The more I see it, the more I like it.

Another shopping... oversight on my part. I wandered into JCPenney (which is full of surprisingly awesome things) and noticed this leopard fur coat was on sale for $50. I blame you, other bloggers, for wearing your leopard coats and making me buy this.

Anyway, I was anxious for a chance to style up this leather skirt I thrifted for $7, so when a last minute blogger dinner came together, I slipped it on, and it is beautiful. I wasn't sure I could get away with tucking a sweater into it, but it mostly works and at least I was warm!

I really love going out to dinner with other bloggers, while other company might want to part ways after food and coffee, they can always be relied upon to say things like, "What time is TJMaxx open until? Oh, 9:30... so we've still got over an hour, we should go."

And then I bought another sweater. But I had a gift card, so it's totally okay.

  1. Thankfully, I just bought a leopard coat on sale, so I don't have to worry about you making me want to buy one since this coat is so cute and totally worth it. I definitely am a stronger believer in that seeing other bloggers wearing cute things makes me want them, too... woops!

    But hey, that coat is totally versatile, and there is no such thing as too much leopard.

  3. I blame TJ Maxx for not opening early enough, more than one time I have shopped at another store to kill time because of this! :)

  4. I agree that other bloggers sure manipulate your buying decisions. I have fallen prey do this but its all worth celebrating when you put that purchase to maximum use. So a good buy girl and love how u have paired it with black and metallic. To see how I wore my leopard coat, visit http://www.myriadmusings.net/

  5. I would love a leopard coat like yours. JCPenney has been kicking butt lately. You look great with all the pieces pulled together. That sweater looks great with the leather skirt. Heather

  16. I think the coat suits you perfectly!

    Also I am going to have to stop cutting through the mall when I use their parking garage because I have to go through JCP and they have really ramped up the cute factor in the past couple of years.

  29. JCP has really stepped up their game lately! Our mall is the pitts, but I can always find something cute (and affordable) there. Also, wish I had bloggy pals to share stuff with in person too! That would be so nice.

  30. Love the way you styled this, Lyddie. The coat is very pretty.
    I know I asked you before and you said you don't work as a stylist....I don't know what your career is, but I think all I've seen has lead me to think that you would be so suited for fashion merchandising, fashion buyer or stylist. Hmmmm...stylist to the stars?

  31. Bloggers are life life suckers of my wallet! I saw one on atlantic-pacific yesterday and bought it from asos with the 15% off sale code today for 47bucks! Wish i had a j c penny in the city! One thing that stinks about living in downtown chicago, no jcpenny! I got that silver sweater too. Cant wait to see the gold one you were talking about too!

  38. This coat is so gorgeous and it's perfect to glam and take any outfit to another level! I don't blame you for buying it, I'm sure you'll create very elegant and chic outfits around it! And I like your metallic sweater; I have something similar and you just gave me an extra idea to wear it tucked into a pencil skirt!

  51. I know what you mean about seeing something on other bloggers and then wanting it. Every time I see a leopard coat I think how much fun it would...but then how ridiculous I would feel walking into work so I hold off haha

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hahha, I think every girl needs a leopard coat! They're completely over the top but that's the great thing about them. I love the lighter colors on your, it looks like a really expensive coat with that version of the leopard print.) And it's made to go with the leather skirt!

  61. Oh I want a leather skirt! Preferably the skater style that looks better on me.

    I understand the whole- you see it so much so you like it more. I've had that lately. Good luck controlling the urges fashion blogs give!
