I've been looking for a leather jacket for a long time! I loved this girl in hers and this girl in hers. The only problem is that every leather jacket I looked at in the past year was at least $500! Insane. So when I found the perfect gray leather jacket at the Gap for substantially cheaper (but still a little insane), I immediately bought it without a thought. Ok, I admit that I had to go to like five different Gap stores before finding it in my size because it was sold out everywhere. But I finally got my hands on one and tried not to think about it too hard when I handed over my credit card. I had to wait weeks before I could wear it because the weather's been so nice, and then I finally got my chance last weekend. But when I tried it on with different outfits, I suddenly wasn't so sure of myself. Was it me? A leather jacket just seems like something a cool girl would wear, and I'm not so sure I'm very cool. I felt like maybe I was trying too hard. And then I realized perhaps I was over thinking it (like everything else in my life!) and that I should just go with it and try it. So I wore it out last Friday night. And I was stopped by TWO different strangers on the street who complimented me. Score! Yep, I'm keeping it. Fo sho.
Other cheap-ish leather jackets can be found here: Gap, Forever 21, and Urban Outfitters (but I try to avoid Urban because their garments are so overpriced considering the poor quality).
