LEOPARD SPOTTED RAINCOAT?

Murphy's law has it that it never rains when you are wearing a rain coat, perhaps because it is commonly perceived as a utility item, and not a fashion accessory. So it follows that when I have an umbrella with me, it doesn't rain either! I changed my mind about the raincoat's function when I walked into Bershka recently and saw this little animal print parka. It is as light as a feather, and can be folded up neatly to fit into your hand luggage for travelling, or perhaps just worn as a fun item. I thought it was a little funky, adding something quirky to my otherwise rather quite closet. Now I look forward to the next rain, unless Murphy continues to reign...

  1. Fab outfit! I love the mix of stripes and leopard, and the red bag is the perfect accent!

  2. That coat certainly doesn't look like a raincoat which I remember as bright yellow rubber coats with a hood from my childhood ;-)
    Very stilish, Nicolene!

  3. Brilliant! I live in rainy Vancouver, and am always looking for ways to look decent in the rain. To have such a stylish raincoat that fits into my handbag is a great idea. Lovely blog Nicolene! You have a great sense of style.

  6. Oh, yes to this! Just a smashing I-just-grabbed-these-pieces-on-the-way-out-the-door-oh-thank-you-they-are-fabulous outfit, full of fun but devoid of pretentiousness! My own past relationship with leopard is problematic, but you wear it extremely well, and I'm really in love with this jacket and the pieces you used to show it of. With the stripes, perfect. Add the little skinnies and it's even better and the shoes are just grand. (Just got a similar pair in black and pewter ... now have a copy-cat plan to pair them for their first trip out and about this fall. Thank you ... nice of you to make my life easier!)

  7. Thanks for the compliment, I often use others blogger's style as a guideline, inspiring new outfits and ensembles-and so we become each other's style guides!
