Wow! Today we had the absolute pleasure of meeting Lil Bub, the best lil internet cat in the entire world. (Well, we think so anyway.) We asked her the hard-hitting questions and got back some equally intense answers. Lil Bub for President! —Katie
Hey Lil Bub! Did you have fun in Philly?
Do you just absolutely love Colonel Meow?
Do you like fish?
Do you know the meaning of life?
Are you sitting on Whoopi Goldberg's lap tomorrow?
Uh oh, someone's getting sleepy! Good luck with your busy week, Lil Bub!
Okay, I have been SO into temporary tattoos lately. And luckily when Hello Kitty just isn't cutting it, I can head over to Etsy to get my fix. My favorite right now are these black and white woodland creature tattoos from Burrowing Home. They almost look like they could be real, but luckily they wash off with soap and water so you can slap these bad boys all over your face if you feel like it. The shop owner sells prints as well, just in case you want something a little more permanent.—Katie
Stay Home Club is a great website that features different items for sale from a multitude of artists, and they're all great, but I have to say my favorite on the site is the actual logo done by artist Olivia Mew. It's a cute little girl and her cats and they're staying at home! Never has the internet related to something more. Let me wallpaper my life with this logo, TBH. The site also has a ton of cool patches for making all those denim vests you own look even better, and even some adorably perfect "Girl Gang" handkerchiefs.—Katie
Here's our favorite look of the week: Our Display Director Brian has traveled everywhere from Walmart to Paris, but our favorite piece of this look is his panda patch!
I am the Display Director yo!!! Basically, I get yelled at by every creative person out there who thinks all Urban does is steal their ideas. Frankly there is nothing new under the sun and we have probably been doing it longer than they have. I guess that is just part of working for "The Man." UO is an easy target.
What are you wearing?
Haha, you kind of caught me on a good day. I am going to sound so well travelled!!! I am wearing a black hat from WalMart, a Henrik Vibskov button up, a vintage Oakland Athletics tee I found in San Fran, Black Levis 510s, USA sock from DC, and oxblood MOMA boots from Merci in Paris (I love that store).
Here's our favorite look of the week: Our Partnerships Marketing Manager, Adam Cantiello, sports our Stapleford Drewes shirt with the cutest accessory we've ever laid our eyes on.
My name is Adam Cantiello and I handle the marketing partnerships for Urban Outfitters. I am from Philadelphia, PA and I'm a huge hockey fan. You can usually find me spending my Friday nights at The Standard Tap.
What are you wearing?
Clarks desert boots (not shown), Levi's jeans, Stapleford Drewes shirt, and a jacket from H&M.
Who or what do you look for for style inspiration?
I like to look for clothes that are practical for all occasions.
What is one item of clothing you could never live without?
My Levi’s or Vans.
Who is your friend? Does he like to wear any clothes? If so, what's his favorite look?
This is Dump Truck, and below is him in his hand-me-down baby Ralph Lauren hoodie. He couldn’t walk it it, so we had to cut it to a vest.
Not able to sit at around all day at home and play with cats? Well now you can sit around all day at work and WATCH cats, with Vinecats. Problem solved, cat ladies. Now, gimme gimme more, gimme more, gimme Gimme More Cats.-Ally
In honor of the Puppy Bowl airing on February 3 (yeah, same day as that other bowl), Discovery put up this puppy cam! Puppies! Of course the little idiots are sleeping right now, but that's not going to stop me from creepily watching them anyway. The actual puppy bowl is also sure to be a delight, especially since they added hedgehog cheerleaders this year. Squeeeal.—Katie
Unicorns are wonderful, imaginary creatures, and we should all be thrilled that they're popping up on everything from T-shirts to iPhone cases. Unicorns may be hard (okay, impossible) to find in real life, but thankfully easy to find on clothing. Rainbow hair, don't care.—Katie
UO Unicorns iPhone 5 Case
When I glance at this quickly it almost looks dirty, but in reality it's just cute li'l unicorns hanging out with some balloons. Nothing wrong with that.
Cooperative Applique Unicorn Flat
I'm going to throw in an emoticon here: XD Because that is the emotion these shoes make me feel and I don't think words are able to convey that properly.
Gift Card Charm Necklace
The most majestic necklace I've ever seen.
Junk Food Haters Gonna Hate Unicorn Tee
No one could hate you while wearing this beautiful unicorn shirt. When you wear this, you should also throw in some Unicorn Hair Extensions so you'll be perfectly coordinated.
Urban Renewal Fuzzy Unicorn Necklace
Actually, just kidding. This is the most majestic necklace I've ever seen.
Truly Madly Deeply Galaxy Unicorn Boyfriend Tee
Unicorns + space = the most perfect and Tumblr-y T-shirt in existence.
