Hello everyone! You all probably recognize me (maybe) from my illustrative series with Dandy during the Holiday season. Now, I’m back and I’m here to blog about pretty much anything and everything. My first post is to celebrate the Summer Solstice aka the longest day of the year. What other way to celebrate that than to make some fun popsicles that scream “SUMMER?” [Read more…]
Hi, everyone! Let me start by introducing myself: My name is Kristen, but everybody calls me KiKi. I manage a style blog called Cats in My Closet and am launching a fashion magazine called Monachopsis in the fall. I also moonlight as a fashion stylist and, on occasion, have done some freelance writing, most notably for Charleston City Paper and Charleston Grit. Oh yeah, and I wear a lot of wigs.
I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with Holly & Dandy Boutique on several posts for my fashion website, and when she reached out to me about becoming a regular contributor for the Dandy blog, I absolutely leapt at the opportunity! On my way to the store to pick up outfits for my first post (a fairly quick walk from my office), I came to the realization that it’s incredulously hot outside. Like, nearly 100 degrees hot. When did that happen?!
Now I don’t know about the rest of you, but once the temperature creeps in the 90s, my main priority is trying to figure out how to wear as little clothing as possible while also avoiding sunburn. It’s all about ease and, most importantly, comfort, so I’ve showcased three effortless outfits below that are ideal for the steamy summer months.

Recently, we had a fun little photoshoot at my house! We we’re playing around with Halloween DIY costumes inspired by Dandy pieces (that blog will be up soon), when I thought the best way to get in the mood was to make the whole house smell like fall! So I went on Pinterest, of course, and found this great and insanely easy DIY to make the whole house smell like Autumn in a bottle! [Read more…]
The candles are lit and the coffee is out, so despite what the Southern weather is telling us our surroundings are screaming at us that fall is coming! For most, fall is a fan favorite, from the layered clothing to everything pumpkin flavored what is there not to love? Since fall is right around the corner I thought why not encourage the excitement with a list of why fall is the best time of the year.
