Autumn Evening

Jacket- vintage c/o LA Vintage, Dress- Kate Moss for Topshop, Clutch-vintage, Shoes-Cathy Jean, Watch-Michael Kors (similar style), Bangle-vintage, Ring-vintage, Earrings-H&M 

A girl can never own too much leopard. It is one of those unique prints that is funky and at the same time classic. When LA Vintage sent over this gorgeous leopard coat from the 60s I had to resist the urge to wear it right away. It needed a few alterations to give it a more modern feel. I took it in on the sides, brought up the hemline, and had it re-lined. It came out just as I hoped. It will be one of those pieces that I will cherish for a lifetime.

OMG GORGESOU Taylor!! One of my favorite outfits! The hair just tops is all off. LOVELY!

Robbie said...

That coat is gorgeous Taylor, I'm sure it's an item that you'll wear forever. Love how you've paired it with a vibrant print, something you wouldn't instantly think of doing. It looks fab though!
Hope you enjoyed your weekend.

Sarah Klassen said...

looooove the outfit on you!

That coat is fabulous—more fun, too, knowing that there probably isn't another lady that will walk down the road wearing the same one—it's truly yours... and so fabulous with the clutch, I might add. Great look on yo :)

Hope your weekend was lovely*

The new additions you made to the coat are great! It looks so well-tailored. I never would have paired it with such a bright print, but now that I see how you made it work, I can't wait to mix & match myself!

Gorgous outfit, I never would have paired leopard and the poppy dress but it really works.

I have the purple version of the dress and need to start wearing it more!

Taylor, you look gorgeous- great mix of colour and pattern that really works. The shoes are like the Stella Mcartney ones and I love the simplicity of them! You are right we all need a bit of leopard in our lives! Hope you had a great weekend. Katie.xx

The leopard jacket is a great piece, but I also really love that dress! Now that it is getting darker and colder outside, it seems like any touch of colour, especially a bright one, makes me happy.

November Grey said...

Love those prints together. Love love love! And what a great idea to alter the coat. I mean, I alter so much else, I don't know why I didn't think of it before. I'm always finding "almost perfect" faux fur coats.

DiamondsandTulle said...

That's an amazing coat Taylor! I've never thought of having a vintage coat taken in at the sides nor the lining changed. The lining idea is BRILLIANT! How much did the alterations cost? I'm sure you'll cherish this jacket for years!
