The Black Leather Jacket.

Sometimes I get an item of clothing in my head and cannot stop thinking about it. For example, a while back it was cowboy boots. I now have a great pair of Tony Lamas, but I'm having a bit of difficulty breaking them in.

Before the cowboy boots it was a good leather jacket. I've been struggling with finding just the right one. At first I was going for a brown bomber because I like the aviator vibe and brown leather is always my favorite. I was very strict that it had to be leather. But of course, this wasn't great for my wallet.

So I tried Etsy and Ebay. I did eventually find a leather jacket and buy it, but it was a really wrong shape for me. I sold it on Craiglist (and profited a little!).

I then decided that a more sleek silhouette is better for me. Also, I'm kind of smitten with the rolled sleeve look. I realized that I would need to allow for faux leather ($$), and switch to black because my purse and shoe collections lean very heavily toward brown leather land, and I was getting pretty matchy. Now I'm looking at one very similar to this:

I already have daydreams of wearing it (and being able to justify buying it).

  1. Love love love the top brown bag...LOOOOOOVE.
    And that jacket is fab!

  2. I don't blame you for wanting a leather jacket. They are fun to play around with. I got mine a year ago and love to wear it with floral dresses, like you have pictured in the second collage. I love how you paired it in the other ensembles as well. Kind of makes me want to grab mine out of the closet and put together something fun! :P

    PS. We should hang out next week if you're free!! :P
    PPS. How have you been?!

  3. ahhh, the jacket is making me swoon, and reminding me it's about time i got mine out of the closet!
    (it was an ebay score {$50} and is leather from express when they used to make leather jackets)

    I'm stealing some of these outfits...

    hope you find your jacket soon!

    Chic on the Cheap
