Hand painted pink pillows
I'm pretty sure it was all the pink that initially drew me to Jessica Leigh Jones' TUFT Etsy shop, but in the end, I stayed for the cats. The fashion designer, writer, and illustrator currently resides in Nashville with her boyfriend and their gorgeous cat, Olive, who no doubt inspires her line of feline-inspired goods.
"You Have Cat To Be Kitten Me" Crop Top
Jessica, who named the brand after her favorite shade of pink ("A Candy Tuft"), cites growing up in the grunge laden 90s and being in a teenager in the bubblegum pop-tinged 2000s as major influences behind her aesthetic, which also includes bejeweled headbands and bow-sleeved dresses (I'm also a fan of the "Bitches Love Witches" design).
Cats and Strawberries Canvas Zippered Pouch
If you're feeling feline, pick up a daring crop top and matching tote in her hand painted "You Have Cat To Be Kitten Me" print, or cuddle up to one of her whimsical cat pillows, available in various sizes and color combinations.
