Treasures: Cath Kidston

I don't like Cath Kidston, as a rule. For the same reason that I don't like Jack Wills, Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch and Superdry. It's unoriginal, overpriced tat for the middle classes to pretend they are creative and stylish.

However, I saw this skirt in a magazine last week and I had to have it. It was beautiful! Whilst there, I had a look around and picked up a couple of cute things that I just couldn't resist.

I saw this little piggy medal and I squealed like one of those cute little trottered ones! I adore pigs, they've been my favourite animal for as long as I can remember. I have no idea how I'm going to wear this but I will find a way!

I needed a ticket holder desperately after my standard South West Trains ones split and this little Royal Stan one was too cute to resist. Look at that cute little doggy! It taps into my patriotic spirit with the Union Jack motif and, of course, it's in red!

Then I picked up this little keyring as I was a couple of quid off free delivery. I really like the vintage Olympics motif going on.

For now though, there will be no more treasures until pay day. As tempting as it is to choose clothes over food and travel to work, I really don't think that's practical.


  1. I went shopping on Saturday and noticed quite a lot of Olympics-related stuff, which was quite nice. (I still hate the logo and the mascots still scare me though.)

    "unoriginal, overpriced tat for the middle classes"
    Gosh, I so agree. Like you, however, I'm not going to hate an item they make which I would otherwise like, just because of the brand.

  2. The beginning of this post made me laugh because in my final year at uni, my tutor said very similar things and I spent the whole year trying to hide my cath kidston bag from her! xxxx

  3. Haha I Couldn't agree more with your definition: It's unoriginal, overpriced tat for the middle classes to pretend they are creative and stylish. Brilliant line :)

  4. I quite like the Cath Kidston pattern and have a purse or two from there, but agree that it's probably overpriced. I'm a sucker for a pretty floral print! The skirt looks sweet xx

  5. I completely agree that Cath Kidston is bloody overpriced, however there will always be a few exceptoons. I adore that skirt, it's uber cute!


  6. These stuffs you picked up are so cute!
