My Favorite Fall Coats and What I Found at TJ Maxx

I pinned this stunning image a few years ago. I loved it then and, because all of the elements are so classic, I love it now.

Suffice to say I’ve been coveting a leopard coat for awhile now. They truly are a classic fashion element.

Not only do leopard coats pair well with red they look fabulous with chambray and Kelly green…

…As well as purple and fuchsia.

Really there isn’t a bright color that doesn’t work. Basically leopard is just an amazing neutral.

Of course when you are looking for something you can never find it. Am I right? So I began looking at other coats to capture my fancy. Many of you know of my love of the Royal family. They often wear Moloh coats. 

Remember Joey’s Thanksgiving Pants? The Sunday coat could definitely be my Thanksgiving coat. #bringonthemeatsweats

Sunday Coat:

It’s no secret I love me some plaid. This wool plaid with velvet trim Isla coat makes me want to volunteer for Christmas caroling even though I can’t carry a tune in a bucket.

Isla Coat:

For all my Sgt. Pepper and Black Watch dreams I bring you the Victory Tailcoat.

It’s like an Outlander fantasy come to life.

Of course I would have to sell an arm and 1/2 of one leg to afford one of these coats.

The fashion fairies must have taken pity on me. When I went to go look for a school backpack at TJ Maxx I spied, from far across the room, one lone leopard coat. It was my size and at $39 it was definitely my price.

Oh my word, I love it. I only have my little leopard shoes, a coat would be way too much fun. This is a great find.

Love your new leopard coat! I'm partial to the tartan too.

Big Texas Hugs,

I love leopard, have a pair of shoes, but no coat! Thanks for the info Laura!

Judy Ann Lincicum said...

Wow, at that price you could afford the tartan, another Christmas plaid, and on and on! Must be a blessing, dear Laura!

Sarah said...

Only leopard shoes and one blouse in my wardrobe, but that coat would have caught my attention too. Great find, Laura! Now let's hope Mother Nature sends us some cooler weather. Happy Autumn!

What a great find! I love T.J. Maxx so much--you truly never know what you're going to find. Now if we can just get it to cool down here, right!?

Bonjour chère amie,

Très jolis manteaux...
J'ai deux jupes avec des écossais similaires...

Gros bisous ❀

Oh! I am glad you found one!

Love the leopard, esp the mid-calf length. Congrats on your TJ's find. What would we do without the TJX stores?

Two years ago I found a leopard jacket, brand new from Talbots - pockets still stitched - at Goodwill for $5! I always wear a big gold and pearl brooch on mine - remember, if it's good enough for QEII it's good enough for us.

The plaid tailcoat, however, is the wittiest and most adorable thing ever!

It was meant to be!

Linda said...

That's going to look so cute on you, Laura!! :)

Christine said...

I think I've said this before, Plaid is my FAVORITE color!
But then again, Leopard is close behind.

I have the leopard pumps and flats, but that coat is adorable and I love how it's paired with denim and pearls!

Jackie's coat was probably real leopard and would be looked down upon now, but the faux leopard is so fun. I absolutely love it with denim and who doesn't love a red purse!
