Put A Little Faux Feline On It: Anthropologie’s Leopard Collar Melton Jacket Review

Smiling and Sunny in Los Angeles
Leopard Melton Jacket

Marcy (outraged):  Are you wearing a cat on your coat, Cindy?

Cynthia:  It’s faux fur, Marcy.

Marcy:  A leopard IS my foe, but he’s still a cat. How could you!

Cynthia:  Faux fur means it’s polyester.

Marcy:  You killed Paul and Esther? My leopard foe friends from the zoo for your coat?

Cynthia:  No. Marcy! Calm down. It’s fake fur. Synthetic. Man Made. Okay… I’ll just… take it off.

Collar Removed

Marcy (relieved):  That’s much better.

Cynthia:  Good. Onto my review. Finally.

Leopard Collar Melton Jacket by Elevenses for Anthropologie.

Pros:  It’s swingy. It’s A-line. It has bell shaped bracelet sleeves with a bright red lining peeking out. Fun. Fun. Fun. It’s lightweight – perfect for Los Angeles winters.

Swing Out Sister

Cons:  It’s lightweight. Not perfect for 35 degree weather in Pittsburgh.

Marcy:  Scary. You’re clenching your teeth so hard it looks like you’re going to break your face.

Cynthia:  IT. WAS. SO. COLD! There is no looking cute in cold weather for me. I have no clue how bloggers in cold weather pose so prettily. It is completely beyond my comprehension.

Marcy:  Obviously.

    That is a gorgeous jacket! I love it on you! It is classy and has a touch of fun! Pittsburg 35 degrees? It's 64 degrees in my house right now and I am FREEZING! Oh my gosh! That is so cold! You should have had frozen California tears on your face! We can't do that weather!

    I would be careful with that coat. Marcy might shred it!

      LOL! It was too cold to cry even!!! I did take some pics with Marcy while I was wearing the coat but they didn't turn out well since I was so paranoid about her shredding it with her claws. Thank you, Jenni!!

    Marcy, you could become a living, breathing, purring fur collar. Just curl yourself around Cynthia's neck with your head and front legs over her right shoulder, tail and back legs over her left shoulder. You could travel everywhere together.

      Chills just went up my spine as I read this. I think my neck would end up a bloody mess. However, if I could make sure to clip her nails a lot it might be super cute!

    What a fun coat! I love swingy coats, especially with shorter sleeves. Great look on you!

      Thank you, Lisa!!! I love the red peeking out of those shorter sleeves. If one must wear a coat it is definitely best to have a fun and swingy one. Unless of coarse it is 35 degrees. lol
