I Commissioned A Portrait of My Cats

I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, I love me a good vest. And even more so when I can top it off with a leopard print coat. Because that’s just how I roll. I try not to wear this jacket on days when I have to teach. I feel a little too much like Janet Snakehole in it to be totally comfortable. But that all changes on non-teaching days and I embrace my inner Janet Snakehole.

And check out this almost-too-cute-for-words portrait of my adorable cats, Conkers and Penelope, that was custom made for me by the amazingly talented Lauren Moyer at Oak Press! I strongly recommend that you visit her Etsy shop and, when you use the code “sartorialsidelines15,” you will get 15% off your purchase. Seriously, check out her work – you will not be disappointed!







Look at her amazing work....

Courtney, how can you be even more awesome than you already were? I love that coat and think you should wear it all the time! Also, the portrait is adorable! I got pictures of my cats commissioned too-- but as comic book characters. Shameful, I know.

You rock that vest so well, love the cute little brooch on it. And topped off with a leopard print coat? Nothing better than leopard print. I love vests but I always find I can never style them on myself, its weird
