Reunited


I used to love this coat so much. Then, one day I brought it to the dry cleaner and they shrunk a good inch and a half off the sleeves. I've never been able to look at it the same way since, but now I'm realizing I may have been a little too hard on the poor thing. It's not my coat's fault that the dry cleaner didn't know what they were doing and really, the coat fits ok -- just not as perfect as before. Also, I have a new found love for it because I didn't realize that you could see the leopard print lining! How fun is that? I always knew it was there, but I thought it was hidden from the world. I love the new perspective these photos have brought to this old coat of mine :)




I was wearing:

Cotton On Sweater
Banana Republic Coat
Zara Pants
Zara Boots
Urban Outfitters Bag
Seduce Necklace
Danier Gloves

Thanks so much for visiting!

  8. Love that coat! Besides, shorter sleeves are kind of in. Just push them up like you did, or wear them down with a long sleeve sweater or top peeking out the end. Great styling.
