cat like speed

My first animal print! (don't worry its fake) Found this 50's coat at ReRuns Warehouse. It had originally been at their boutique ($$) but was moved to the warehouse after they noticed the ripped button holes. Hello? A little stitch here and there and we're ready to go.

I have to say I can definitely see fashion blogger influence in my shopping choices now and then. For instance this coat may not have stayed on my radar if it wasn't for Jessica rocking her fabulous leopard coat in the back of my mind! Do you find yourself doing the same thing?

To be honest this isn't quite what I wore today - had to trade this puppy in for a warmer coat+hat+mittens and the heels came along in a bag - rubber boots required in the ice/snow!

Worn with Express jeans, Gap sweater and thrifted Oh Deer! shoes from Beacon's Closet.

I do the exact same thing. If it hadn't of been for all the wonderful fashion blogs I am following, I never would have even considered applying to Ann Taylor LOFT. And now that I have the job I cannot WAIT to buy all these new cute trendy clothes.
All of you guys' blogs inspire me to spend money. It's actually quite ridiculous... =]

Always,

Such a fun find! I hope that the weather holds less snow/ice in the near future so that you can actually rock the coat out and about!
