all for a leather jacket, we were so indecisive..

11oct4 11oct3 11oct2 11oct1 this is one of the amazing finds from the vintage fair - a green leather coat.. no, i've never been a grand fan of leather jackets, i don't think i have ever really had the desire for one, but when we visited the vintage fair last weekend at aintree racecourse, it was something which metaphorically jumped off the rail at me..(as opposed to when i got it off the rail, and one of it's neighbouring dresses physically jumped out at me).. i need to take some better photos of it - these were by iphone as my camera battery was dead and i was dead on my feet and didnt' want to wait for it to charge before i could change into my pjs! - but you get the general idea.. what do you think of leather - the perfect autumn / winter wardrobe staple, or something which should be saved for your motorcycle? dress: handmade by me // shoes: irregular choice // gold cardigan: primark // leather coat: judys' affordable vintage fair

  1. I am a sucker for leather - hard wearing and looks better with age. But I'm always surprised how it never seems to keep me warm! It'll keep the wind out, but if I get cold, I'll stay cold; so good for this time of year I think, but not the depths of winter.
