Outfit of the Day: The Cat Whisperer at Pounce Cat Cafe

YOU GUYS, THEY'VE OPENED A CAT CAFE IN CHARLESTON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😭 I have officially died and gone to heaven--but just to be safe, please be sure to sprinkle my ashes there when my time comes so that I may become one with my feline brethren.

I cannot teeeell you how long I've waited to partake in the tradition of the cat cafe, as made popular by Japanese culture.  For those that are unfamiliar, cat cafes are a pay-by-the-hour establishment where you pay to hang out with a bunch of cats and sip on a beverage of your choosing (I know, it totally blew my mind too.) I had the pleasure of meeting Ashley, owner of Pounce Cat Cafe and Wine Bar on Meeting Street, and she was kind enough to let me take some outfit photos with these sweet little nuggets after hours.  The best part is that these babes are all adoptable, and I'd say around 85% of the cats we took photos with in this set have since found loving homes (brb, ugly crying tears of joy).

Outfit of the Day: Prism Power with Holes Eyewear

Happy New Year, everyone! I think the general consensus is that the world is glad 2016 (which will now be referred to as The-Year-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named) is over.  Although if I'm being honest, I can't say it was all bad.  In fact, some really incredible developments happened on Cats in My Closet:

  • I doubled my readership, bringing in over 200 unique visitors monthly and boasting close to 1,000 followers on Instagram
  • I met Stephanie, who really helped me improve photo quality on my blog (and we have some fun projects in the works for 2017!)
  • My girl Victoria designed a killer logo, which has steadily established my credibility as a brand
  • I've partnered with several businesses, including Dandy Boutique and Melonhopper
  • I styled my first editorial shoot as fashion stylist
  • I established Cats in My Closet as an LLC (!!), so I'm technically a small business owner! Isn't that crazy?!

Based on the growth I've experienced in such a short time, I'm really looking forward to what 2017 has to offer.  Even though Stephanie and I technically shot these photos in 2016, it felt like an appropriate post to ring in 2017, because this photo set is soooo beautiful. One of my goals on the blog is to really push the boundaries to what we can bring visually; as much as I love outfit posts, sometimes they can get pretty redundant or stale, so Stephanie had an amazing idea to shoot through her Holes Eyewear Kaleidoscope Glasses to create a dreamy effect. The results really speak for themselves, and I'm encouraged to pursue more unconventional photo practices for future posts.
