Black leather jacket

On Sunday, I went to the boot sale and found this 80s leather jacket. I remember having a black batwing sleeved leather jacket back then and I loved the fastenings on this one, so for £3, I had to bring it home with me!!

I wanted a loose fit black leather jacket, so I can wear it more in winter too.

Aah, the 80s revisited!! Some trends like cycling shorts for going out in (for the gym is obviously acceptable!), or the curly perm, will never be revisited by me, but I love batwing sleeves, body con dresses and leggings- I might even be persuaded to try shoulder pads again and acid wash (snow wash) denim if I found the right pieces!! Its all about having fun and trying different styles, thrifting allows that without breaking the bank!!.

Cool jacket - it looks great on you too! All the eighties jackets I find are way insanely too large for me, but I am a midget.

SO impressed that you can pull that off, kitten. You look chic modern, whereas I'd just look like a stylistically impaired doofus. ;)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi sal-you are so lovely, thanks a lot, but I have to disagree that you would look like a doofus (never heard that word before, LOL). Thrifting I think gives us the opportunity to try things that are different and you may well pleasantly surprise yourself!!

I love batwings!! I particularly love batwing jumpers but they annoy me that I can't then fit my usual coats over the top of them. Perhaps I need a batwing jacket like this!! :D

ellie said...

Oh, my you do know how to work it in that jacket. Very cool. Sometimes, just a coat can give you a new confidence. Thank you so much for reading.
