Look of the Day: Well Hello...Kitty

After four days of wearing pajamas and watching old movies, what's girl to do? Get dressed up of course! I took a cue from the old Hollywood Glamor movies I have been watching and tried out the old but new trend of kitten heels.

Now I know most people ahem Miss JennaB scoff at the idea of kitten heels but after all the classic movies I watched, they started to seem charming to me. So I decided to give them a go around. I upped the sex kitten aspect of lone inch heels by wearing a short hemline and a leopard print top. Rrwar!

Despite the absence of three or four (or more) inches that I usually look for in heels, the kitten heels still surprisingly elongated my legs in a way that flats cannot (I despise flats).

So ladies if you find 4 inch heels played out or painful I urge to give the little kitties a try, but remember you must still elongate your legs when wearing them. You can achieve this by pairing them with something high waisted or a short hemline.

Oh darlings, Bette, Marilyn and Audrey would all be so proud.

  1. i'm not much of a kitten heels person myself but that's probably because of my stumpier legs :)
    these look amazing on you--super sophisticated and lengthening!

  2. I find kitten heels more comfy than flats. I love "high heels" also but I've kinda given up that idea for my daily grind.......

  17. Thanks ladies!! Glad you all liked the outfit! It was so nice to get dressed again!

  18. You wear them well! I've heard that kitten heels have come back in this season, too. :)
    I probably won't be trying out that trend though, if I'm going to wear heels I'm going all out! The tips you gave were great though! And that skirt is tooo cute!

  20. First - I love the leopard top against the skirt. It looks so good on you - ridiculous good.

    And the kitten heels are really chic. They give that 60's vibe that is so classy - I gave a pair to Goodwill last year and am totally kicking myself after seeing this post. Argh

    I especially love the last picture!!

    xoxo,
    Carrie
    and i love cats too - cat lovers unite :)

  33. This is a cute look, I really like the leopard top! For me, I like kitten heels only if the heel is chunky. But really, I always prefer flats or boots, too much running around for me!

  34. Thanks for the lovely comments, cute skirt. I'm not big on kitten heels but I do have a pair of kitten heeled penny loafers that's been for unworn for far too long, might give it a wear some day soon.

  38. Kitten heels sound like a nice alternative for the Fall & Winter. High heels ice can be tricky.
