|“My Stuff: Lou Doillon,” Vanity Fair, August 2013.|
Going through old magazines I came across the feature “My Things” with Lou Doillon in a Vanity Fair from August 2013. Lou is the daughter of actress Jane Birkin and she certainly has that Jane Birkin/1970s/Bohemian look down pat, right? I love her sooty eyes, heavy bangs, dark nails and leopard jacket in this photo. I also really like the length of the jacket she is wearing. It seems lightweight and perfect for fall when temperatures are starting to cool.

I must’ve been influenced by Lou in her leopard because I could not resist picking up this jacket by Laundry by Shelli Segal during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which I normally have no problem resisting. I like the fabric and the trim but I think this has to go back because it is much heavier than the lightweight long jacket I had in mind—to be fair it is called the “Ribbon Trim Tweed Coat” but I was hoping it would be a super thin one!—and it is also much more formal looking than the jacket I had in mind.

I do like this length of a jacket, especially since it seems most fall jackets hit at the hip or just below, so my search continues.
Let me know what you think of Lou’s look or longer jackets for fall. If you have any shopping or brand recommendations, please pass them along!
