A leather motorcycle jacket is something I’ve been coveting for years. Unfortunately I’m rather picky and have expensive taste so until recently, I’ve been leather-jacket-less. A few weeks ago, while shopping in NYC, I stumbled upon this faux leather jacket in the Buffalo Exchange in the East Village and knew it was perfect (for now). It’s the right shape, classic style and the sleeves are even long enough! The removable hood adds an edgy vibe and helps it look like I’ve layered it- perfect for a grunge look. Yes, I loathe that its faux leather but it only cost $15 and is really just serving as a placeholder until I have enough money for the real deal. I styled it with the only solid pair of converse I have and added the red lip half way through the day. By mid-afternoon I almost had a meltdown in the car because I realized I should have worn a white shirt instead a grey one, and ditched the grey arrow earrings. Instead I ended up with preppy grunge meets edgy grunge… hopefully I’ll have a more clear direction next time!
