THE PERFECT LJ

 
 
"My friend made me a leather dress... It gives you confidence wearing something you love"
- Cat Deely
 
There is a constant silent debate in the fashion world on what 'style' of leather jackets should be 'in' this season.
The industry provides us with endless amounts of different styles to choose from, and every winter I find
myself in love with whatever leather creation hits the stores. The exciting new styles and shapes of the
basic leather jacket always pull me in, but alas, I never buy a new one. The secret key to a leather jacket that will
remain timeless throughout the years is simplicity. I may be ready to invest in those studded detailed pockets
this season, but by the time next winter rolls around I know I will be asking myself this question: "What
was I thinking?". My one and only leather jacket in my wardrobe was bought a number of years ago
 in the US by my dad (snaps for daddy!). I was quick to knick it off my sister and it's become my best
 friend in winter. It's classic shape, with little detailing, is basic yet timeless and in my opinion,
 the perfect leather jacket.

  10. Totally agree about not having too much details etc or else it won't be so versatile - also won't last as long.
    I've been on the hunt for the perfect leather jacket but I'm yet to find one..

    So cool to see other New Zealand bloggers by the way!!

  11. That is such a lovely leather jacket! I like it with the maxi skirt :)


    I think leather jackets are really classics - not much can make them go out of style within a year. Although my oldest leather jacket is only about 3 years old, haha! So I many know nothing :P

    1. as for persunmall, the dress that I received was great. Firstly at the mail they asked a lot of things to do in order to cooperate but then they just asked me to write a wishlist and nothing else. After the sent me the dress and wanted to post an outfit in 7 days and they sent me several mails because I was late. I don't know if we will work again

  36. I love this look, it's 100% black, but the blackness doesn't make the outfit boring or too dark.

  37. I am always on the lookout for the perfect LJ. I have about 3 faux leather ones but I am still in the never-ending search for THE perfect leather jacket, one that goes perfectly with everything, fits perfectly and still looks amazing with time. This look is gorgeous, love the dress and LJ combo!
