calivintage: caturday

i have to make a confession: i wear my leah goren cat print dress all the time. it’s the easy sort of piece that i can literally throw on after a long day at work to just wear around the house. and the type of dress that i pair with a cardigan on the weekend to run to the grocery store. and if you need evidence, here is one way i’ve worn it, and here is another. and this is the way that i wore it last weekend to scour for vintage at the alameda flea market.

dress: leah goren cat print dress (she takes custom orders!)
sweater: j.crew dream cardigan
bag: vintage woven tote
shoes: swedish hasbeens peep toe super high
glasses: bon look simply fabulous frames (if you use the code “bonlookgive” now through the month of september, you’ll get $10 off to your purchase and bonlook will donate $10 to childsight.)

    Darling dress! I also love the specs. My favorite dresses are also those that I can wear out AND around the house.

    Hi there!

    I’m coming to San Francisco from Toronto this September for a few days. I was just wondering if you could give me some great suggestions of areas I should stay/ things I need to see. I’m very into thrift shopping, and I’m trying to figure out how to get to this market by transit. Is there an easy transfet when I get over to Oakland? Any tips help! Thanks so much :)

    That last picture is so darling! I’m really loving the muted colour combination of your pieces and your bangs! Time to get out the scissors and get trimming on mine! Wish me luck!

    What an adorable dress! And it looks super comfy as well, I’d certainly wear it all the time too, just to remind everyone all the time how much I love cats haha! Love your pairing w/ the yellow clogs & straw bag, it looks perfect together! But then again, so do all your looks w/ this dress, you’re just an incredibly stylish lady : ) Oh, & love your jumping picture!

    That dress is just amazing…

    (i really want to say that it’s the cat’s pajamas…is that too much? I don’t want to be too cheesy)

  13. Darlene August 18, 2011 at 12:43 pm #

    Goodness, I’d be obsessed with that dress as well! Heck, I’d wear it every day and show the world my love for kitties!…haha Anyways, I’ve seen other bloggers wear this dress as well. Could this be the blogger dress? haha

  14. Misty August 18, 2011 at 12:45 pm #

    That is an awesome dress (!!) ♥

  15. Ellie Pretty Much Penniless August 18, 2011 at 12:55 pm #

    It’s the bursts of yellow that make this outfit for me :) Just wonderful.

    Also, I’m going to be in SF from the 17th Sept for 3 nights and was wondering if you know of any good fleas on then? I don’t think alameda flea is on then :( Any help would be much appreciated! :) x

  16. Shelby Petersen August 18, 2011 at 12:55 pm #

    if i had that dress i would wear all the time too. it’s pure perfection.

  17. Ashley August 18, 2011 at 1:35 pm #

    Haha, I love how much you wear Cat Dress! Cat Dress is clearly magical. I’ve had it bookmarked in my favorites on Etsy for quite awhile now, and I’m not sure that I’ll be able to resist much longer!

    Feline motif dress and preppy glasses- instant love! I just got my Bonlook glasses, can’t wait to show case them! You look darling!

  20. LH August 18, 2011 at 2:22 pm #

    so she does still make them? yeeey, i have been eye-ing ong them ever since i saw you in that dress!

    • erin (calivintage) August 18, 2011 at 2:46 pm #

      yes! when i ordered mine a couple months back, i had to email her and ask for a custom order. i think that when she lists them, they sell out quickly, so just email her!

  21. Vanessa August 18, 2011 at 2:25 pm #

    I have been lusting over that dress for ages, I wish my budget allowed me to purchase! I would absolutely wear the poo out of it, too. It looks so comfortable and cattastic.

    What a lovely dress, it looks great with the green cardigan and yellow swedish hasbeens. The purse is beautiful, love it!

  26. Leah - What Indie Nights? August 18, 2011 at 5:32 pm #

    Holy guacamole, I wish I had as many Hasbeens as you do.
    Absolutely love that dress, although I’m not sure I can pull off white things, even if they do have wicked little cat heads all over them.

  27. Sherrie August 18, 2011 at 5:36 pm #

    I love the color of your shoe and purse. And that catprint dress is adorable – I would wear it all the time as well!

    It’s really just a matter of time until I cave and purchase that dress… The adorable silhouette and cat print are pretty much everything I could want in a piece of clothing. ;) I love seeing you and other bloggers remix it!

  31. Giulia August 19, 2011 at 2:40 am #

    Oh I love this dress! I can understand why you’re wearing it all the time.
    Btw you look stunning!

    ahhh, I Love your funny clothes!! :)

    The last shot is really sweet. At first when I saw this thumbnail picture on bloglovin (the first shot, obviously), I thought you dyed your hair a tint of red because of the lighting.

  35. Katie August 19, 2011 at 9:15 am #

    I love EVERYTHING about these photos! Must get myself and olive green cardigan…

  36. melissa August 19, 2011 at 9:38 am #

  37. Isi, Wake up & smell the azahar August 19, 2011 at 10:07 am #

    I don’t blame you for that, that dress is stunning. Love the yellow accesories.

  38. Miranda August 19, 2011 at 2:15 pm #

    If I had that dress I probably wear it almost everyday too, it’s so cute
    And I love how you combined it with the green and yellow

  39. Hazel Lou Anna August 19, 2011 at 2:15 pm #

    Love your outfit posts! So inspirational, now I just have to force someone to take mine! That car dress is so pretty, you could wear it for every outfit post, I wouldn’t get tired you make it very interesting with your accessories! Hope you have a nice relaxed weekend!

    • Hazel Lou Anna August 19, 2011 at 2:17 pm #

      ops, it should be “cat dress” of course, however a “car dress” might be interesting too!

  40. MarieBayArea August 19, 2011 at 4:29 pm #

    You are the cutest girl ever! That cat dress and the yellow shoes and handbag and your specs are darling darling darling…

  41. Jamie Rose August 19, 2011 at 9:20 pm #

    The mix of yellow and army green is amazing. I really love your cat print dress too. It’s so quirky, but really versatile too. I think because the colors are neutral and the shape is classic. Such a nice outfit!

  42. sugarhoneybaby August 20, 2011 at 4:20 am #

    Nice look!

  43. Dylana August 20, 2011 at 6:54 am #

    I really wish you’d stop posting this dress because I WANT IT SO BADLY. And every time I see it I consider buying it more and more because IT IS AWESOME. And I’m trying to budget myself. (Haha yeah right no good budgeter would let herself look at these blogs :p )

    • erin (calivintage) August 22, 2011 at 5:47 pm #

      haha, i know what you mean! i resisted this darn dress for months because i didn’t want to spend so much money on just one item. i definitely sympathize, but i just can’t stop wearing it! ;)

  48. Katie August 28, 2011 at 8:17 am #

    I am so in love with that dress! So cute!

    And I love your glasses!
    I am your new follower! :)
