Casual Friday - Python Jacket

My new-to-me leather jacket with stamped python.
Working the rocker chick look (the usual). Jeans, ruffled black shirt, loads of chains, plain black booties, and L's belt that I grabbed at the last minute. To my relief, reactions to the jacket were actually pretty positive. I was a little worried that people would loathe it. As Ruth so accurately put it, "It's hideously fabulous!"

The chestal region and all the chains.
The stuff:
I liked the mess of chains -I felt that really made this look work.

Now, I'm not a brand snob. If this jacket had had no label in it at all, I would still have bought it due to the nice quality and fit (not to mention the price: $24.99). But I love it when it turns out to be a good brand.
Happy weekend!

Jacket (Bebe, thrift), shirt (Oxmo), jeans (Seven7, swap from Caro), boots (Rinaldi), chains (Plum and Jacob), belt (Le Chateau for Men, L's, gift from me), white gold hoop earrings.

  2. I love those chains and the belt buckle is rockin'!! And I completely agree about not being a brand snob, but finding a little extra joy when something you love is also of good quality.

  11. Awesome find on the jacket! I love it and the rocker chic look.
    I try not to be a brand snob either but I do <3 my Ettiene Aigner purse Goodwill ($3!). Not something I'd otherwise own but a nice quality item at a rock-bottom price.

  12. That's exactly how I feel, Leigh-Anna - I wouldn't go out of my way to buy these things new, but put a cheap price tag on it, and I am there! Thanks!
