That Leopard Coat

Untitled

Anyone else notice that Zara cut this leopard coat right before selling it? I remember the TRF vid showing the calf length version.  My eyes were bulging: ‘omg the perfect long vintage coat and it’s not vintage.’  Then they hacked it to above the knee to sell to the public.

Leopard coat: Zara. Try Asos or BB Dakota.  Dress: Thrift/vintage. Similar from Asos or Oasis. This swing one is almost identical.  Tights: H&M. Chelsea boots: Underground originals at T&V.  Similars by Urban Outfitters Asos or McQueen. Bag: Coach

I’m wearing it so obviously I got over it but I instagrammed asking why did they cut it? Maybe they thought it wouldn’t sell in a longer version. Feels more like a jacket now instead of a coat. “I love your jacket!” “Thanks” I reply wanting to add “its a coat! its a coat!! Why cut the ruddy thing?
Ok my 2 minute rant is over.  I still love it.  It’s furry enough without too much bulk. Wore it with an old black lace swing dress and chelsea beatle boots. 
ps. My shop’s updated with one of my leopard coats here

    I think that cut suits you just fine! I love how it’s vintage but not vintage… Anyways, I love Zara these days, they have so many beautiful pieces! Especially in the coat department.
    Great outfit dear!

    I don’t know why they cut it. So many times they change things and they were fine the first time around! It is still nice, but more similar to other coats I have seen out there. In the longer length it would have made more of a statement so I agree with you!

      I agree. They made it like others you’d get. They’d have been the only high street shop that had the balls to go with full length.

    Sorry but the links you provided for the boots were not nearly as exciting as the pair you’re wearing, never mind the price. I’m not mad at you though. I wish I could see the coat at the longer length. One reason I started making my own clothes was because the manufacturers cut for the masses, which is why they cut off that coat. I thought of you today when I thrifted a beautiful kelly-green double-breasted blazer made in Germany, gorgeous wool. I thought, “What would Karen do?” I bought that sucker and brought it home, that’s what I did. Just wish I had your legs so I could style it the way you might. 🙂

    • Karen says:

      Sorry Jean. It’s hard finding boots really close to these ones. I’ve been looking I found one but its cobalt blue suede.

      Now as for that kelly green blazer I’ll take that!!! Just wear it with oversized black denim, cuffed and metallic gold brogues. Done!

    OMG you are rocking it, so jelly! I LOVE leopard coat, but I just look SO BIG in it. Or maybe havent found the perfect cut for me yet. Stradivarius is getting there. It would be cool in calf length though. xx
