My Old Faithful – The Leather Jacket
I thought I would start a series on my take of what is a wardrobe essential to me. First to kick things off is the old faithful- The Leather Jacket.
To me the Leather Jacket can be something of a icon statement piece or just blend into the background of a fierce outfit. No matter how rubbish you may be feeling that day, slipping on a Leather Jacket and a statement lipstick, you are then ready to take on the world so to speak!. My chosen Leather Jacket is the Bales piece from All Saints. I thought long and hard about this purchase, as for me its a lot of money to spend on myself with so many mouths to feed! If you have been reading my blog for a while you will know that the last Leather Jacket I bought was over 18 years and was woefully in need of an up grade so I felt it was justified!.
I chose this style because all the others seemed a little bulky on my small frame and I did look like a mitchelin man wearing them!. The Bales is a soft Lamb Leather (sorry!) I know for some this does not sit well, but for me if I am going to eat it, I should not be fussy about wearing it. It is slim line and has a double buckle on the collar. It has zip details on the cuffs which really helps when you are wearing a thick hoody or knit underneath to allow some well needed ventilation!.
Don’t get me wrong, you can get some cracking faux Leather Jackets on the high street for a fraction of the price. Also for what I paid for one Jacket you could buy at least 3 good quality copies. For me, I am into this whole minimal, less in the Wardrobe, investing in quality pieces malarkey! So each to their own, but if you do decide to take the plunge, there is no better time than now, as All Saints are holding a Instagram Biker Portraits Campaign where if you upload your photo wearing one of their Biker Jackets,then you could be chosen as the face of their new campaign. WIN,WIN!!
