Marianne: Eye of the Tiger...Leopard

Over the holiday break I impulse-bought this top off of GroopDealz (that's my affiliate link) and immediately was sure I would regret it. There was NO WAY some flimsy $15 blouse was going to fit me, y'all. But it was covered in tiger heads! And I have been long coveting a tiger printed blouse (for real). No one was more surprised than me that it fit (though it is a tad tight in the upper arms, tbh), and it's pretty cute to boot. Behold:
The skirt is a super old one from the Gap, but if you want something similar this wool skirt with a paper bag waist would do the trick. It's a nice cut if you have a little extra weight in your stomach. I paired it with some chunky bracelets, Spanx tights, and some Chie Mihara shoes that I finally copied Adrien and bought off of eBay. These are a similar concept.

TIGER HEADS. I love it, y'all. Oh, and the crystal bracelet is from GroopDealz too. Oh, and that's my favorite red lipstick, y'all.
On to MY COAT, which is the best coat ever in all the lands. I have had a vintage-inspired leopard coat on my wishlist for three years now, but I could never find the right one (that I could afford, that is. I mean, come on.). So when I spotted this grey Leopard Trapeze Coat at anthropologie, I swooned. I love the flattering swingy cut, I love that it's grey, and the bracelet length sleeves are perfection. Even better, I got it the day after Christmas for under $100. It's sold out now (actually there are still one or two in stock?) but this grey leopard coat for $50 is nice, oh and this one is under $30!
Did you score any great deals after Christmas? I have worn this coat almost every single day since buying it. True love.


  1. Your hair is perfect in these pictures! Are you doing something new?

    1. Oh thank you! I'm doing the same Ouidad routine, but you know how when you desperately need a haircut your hair will turn really good for a few days, to lull you into thinking you maybe don't need to get it cut? That. Today I look like an alpaca.

    2. My hair does the same thing, a good couple of days, then bam, it's a bun day.

  2. Beautiful coat and blouse! All in all outfit win!
