#getnoticed: Connecticut's Most Stylish
The best style flows from the boutique to the street. You've seen them, people who turn heads, who cook up their own style. CTNow has stopped them while we're out and about on the Connecticut streets and asked them, how do you do it? Know someone who should #getnoticed? Tweet us @gotoctnow with that hashtag and we just might find them for a photo.

Cat Neptin, Mystic Blues Festival
Cat Neptin had always wanted a great pair of cowboy boots. A week after she finally treated herself to a pair, her hound dog turned her right boot into his snack. Not giving up, she Googled "boot tips," found a pair for $18 and the boots were saved. It was those shiny boot tips that made us chase her down at the Mystic Blues Festival to find out more about them.
CTNow: Where are the original boots from and what drew you to them?
C: I had always wanted red cowboy boots. But at my age, I figured I'd go for something more subdued. I think it was Country Outfitter, I thought they were really cute. I ordered them and was just in love with them. I wear them to work, out, with jeans. I wear them with anything. Cowboy boots are so versatile, you can do a lot of things with them.
CTNow: All together how much did the shoes cost?
C: O, like 60 bucks.
CTNow: How did you pair them with today's outfit?
C: My younger sister has a fabulous closet. I shopped through her closest and thought this dress would be so cute with boots. She told me the dress was $250 from a boutique in Pasadena.
CTNow: What would you say to someone dressing for an event like today's Mystic Blues Festival?
C: Dresses, something to keep you cool. And then maybe a wrap for later. Here we're on the water and it does get colder at night.
CTNow: How do you pair high-low items like you did with the dress and boots?
C: Here's what I have learned, anything is possible. All these trends you need to have this and that, the clothes that I get at Goodwill are the clothes that people ask me where I got them. Just have fun, that is my summer tip.
