The Jacket

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Jacket: vintage, Tee: UO, Leggings: UO, Beanie: H&M, Boots: Payless (lace-up)

Here is the debut of my new leather jacket.
I see so many possibilities for it and I've been wearing it non-stop for the past few days. It's really a relief for me that it fits because the last leather jacket I ordered on Ebay ended up being a bit tight in the shoulder.

I'll have to try wearing it with ripped stockings and plaid like Alice:
(minus the crop top because no one needs to see that lol)


Or with a long black dress/skirt like MK:
(I've really been wanting to try out the maxi length even though I know it's not practical in this rainy weather. I actually have a long brown DKNY skirt, but I'd rather try out a black one first.)


I'd also love to pair it with some leopard or lace a la Desperately Seeking Susan
(Just re-watched that movie and I recommend you do the same!)

oh i miss my biker jacket. i wore it last spring and summer and fall nonstop. i may bring it whit me to london and use some layers..then it may work, i think these jackets are the best. rock chic and you look damn cool!

emma said...

love the jacket. i tried the whole maxi skirt + boots but with a leather vest instead. looking forward to see how you style it :)

TINE said...

It looks awesome on you! I love the fit, not too tight, not too loose. Don't you hate those jackets where they're tight in the shoulders and you can't raise your arms?

Jenny Cindy said...

The jacket looks perfect on you.
It is such a gorgeous find..really.
There's endless possibilities for a cool biker jacket like that. I'm espeically excited to see you try out the maxi skirt outfit.
