When I received my Vogue September issue, the fabulous face of Linda Evangelista jumped off the pages wearing leopard print in an ad campaign for...wait for it...Talbots. The ads are evidence of what a great model and photographer can do. As soon as I laid eyes on Linda working their leopard sheath dress and pea coat, I was hooked. Seriously, this woman is a goddess! Suddenly, I forgot everything that I knew about Talbots--the only certainty was that I needed one of their tailored leopard pieces in my life. I began stalking their website, waiting for them to stock the covetable leopard dress, jacket, and skirt. Unfortunately, as soon as the items surfaced, they sold out in most sizes. During my online search, I was hit with another surprise--there was a cape I wanted, and a bag, and hat...could it be that Talbots sells chic clothes now? Or am I just settling into the style of a conservative middle-aged mom? I am going to go with the former.
So now I have a Talbots wish list. You'll understand when you see these beauties.
As for my leopard print conquest, I scored this skirt (one of two left!) from my local Talbots store and I could not be more pleased.
