Way back in 2009 when leather jackets hit the scene I did not hesitate in getting my hands on one. Sadly, as the HSC would have it, during that period in 2009 I had stacked on weight - the notorious HSC Kilos. Now 3 years on I have lost all of that weight and the leather jacket no longer fits - it's a size 12 and I'm now a size 6...Luckily for me Morgan Joanel of Mojomade happened to have a few of her signature studded leather jackets left so without a second thought I nabbed one up.
As Melissa from Flourished & Sunkissed noted recently, which I agree wholeheartedly, I like to wear new pieces on special occasions. I want that piece's "first time" to be special so what better way of taking my leather jacket's virginity then to take it out on the town to see Steve Hughes? The moment I put it on I knew it was love - I have now worn this jacket countless number of times, so expect to see it crop in many, many more upcoming posts :)
