Leopard Coat, At Long Last

BB Dakota Hazel Leopard Coat / Madewell Sweater (similar here) / Steve Madden Over the Knee Boots (similar here) / James Jeans Twiggy Jean / Modcloth Aviator Sunglasses / Esprit Leather Backpack (very similar here)

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.


  1. this jacket is amazing! i've been dying for one just like it


    1. I really suggest checking this one out. It's so pretty in person! And when it's on sale it's pretty cheap too! :)

  2. Great look! Love the over the knee boots!

  3. I really need this coat in my life. I desperately want to buy it. Actually I have been saying for so long that I've wanted a leopard print coat too. Then after so many months I realised that I have one from ages ago. Unfortunately it is not fluffy and the tones are a bit muted but it's still a leopard print coat and I must bring it out to wear again. You look stunning.

  4. thanks for you comment darling!

  5. Swoon - what an amazing coat:) You look beautiful. xoxo

  6. I loooove it!! It's such a fabulous coat! ^^ I never realised you live in New England. I always imagine it being the most beautiful state during the fall. Like the Ameican version of the actual England. I would love to visit one day, and see those white picket fence roads and red barns they always show on TV myself haha ^^ xo

  7. I love this coat, gorgeous look.
    Thanks for your comment.
    See you

  8. Love it! I've also had my eye on a leopard coat, but have yet to pull the trigger.

  9. Amen! I must agree, the leopard coat has somehow become a closet ESSENTIAL. I love mine. So much. And I love yours, and it was worth every gift card.
    Chic on the Cheap
