|I LOVE this dress, its so FUN!|

The material is soft and comfortable with just enough stretch. The pink is a pretty shade of bubblegum that is feminine, but not too girly or bright. I love the whimsical print, retro-styled black cats accented by atomic styled swooshes, stars and star bursts in white and black. The neckline is scooped with three slit cutouts accented with satiny black contrast piping that makes the slits stand out against the pink material, the same material is covering the buttons that run down the front of the dress. The slit neckline is flattering to the bust-line and eye catching without being immodest, the dress closes with a hidden side zipper. The belt is slim, made of a satiny material with silver grommets and a fabric buckle, it helps to draw the eye to the waistline. The belt has one small issue, the loop is stationary and attached just past the buckle so if you have a narrow waist the belt end will hang down if it is not fastened, I used a safety pin to remedy this. The skirt is full and finished with handy pockets slit front pockets trimmed with black piping. I love the addition of the pockets not only as a cute accent but because they are functional and convenient, I was happy to be able to carry my cell phone and lipstick in my pocket! I prefer to wear a petticoat and this skirt is not quite a full circle but big enough to accommodate a large petticoat. I wore it with a Malco Modes Michelle crinoline in black and accessorized with vintage gloves, wedges and hat at The Freedom Flag benefit for the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans with Pinups for Patriots. It was a hot humid day but the flowers were blooming and the grounds of the Vetarans Home is beautifully landscaped. I enjoyed a nice time visiting with veterans, listening to live music and spending time with my fabulous Michigan Pinups for Patriots sisters, such a diverse and amazing group of ladies. What a privilege it is to represent Pinups for Patriots and honor our veterans!

I have also worn this dress without a petticoat to church and it looked just as lovely. The Kitty dress is a very wearable vintage style, comfortable and versatile. It can be worn casual or dressed up to suit your own unique style. I have received compliments each time I have worn it and inquiries about the brand of dress, many people have asked because they thought it was an original vintage dress.
