Sometimes, you own pieces that absolutely demand to be worn together.  Sometimes this is a good decision.  Other times, not so much.

Voodoo Vixen atomic cat print dress styled with vintage accessories

This pairing might be a "not so much" for me... I got the atomic kitty print dress just before I went on vacation last summer, and I found the Paradise Kittens pumps while we were on the road.  Clearly, I had to wear them together at least once, but I think the pairing might be a miss for me.  The pointy toes on the shoes paired with the above-the-knee hem on the dress just doesn't quite do it for me.  Honestly, the just-above-the-knee hem isn't my favorite in any case, but I'll make an exception for novelty print kitties.  And fortunately, it seems that not all Voodoo Vixen dresses are the same length... I tried on (and, ahem, purchased) another one of their pieces that's been on my wishlist for a while and was pleased to find that the hem is a few inches longer, which ends up being much more wearable for me.

For novelty print kitties, though, I will make an exception.  Although, in the future, probably not with these shoes.
