Yessss, Preciousssss!

Well, it’s not quite One Ring to Rule Them All, but look what une femme just won on e-bay

Magnifique, n’est-ce pas?

60’s style vintage? Check!

Leopard print? Check!

Not being outbid in the last 30 seconds? Check!

When I was a little girl in the early 60’s, this was the kind of thing that Really Glamorous Grown Up Ladies™ wore, and I’ve been on the prowl for a vintage leopard print coat for the last several years. But every time I found one in the right size and style, I invariably was outbid in the last few seconds. Watching Mad Men has heightened my covet level for anything from that era, and this little Preciousss should be just the thing for those days when I’m all about Girls Just Wanna Have Fun style.

    Funny — I briefly considered a leopard print zip-up hoodie in a furry fleece today. Quite nicely done and would have been fun, but I left it on the rack. Now I’m doubly glad I didn’t bother — your score is so much more the covetable garment. As a classic clean-lined coat with the not-at-all-conservative leopard print, it is going to look every bit as hot this year as it did 20 years ago and it will rock for another 20! Once again, I’m envious.

    Thanks! I’m just hopeful that it’s in as good shape as presented in the listing. (fingers crossed)
