leopard vintage coat (1)
This coat is not only fabulous, but it is extra special to me because it was my grandmother’s. She passed away last January, but every time I put it on, I am reminded of her quick wit and unconditional love. Did I mention she was also quite stylish in her day?

    I love this look. The leopard coat is perfect and the cap toe booties and just the right bit of glam.

    I just discovered your blog and will definitely be checking back!!
