Don't mistaken my love of shopping for a weakness, it is a much deeper and scarier love than that. You know that weak-in-the-knee, can't stop blushing and gushing feeling you get immediately after the first kiss with that special someone? Imagine that, but BETTER, and that's how I feel when I see a piece that I know my closet would love to be in company with. This is the story of how my new half faux leather, half canvas jacket and I met and we have been inseparable ever since. I fell in love with the subtle details, its inverted likeliness to the coveted Zara jacket and its even closer resemblance to the jaw-dropping, wallet-draining Alexander Wang jacket. Perfect to dress up or down all year round, I can't wait to make this jacket my new go-to.

I love your jacket! I actually prefer yours to the Zara jacket, because I like the canvas sleeves versus Zara's leather sleeves! It's a great edge to your floral print dress.

I've been looking for a leather vest/denim sleeve jacket ahhh!! Sho cute, perfect amount of edginess without being too much like an all leather jacket.

Love the outfit. The thrifted necklace is such a great find! I'm crazy about thrift stores but the ones near my house don't carry a lot of jewelry and what they do carry looks like somebody ran over it. So I'm impressed you found something so nice that goes so well with the rest of the pieces! Really like it!
