Here Kitty Kitty....

via Google Images and Bazaar

Every It Girl (yup MK and Alexa), fashion blogger (hello Liz and Rumi) and editor (the new Mademoiselle of French Vogue Emmanuel Alt and of course Joanna) has one, and despite that (ha!), I am still dying to get my little hands on my own. I mean, I am certainly not the first to do a leopard print coat post (obviously) and will definitely not be the last — they are so 1960s but so of-the-moment. They have been popular (not just for Italian grandmas) again for quite some time now (was Mary-Kate the first?), so long in fact, it seems they might become a true wardrobe staple rather than a passing trend. 

It is no secret that I love me some leopard and pretty much own every other clothing item in the print, but I have been on the hunt (hehe, get it) for quite some time now and have not succeeded in finding a coat. I want one in a small print similar to Alexa's, which may in fact be cheetah. I have found a few that fit the bill, but they have been out of my price range, and the cheap ones seem to be the big fuzzy kind, and I am not into that. I have seen a few that work on etsy and ebay, but I am scared to buy a coat without trying it on. So, what is a girl to do?

love leopard print. i just purchased a leopard print skirt this week. I agree with you, buying a coat online without trying it on is a definite gamble. Good luck with the hunt!
