the company of kitties



Outfit Details:
dress - Erin Fetherston for Target
lace jacket - thrifted
Blanca shoes and bracelets - courtesy of Nine West

While these photos are from my little apartment in Brooklyn, I'm actually in New Orleans at the moment. I have so, so much to post from here - I'm already absolutely in love with this city and its inhabitants...and the food. It doesn't hurt that our hosts are probably the best hosts in history, and that Bobby and I are accompanied by two of my favorite gals. More on that, later!

While in New Orleans, I have been in the company of an incredible group of gals and gents. The funniest thing about our conversations is how quickly we are to take our phones out, showing pictures of our pets. Everyone is trying to one up the other with pet-photo-cuteness; you would think these were our children (they are). I just had to post this photo with Vester creeping behind me, because after almost two weeks without my little kitties, I'm really starting to feel guilty that they're not on vacation with me! I need to teach them how to video chat.



p.s. Apologies if you haven't been able to reach me by email, as of late. I have been trying to step away from the computer (and my phone, which has the shortest battery life) as much as possible, while spending time with family (and now enjoying New Orleans). I will plan an epic day of email responses, but if it is urgent, please tweet to me and I'll search for your email!

  3. Keiko, I totally get your pet love! I have he absolute beat pic of me at 8 years old posing with all my collected cat stuff. It's ridiculous and awesome.:) when people would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would say a cat.

  4. Ah he is so sweet.... I couldn't understand people like you, crazy for their cats and dogs, until Diego came into my life.... he is the tiny tiny yorkie of my sister and I'm in L.O.V.E. with him. And I do actually videochat with him almost every day... my mother holds him but I totally call because of him! :D

  62. This post just completely stunned me. I was riding my bike yesterday ( I live in New Orleans), and I saw someone walking down the street and thought, "She looks like that style blogger Keiko Lynn." Maybe it was you, maybe it wasn't, but CRAZY! Have fun in our glorious city. There is no other place on Earth like it. Even with all its challenges, it's hard not to fall completely in love with it.

  69. I love the jacket but nowhere near as much as I love the one from the previous post.

    Sharing pet love is only normal. Having a wee cat/dog brings so much joy to one's life!

  70. Love your jacket! Can't believe you found it at a thrift store!
    I'm glad you're enjoying Naw Lens haha, I live about an hour away (in MS) and it's always fun to visit the city. What places have you been (where have you shopped??).
    Of course you must have Cafe Du Monde (I'm sure your hosts have taken you there!) also there's the coolest glasswork studio on Magazine St. if you want to check it out. Every time I go I find the little nooks and crannies in the city which is fun no matter how many times I've been there's always new things to discover!
