My new 'perfect' black leather jacket!!

I found one, I found one-haha!! You all know I wasn't over impressed with the last black leather jacket I bought-it was only £3, but I still wasn't overkeen. Anyway, that jacket, 2 other jackets and a blouse and skirt were passed to my sister in law who has daughters so I don't know who ended up with what!! Last week, I tracked down the jacket of my dreams-it has chunky zipper pockets and studs on the collar, cuffs and waistband, plus it is a really fitted style and the softest leather too!!

I found it at Sue Ryder Care charity shop for £10 and I know it will go with everything and anything in my wardrobe-the search is now over!!

What are you searching for that you have yet to find or purchase?

Ahhhhh I had a jacket so similar to that but gave it to charity about 3 years ago...nooo! I've been searching for the perfect leather jacket for almost 2 years now!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi fashion dreamer-bad luck, always the way!! I've done that with items and soo regreted it. hope you find another one soon-2 years is too long:-(

Winnie said...

Nice find! Glad you finally found what you have been searching for. I want a pair of black oxfords and some new boots!

WendyB said...

Nice! And what a great price as usual!

jess said...

The jacket looks lovely on you. Its great you found one you like. I finally found an orange coat that I've been searching for for 2 years. So I don't think I need anything until next month probably.

Anny said...

You paid what!? WOW! And I thought my $4 peacoat was a steal :D

It looks great on you!!!

Congratulations! I knew you'd track it down, and it didn't take you long at all!

Karima said...

hi sharon, so glad you found what you've been looking for - isn't it a great feeling?! the jacket looks very nice and is certainly very versatile. i always am looking for nice boots and oxford shoes - but these are nigh impossible to find thrifted or second-hand in vienna... however, your luck gives me hope!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi karima-thanks for your lovely comment.Yes, I agree, footwear is rare to find, I'm a size EUR41 so harder still-but i do keep looking!

Ladies Who Lunch said...

The perfect shoes. The perfect dress.

Sigh. I don't know what I'm looking for but I'll know when I've found it!

saray said...

fashion herald said...

Deb said...

Hi Sharon! I remember that you were on the look out for that perfect one. I'm glad to know that you found it, and it looks great on you. Deb

Cal said...

I can't decide if I want to cheer for you for finding what you were looking for or whine about the fact I seem to be the only one without a perfect leather jacket! Haha...I'll go with a simple, CONGRATS! :)

*~The World is My Catwalk~* said...

Hi Sharon!!

That jacket is LOVELY!!! I've been searching for the lightest leather jacket so I can wear it in this tropical climate.. and I ended up with a leather-looking black one heehee

RASPBERRY said...

Wow, that jacket really is perfect! Usualy I'm more into brown leather jackets (can't wait for weather to get colder just so I can wear mine ^^) but that one is just lovely. It has a beautiful cut and suits you very very well! Excelent buy, I'm happy you found what you've been looking for :)

Snickers. It may seem odd, but I can never find snickers I like. Guess I'm just too picky ^^ I would die for some Oxford shoes as well, but I haven't seen any in Portugal.

Have a wonderful week :)

Demi said...
