A little leopard goes a long way! In this case, it's really a more like a little leopard lasts a really long time. I bought this coat in 1997! Is that vintage? Must be. I spotted it in the window of an Anthropologie in Chicago and I couldn't live without it. Good, good, purchase.
Every year I bring this coat out in the brisk fall weather and it never fails to catch the eye of my friends. I was heading out on this particular evening to celebrate my 10th anniversary of meeting my lovely husband. He loved the outfit. And I had a ton of fun shooting this the day after our first snow in NYC! I kind of have a feeling the girls will be eyeing this coat soon. So I'll enjoy it before it goes MIA to my daughters' closet.
I pulled this look together thinking of romance and a way to show off the new tights I got in the mail from TightsPlease.com--a wonderful site for legwear. The Chevron Ribbed Tights are from Levante. They were/are fabulous. An incredible texture--subtle yet sassy. You've got to check out the leggingsoptions. The lovely ladies at TightsPlease sent these and a super pair of Falke knee highs--the quality of those is equally exquisite.
What else? The shoes. Ah, the shoes, these booties are made for walking. They are from Stuart Weitzmanand are divine. The Stella & Dot Bello Bangle my Marc Jacobs watch, plus a scarf from Theodora & Callum round out the accessories. The Impact Colorblock Ponte Skirt is from Brooklyn Industries.
Now what about you lovelies? What have you been wearing? I hope you'll join us today for Monday Mingle. It's the day where I team up with my fashionable friends, Jill from Glamamom.com and Kristin from BonBonRoseGirls.com to talk style. Today I get to play host. And as a fun little treat, I've got a fun little fashion notebook to give away.
