I was hoping to show you how I painted my Vans with glitter today but I haven’t managed to sort out photos yet. Damn, this week is flying by ! Meanwhile, I had these photos in stock and thought it might be a nice idea to talk about BIKER JACKETS. Cause, you know they’re highly fashionable in the upcoming season, right ?! Oh yes, leather skirts, thick leather boots, beautiful bags and of course good old biker jackets.
Biker jackets can be worn in so many ways, I literally tend to pull mine on over anything. Another advantage is they keep you nice and warm – I sometimes go out in mine in the middle of Winter with a thick wool scarf and honestly they’re cosy ! Here, I wore my newest leather jacket over a Jack Wills dotty playsuit along with glitter high heels and colourful earrings. Such a fun outfit ! I think the leather jacket pulled the look together and avoided me looking too clowny with my mulitple colours, patterns and materials. Glitter, leather and silk ?! Yes, please !
I started telling you about the most amazing buy this jacket was in my article about Stoke Newington. I literally came across a random sale on the side of the road, a couple selling clothes and other bits as if they’d come out of nowhere. It’s very easy to walk past this kind of step-up, but I was subconsciously on the look out for a bargain biker jacket and the Sparkle & Fade label grabbed my attention right away. I always love their stuff in Urban Outfitters so this jacket selling for £35 instead of £250 was like a dream come true ! Quality wise, the jacket looks as if it has never been worn and I love the sound the belt makes as I walk – jingle, jingle, like a proper rebel !
Before I go, and because I have been wanting to share bargains on here so that you can boost your wardrobe for less, too, I thought I’d share a few exciting deals I have found online recently. I’m not saying the prices are as low as the one I paid – I think that was a lucky one-shot – but if you are looking to purchase a biker jacket this Autumn, you might like to save a few pennies !
