The mind works in mysterious ways, because earlier this week I was complaining that I couldn't find a nice leather jacket that was within my strict price range (I was hunting for a bargain, to be completely honest. And I was probably kidding myself). But I guess love at first sight is priceless, because when I spotted this Shakuhachi quilted biker jacket style on Green with Envy's online store, my budget suddenly increased without hesitation...luckily it was on sale! (Such magic words, aren't they?)
I never thought I would say this, but I just cannot wait to go to work on Monday! I think I might even hug the courier...
Although most of these photos show the burgundy colour, and I am obsessed with burgundy (though I'm sure you couldn't possibly know that...), I actually decided to go with the black, as I tend to wear a lot of colour anyway, and I simply wanted to have a classic black leather jacket to throw on over anything and everything.
The style is more classic than the Nicholas two-toned Chelsea Biker Jacket, but more detailed and edgy than your average black leather biker. A great feature is the semi-cropped length, which will complement my array of high waisted skirts, shorts and jeans, and also suit my small height!
We are going to be very, very happy together.
