I’ve been on the hunt or prowl for the perfect leopard fur coat for years. I mean YEARSSSSS. So when I stumbled upon this leopard beauty at a Macy’s store, I had to try it on. Then when it fit perfectly right off the rack, I knew it was meant for me (I know dramatic).
The thing with fur coats, at least for me, is they have always swallowed me or gave me unwanted volume in the worst places – like all over my body.
I’m petite, but also have pretty broad shoulders. So often times fur coats would just add extra volume to my upper half, which I hated.
But this jacket was the perfect amount of thickness of faux fur and the perfect amount of spots ;). Some times I’m afraid of rocking too much animal print with my dark hair – don’t want to be mistaken for a NJ housewife haha.
If any of you seem to have the same problem as me and have been searching for the perfect leopard faux fur coat, I think this coat may be for you! I got lucky and scored this for 30% off, but even at full price, I think it’s still affordable and reasonable for the fit and quality of the jacket.
The brand is Avec Les Filles and I’m told it was created by the daughter of the founder of BCBG.
For sizing reference, I’m 5’2 and took this coat in a size XS. It’s still a tad bit loose, but I think it’s supposed to have the oversized look, which is great because I can still have room for layering.
I wore this out for our snow day today and it kept me so warm. I’ve seen sizes pop back up on the Macy’s and Avec Les Filles site. If you’re size isn’t available, just keep checking back ;).
I’m slowly, but surely starting to feel like myself again. I still have days where I’m completely wiped out, but my level of energy seems to be back to normal for the most part. I’m at a stage where I’m starting to be more aware of everything I eat and being super careful of how hard I push myself when working out. The things I’m currently missing most right now is sushi and coffee!
