City Slicker

October 19, 2018

I love leather – real or faux, smooth or textured, shiny or matte I don’t discriminate.  Fortunately, it’s finally starting to get cold enough to wear a full leather look in California.  I decided it was time I break in one of my favorite leather jacket purchases from earlier this year – this beautiful Alexander Wang number.

Alexander Wang can do no wrong.  His laid back, “model off-duty” aesthetic and edgy interpretations of casual wear really speaks to me.  And, this jacket is the definition of perfection.  It has the western vibes from the fringe detailing on the back without looking too cowgirl – less rodeo Cowboy and more Rodeo Drive 😂

I love the cropped length and the intricate piercings, hardware details, and scalloped chain hem.  It makes the jacket so special!  I styled it with the comfiest faux leather leggings from Aritzia and leather Saint Laurent leather booties for a leather on leather look.  My bag of choice was a goat hair nightingale from Givenchy.  I thought it added a fun and furry touch to the edgier look.

This bag always makes me smile whenever I see it.  My hair was all black before I got highlights and I remember one of my friends said to me “oh my gosh Jaime this bag looks like your hair!” 😆  She wasn’t wrong…It really kinda does! haha

I was wearing:

Jacket: Alexander Wang

Turtleneck: Gucci (similar)

Leggings: Aritzia (similar)

Boots: Saint Laurent

Bag: Givenchy

 

Red Leather Jacket

August 25, 2018

It’s safe to say everyone has at least one leather jacket in their closet, right?  And chances are its black.  A leather jacket is like a white t-shirt, a closet staple.  It can be dressed up or down and worn with basically anything and everything.  Everyone can wear them…you don’t have to be riding a bike or listening to rock music. 😉  And because the leather topper is so versatile, it is also such a great investment piece.  Iro makes my favorite leather jackets out of all the ones I’ve ever tried on.  The fit and style of Iro jackets are so flattering and they fall perfectly at hip length.

Eyelet Moto

January 20, 2017

The sporadic weather in Northern California has made it extremely hard to dress appropriately lately…one minute its beautiful and sunning and the next thing you know its pouring rain and thundering!  Fortunately, the day I wore this eyelet moto jacket it was sunny and gorgeous–and it stayed that way!  He is known for these edgy yet feminine moto jackets by adding his signature eyelet details!  I bought this Yigal Azrouel jacket a few seasons ago and never got the chance to wear it! I wore it with my new Givenchy antigona clutch that has these little silver studs and one of my favorite Isabel Marant boots!  I am absolutely in love with this jacket and can’t wait to get more wear out of it in the spring/summer!
