I present unto you the result of the demise of a Christmas gift card: a leopard coat.
Backstory time! Do you even realize how long I’ve wanted a leopard coat? And how hard I’ve been kicking myself over not buying that infamous Asos one last year during the winter sales when it was only $19!? I was trying to be ‘practical’ and at that time was under the impression we’d be staying in California for at least another year. So fast forward to this decidedly cold, undoubtedly New England winter and I’ve been stalking eBay for that bad boy, only to see it sell here and there for $100+. No beuno.
Then suddenly, shortly after Christmas, this BB Dakota one popped up on my radar (sidebar: at my old job we worked with that model, so of course I’m linking to that particular site because she was just the nicest; I love seeing her around the interwebs!). And you know what? I kind of liked its weird colorway better. And then it was on sale! And then gift cards died so I could finally satisfy that very specific leopard itch. And it was good. Amen.
Also, I was very determined to show you the inaugural outfit even though that ridiculous winter sun was photobombing the entire shoot. Rude, winter sun, respect the leopard.
