Fashion with Felines starring Pandora Von Der Plume ~ The Feline Fashionista ~ Featuring The Starry Night Bag by Irregular Choice [Or As I 'Av Renamed It:- The Valentine Bag]

Welcome to

Bonjour mes amis!

And velcome to my second Fashion vith Felines post!

Bringing mew the cutest, fun trends in kitty themed fashion fur your pet hooman.

This veek I'm sharing an absolutely dahling bag from the uber funky brand Irregular Choice.  If mew've neffur 'eard of them before they are a rather unique company specializing in really fun styles, though some of the rather avant garde styles might not be furfur effuryone, but I can assure mew there are some tamer things on their website too.  The P.A. 'as bought shoes from them before, though a long time ago in Australia before they even got to the UK and she loves them.

The B Team and I purrchased this purrticular bag fur the P.A.'s birthday last month and I've been pawsitively beside myself to share it vith mew all.  The official name of the bag is: Starry Night, but I 'av renamed it to the Valentine bag as it's got our vunderpurr buddy on it as mew'll see in a moment.

Now that gives an idea, I need to 'av some uber cool fashion items named aftur me too...The Pandora Bag, I think that 'as a nice ring to it... 

Now lets' talk about the purracticalities: 

The bag is just so cute, vith 'olographic clouds and an 'olographic faux snakeskin moon, glittery stars, purple hearts and pearl detail on a lush background of navy crushed velvet. The cute black kitty is so fluffy just like Valentine, if that doesn't make mew vant to get one then I don't know vhat vill! MOL

It has two straps which are the purrfect length to comfortably wear on the shoulder. There are three large pockets, 2 outer ones vith nice, wide side-to-side zips so mew can open it right up, and the middle larger pocket 'as a magnetic clasp. It also comes vith an adjustable shoulder/cross-body strap in the navy crushed velvet with the matching 'olographic piping.

Vhile not a huge bag, mew can certainly get lots in it and as the P.A. carries nearly effurything but the kitchen sink, it's just purrfect and as an added bonus, it 'as a fabulous floral interior, like mew can see in the sneakers below.  I also love the fact that it is made completely from man-made fabrics, so no critters 'ad to suffer fur the sake of fashion.

Being the generous kitties that ve are, we also got her these to match... The Starry Night [aka Valentine] Sneakers.
 But sadly they didn't fit, due to being too wide, but they vere so cute, and the P.A. was so sad when she 'ad to send them back. The P.A. said they're shoes that make mew smile, as who doesn't want to look at cute kitties on your feet! MOL

Even Fudge was smitten with it, though he did say; that it wasn't as floofy as his tail, but then ve 'aven't seen anything yet that can compare vith his mega floof! MOL

In summary, if mew love cats, vant something that stands out from the crowd and is really unique, then this is the bag fur mew.

Lucky Charms, A Leprechaun Hunt, Nip Beer and an Oshkosh on the Pet Parade Blog Hop No: 239 ~ Hosted by Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Barking from the Bayou

Supurr Salutations and Greetings Wunderpurr Furriends

As mew can see we've really got our green on today! MOL

Well what's been happening this week, I hear mew ask?  Amber got mugged by some cheeky leprechauns on the way back from her pole dancing club the other evening.  They took all her tips and her rather fetching green costume which Pandora had designed fur her!  Who knew leprechauns could be so hostile, tut tut tut, shame on them! 

Smooch, Parsley and Fudge found some lucky charms down the field, and are now trying to turn them into the newest, bestest crypto-currency to rival BitCoin, good luck with that dudes!

I drank copious amounts of nip beer at our St Paddy's Day Pawty and then followed a rather mystical rainbow to find a great big pile of gold, like who knew that could happen in real life?  And so guess where I'm headed, yep mew guessed it; Dwight Dastardly my local Dealer in Arms and Ammunition, here I come.  

