My Favorite Distressed Leather Jacket
Do you love to travel? I do, and I have been lucky enough throughout my life to be able to see some beautiful and amazing places. I have always loved the adventure of it, the unknown, something different and new. When you are on vacation seeing a new country you want to be impulsive and say “yes” to every experience because it’s part of the fun. Somehow you get an extra energy boost to do more and see more even when you are exhausted. Seeing beautiful sites, learning about local traditions, eating amazing food and of course shopping is all part of the adventure of travel.
I know we all love to shop, but as a fashion designer I also like to check out ALL the stores and see what people are wearing in other countries. It’s very inspirational and I come back refreshed and full of new ideas. I always look for unique pieces to bring back with me, from clothing to other home décor items.
Six years ago we went on a wonderful trip to Rome, Italy and London, England. As you know both of these countries are capitals of fashion and you can’t help but want to go into every store and buy everything. One of my all time favorite jacket finds was during this trip when we were in Rome. Even though its six years old and I have worn it to death, I wanted to share it with you because it’s so unique and timeless and every time I put it on I get compliments. The distressed leather is beautiful to begin with, but the cut and top stitching detail make it even more special. I loved it as soon as I saw it, because it was different and I had never seen anything else like it. The fact that it was in my favorite tan color leather didn’t hurt either.
Going out the other day I wore it with my white jeans and a grey tank top. I love combining tan, white and grey. You can’t really go wrong with this color combo. I added two of my brand new necklaces that have beautiful grey and tan stones in them.
Its been quite warm recently in Los Angeles (like usual) and I feel bad saying this since I know most of you are experiencing brutally cold weather. Honestly I wish it would be a little colder in LA so we could experience somewhat of a winter season.
At night though temperatures tend to drop somewhat, so usually I like to take an extra sweater, shawl or scarf with me. That’s why I decided to add my grey and black leopard scarf. One of the best ways to do this without having to carry it in your hand is to tie it to your bag like I have done here.
