Pin-Up Style Cat-Themed Clothes, Standard for All Bookish People
It is a truth unversally acknolwedged that a bookish person must own cat-themed clothings. As you may know, I am a poet, in addition to doing this plus size pin up style blogging fun. As such, having tons of books, writing poetry and loving Jane Austen, I must, therefore, own cat-themed clothing. Ha ha ha. And I do! This adorable tunic! I love the colors: turquoise, fuchsia, pink, white, tan and black. What doesn't go with this little tunic? Plus, all bookish people must own cat themed clothes -- it's standard issue.
Why It Works as a Vintage Style Outfit for Work
I work with books and it has cats on it. Duh. Just kidding. The tunic with leggings is very professional. The thick belt in the middle gives a pin up silhouette instead of a boxier look. Ballet flats and cardigan are also work appropriate and have a little bit of bling.

The dress is from Target clearnace back in 2009. Someone from Project Runway had the same tunic and wore it in the flashback post-episode interviews that they infuse in the editing. I was like, "Really? Samesies!" Anyway, the tunic I think was around $8. The leggings are from Old Navy, $10. Same with the flats. The belt was from a thrift store in New Orleans that served plus sizes and is sadly closed. The cardigan was a gift from my old roomie and longtime friend, The Inspired Momma. (Shout out!)
Plus Size Pin Up Styling Tips
This tunic could look very boxy without a thick belt in the middle to help enhance my hourglass silhouette. So, as with most outfits that go from flowy or boxy to curvy, I added the belt in the middle.
