Monday Mewsings


Sigh, Fashion Friday slipped by without a post! Too much to do around the Holidays... but that is what this post is all about!

Coco and I stopped by Merrifield Garden Center for a photo shoot last week and I got some super shots of her! She didn't get to sit on Santa's lap though... more on that later!


Merrifield Garden Center is a fantastic nursery nearby, and they are often seen on HGTV when homes are being landscaped, and every Christmas they have the best Holiday displays ever! Dozens of Christmas trees, all decorated in different themes, and more colors of Poinsettias than I ever knew existed!


Coco never ceases to amaze me when she is out in public! Although most of the soirees we attend are indoors, I was not sure how she would behave in an open space with so many breakables in it... you know the saying 'You break it, you buy it'? 


I had my concerns but they were unfounded, as Coco conducted herself with aplomb and grace! For the first 30 minutes of our visit, I couldn't even begin to take photos myself, as the customers were flocking around her with cameras and phones a flashing!  It was great fun!

So, without further ado, here are the best pictures from an absolutely fun afternoon! 




Love how'haughty' she looks in the photo above...




The golden glow of the above photo is so pretty, as is Coco's regal profile!



And my favorite one below, she looks like a fairy princess!


Oh, and about Santa? He was available for photos from 5-9pm and when he was asked if he would agree to having a photo of Coco in his lap...he said 'Only after all the kids are gone'. I understood his reluctance, as he would think a cat would be uncomfortable around a bevy of people and kids...but that's just because he hadn't been introduced to Coco, the Couture Cat! 

 It was cold and rainy and I didn't want to stand in line with Coco for 4 hours, so we didn't get a photo with Santa this year...but maybe I can plan for it next Christmas!

Wordless Wednesday



For those of you who are dreaming of warmer weather, summery dresses and sun glasses...


And cute little frocks and some sidewalk shopping...

And sun puddles, too!


In between dreaming, don't forget to Hop!

Weekends here are kind of uneventful for Coco lately, as I am working weekends now. So it's during the week that we have our photo shoots and excursions around town.


I'm still busy decorating the house for the holidays though... so some new Christmas photos will be appearing soon!

Fashion Friday



If you are one of our Facebook friends, you got a glimpse of Coco's new Holiday outfit, gifted to her by our sweet friend Carol of Naked and Hungry.

But for those of you not on FB, this will be more than a peek of Coco in her Christmas finery, out and about on the town!

Here she is visiting Wylie Wagg, the fun and yum filled pet boutique near us!



You might recall that one of Coco's bodyguards visited Wylie Wagg a couple of weeks ago. He was on a reconnaissance mission for Coco.


Coco didn't sample any of the Howl-i-day cookies, but she did meet a snowman she was rather smitten with!


She perused the shelves and found a nice lounger/scratching pad that she put on her wish list...




And a cat cannot have enough furry beds, can they?


Would she like the Faux Fur one?
Yes, please!


We both loved all the Holiday decorations, toys, clothes and even the Christmas Tree!





Too soon, it was time to leave, and of course, Coco even looked stunning in her new gold, quilted Max Studio bag!

Wordless Wednesday


Everyone knows that models often have to work under the most inclement weather conditions, but Coco put her paw down (for just a second) and said No to Snow!


Even a 'bed' of pine boughs wasn't acceptable. . .


So, bundled up like a Lumberjack, Coco consented to a few photos in a snowy setting.





Oh, and just like Coco in the snow... Don't forget to Hop today!

I found this trendy bag for Coco at Marshall's last week!

I think she likes it!


I have a 'thing' for cat carriers and have lost track of the number of ones I have bought,  used once and decided 'Not perfect' and then donate them to a fund raising raffle or sell online.

But I think I will always keep these three for Coco, as they 'fit' her lifestyle and statuesque model physique just right!

Fashion Friday


Coco and I had plans to sashay around town, with her dressed up in her Christmas finery (and me in the cute Kliban Cats Christmas T shirt that one of our friends gifted us with). . .


But, we didn't make it out of the house to do that, so it's on our 'To Do' list for next week. Coco says we can't have Brighton upstaging her!


Coco has a few Christmas outfits, red velvet with a matching Santa hat. . .


Plaid taffeta and velvet with a Christmas Candy inspired hat. . .


This years outfit was gifted to us by our fellow fashion savvy friend
 from NakedandHungry.com. 


I think Coco would ask to have a coordinating hat, as Coco (and I) 
are not sure the Tiara is the proper accessory. . .


I may be able to fashion something out of some tinseled garland and starry tulle, 
something like a halo, but I certainly am not a milliner. . . 


So we may have to go with the Tiara this year, and put a matching hat 
on next years Christmas wish list! Stay tuned for next weeks Fashion Friday
 post and see what we came up with!
