And the verdict on the plaid pants is…

2pm. Thursday afternoon.

Marcy and Penelope Kitten are bickering over who gets to sit on the comfy blanket on the bed.

Cynthia jumps out from the closet in her new plaid pants. (40% off from LOFT!).


Cynthia:  Ta Da!

Marcy and Penelope Kitten stop bickering and stare. 

Cynthia tries again.

Cynthia (jumping): Ta Da!

Marcy:  Is that your Halloween costume? Or are you joining a Scottish clan of jesters? Or running away with the circus?

penelope kitten (squeaking joyfully): bozo!

Cynthia checks out her new plaid pants in the mirror.

Cynthia:  Okay, so I admit, they’re a little… loud.

Marcy:  What?

Cynthia:  They’re a little loud.

Marcy:  What?

Cynthia:  I said, they’re a –

Marcy:  Hunh? Can’t hear you over the cacophony of the plaid.



Marcy:  Plus, are you positively sure you want to parade around in horizontal stripes forming a large box-like shapes across the widest part of your hips and thighs?

Cynthia checks out her plaid pants from all angles, considering each one very carefully.

She reaches a verdict.

Cynthia:  You know what? I see what you are saying…  and… I don’t care!

These pants are fun. These pants are comfortable. They are loud and brash and awesome. And I am in love with them.

Cynthia boogie oogie oggie’s in her plaid pants.

penelope kitten:  yay yay. luv the bozo bottoms!

Marcy:  Well, it is your bottom and you can boogie your butt adorned in anything you want.

Cynthia:  Yeah!

Marcy:  But you should really boogie to bagpipes otherwise the Ringling Brothers will be confused.




*So remember when I sent out a PSA post that the entire LOFT store was on sale for 40% and it seemed like such a big deal?

Well, I have since come to find out that LOFT is regularly 40% off. And sometimes even 50% off or 60% off.

So. In conclusion. Never ever buy anything from LOFT unless it is on sale for at least 40% off. Ever.

    You look super cute but I don’t think I’m a fan of the pants 🙁 Thanks for the Loft PSA, that is very good to know. Maybe you should make some tiny plaid pants for Marcy to wear!

    You look so cute and I admire your courage. It’s not easy wearing plaid and risking the ridicule of cats.
    Why do stores do that with discounts? How do you know which days are 40% off and which are 60%?

    • Reply MarcyVeryMuch October 30, 2015 at 5:28 pm

      Sign up for their email and you will find out every day and sometimes even a few times every day about their sales. It’s craaaaaaazy!!

    You look cute, way to rock the plaidsters! And anyhow, cats, Bozo wore blue, not plaid.

    • Reply MarcyVeryMuch October 31, 2015 at 12:17 pm

      Hmmm… maybe I should get some rockin’ blue plaid pants too!! LOL I don’t know why but those crazy pants make me happy!

  • Reply TheLadyK October 30, 2015 at 8:28 pm

    I love ’em!!!! You look great! Both with and without the jacket!
    And I didn’t think bagpipes or Ringling Bros. even once.
    (I did recall my purple ones back in 7th grade. I told you about those, the ones made of felt. At least they didn’t have elastic stirrups at the bottom.)

    Sorry, kitties – Cindy wins this one!
    They do not make her look big or loud or hit at the wrong places!
    Please wear them when you’re with me sometime! I always wear black – we’ll never clash…

      I will! I still love the idea of those purple felt plaid pants! My cats are so mean to me!

    LOL…yes, I totally agree with your shopping advice. Ann Taylor, Gap, Banana – those places are always on sale! Love the pants. You’ve built up quite a plaid collection this season haven’t you?

    • Reply MarcyVeryMuch November 3, 2015 at 1:13 pm

      Ahahahahaha! I have you fooled! These pants are the only plaid piece of clothing I own! I’ve just been talking about them so much it seems like there must be more!
      Isn’t it crazy and possibly bad for their business that I will only buy things from those stores when they are on super sale?!

  • Reply Liz November 3, 2015 at 1:00 pm

    Oh yay! For a minute I was worried where this post was headed. You know I’m a champion of wearing fun, comfortable, and happy clothing regardless of how “loud” it is. I think these are super cute and fun. And I appreciate the tip about LOFT. I work regularly with Catherines, and women always complain about the prices. But they seriously have 30%+ off at all times, so…whenever I see a price tag, I slash 30% off because I know it’s never going to cost me more than that.

      Yes! Exactly! Those stores have conditioned us that the full price is not the price we will ultimately pay. I had no idea LOFT played that game but since I’ve been getting their emails and seeing how they seem to slash prices almost every day – I will never buy anything from them for full price.
      I am so glad you like the plaid. Now I am vindicated and my cats can stuff it! 🙂

    I like the pants! You look cute. And happy! I had brown and black and white plaid pants in high school. This makes me want to go to my parents’ house and look for them!

    • Reply MarcyVeryMuch November 15, 2015 at 8:30 pm

      Ohhhhh – go get’em! What goes around comes around and they sound super stylish!

  • Reply Stacey November 18, 2015 at 5:30 pm

    I really like the look of these pants because I do love plaid and they are so retro looking. In fact, I was surprised to hear that they are from Loft because they look vintage. The black pointed flats add to the Doris Day and Mary Tyler Moore as Laura Petrie, vibe.

    By the way, we adopted another black cat, a 6 month old sweet girl, right after Halloween. Now we have 4 cats and a few neighbor cats that wish they lived with us who hang around.

    I need to catch up with your fun posts!

      Thank you, Stacey! We miss your posts!
      So excited that you adopted another cat! Your house sounds like the best house which is why all the cats want to live with you and your family! Yay!