As I saw a rather pawesome Oshkosh truck at his secret yard the other day, and obviously as he's more secret than the Secret Service he wouldn't let me take any footage.  So I had to go to youtube and find mew this; as it's just too epic not to show mew, and wait till mew see how it drives offur terrain, mew'll be wanting one too! MOL 

Isn't it an epically epic BEAST?  

The P.A. says she's having furst goes in it if I do get one, as it's another one of her top 10 fav trucks in the #2 slot, she says she'll neffur have purroblems parking again - by that I think she means she can just leave it anywhere - try towing that Mr Parking-Meter-Man!!! MOL OOPS! 

And finally...

Wishing mew all a totally terrific St Paddy's Day!

If mew missed anything offur the last week, here's the latest posts fur your purrusal:

Time To Give Those Little Grey Cells a Workout on Brain Training with Professor Basil P.H.D. #38 and Hello Spring!

Happy Purrsday guys

Welcome to another fab brain training sesh on the blog! 

And the good news this week is Amber actually got her post done yesterday, in fact she prepared it on Monday - WOO HOO - thank mew all fur voting in our little poll last Friday, as without that, I think she'd still be lost in the trans-dimensional-state of purrpetual softness! MOL

I've been rather busy this week catching up on all your fab blogs, and oh my what adventures mew've been getting up too!

Then as it was quite nice outside fur a few minutes between the rain showers I decided I needed some fresh air and to do a full propurrty/garden inspection.

Then, a slight breeze blew away some of the last winter leaves and I spied a lovely, little splash of yellow...

Ah, I just love this time of year when effurything is just budding and starting to grow again and the nights are drawing out, though we don't put our clocks furward until the 25th of March and then it won't start to get dark till aftur 7pm, it's going to be epic as that means more outside time! MOL

Has Spring Sprung Where Mew Are Yet?

It's time to get those little grey cells wurking.

Here's the answer key to last weeks puzzle  How did mew do? 

Are mew ready fur this weeks puzzle?
Just right click to save the puzzle to your 'puter or print it off. 

Answer key will be on next weeks post.

As Pandora is here on Caturday with her second Fashion with Felines post, I thought I'd better get in her good books aftur the joke 'Pandora's Box' incident, so today I created a wurdsearch with fashion/sewing terms, here's hoping she doesn't hold a grudge fur long! MOL

Just right click to save the wurdsearch to your 'puter or print it off.

And here's this weeks jigsaw puzzle, featuring Parsley's pawesome Caturday Art.

It took me 13 mins 05 secs...  How did you do?

I found this weeks quite difficult, all that green! MOL

The epically epic Eastside Cats slipped off the top spot last week, but only by a gnats whisker; I think that they're luring me into a false sense of achievement, so let's see how they do this week! 

Everyone else got superb times, and I have to say mew're all getting faster and faster, by the end of term/semester mew'll be thrashing my times completely and I have some rather fancy awards to give out.

A quick reminder before we go... don't furget to join in the supurr Thankful on Thursday Blog Hop which is hosted by Brian's Home

Thankful Thursday Blog Hop

Until tomorrow...

Keep Calm

Wordy on Wednesday with Biblio-Kitty Amber #61 featuring Books 3 - 5 Oxford Tea Room Mysteries & Anything Supurr-Soft Is My Own Purrsonal Kryptonite

Welcome To

With me, Amber ~ The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty

Supurr salutations pawesome furriends

*waves paw*

Hello, hello, hello!

Many apologies fur missing last week, only the P.A. bought a couple of new supurr-soft teddybear blanky's fur the sofas in the sitting room, and believe me when I tell mew that anything supurr-soft is my own purrsonal kryptonite.

It's true, give me some softness and I'm rendered completely inert, sometimes fur days.  I just can't help it, it's like my mind becomes so focused on the softness that I furget effurything else that's going on... it's just like being in a trance-state-of-total-softness or TSOTS.

I've tried to offurcome this rather debilitating condition but from my research and the testings of many different styles of blanky's throughout my life, it's always the same;  Softness = Complete Inertia Recurring or S=CIr

If any of our fab furriends are in the scientific field I'd love to know why, and am I the only kitty in the wurld that suffers from this condition?

