When will it be winter already??

For no reason in particular I seem to have accumulated a lot of leopard print in my life as of late...and most of these pieces are much better suited for cold weather, and not the 100 degree heat we're experiencing in TX at the moment.

Particularly this one.

This is an Ivan Grundahl  faux leopard cocoon coat that my mom got at a sale at the If boutique in Soho. My mom and I are both big fans of Ivan Grundahl, so it was an exciting find, especially at something like 80% off..ridiculous!

I wasn't with her when she bought this coat, she had it shipped home. I had to try it on as soon as I saw it. The plushy fur is so soft, and the coat is reversible, so you can wear it on rainy days too!

Worn with Balenciaga ankle boots & a vintage Razza elephant necklace.

This is a leopard print skirt found at the Goodwill for 99 cents. The print is great and the length is perfect for my Miu Miu studded ankle boots.

Worn with a shearling bomber jacket by Richard Chai, an antique kimono sash that my mom got in Tokyo long ago, and of course, the Miu Miu ankle boots

I found this Junya Watanabe leopard dress/shirt at the If sale too...I was so happy, I had almost bought this top in Dallas a few months before, but here it was on sale 75% off!
If it weren't for the fact that it is made of wool it would be perfect for today's weather. Even though it was hot in New York I wore this outfit around town.I have to say that as much as I love this top, it's very impractical. My left arm was virtually imobilized in it. A fashion straight-jacket so to speak. 
Worn with running pants, an LGB flannel, and Y-3 bag. Weird outfit, I know.

I guess winter isn't too far away...I'm just impaitient to wear some of these things! 
Till next time...xo Jane

Absolutely loving your leopard print pieces! I'm especially liking the dress/shirt in the last photo. It looks great paired with the red plaid!

LOVE LOVE LOVE. The first jacket is the best winter thing.. And I love the leopard top too! Only it's weird that it's wool but still a summer-looking piece. I hate when they combine something like that..

Leopard print is pretty classic, isn't it? Looking forward to fall weather and the clothes that come with it!

jane i dont know how you do it, but seeing your mom i figure it is in your DNA, but you just have this true gift for mixing patterns and prints and textures w/o looking like a clown. even though there is a lot going on, there is a harmony and cohesiveness to it. it's amazing how you do it! i esp. love the 2nd outfit. and when it comes to animal prints i like them as natural as possible, but black/white print is truly exceptional! and i LOVE that kimono sash/scarf!!!!!!!!

-ps. i love your tights in the 1st ensemble. they are not something i get to wear, but i love them on other people!

I'm usually not a fan of leopard print, because most people don't pull it off well. But, it's a different story with you. You make leopard print look elegant and chic, especially in that last picture!

I also am more of a shoe girl (over a handbag girl) myself!

Photo of christina

Photo of Isabel

you look as beautiful as always!

I feel the same way about winter. While I really like summer, winter clothes are so much more fun! I love your new coat, and you certainly can't beat a 99 cent skirt. My aunt is obsessed with leopard print. She claims it is a neutral, and I totally agree!

Photo of Isabel

The leopard cocoon coat is EPIC! I've never seen anything like it! So beautiful.

Photo of Ofelia

So much leopard. I don't like that print. But vogue's like this.
Nice day!

I think it's really cool that you like Ivan Grundahl - a Danish designer. You should come to Copenhagen and see his shop here. I think I have seen you wear Vibskov as well. They are both very loved here in Denmark.

Hi from Denmark,

I know the feeling, I can't wait for cooler weather, so bored of my summer wardrobe that I am craving some layers and my leather leggings!!

Photo of Jigsaw Jones

I love leopard stuff. That coat is amazing, as is the impractical leopard top. I'm in Austin, so I feel your pain with this effing ridiculously hot weather.

Photo of Alex Dom

Photo of maria

Photo of Simone Renee

Leopard print is one of my absolute most favorite things. It has the potential to be very tacky, but if worn right, it is flattering, timeless and beautiful. Both of your finds are incredible!

I love leopard print, when done right it is extremely chic!

I can't wait for winter either! Today, it hit about 66 degrees though (a HUGE change from the 80 degree weather of just yesterday) so I was temporarily happy :)
