So lets just address the elephant in the room right now. Yes, I’m sitting on a fridge in the third photo. I was strapped for photo locations that day, OK?
So here we have Wardrobe Staples Pt II, the Leather Edition. Most of the people i know will be well aware of my obsession for leather jackets! You, however, may not. I love leather jackets, always have, always will. It’s my mission in life to keep every single leather jacket I’ll ever own; to be passed on through generations like prized family jewels. Some kids will get a fortune, mine will get tatty leather. I made this resolution after I lost my first leather jacket to severe over-wearing. Seriously, it was hanging to pieces, pockets ripped, zips broken…. I loved her too much. But it finally became time to let her go when I was in London a few years ago. It seemed like a nice place to let her go with a little bit of herself still intact!
The jacket I’m wearing here, is very, very similar to the first one i ever owned. It’s from TopShop and has little puncture holes up and down the sleeves, swede shoulders and sits just above your hips! It’s my go-to jacket for everything, going out, nipping out for milk, heading to town…weddings?! Yes, I wore it to a wedding. But that’s the thing with leather, it’s so friggin’ versatile.
I reckon everyone should own at least one leather in their lifetime. They’re so iconic, and timeless. Which is exactly why I’m planning on keeping mine forever.
I do own another leather, from Whistles. And boy OH BOY is she a special thing. Sheep skin lined, zips, buckles, everything you could want in the leather, and Holy crap is she soft!! The next one I plan to own is from All Saints, I love their leather jackets sooooo much. They’re just so darn expensive. Maybe one day when I’ve saved enough I could add another buttery dream to the collection. Dub it an ‘Investment’ and everyone can move on. It’s for my kids for Gods Sake!!!
Thanks for reading.
