black cat. nine lives.

black cat, nine lives, short days, long nights
living on the edge, not afraid to die
-janet, ms. jackson if you're nasty

for those of you who don't know me, i am obsessed with accessories. i always felt that it's the odds and ends that make an outfit... and i find that to be true with interior spaces too. make the foundation rich & classic and add your pop with the accessories. you can change a dress with a necklace and you can change a sofa with pillows and a throw.

with that being said, i am a glasses girl. ever since i was little, i've always had a pretty deep collection of both sunglasses and regular glasses. i love vintage retro pieces, expensive eyewear, and cheap $10 sunnies. so right now i am digging the cat eyewear frame. a throwback to 50s fashionistas, or even an homage to the days of Cleopatra's sultry & ornate eye makeup.

one of my favorite blogs is garance dore. it was actually the first blog i began following many many many years ago, even before blogrolls ever existed. i'm sure you're delighted to hear all this, but what does this have to do with my obsession for accessories? well, she posted this image today and i immediately zoomed in on the eyewear. and with that, i went on a little internet adventure for vintage cat eyewear.
