THE FASHION CHRONICLE: WINTER COAT

Vintage Leopard



In my last post I introduced you all to my [WINTER BOOTS]
Today I am going to show you my second love child.

In a bid to get kitted out for winter I have been on the hunt for a winter coat.
I knew in my mind that I wanted brown faux fur.

One morning I googled 
'Brown faux fur coat'
and a little image of a coat appeared at the side.
It was a brown, faux fur coat with LEOPARD PRINT.

Immediately I clicked on the image and was whizzed over to Ebay.

The coat of my desire was a vintage Topshop number.



I was mostly attracted to the leopard print collar that runs all the way down the outer seams.

The seller was describing the coat as a size 6.
In the winter I like to wear jumpers and I am not a size 6 at the best of times so I emailed her and asked if she thought I would be able to squeeze into it.

After about half an hour I recieved a reply and the lady who was named Jade was very helpful and explained to me that it was more of a size 8.

I was sold.
Vintage faux fur jacket, BE MINE!
… And is was.

Within two days she had arrived.


There is a little bit of unoticable damage to the right hand side.
I think something has been spilt on the faux fur and it has gone kind of matted and feels rough to touch but aside from that the coat is in good nick.

She smells old, I love the smell of old forgotten about clothing.

This winter I shall be popping the life back into her.

My little vintage leopard.

Meow.
