I have had this motorcycle jacket collecting dust in my closet for most of our life together. I busted it out a few times when I was a stylists assistant at JCrew and you may remember I paired it with a feather skirt HERE. When I bought the bad boy on Ebay three years ago I loved how authentic it was but when it arrived it was also super stiff, not worn in and did I mention it weighs fifty pounds? I bemoaned it's uselessness and considered selling it or becoming a rubber tramp just to break it in.
Flash forward and Motorcycle jackets are everywhere this season. I'm super glad that I didn't get rid of mine. Good to note: Ebay is unparalleled when you are looking for a specific piece. I scored this awesome coat a few years ago which is also "of the moment" now.
Today is the official Halloween but I'm all worn out after a weekend of partying. On Saturday night I dressed up as a border patrol officer. It was a "sexy" costume that I got at Ricky's four years ago. I had a little anxiety about going out in the taboo "sexy" costume but dude, I was feeling lazy and last year I was a very "un-sexy" California raisin so I said f it. Just to be safe I left the stripper heels at home and wore combat boots. What are you dressing up as tonight? Do you like to go girly or nerdy? In the end I don't think it matters. My friend Trilby went as a stuffed pig and I definitely think some people wanted to hit that.
