I had to share this- the video is awesome.

Hello all! So here we are- another Friday- yay! 

First things first- if you're not following me on instagram I had to share this photo of Orlando- he likes to keep an eye on my while I get ready in the morning! 

from instagram :) bianca_catsclothescolour

Secondly, I saw this article- and I had to share! 

I could look at cats all day long- but if I'm not with Orlando I can get a bit sad. 

Finally, yesterday I had a couple of deliveries and (if you see my images on Instagram you would know) I didn't have time to go through everything just yet. I'm thinking I might start taking photos of my outfits. I feel I need to share them with people who will appreciate. For now, the Whistles floral skirt is amazing. I love the jersey asos dress- the most amazingly comfortable dress ever! The cat cardigan is purrfect and I'll come back to you on the rest! :-) 

Have a beautiful weekend!

Pleated Skirts

My outfit today, I'm rather pleased with: 

Image 1 of ASOS Bow Front Turban Hat

ASOS Bow Front Turban Hat. I do love my hair accessories and most of all- bows!!

Marc by Marc Jacobs L'Amour Fou Delicate Necklace- off This is quite a simple and delicate piece and I could wear it almost every day. If you don't like wearing too much jewellery- it's perfect for you.

Image 1 of ASOS Trapeze Top with Broderie Trims
ASOS Shirt with Broderie Trim- (sold out on I'm actually wearing a light pink cardigan with white polka dots over this top. The collar is quite big so it's really very cute on. I've tucked it into the Whistles skirt below.

Image 4 of Whistles Carrie Pleat Midi Skirt
Whistles Carrie Pleat Midi Skirt- almost sold out on This was my first Whistles purchase- I absolutely love it. 

Image 1 of ASOS Faux Fur Short Cuffs 
ASOS Faux Fur Short Cuffs- I put these on over the cuffs of my black MICHAEL by Michael Kors trench coat. It was just the right touch I think. 

Marc by Marc Jacobs Ballet Flats. Available on (sold out in rose gold). I bought these because some mornings I don't have enough time to change my handbag to match my shoes and my outfit. With these, I can wear them with almost anything. On the plate is actually silver so if there is silver detailing on my handbag- I can still wear them (yes, I consider every detail) so they're great. They're much higher cut at the front than my other Marc by Marc Jacobs ballet flats- but all the same after a couple of wears they're perfect! 

So after amusing myself wearing this beautiful skirt- I have another confession. I just can't get enough of these pleated skirts. I bought a couple from the brand Hi There by Karen Walker and a few from Alannah Hill (alas they are not available online but have a look at her website anyway because I love her stuff!! and most recently I simply had to have another Whistles skirt (below). Here are a few more that I came across online...

MICHAEL Michael Kors Collection Pleated Skirt
MICHAEL Michael Kors Collection Pleated Skirt- off One simply can't resist a printed pleated skirt, surely? I like the longer lengths too, they're quite fun. I bought a maxi jersey dress off earlier this year by Heather- Absolutely gorgeous fabric! And I was rather surprised at how easily I could either dress this up or down. Above it is with flat sandals, but I wore mine on a colder evening with my flat black Chelsea boots and a short jacket. I'd do the same with this too for a trans-seasonal look. 

Marc by Marc Jacobs- Tara Tonic Pleated Skirt off I love the two tones in this skirt- Black & White. I couldn't imagine that you would ever have any problems finding something to wear with it! If you're looking for your basic skirt with a twist, this is it.

Whistles Lottie Skirt in Luna Print- off I bought this last week and I can't wait to see the colours when it arrives!

kate spade new york pleated skirt
kate spade new york pleated skirt off This is actually 40% off at the moment so hurry, hurry! I really think one needs a bit of katespade-ness around them. Everything is just so fun and so colourful. I'm actually looking at another kate spade handbag at the moment but so many amazing bags to choose from! The Quinn, the Bow Bridge, Primrose Hill, Florence, Little Kennedy?! They are all fantastic- I love my Blaine Ostrich Embossed Leather handbag. Such a great size and so incredibly light to carry! I even advised my sister to purchase a kate spade handbag and she bought the Maryanne tote (below) which I loved but was concerned about the weight of the chain straps. To my surprise they were not heavy at all. 

Kate Spade Gold Coast Shimmer Maryanne Tote

Back to my main point- love what you wear, wear what you love. Look out for prints, pleated skirts and all things kate spade. 

Happy Shopping!!

A Casual Weekend.

Hi all! Hoping you're all excited and getting ready for a great weekend!

What arrived this week were my shoes from anthropologie (I'm wearing the Candela ones as I type!!) and they're both amazing:
 I'm on Instagram: bianca_catsclothescolour

So what did I buy online this week? I was looking for some casual wear...

Freddy Front Pocket Sweat Pants- off

These will be great trans-seasonal pants for the weekend. I think I'll stick to wearing them with flats though... maybe even bring these out:

Michael Michael Kors City Fashion Sneaker
Michael Michael Kors Women's City Fashion Sneaker- off

And this dress:

ASOS Midi Dress With Long Sleeve- off It's 95% cotton- perfect for that in between season. It does come in black- but I have too many black dresses and I love this shade of red. 

And a cardigan for good measure:

A Wear Cat Jacquard cardigan- off It has cats on it- I had to have it. And I love cardigans, so it was purrfect! :-) 

Happy Friday!!

Florals & Prints.

