This was an outfit from last weekend when it got a cold 33 degrees again. This teetering of cold to warm weather is probably the most challenging time to dress and not feel schlumpy. Speaking of schlumpy, I wish I didn't hate ironing, but I do. I have a handy steamer to dewrinkle as many of my button up shirts as possible, still I admit that I don't use it as often as I should. When I see crisp tops on women it makes me a teensy bit jealous at how much more put together they look compared to my schlumpy wrinkled number. If only I could be more bothered by it to actually iron. So I buy more forgiving fabrics as much as possible (like jersey, I love jersey!).
Last last week I finally gave in to my biggest purchase as of late --- a black leather jacket. I've been wanting one since feasting my eyes on a Rick Owens one and after much sleuthing came upon the Rezrekshn leather zip-up jacket from Victoria's Secret. This is my first purchase from VS online and I really debated for over four months whether or not to get it. Finally I succumbed and took the plunge when it went on sale from $218 to $199. After using a 30% discount code I got it for $197. I LOVE it. At first I thought that I'd like it to be a little bit tighter around the arms, but the more I wear it the more I love exactly how it fits on me (I am wearing an XS). It looks good both zipped up and down contrary to some reviews I had read that complained it looked weird down. But it looks great and truly a worthy investment since Rick Owens is still way outside my price range. I'll post pictures soon.
