Last year, around this time, I purchased a leopard faux fur coat from the now non-existent Piperlime.com. They were a sister online store to Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, etc. Without going into much detail, and much to the dismay of many a fashionista, Piperlime shut down its servers some time last year leaving many to wander the internet in search for items they once carried. Among them, the leoapard coat above.
I know what you’re thinking: She wore a leopard faux-fur coat to the office?! Why, yes. Yes, I did. And you know why?? Because you only live once. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. So one might as well live fully! As an academic, one also often spends a great deal of time focused on work–advancing science– and little time focused on having fun or going out. But, one can insert a little bit of fun into each day in different ways. Mine just so happens to be via fashion. My days are jam-packed with meetings, writing, and/or science in general. When my work day is done, I move on to my kiddies and hubby. Some days, it’s go-go-go until I pass out at bedtime (or maybe even after what is supposed to be bedtime). But, having worn a fun outfit, or perhaps added a little sparkle to my eyeshadow, makes the day feel a little more special; even on days when the tasks are endless and there was little time for fun.
So, where can YOU find a fabulous faux-fur coat to wear to YOUR office you ask?? 😉 I found a couple of options you might like that are similar to the coat I have. Some are even cheaper than the one I bought. Score! So enjoy! And remember:
Enjoy yourself. It’s later than you think.
