Weekly Kitty:


No, we didn’t adopt a hairless. WE WENT TO A CAT SHOW. More images on Instagram.

Locals! I’m gonna try to make it to this event myself, if I can: “Measured is a gallery show that offers a sneak peek into a designer’s creative process, from the first sketches to the final stitches. We’re removing the runway element to focus on design and craftsmanship, and we’re taking you with us. Prepare to be immersed! (Or at least look at pretty things.)” The opening event is at Soo VAC on October 1 starting at 6 p.m. And it’s free! (Cheers to Danae for the tip about this event.)

A new house for Simon. (First seen on Instagram.)

Chioma looks ready for fall in an outfit that combines denim, orange, and leopard print. (BTW, did you know I’ve got an entire Pinterest board full of Fall fashion inspiration?)

Anyone checked out the retro-inspired Ashley Nell Tipton for JCPenney collection? Looks like it includes some funky pieces in size 0X – 5X and 16W – 30W. Amber looks amazing in a cape top and pencil skirt from the capsule.

She loves being between layers. I missed the photo op, but she also sat upright with the sheet over her, cape-style.

The secret to an eye-catching all-black outfit is to incorporate a variety of textures, as Stephanie shows us.

“I hate all those style rules. That’s what I told the Telegraph when they asked me for advice on ‘navigating fashion through the menopause.’ Style is an individual thing … Yes, body shape changes around the menopause – mine has, I have that ring of flab around the middle and so I’ve adapted, a bit (basically I’m less inclined to wear a figure-hugging t-shirt) but there’s no one-size-fits-all just because you’re older.”
