I Get It!

June leather jacket, size xs :: Banana Republic silk camp shirt, size 00P :: Paige Laurel Canyon jeans, size 24 (altered) :: Ann Taylor belt :: J.Crew necklace :: Daisy Knights ring :: Via Spiga booties

Okay…so I get it now. I never really understood the appeal of leather jackets until recently. Probably because I never found one in my size before. And maybe I’m still a little scarred from a weird co-worker that used to wear an icky over-sized, boxy black leather jacket to work every day.

But now I see the light! In the right shape and silhouette, leather (and faux) is fun, edgy and modern. It’s also surprisingly warm on these chilly fall days.

I’m also doing something completely out of character for me…I’m forgoing alterations and leaving the sleeves long! I know! Crazy right? (I live on the edge, obvi) I like how folding the sleeves up adds a casual touch. At least, for now.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    Lol!! I can understand your aversion to leather jackets!!

    So glad you are getting so much use out of this.  I just ordered my first suede jacket today from Free People (from $298 to $69!) I hope it works!  I am still on the hunt for the shiny leather, though! :)
