Faux Fur Feelings

27 Apr

It’s been a bit of a bonanza week for me (yes, yes, I’m well aware it’s only Tuesday but I’m counting back to last week)! Among my many CD purchases I’ve actually gone out and bought some clothes – it has to be said at this point that I don’t go out and buy clothes every week like some people. My reasons for this are that a.) I don’t have the money to spend lavishly like that and b.) my wardrobe wouldn’t be able to handle the bulge if I did. But alongside some much nedded jeggings (you know, those jean-look leggings that are ultra comfortable and cheap), I picked up this little number:

It’s not real fur, obviously! I’m not like that but for some reason this hip-length three-quarter sleeved leopard print jacket really appealed to me. After wearing it to work yesterday I found an extra use for it too: it keeps you really, really warm. Sweltering at one point actually but maybe that was because I was pegging it to actually get to work after  a business-related detour. Oh, and it feels lovely. And it was half-price! Bargain! So I guess the big question really is if you really want to wear this coat like me or is it just that little bit too… OTT? Of course, I think it’s fabulous – what about you?

    I love this jacket!! Definitely fabulous, and I would definitely wear it… I’m glad to see you only posted this a couple of days ago so there’s still a chance I could grab one at my H&M x

      Gabby! It was the last one left! If you’re gonna hurry, hurry now! No doubt there’s bigger stores down there though so maybes you’ll have peeps with better taste 🙂

    Have you tried wearing the jeggings you picked up with this top? I think it would make an excellent ensemble! So bold!
