When my previously well-loved leather jacket finally bit the dust a few months ago, I immediately started the hunt for a replacement. But leather jacket hunting requires time. It’s like finding the perfect bikini. You can’t usually just go out, bright eyed and bushy tailed and expect to come home with a winner after a few stops at the mall. You have to wait for your winner to come to you!
Well. Just last week I was browsing the mall, waiting for an appointment (no real goal in mind here) and BAM! It came to me. At Zara, no less! I should have known Zara would nail this sort of thing.
Flattering length, detailed stitching, and extra-real looking vegan leather. So real in fact that I took it in the dressing room with a real leather counterpart, and didn’t realize that one of them was fake until I looked at the price tags!
I paired it with a tissue-thin tank, edgy sunnies and a boatload of pearls, just to add a bit of femininity back in. Oh and sneaks, of course! It made for the perfect outfit for our breezy day of sightseeing in La Jolla.
This purse is inexpensive and it comes in a million colors! Perfect for taking on a day when you know you won’t want to worry about a bit of dirt and dust here or there. Or any day, really. ;)
C’mon admit it… you love a good leather jacket every once in a while. :)
