Leopard and Stripes :: Linen coat & Sheer lines

Leopard and Stripes-24

Earlier this month, my dear friend Jean and I had a lengthy conversation about leopard coats.  It all started with an email where she shared her latest shoe acquisition.  She took a quick picture for me to see, and the angels sung when I saw her wearing this leopard coat with the shoes.  Unbeknownst to Jean, a stampede of questions flooded her email.  We discussed quality, fabric structure, cost per wear, sizing… the list went on.  This coat is made from a beautiful linen material which is perfect for my Southern California winter and Jean’s Boston spring weather.

After ordering the coat, I made a promise to myself that the only way for me to keep it was if I reworked my Zara leopard one (maybe adding leather pockets or changing it to leather sleeves).  I try my very best not to have similar pieces in my closet, so I love personalizing items to give it a unique personality.
