I saw the below image on Vintage Aphrodite, and loved it as immediately as I love any cat that I see. Part of why I love this photo is because I have already crafted a back-story to this girl in the picture. For instance, she definitely owns a cat. Probably a short-furred black kitty that snubs everyone except her. She wears wing-ed out black eyeliner every day, and doesn’t own a single lipstick. She washes her hair every other day to both be eco-conscious and eliminate the amount of time she spends on perfecting her coif. People often see her in unusual vintage dresses with high collars.