Thank goodness Basil and the rest of The B Team decided to put a poll on the blog on Friday fur mew to vote, as without that I don't think mew would have seen me fur months as my motivation to move was in the severe negative! MOL - OOPS! 

When Basil last showed me the results of the poll on Monday, 70% said I'd DEFINITELY make it fur this week*, 22% said PURRHAPS I would make it and 9% said NO WAY -  Parsley and Smooch I know that was mew who voted fur the No Way - we'll be having wurds later!

* Thank mew fur believing in me

So this week, to make up fur my futile failings of last week, I'm sharing the next 3 books in the Oxford Tea Room Mysteries.  

This week I'm sharing

Here's the book blurb:

Book 3 Two Down, Bun To Go

A sinister phone call in the middle of the night throws tearoom owner, Gemma Rose, straight into the heart of a new murder mystery - this time with her friend, Seth, arrested as the key suspect! The mysterious killing in the cloisters of an old Oxford college points to a bitter feud within the University - but Gemma finds unexpected clues popping up in her tiny Cotswolds village.
Meanwhile, her love life is in turmoil as Gemma struggles to decide between eminent doctor, Lincoln Green, and sexy CID detective, Devlin O'Connor...whilst her quaint English tearoom is in hot water as she struggles to find a new baking chef.
With her exasperating mother and her mischievous little tabby cat, Muesli, driving her nutty as a fruitcake - and the nosy Old Biddies at her heels - Gemma must crack her toughest case yet if she is to save her friend from a life behind bars.

7 hours and 40 minutes

*    *    *

Book 4 Till Death Do Us Tart

When Oxfordshire tearoom owner Gemma Rose enters her little tabby, Muesli, in the cat show at the local village fair, the last thing she expects is to stumble across a murder. And when her meddling mother and the nosy Old Biddies decide to start their own investigation, Gemma has no choice but to join in the sleuthing. She soon finds there's something much more sinister sandwiched between the homemade Victoria sponge cakes and luscious jam tarts!
But murder isn't the only thing on Gemma's mind: there's the desperate house-hunting that's going nowhere, the freaky kitchen explosions at her quaint English tearoom, and an offer from her handsome detective boyfriend that she can't refuse! With things about to reach boiling point, can Gemma solve the mystery before the killer strikes again?

 8 hours

*    *    *

Book 5 Muffins and Mourning Tea

Cotswolds tearoom owner Gemma Rose is excited to join the May Day celebrations in Oxford...until the beautiful spring morning ends in murder. Now, she's embroiled in a deadly mystery - with four nosy old ladies determined to help in the sleuthing! Before she knows it, Gemma finds herself stalking a Russian "princess" and keeping up with the Old Biddies in Krav Maga class, while still trying to serve delicious cakes and buttery scones at her quaint English tearoom.
And that's just the start of her worries: there's her little tabby cat, Muesli, who is causing havoc at the local nursing home...and what should she do with the creepy plants that her mother keeps buying for her new cottage?
But the mystery that's really bothering Gemma is her boyfriend's odd behavior. Devlin O'Connor has always been enigmatic, but, recently, the handsome CID detective has been strangely distant and evasive. Could he be lying to her? But why?

7 hours and 46 minutes

As mew know I've really been really enjoying this purrticular series, and I've just finished book 5, as that's the last audio version in the series. There are another 2 books, but as of today's date, neither has been turned into an audio version yet, I'm hopeful that it won't be too long as this series is really, really good.

The books follow straight on from one another, so there's no huge gaps in the time-line, it's just like a constant flow of what happens next, which I do like furry much, as mew feel like mew haven't missed a thing. The characters get more and more interesting, and yes, there is a bit of a love triangle and relationship ups and downs, but that is a sub-plot so neffur offur-shadows the main story line.

The entire series kind of has a Miss Marple vibe, though a fully modern version, so if mew like Agatha Christie, I believe mew'll really like these too.

And as soon as books 6 & 7 are available in audio format I'll share those too!
