!

  20. Nicole Levine says 8.2.12

    • graceatwood says 8.5.12

      They’re just amazing. Someday, they will be mine!!

  21. Kara Endres says 8.3.12

    Hahaha that’s so funny! My roommate this summer had a cat that I’d follow around everywhere. By the time I left she was practically living in my room with me. I miss her already and I’ve only been home 4 days. But I love those flats. Ever since Erika made these on her blog I’ve been wanting to make some too.

    • graceatwood says 8.5.12

      Wait – someone made them!? How did I miss that!? Please – tell!

      • Kara Endres says 8.6.12

        Erica from PS I Made This did them here:

        • graceatwood says 8.6.12

          OMG – so stinking cute! I don’t know how I missed that – need to do it!!

          • Kara Endres says 8.6.12

            I know! I want to do them soon!! When I saw that post I had one of those slap-the-forehead “why didn’t I think of that?!” moments.

          • graceatwood says 8.7.12

            Same – super easy and cute!!

  22. Lauren (L.A. in the bay) says 8.3.12

    I am a cat lady too! YAY! I die for my baby cat! She’s a fluff ball 🙂
    Love what you picked!

    • graceatwood says 8.5.12

      Aw, thanks Lauren! Love learning how many of us are cat ladies… the best!

  23. Yet another reason why we probably get along so well. OBSESSED with cats. Joe is horribly allergic, else, there would’ve been 10 cats and 20 carpeted cat apartments up in this bitch ages ago.

    • graceatwood says 8.8.12

      Hahahaha, I never knew this about you! Love that! I am so obsessed… still working on getting Stefan ready for our family of cats… 😉

  24. kristiina ^..^ says 9.27.12

    Love this! I’ll have to add it to my pin board of cat inspired fashion >^..^<

    • graceatwood says 9.27.12

      Aw, thank you so much!
