The closet of Brooklyn-born deejay Kitty Cash is energizing. She starts Monday off the way personal trainers are always telling you to by opening up with a serious pow — no sad case of Sunday blues lingering in her look. In fact, she struts. Day two she’ll give you one reason alone to get excited for winter: that coat. By day three you’re reminded that this night cat has a day job, too. She works in the Communications and Marketing Department at G-Star Raw, and while this won’t be your corporate go-to, she sports a smart alternative to the jacket-and-pants hum drum that I, for one, want to try and mimic. If you can believe it, the wardrobe just keeps getting better from there.
Scroll down for a whole week’s worth of looks. Like all good deejays, the best part of her outfit is the song she paired it with.
Day 1: My weekend was so good that it gave me an extra boost for Monday. This was girls’ night — we had tickets to see “Amazing Grace.” We all know how hard it is to lock in a date to see your friends in the city so it was all about having a moment! I opted for this “POET” t-shirt by Elizabeth & James, high waist vintage leather pants, Nasty Gal heels and this color-blocked coat by C/MEO Collective for that extra flair. P.S. I used this perfecting skin tint by Glossier that had my skin on fleek! Elizabeth & James t-shirt, vintage leather pants, Nasty Gal shoes, C/MEO Collective coat. Today’s Soundtrack: “Flawless” – Beyonce
Day 2: That’s the “I am so going to get that taxi” stare. Super casual day, so I wore a pair of G-Star boyfriend jeans, an Obesity and Speed destroyed tee, my go-to Adidas wedge shell tops and one of my favorite jackets by Kaal E.Suktae. I love that the bottom half of the jacket comes off and you can wear it as a green peacoat, especially when you’re over wearing your usual black one. G-Star jeans, Obesity and Speed t-shirt, Kaal E.Suktae jacket (similar here), Adidas shoes. Today’s Soundtrack: “Dead Body” – Chet Faker
Day 3: Today I knew I had a ton of running around to do. My CMO was in town so we had back-to-back meetings and about 3 back-to-back dinners (I don’t know where the food goes…seriously!) So I wanted to be comfortable but still make a statement. I went with this beautiful mustard and baby blue jacket by Acne to add that pop of color. One of my go-to jeans that I am beyond in love with: these denim wide leg trousers by G-Star and my flat brown Alexander Wang boots. Acne jacket, G-Star denim trousers, Alexander Wang boots. Today’s Soundtrack: “Hotline Bling Remix” – Erykah Badu
Day 4: My Thursday nights are more like my Friday nights, so I don’t really want to talk about what time I got home… With that being said, it was really about being able to hold up in my shoes all night and feel comfortable in every type of setting. I started by NYU and shot a video with my friend Kenna, then headed uptown to a Hennessy Ceremony honoring Troy Carter (which was actually somewhat formal)…then at NeueHouse to celebrate my friend, Melo-X, and his project, “Curate.” I opted for an all-black look with a crazy bold jacket. I am wearing a cropped turtle neck top by Obesity and Speed with Raw for the Oceans denim jeans ( A collab with G-Star and Pharrell), black booties by Reed Krakoff and this metallic two-tone jacket by Discount Universe. There was a lot of love in the air… Obesity and Speed cropped turtleneck top, Raw for the Oceans jeans (similar here), Reed Krakoff booties, Discount Universe two-tone metallic jacket. Today’s Soundtrack… “Jumpman”- Drake and Future
Day 5: TGIF! I ended with a work meeting at the James hotel with whiskey ginger and fries to celebrate a productive week. To gear up for the weekend, I put together a meet-up with some friends and Serato. It took place at the Serato loft, where deejays come together and learn new tricks and have jam sessions (kind of like a nerd session where we get super excited about gear and updates in Serato). I decided to go for a VFiles Sport Plus set, a dress and matching jacket with bold colors. I paired it with my Puma sneakers (designed by Solange) and a red lip courtesy of “Dragon Girl” by NARS. VFiles Sport Plus dress and jacket set (alternative dress option here), Puma Solange sneakers, NARS “Dragon Girl” lipstick. Today’s Soundtrack:
Today is that one day where everything goes and nothing else matters…my birthday! I told myself about 50 times I didn’t want to do anything but the deejay in me couldn’t help it, so I decided to throw a party. My friend and I planned it in about 8 minutes. It took place at the Soho Grand Hotel with some of my closest friends as hosts. When it came to the outfit, I wanted to embrace my body for me and celebrate myself coming into my womanhood unapologetically. So POW. Zana Bayne leather harness skirt, Equipment blouse, Saint Laurent shoes … and hair curly and free!
