“Every once in a while, we find ourselves in a this-is-a-first-for-me type of situation. Today, I experienced such.”
A year ago, a friend of mine decided to move from her old apartment to a new one which accommodated pets. She wanted a cat. Lucky for her, some guy had some kittens to give away and she wound up getting one. She named him Levi Jenkins Brown. I’m not really a cat person because I believe they are too vicious and scary. Anyways, this meant that I’d have to interact with the Levi any time I’d visit my friend. I wasn’t too excited about the idea. Then came Christmas 2017 and my friend asked me to catsit for her while she was away visiting family and friends. I was really hesitant because if anything happened to him, I’d be held responsible. Fast forward to summer 2018 and I’ve grown fond of Levi. So much so that I suggested throwing a party for him.
Every once in a while, we find ourselves in a this-is-a-first-for-me type of situation. Today, I experienced such. Having prompted my friend to plan Levi’s party, I was now caught in a fashion dilemma. Bet you didn’t suspect this was where I was headed, did you? LOL. What do people wear to a cat party? Since this was the first cat party for me (not unusual for pet owners) I felt like we should dress up for Levi. After all, summer is almost over and I need an excuse to wear some of the stuff I bought earlier. LOL.
I decided to use pink as the main colour. Summer is the time to experiment with colour and I was willing to fail my way to successful colour combos. My shirt was from H&M which cost me about 15USD. When I saw it I knew it would go perfectly with my slim fit cropped pants from Bershka. At the time of purchase the pants cost me roughly 45USD but now it has dropped to about 10USD and I’m so mad. Missed out on a good sale.
My shoes were also from Bershka and I waited for them to go on sale before I bought them for 20USD. Heck, Berhska needs to make me some kind of ambassador cuz I really shop there quite often. Haha! I completed my party look with my sunglasses from Forever21 Men (click here for details on the glasses) as well as my cat ears, bracelets being a mixture of H&M and WEGO Japan and a black Cordura messenger bag from GU Japan.
Levi was very happy to see me and I couldn’t resit photo op so I could post and pretend I was as happy to see him. Jokes. Although he did scratch me immediately after the pic was taken. I guess he sensed the hug was lacking sincerity. I did, however, get him a gift which he seemed to love. For my first ever cat party, I must say, I had fun. Can’t wait for the next one…or can I?
