Happy Friday everyone! Great plans for the weekend? For me it is working on my new 'walk-in closet' again, and - of course - studying (as ever). In both instances I expect to be getting a lot of help from my feline housemates Vashti and Taiyo.
As a self-confessed Crazy Cat Lady, I obviously love products that feature cats, but sometimes it is hard to find cute things that are quirky and fun, among all the cat-stuff that is stuffy, and sometimes downright psychotic. Luckily, cats are hot at the moment. Thanks to the internet and Taylor Swift (the Queen Bee of all crazy cat ladies), it is totally 'fetch' to expose your inner Crazy Cat Lady. To make it easier to do so I thought I'd share my current favorites. I am very much coveting number 8! Wish I had some occasion to wear it to. Maybe there is an annual Crazy Cat Lady Convention somewhere?

It has been a while since the last update from the Tatiana's Delights Etsy shop, so I thought it was good time to post one again, even more so because of the holiday season coming up.
There have been three additions to the shop, first of all in the form of a coat inspired by Duchess Catherine's aubergine winter coat that she wore during the Christmas service at the Queen's Sandringham estate in 2011. This coat has been one of my absolute favourite Kate outfits ever since I saw it. The colour, neckline, padded shoulders and slim silhouette make a very chic garment!
The next addition is a wrap dress made of pink floral printed silk, inspired by the Duchess' paisley printed wrap dress from DvF. And last, but not least (because it was quite a bit of work to get this one right) is a silk blouse, inspired by the one from Temperley as seen on Pippa Middleton.
Blue and green RepliKate earrings
I now also finally have clear pictures of the green and blue crystal replikate earrings, which were inspired by the ones as seen on Duchess Kate during the African Cats premiere in London in 2012. I was very nervous about how the replikates would turn out, and I can't even tell you how happy I am with the result. They look almost exactly the same, the oval crystals set in a 18 ct gold-plated setting and they are of good quality, without being too heavy! There are still a few pairs left, ready to ship, for US$ 54.
Silver infinity loop RepliKate necklace
Below are also two pictures of the replikate necklace of Duchess Kate's white gold and diamond infinity loop necklace. Sporting it for the first time at the end of last year, Kate has been wearing this necklace a lot since, including several times during the Royal Tour Down Under, and has become one of her favourite pieces of jewellery. I really loved the delicate pendant, but the original, costing more than 4000 GBP, was quite out of my reach, so I myself am very happy to now have this silver-plated replikate necklace in my possession. It has been a bestseller in the Tatiana's Delights Etsy shop for the last few months, but I won't be ordering anymore when these sell out, so if you are still contemplating on buying one of these (US$ 59) , don't hesitate too long!
As I already posted on the Tatiana's Delights Facebook page, I am currently totally obsessed with the new Starz' series Outlander, about Claire, an English woman who accidentally time-travels from 1945 to 18th Century Scotland. I always have a thing for costume design and Claire's 1940s wardrobe is just a-ma-zing! Since I know there are quite a few Outlander fans amongst my readers I added a few of Claire's costumes to the Etsy shop.
And last, but not least: with the holiday season approaching I thought it would be useful to let you guys know the dates on which you can last order from the shop to have them delivered in time before the holidays:
Thanksgiving: 17 October
Hannukah (first day): 7 November
Christmas: 14 November
New Year's: 21 November
Please be aware that the Etsy shop will be closed from 22 December until 4 January 2015. This means that if you want anything delivered in late January or early February you will need to order before 22 December to be sure it arrives in time!
That's all folks!
Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend! I didn't do anything in particular except for enjoying the Autumn weather while safely inside with a nice cup of tea and a good book.
Here in the Netherlands, Autumn now finally arrived in earnest, and I am loving every bit of it, mostly because it gives me a good excuse to refresh my closet by adding a few staples for the coming colder months. I already purchased the black leather over-the-knee boots and leopard loafers from Dune, but there are still a few other items on my wish-list ;-)
Are there any items on your Autumn wishlist? I'd love to hear!
I already posted about it earlier this week on the Tatiana's Delights Facebook page, but I thought I'd make things official by posting it here: This Friday there will be another Shop My Closet event on Tatiana's Delights! :-D (I planned to do it on Thursday, but due to work and study obligations I didn't have sufficient time to add all the items to the Tatiana's Delights Tictail Shop.) Anyway, for those who are new to the concept: here is a short overview of how it works :-)
From now you can browse the items in the Tatiana's Delights Tictail shop. Tomorrow and Friday I will add more listings, including several more replikates. Everything is currently listed as 'Out of stock', because this is the only way I can make the items visible without the possibility to purchase them, so everyone will have the opportunity to browse all the items beforehand.
The items will become available to purchase on:
Friday 10 October 2014 at 12 PM (noon) EDT (New York)
That is: 9 AM PDT (Los Angeles), 6 PM CEST (Amsterdam) and Saturday 3 AM EST (Sydney)
NB! Please be aware when you place your order that items aren’t ‘safe’ when you put them in your cart. Unfortunately this is not an option Tictail offers, so I can't do anything about that. So if you really want to order anything in particular, I am afraid speed is key...
