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.
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.

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.
