Dear Wendy readers are some of the most intelligent, stylish, super cool people around (it’s a proven fact), so, when a commenter suggested I create a regular feature for them to recommend some of their favorite products, it was a no-brainer and Reader Recs was born. Today’s recommendations come from Kicia, who lives in Alexandria, Virginia, with her sister, four cats, and a large dog who thinks she is a cat. She enjoys shopping, craft beer, taking naps, and hanging out and drinking Scotch at old man bars. She also enjoys dressing up cats in outfits just to watch the expressions on their faces. Check out Kicia’s recommendations below which, yes, do include cat-related stuff.
I absolutely love this tee-shirt. Not only is the picture amazing, but it’s comfy and long. The shirt runs a little small, so definitely size up (I’m usually a size 4, but I needed a medium). The company also makes many more fun designs, such as this stripper sloth tee.
This is the perfect date night dress. It’s form-fitting, but the longer length makes it very classy. This also runs small, so sizing up is necessary.
I love these because I’m terrible at coordinating eye shadow colors. I probably have at least 10 of these eye shadow quads and all of them look amazing. They even have little instructions on the back to tell you where to put each color on your eyes. They’re usually available on sale too. I don’t think I’ve ever paid full price.
I bought these for my sister for Christmas. They may be the greatest invention ever. [Yes! I featured these on my holiday gift guide! — Wendy]
A book of cat poetry, if cats could write poetry. Some of the poems are seriously funny. [This is also available as a calendar, which my parents gave me for Christmas and I love! — Wendy]
If you have some products you’d like to recommend to the DW audience, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with links to five recommendations. (Write “reader recs” in the subject line please). Your recommendations can be from any store or website, but they need to be accessible online — and I would love it if at least two items could be found on Amazon where I am an affiliate. If your list is a good fit for the site, I’ll ask you to write a brief description of each item/ explain what you love so much about it.
