My best friend Britney and I went out today for national giftcard day. I call it that because there are so many sales today to encourage people to use the gift cards they got for Christmas. Thrifting was a bust, but i did get a studded vintage shirt, a few bracelets and a couple bows from some local recycled clothing stores. While I was out I wore my leather bomber jacket from Jessica London. I added my vintage brooches to the jacket to make it a little more me and paired it with the fur leopard print earmuffs and mittens my mom got me for christmas. I kept the rest of my outfit simple to make trying on clothes easier.
I love nearly everything about this jacket. It's 100% leather and much warmer than I thought it would be. It certainly has been holding up to the Chicago winter well in the month or two I've had it. There haven't been any frayed seams or rips. I sized up and got a 28 because I read that this jacket was a little tight across the back and I wanted enough room to fit a hoodie or sweater underneath. Sizing up definitely solved the minor fit issue. I will say I wish the sleeves were a bit longer; I like my sleeves to end where my hands begin. I solved that problem by adding a hoodie underneath for extra warmth and sleeve length. Over all this jacket is a win; I wear it everyday.
How are you keeping warm this winter? Did you do any after Christmas shopping?
