The Cupcakes & Cashmere Faux Fur Leopard Coat Outfit
I came across this Cupcakes & Cashmere Elvina Faux Fur Leopard Coat last month and fell in love with it. You all know I have a weakness for leopard print and as it’s freezing right now, faux fur is a must for me. I didn’t know it came in a size XS though as I could only see sizes S, M and L in stock, so I was debating whether or not the S would fit or be too big. The next morning, my basket was empty as it had sold out! I didn’t know until later that day that Emily had worn it on her blog, and that’s why everyone had gone to purchase it and it had sold out completely, which I was gutted about.
I kept checking back daily and it still wasn’t in stock, then to my surprise about 10 days ago, an XS had come in stock, only one left (I assume someone returned it) and I purchased it during the Black Friday sale on Shopbop. Talk about meant to be, right? It’s perfect! The colour and print is amazing, the faux fur isn’t too thick, and it fits really well with a much appreciated zip up instead of hook and eye.
I’ve never actually purchased another bloggers clothes before as not many of the pieces have been my style or have either been a bit too expensive for me, but Emily’s Cupcakes & Cashmere line is one that I love. The clothes are so wearable and they have a more affordable price point, so I’m happy about that. I’m sure I will probably gravitate towards more of her clothes in the future. Have any of you ever bought any fashion bloggers clothes before? I know a few of you purchased my PAIGE Lorna Jeans that I collaborated on with Paige Adams-Geller, but what about an actual proper collection from a blogger?
Anyway, I wanted this Cupcakes & Cashmere Faux Fur Leopard Coat to be the focal point of the entire outfit, so I styled it with all black pieces. I chose my Citizens of Humanity Rocket in Axel, a GAP Long Sleeve Jumper, my Jimmy Choo Melba Booties in Black, and also my new Chanel Wallet On Chain Bag in Black, to glam it up. As the temperatures are much too cold at the moment, I also added in my Topshop Faux Fur Leopard Hat to bring a little more colour and print to the outfit. I will admit though this coat was zipped up to the top when I was walking around, it was too cold to wear it open for longer than 10 minutes. What do you think of my outfit? And do you like the coat?
