thrift style thursday – leather love

Another thrift style Thursday is upon us! I actually love leather goods (I’m not a vegetarian or vegan and I eat lots of meat, so I’m ok with animal leather but I’m also OK with faux leather).

I’ve been looking for an edgy leather jacket for a while now. I don’t want to pay retail price for it but at the same time, what I’ve found at thrift stores have been quite outdated. When I found this little red leather jacket (well ok, it’s not ALL leather), I had to have it! Even though it’s definitely not my size, I squeeze into it anyway!

  1. Firstly, wow very pretty!!! The red is a great pop of colour!! Lastly, I want that last cat picture, I can think of a list of captures that would describe what ulysses the kitty might be thinking!!

  2. Ong that leather jacket is just so cool! I love the color and I actually think the fit is great the way it nips in at the waist!! I love the look of leather jackets but haven’t really been able to find one for myself that I really like… oh well, cute kitty!!! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Kristi! The tag says size small (6-8) which is totally not my size so even though I can get it on, it doesn’t really zip up. oh well. I’m looking for a grey or black leather jacket but haven’t found anything while thrifting that doesn’t scream 80s. xo

    1. Totally agree. I hardly ever buy non-leather shoes because I find them to be stiff and they don’t breathe. I have much better luck with leather lasting too. Like my old doc martens, the had some seams come apart and I was able to have them fixed at the shoe repair shop. I doubt you could do the same with faux leather shoes.

  3. BAM! Love that pop of red πŸ™‚ And you’re so good at pattern mixing with the flats and the skirt…I have to try more of that!