In the spirit of getting it together, let's take a look at some things that can help your apartment start looking more like a real human's house instead of the home of disorganized wolverines. Who knows, maybe you'll get inspired.—Katie
Hello, gentlemen! Now, admittedly, I may not know much about men's fashions. Y'all are tricky. I have no idea what dude stuff is cool, but I do know that there's been an influx of cat shirts recently and you guys should be wearing them. I promise you'll look good—it's impossible to not look delightful in a cat shirt. Plus, I'm going to let you in on a little secret: ladies love cat shirts. If you wear a cat shirt to a bar and act like a normal human, we'll probably love you. Okay? So go get those cat shirts!—Katie
Black Metal Kitty Tee
Cats and black metal will make you look cool and sensitive, which is the perfect combination of things. But you'll have to resist the urge to fist-pump with other bros over how amazing this shirt is.
Riot Society Meow You Doin Tee
That line coming from a cat on a T-shirt? CUTE! That line coming from the dude wearing the T-shirt? NOT CUTE. Let the cat do the talking.
It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia Kitten Mittons Tee
A Kitten Mittons T-shirt will most certainly make you look awesome, but unlike Kitten Mittons, this shirt is not one size fits all.
'Sup Cat Tee
Why wouldn't you want to wear a shirt with a cute cat in glasses and a cap? WHY?
Toddland Embroidered Chambray Shirt
This shirt is on sale right now, and I hope to see it sell out as soon as this post goes live. It is a chambray shirt embroidered with kittens shooting lasers out of their eyes!!! The only thing cooler would be, oh yeah.. NOTHING.
It's time for you to get your shit together this year, litter-ally.
New Year's Eve resolutions are hard. Does anyone manage to keep them anymore? I don't think I've even bothered making a N.Y.E. resolution since like, 2003 because it's such a hopeless cause. This year, I've figured out an easy way to stick to some common resolutions, and it happens to involve pizza and beer. You're welcome.—Katie
Collapsible Pizza-To-Go Box
1. Bring lunch to work.
No one said it had to be healthy.
A Cat's Life By Gemma Correll
2. Read more.
Reading cartoons about cats is just as prestigious as reading War & Peace, I promise. If you're looking for a way to be terrible all year long, the book A Year Of Living Sinfully would also be a fantastic way to start off the new year.
Moxi Lolly Roller Skates
3. Be more active.
Why run on a stupid old treadmill when you can rollerskate?
Brooklyn Brew Shop Beer Making Kit
4. Learn something new.
Most people want to learn a new language or something, but let's not kid ourselves with that. Learning to brew your own beer means you're one step closer to your REAL N.Y.E. resolution of never getting off the couch again. (If you're underage, mix together different sodas and imagine.)
Kozyndan For Society6 We Came Together Art Print
5. Become more cultured.
Cat art is art, too, people.
Find out what our Urban Outfitters employees are asking for this holiday season!
I’m Daisy and I’m the Canine Brand Ambassador at Urban Outfitters.
Joshua Prince aka Dust La Rock. I'm a designer/artist, art director for A-Trak, co-founder of Fool’s Gold Records. I'm currently residing in the LBC and I am a purveyor of all that is strange and exotic.
What do you love/loathe most about the holidays?
I don’t have much family so the holiday have always been a bit empty in that regard, but have always found some friends to spend it with. I do enjoy Christmas, strangely enough.
I love cats—a lot. Like in the creepy and obsessive eHarmony kind of way. Illustrator Kaori Mitsushima has created a Cats I Know wall calendar for 2013, based off her blog which is filled with, well, CATS. Thanks to her, every day of every month can now be filled with them too. Woooo! Cat party! -Ally
If someone doesn't get me this Rabbit Print Cardboard Case from Oysho I'm going to throw a kindergarten-style temper tantrum (yes, I'll lay face down on the ground and kick and pound my fists at age 23). I'm allergic to rabbits and this is the closet thing I'll ever be able to get to owning one. Plus, there's freakin' polka dots inside. I mean, COME ON! -Ally
Go ahead, try and tell me that any guy wearing this printed Hello Kitty Shirt designed by David Scalese of Deter wouldn't be totally drool-worthy. I can't even imagine all of the awws you'd get in this. -Ally
TGIF! How happy was I to come across this amazing tumblr. My favorite is the Canadian cat (obviously) with her bedroom eyes and $100 pillow! -Jennilee
Ryan McGinley has done it again! Today, Wednesday, May 2, get ready 'cause the streets of SoHo are gonna get shut down for this blockbuster show. Simultaneously, Team Gallery will be presenting two new bodies of work by McGinley. Animals is a series of photographs about wild creatures and their interactions with human bodies (located at 83 Grand St.) and Grids, a body of work that studies the faces of fans at concerts (at 47 Wooster St.). -Maggie Lee
