Just so you're aware, expect puns anytime I wear the cat boots. Somehow wearing cats on your feet just causes a lack of seriousness. You know, I was wary of the tapestry trend at first, but I bought a pair of Bass loafers with a tapestry print awhile back and to my surprise found that it was more versatile that I thought it would be. With a closet full of brown shoes, I liked the change up in texture and color, almost like a camouflage. Or maybe I'm just forcing these to go with everything because they're covered in cats, that could very well be it too. It wouldn't be the first time my old lady tendencies got the better of me...and I'm sure it won't be the last.

When I add something this crazy to my closet, I always like to think about how much I loved (and still love) wearing crazy stuff of my mom's from the 70's and how, if I ever have children, I'll love passing stuff like this down to them.

What do you think about the tapestry trend, or even trends in general? Do you follow them? Do you not? Does it matter?
