I stopped by Target on Wednesday morning to pick up a few things and somehow I wandered into the clothes department. Maybe because I saw a 75% off sign and was drawn to it? LOL I hardly if ever go into the clothes section nevertheless, ended up scoring this:
Jacket: William Rast Leather Moto Jacket- size XS (similar here)
Skirt: BB Dakota Groton Tweed Skirt- size 0 (buy here)
Pumps: Ann Taylor Saddle Brown Pumps- size 5 (buy here)
I wasn't looking for a anything leather much less than another jacket. I never ended up keeping my Express moto jacket, so technically I still am looking. I was rummaging through the 75% rack like a crazy Asian girl looking for any small sizes when I touched this incredibly, soft, buttery, jacket! I was thinking, is this real leather? I have never felt such soft leather before- EVER!!! It was so soft, I just wanted to wrap myself in it and roll around in it!! LOL This is my 3rd attempt at finding a nice leather moto jacket:(
SIZE/FIT: It was a lonely XS hanging on the rack so I quickly tried it on and tweeted about it. The sleeves are way too long but if I love it enough, it will be worth getting fixed. The shoulders which have that patching, (I'm not loving the patchwork) is a bit square and weird. But the overall width when unzipped and zipped up, fits really nicely.
COLOR: Medium brown/saddle brown leather. I actually really like the color! I would typically wear this on the weekends which is nice because all my casual clothes are a neutral palette. It's a really rich color and not a gross 'poopy' brown.
MATERIAL: 100% genuine LAMBSKIN leather! Wow- I can't even rave enough about how soft this leather is. Seriously, it's so plush and supple- amazing!!!! Softest butter leather I have ever felt. I love it!
$199 but on sale for $49.99. I know- can you believe it? For genuine leather!!!!
DISLIKES: The shoulders are the only thing I don't like. I don't like the stitching/patch design. It's a big hard core for me but can I deal with it? Maybe...And obviously the sleeves which are super long and will cost a good chunk of change to tailor. But may be worth it since the price was only $50 for real leather!
VERDICT: Keeping. It's the best fitting real leather moto jacket I have found and the softness of the leather alone is worth it to me.
This is totally random but thought I would share. I tweeted about how hubby sent me a picture of this:
It is a beautiful 100% silk Salvatore Ferragamo Italian scarf! (similar here)
I love the colors and it's even more gorgeous in person! Hubby is so thoughtful:)
What are your thoughts on my William Rast leather moto jacket?