Every time I open up to check out what's new on Saks now, I see this amazing image:

Erdem- Elisabeth Top & Erdem- Silk Voile Susie Skirt

Fendi- 2Jours Medium Mixed-Media Tote

So I set out to find some similar options... without the price tag.

at the tree leopard print:


ASOS Leather Scallop Edge Shopper- off

If you don't want to wear the printed skirt at printed top together, try one or the other with a plain colour you're comfortable wearing.

Preen Line Sonja Top In Floral & Animal Print- off This would look great with a navy, black or even light blue a-line skirt.

Kate Spade New York- Jolie Silk Skirt off This would be easily worn with either beige, yellow, black and white. The great thing about these skirts is that you can wear them in summer and in winter. I have about thirty printed skirts, most which I have bought and some of them which I made myself. I have a habit of wearing them with almost anything, including other prints, stripes and clashing colours. I'll never forget my sisters' mother in law commenting on the fact that I had a red skirt on and a pink coloured top... but I love it, and so does Preen (dress below almost sold out on

Image 1 of Preen Line Kelly Dress Midi Colour Block Silk & Jersey

Marc by Marc Jacobs- Onyx Floral Silk Skirt off This also comes in a dress, but sometimes a skirt is just so much more versatile. For those who don't want too much fuss- go with black or navy. For those who don't mind making a fuss- I'd go with some stripes, even another print. I actually like:

Sunshine & Happiness.

Happy Friday!!! We are getting closer to spring, so I thought the most appropriate colour should make you feel and think of sunshine! :-)

kate spade new york 'rainey' dress- a-line is a favourite of mine. this would look great with the kate spade black patent bow belt (below) and some cute black patent ballet flats. 
kate spade new york ' thin bow' belt
both available off 

ASOS LAGUNA Suede Ballet Flats with Metallic Block Heel. These are very cute and have just recently gone on sale- so get in while you can! You can never have too many ballet flats, right? ;-)
available off

Cacharel Mustard Belt- so fun and so pretty. I love bow belts and they are just so cute. If you're wearing a dress or a skirt, it will make all the difference.
available off

Kate Spade New York Women's Heather Flat. I love them- there really isn't much else to say. They're really sweet and can be dressed up nicely I think these would go really well with the Cacharel Belt above.

Kate Spade New York Belleville Plaid-Quinn Satchel. The tweed is a bit more of a winter fabric, but we are on different schedules to our New York friends here. Either way- it's a fantastic piece. The black patent detailing really works and this is why this little number made the list. Did I mention how much I love bows? Who would have guessed... :-)

Kate Spade New York Chambers Street-Carlyle Cross Body. Love the top handle- these darling lady bags are popping up everywhere. Marc by Marc Jacobs has a couple too- but the crocodile embossed patent yellow, well... it's just super cute!

David Aubrey- Sunpoints Necklace. I had to add this piece, I love the different shapes and colours of this necklace. It's handmade in the U.S.A- I know not everyone wears colour in the same way, so I would say those of you who wear a lot of black (don't worry I have those days too) this piece will really brighten your day.

Bettye Muller- Mantequilla Oxford Heels. The tassels!! These are amazing. If you can't be convinced with any of the above- surely these will do it. Has yellow suede ever looked so good?
Off Anthropologie:

Happy Shopping & Happy Friday!

Starting to see this more and more. Snakeskin is fantastic it's just one of those things you need to do minimally. Simple & not over accessorized.

Vince Camuto Snakeskin Print Blouse in Aztec Gold.
Available off
This also comes in green, but I just love this colour! I'm thinking black jeans/pants/skirt (pencil) with black patent shoes and black patent handbag with minimal gold jewellery. 

Elizabeth & James- Snake Nuri Pants
Available off
Casual, comfortable and colourful!

Botkier- Valentina Shoulder Bag
Available off
There is something about this bag. It has such a vintage feel to it and the gold detailing just makes it work. It's actually much bigger than I would have thought too. 

Loeffler Randall Loafers - Babette
Available off
White shirt, black jeans/pants (slim leg) and these shoes.

KORS Michael Kors Women's Danett Flat
Available off
These are available in a few colours and types of leather, but these pink ones are my favourite! If you're not a fan of wearing too much colour, it's great to start with shoes and accessories.

Michael Michael Kors Jet Set Tote in Burnt Orange
I love the jet set totes. They're really comfortable on the shoulder and a perfect size for everyday. I bought one for my mum in the monogram canvas last year and she loves using it on the weekends. 

Happy Shopping!!

Monday Blues.


It's one of the hardest days of the week for most. So here are a few things to cheer you up! :-) 

Milly- Calais Pleated Knit Dress 

This dress is great, the plain top and the stripe skirt go really well together. If you're not one for mixing and matching things, this dress does it for you. Pretty + comfortable in one.

A.P.C.- Denim Shirtdress
I love denim and the shirtdress at the moment. It's a good length and you can have the sleeves down & buttoned. I'd probably go all the way and also button the dress all the way to the top and pair with some flatform sandals :-)

Kate Spade New York Women's Nashelle Flat
These are fantastic. I love the colour, and the gold detailing on the front and the heel of the shoe.

A Wear Pretty Cable Jumper
Available off

Love this colour!! And I'm a fan of the cable knit. 

alice + olivia- Woodley Tunic
Available off
Shirts! Shirts! Shirts! This is a great piece, because of the length you can wear it like this or tucked into a skirt.

Equipment- Signature Diamondback Python Blouse
Available off
Python print + blue + Equipment = <3 + :-) Beautiful silk and a pretty print.

Equipment- Sleeveless Signature Blouse
Available off
If you're after something a little more subtle- here you go.

ASOS Premium Pants In Ombre Print- Available off 
Not too much to say about these. If you can- do. I'd probably pair them with some loafers and a shirt too.
