Retro Modern Cat Bed

This is the cutest cat bed I've seen around. Retro and sleek just like a cat itself. Made for cats and other furry little loved ones by a cat lover herself.

"The creator of Like Kittysville is an award-winning design graduate of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. Her lifelong collection of remarkable retro fabrics is matched only by a lifelong devotion to her collection of remarkable rescued and formerly feral cats. (Like Kittysville is really a reference to their home.)"

She now offers clear acrylic bases, which is way beyond cool, and in a wide range of other fabrics. Any lucky kitty with this bed is most definitely the coolest cat on the block.

I found this snazzy bed on Ebay.

Cozy, Cute & Covered

Coal Considered - Sands Hoodie Beanie (Khaki)

I don't know about any of you guys, but I am freezing my butt off! It had me thinking and searching for different types of cozy accessories to fashionably pass the winter in. Did you know that you can lose up to 75% of your body heat just through your head? Protect your noggins and necks, be toasty this winter!

Goorin Bros. - Kahn Faux Fur Hood (Tan)

Coal Considered - Yorke Knitted Hat (Mocha)

Coal Considered - Women's Nichols Neckwarmer (Black)

torn - Women's Tiedye Fringe Scarf (Magenta)

Purple Label - Women's Etudes Socks (Black)

The knee socks are what I'm living in right now. I wear them under my pants at home, at work, at night when I go to bed. They are fool proof when it comes to wearing your tall boots -- no socks falling down to your ankles. They come in every color for every mood. You won't know what you did without them in the winter. The boyfriend even thinks they're kinda sexy.

Stay Home This Wintour

Even Vogue editor and style icon Anna Wintour can have a bad day. Just why oh why did it have to be the Costume Institute Gala. She really isn't fully to blame. Chanel went no holds barred on this Star Wars number.

Get The Hell Outta Dodge

Early birds - Christmas 2008

Another pic treat from my traveling brother. For anyone out there who feels the financial crunch this holiday season just as much as I do, here's something to make you smile -- it's free.
