The rest of the Alice Hannah range is well worth checking out too, especially if you’re looking for something different from the average high street knitwear selections. (P&P on all items is £3.95 to UK addresses.)
We may currently be experiencing a glorious Indian summer in some parts of the country, but winter is drawing ever closer.
Never mind – here are three cat jumpers from online fashion outlet, ASOS, that won’t put too much of a dent in your bank balance.
Top: Clive the Cat Jumper available in sizes 4 – 18 for £19.50. (Also available as part of the ASOS Petite range for £30.00.)
Left: Monki Cat Jumper available in sizes XS, S and M for £25.00.
Right: Blue Vanilla Cat Jumper available in sizes S, M and L for £25.00.
(Size availability correct at time of publishing, but I’ve noticed larger sizes tend to sell out quite quickly on ASOS.)
As any horror fan will tell you, 666 is the number of the beast. But there’s nothing scary about the trio of fluffballs on this eye-catching t-shirt by Mad Old Cat Lady!
The Number of the Beasties is a loose-fit tee with a flattering neckline, made from super-soft eco-friendly TENCEL (a fabric made with wood pulp from sustainable tree farms). Available in sizes S, M, L for £25.00 (inc UK p&P). Don’t dilly dally if you’re thinking of buying one of these t-shirts – the first run sold out pretty quickly!
And, just so all you cat men out there don’t feel neglected, the same design is available as a cotton men’s t-shirt in sizes S – XL for £20.00 (inc UK p&p).
Here’s one for all you hardcore Cat Ladies out there! The I Love You But I’ve Chosen Cats T-shirt is available for just £8.00 from young fashion label Veuxdoo, and is described as suitable for sizes 8, 10 and 12.
If you fancy this tee, don’t hang around as it’s a one-of-a-kind item; Veuxdoo specialise in one-of-a-kind vintage and custom clothing for ‘the fashion forward modern girl on the street’. But I also happen to know that the Veuxdoo team are obsessed with cats, so it’ll definitely be worth entering ‘cats’ into their shop search engine from time to time to see what pops up!
Check out this cute cat print dress, new from Dorothy Perkins! It’s 86cm in length and made from polyester (hand wash only). Available in sizes 8 – 14 for £28.00.
If you fancy one of these, I’d advise getting a move on – I’ve noticed cat print dresses tend to sell out very quickly on other sites (this is the first time I’ve managed to find one with the full range of sizes in stock for ages)!
