Meow!


Hello to you!
I hope you are all doing great! Happy April!
Last post I was complaining about how spring hasn't sprung yet here in northern Sweden. And unfortunately the same is true still... However, I did my best to keep my mood up by wearing my warm velvet Book of Deer dress. This dress is quite possibly the most versatile dress I own. It looks great with any shirt, blouse and top I've ever tried it with. And it even works on its own, I imagine it will look beautiful with a pair of black heels for an autumn/winter party. Today I decided to wear it with my cat blouse from Choies.



While the blouse is really cute, the quality is lacking, but for the price I bought it for I cannot be surprised. However, I must also say that it was quite a hassle ordering from Choies. It took well over a month to get the blouse and I would constantly get emails telling me that the blouse was out of stock. I shouldn't be able to buy something they don't have. Let's just say, I won't be buying from them again. Either way, I like the blouse well enough, and it's definitely a lot cheaper than the Miss Patina one.



Meow! I'm a cat.

The outfit as a whole made me very pleased. It has the proper amount of quirk, and the dress gives it a timeless look and a beautiful silhouette.

  1. This post could not have been more perfectly timed, haha! I was honestly just on Choies debating on a pair of shoes before I came to your blog...but I had never ordered from Choies and didn't know anyone else who had...and now I know! I think I'll pass on ordering those shoes! Haha. But your blouse is absolutely adorable, and I loved this dress! The whole outfit is just pure adorableness. :)

    I hope you have a lovely week, Mona! :)

    1. Oh wow! Hahaha! I'm glad I posted it at the right time for you then! I think you're doing the right thing passing on the shoes, such a hassle.
      Thank you so much, you're too sweet <3
      Thanks, you have a beautiful week too.
      Much love

  2. This dress is indeed very versatile, I love it! I love empire shape, it is so flattering. I'm not surprised to hear you had issues with your order at Choies - they ship from Asia, right? That's why I tend to avoid those types of online shops, even Sheinside - although I've always wanted to get some stuff from them! The blouse is super cute though, just as cute as the Miss Patina one :D

    1. I love it so much too! I agree, the shape is very flattering and allows for big meals (or lots of cake in my case).
      Yeah they do ship from Asia. I've never tried Sheinside, so I can't say anything about them, but Choies was definitely not a good experience.
      Thank you so much beautiful.
      Much love

  3. I'm not the biggest fan of Choies either, they're quite unprofessional when reaching out to bloggers and I didn't want to work with them again. Really love the collar on that blouse though, too cute! Perfect outfit as always and I'm all *___* over your little tatt! <3

    1. Are they really? Oh well, if I'd known I might not have ordered from them in the first place. But what's done is done.
      I really love the collar too, although you really do notice the lacking quality.
      Oh thank you darling. Oh hahaha, my wee tatt! I love it so much. You have a very cute one too! <3

  6. So adorable!! You want to hear a "sick of winter" tale? Right now in the Boston area, we have snow on the ground once again! It has been snowing for the past two days and now it's just cold. It was 70 degrees F last week!! Craziness! ;)

    1. Thank you lovely!
      Oh I'm sorry. You'd think in April there shouldn't be anymore snow... but nope. Wow, that's 20 degrees C! And then it started snowing! That is crazy. I hope your spring comes already!
      Much love

  7. Mona this outfit is so precious!I adore the texture of that pinafore dress! I'm so glad you reviewed this particular blouse since I was deliberating on whether to purchase or not (the price tag is tempting). From an aesthetic point of view it appears to be the exact replica of the Miss Patina one, but likewise I have been disappointed with their quality before.. also from what I've heard the images on Choies, Romwe etc are stolen from other websites and people's personal images which give the illusion that their products are well-made.
    On a positive note... you look lovely 😊

    1. Thank you so much darling Sumeyye! Oh I do too, the pinafore is one of my favourite dresses.
      The price tag is tempting, and it is true, they use/steal miss patina's photos so it looks on their webpage to be the exact same thing, even though it's not.
      Oh thank you sweetie <3
      Much love
