They usually spend winter buried in my wardrobe, or in the best case were used a few times, under a coat, during the coldest days. But I missed them and was happy to have them back!
I love this really short period when wearing a leather jacket is enough, and of course I would like to have one in each possible colour. It's a long time project and every year, I buy one that I really like, during sales or on eBay. As a result, I am now starting to have a nice collection of leather jackets: one blue, one grey and two black.
Last year I failed though. I wanted to buy a brown suede Iro jacket but during the sales, there was nothing left in my size. I was even more disappointed as it was THE colour missing in my collection.
And when I bought my studded bag recently, I noticed a jacket quite similar which was being sold on the same website. Same colour, similar cut, it is not THE Iro jacket, but I still find it very nice:
It has one flaw though: a star on the shoulder that I would like to hide with a patch. But apart from this, it is perfect, isn't it?
My headband also has a story! Cynthia Guerrero, designer for Stella Pardo, gave it to me. It is actually two bracelets in braided alapaca attached together by a button. I thought it was a bit to warm to be worn at the arm right now, but on my head it's ok!
