I love animals so much; it's therefore unsurprising that I covet shoes with eyes and animal-themed jewelry and I'm on a constant quest to break my Hello Kitty addiction.
Despite this, I'd rather not look like I'm wearing a costume. I do try to maintain some level of professionalism in my ensembles. Here is a roundup of my favorite creature stuff out there right now. Pair one or a couple of these things with a simple outfit to take it to the next level.
But first, the not-so-subtle. I was invited to the LA launch party for these Necomimi Brainwave Controlled Cat Ears. I declined the invite and cried a little bit, and they sent me a pair anyway. Here, you can see they're perked up at "High Focus," which makes perfect sense. You see, at the time, I was diligently pinning pictures of hot guys to the xoJane Pinterest "Babe Board."
I want to wear these next Halloween. And I think they're purrfect for anyone who's involved in the furry community (I myself am not). That said, avoid wearing them to a rave or warehouse party, because at just under $100, these high-tech ears might not withstand having beer (or MDMA-spiked water) spilled on them.
This clutch is less than $20! And his blue brother is freaking $9.94. On a rainy weekday, these guys would look great with a simple and chic gray sheath dress.
