a few weeks ago i won a modcloth gift certificate from kate's generous blog anniversary giveaway over on scathingly brilliant. this is the first blog giveaway i've ever won and i was super excited to win. when i entered the contest i had been eyeing the squalling storm dress - but when i flipped through the sales pages and saw that the perfect leopard print autograph signing coat was on sale AND in my price range i knew that's what i'd just have to go for. i'd been watching it for months, so it was just as if it was meant to be. the first one i ordered was a bit too big (uk sizing is always tricky for me - even when i go by the size charts i always order too large), so i had to return for a size down - luckily i snatched one just before they went out of stock on the site! and i love it - thanks, kate!
