Jacket: vintage, Tee: UO, Stockings: CVS, Boots: Payless

It's getting really frustrating having overcast day after overcast day. Makes it impossible to take decent pictures since I'm not invested enough to have some fancy lighting apparatus. lol.

Anyway, I've been on the search for a leopard faux-fur jacket since high school and I finally found one today at Buffalo Exchange for only $15! Funnily enough I was actually planning on searching for a faux-fur jacket today at some local vintage stores, but ended up going to the more "mainstream" shopping area (i.e. H&M, ZARA, UO, etc.) instead. As luck would have it, I stopped by BE first and found this jacket among a crowded rack of boxy tweed blazers and nylon rain jackets. I think it was fate.

I plan to wear it with black leggings and flat boots like Kate Moss here...



Or maybe with knee-highs and a studded belt like NANA...



Oh, I also now have a new addition to my boot collection:

For some reason Payless boots seem to really work with my feet.

Ah, I've been wanting to get the same payless boots. Are they any comfortable?

I love love love the cheeta print shrug. I've been wanting to get a shrug for myself, but the local thrift stores haven't been so kind to me :(

Hmm. I've been considering picking up new black boots. And Payless is totally in my price range...

suzannepie said...

have these same boots and they fit like a dream.
however the first thing i did upon getting them was not wear them, but to paint the silver findings on them with black nail polish. :PP

Myriam said...

That jacket looks so nice! I can't wait to get my leopard heels!

saray said...

the jacket is fab!!

For Love not Money said...

Fabulous jacket - I think leopard is one of those classic prints that goes with everything and makes you look instantly punk-chic fabulous (which of course you do!)

The red lippie and laddered stocking take it to just the right level of trashy - Hope you wear this get-up out to a great concert...
