Right, I can't keep my inner Bet Lynch in any longer...has anyone seen a nice leopard print coat anywhere, not fake fur but like a mac? Or failing that a nice cardigan that doesn't look cheap? Humour me.

Nice cardi at Mango, £35, v delicate fabric.

I haven't seen any coats this year. I asked sthg similar last winter and the opinion was a big NO. I might have been a step ahead, though

I've been wearing leopard (& zebra/giraffe etc) prints for years. I adore them and am so glad they've been in fashion recently and I've been able to replenish my stock. The New Look macs look nice IMO & aren't too dear so it isn't a major investment if you then go off it next year. I have a zebra print kind of shawl/wrap thing a friend made for a play & I pilfered. I love wearing it & sometimes go to a bar down the road that has a zebra sofa I sit on & indulge my animal print obsession.go for it!

karen millen has this pink/black cardi here I am strangely attracted to it.

Oooh thank you for this, I'll have a good shufty on the internet now and unleash Bet!

There's a very nice leopard print cardi on the Oasis website for £45 by the way...

I have the Oasis cardi and it is lovely. Wore it yesterday with a brown mini polo neck dress & brown over the knee boots.

Let us know how you get on OP.

Marks have done them before (I have one and love it) Worth checking evry once in a while

Currently trying to justify this one...

I have that Oasis cardi! it's v flattering and not too much of an in-your-face/cheap looking print.

The KM one looks lovely on the website. I find KM clothes a bit heavy (weight-wise) IRL, i wonder if this is too?

Ouchhhh - I'd ordered that Boden trenchcoat but sent it back in the end. The fabric (just ordinary heavy cotton) didn't quite suit it, it was a bit plain for the pattern. The pink belt was at odds too.

Ah good, that means I don't have to buy it! smile

I have found that with other Boden coats too; and sometimes the fabric says glam but the cut says Emily Bishop....

I got the New Look coat - it's £28 and surprisingly nice.

I got a coat cheap from ebay, in case I didn´t wear it as much as I thought.

Hi, my name is Bleh and I am also a closet animal print lover.

If I could afford it, I would love this bag. I got a FAB leopard print scarf from H&M and £6, but don't know if I'm brave enough to go all out and get a coat.

Oooh, I also love this!
