I have been dying to wear this shirt since I bought it:
Outfit number 7! I had fun with the plaid tights - they have just a touch of red on them. The Cydwoq shoes make another appearance, and this is the first wear of the silvery-grey velvet skirt (last seen here), the red sweater (here) and this absolutely amazing black leather shirt.
Most leather jackets you see in thrift stores are straight out of the 80s: big round shoulders, cropped waist, puffy sleeves (I tried on a red jacket like that, much to my and Lorinda's amusement). This shirt has to have been made within the last 2-10 years at the very most.
When I put this jacket on, I knew:
Okay some details. The entire shirt (and it is a shirt, not a jacket - only the sleeves are lined) is slashed.
The front has slashes all along the hem, on the waist seams and at the tops of the shoulders.
The back is slashed across the shoulders, across the shoulder blades and at the waist.
The sleeves are slashed three times around the cuffs:
I would have bought this at nearly any price point:
Anyway, I'm in love with this shirt, and it's going to get a lot of wear in February!
Shirt (Danier Leather, thrifted), sweater (Reitman's, thrifted), skirt (Club Monaco), shoes (Cydwoq), necklace (gift from Tina).
In case you've wondered where Vizzini's gotten to in the mornings when I do my pictures, he's decided to leave me alone after he has his morning meal and have a snooze on the scratching post.
