For the Love of Maine Coon Cats....and all Cats.....and Lace Tops too

WARNING:  This blog entry contains more than one reference to cats......if you do not like cats or would rather read about Tattered Rose stuff, please scroll to the end of the blog entry for clothing related snippets.

We have a tabby coloured cat named Duster, that is probably at least part if not 100% Maine Coon...he is huge and beautiful and looks so much like these cats.  We don't really know his origins because he was rescued from someone who had to give him up.

He bonded with my husband instead of me when we brought him into our home 5 years ago 'cuz he was locked in the computer room with my husband for the first few days so as not to scare our two girl cats.  They are the best of buds......Duster follows me around and likes to be near me but doesn't have the utter adoration for me that he has for my husband.

Oh.....and here is a sneak peek at a few of our Spring items, just arrived:

Muted colours for Spring at Tattered Rose...and for those of us who prefer dark or bright colours, we will always have those!

Sympli the Best, Edmonton

Sympli the Best in Edmonton, largest selection of Sympli the Best clothing, Sympli the Best clothing online, Sympli, Sympli the Best stores, Simply the best clothing
Please excuse the blurry photographs....these were taken from the Sympli the Best website:

Tattered Rose has a huge collection of jersey and mesh clothing from Sympli the Best.  We have the BEST (pardon the pun) displays and ideas on how to wear Sympli clothing. For those of you who are not head-to-toe jersey gals, we will show you how to incorporate jersey into your existing wardrobe of wovens and other fabrics.
                          (this is the view across the street from Tattered Rose)
Our shop is located at the base of a condo building in a tranquil, post card-like setting on a beautiful tree-lined street fairly close to downtown Edmonton.....not your average retail location.  When you walk inside the store, you are stepping into a different world......where you can't help but feel welcome.   

We have the expertise of a clothing designer (the owner) who knows fit, what colours & shapes suit each individual woman, who will honestly tell you whether an outfit or garment looks good on you!  And before she says it with words, you will be able to tell by the look on her face:

scrunched up face = not so good
happy, smiling face = fantastic 
puzzled, zombie stare = not sure....maybe try a different colour or size 

If we don't have the size/style/colour of Sympli the Best that you want/need....we will gladly order it for you!
Can't beat that!

Our Cat Duster

Is it any wonder we who love cats love them so much?  They are curious, animated, strange, creative, wonderfully independent creatures who seem to think that the world revolves around them and that when a new piece of furniture is brought into the house, or when things are moved around, think these are new places that are solely for them to sleep and/or sit upon......or is it just my cats?

Tutu Cute!

We at Tattered Rose, being the eclectic vagabond gypsies that we are.....LOVE tutu's and crinolines...whether we are of the wearing age OR over 20 and just hang them in our boudoir to look at and adore....they represent innocence, prettiness, a little naughtiness and a certain je-ne-sais-quois.

New Home Decor.....

At Tattered Rose, our home decor is an extension of the romantic vision we present in our clothing and just can't wear it.
By the way, we just received some of our new home decor.....a few mirrors, Paris clocks, metal artwork with a giant shoe or handbag, salvaged looking with lettering (oh be still my heart!)....all incredible items to tempt you♥
