straight to hell jacket

Pink is cool but it never got to me till I saw this skirt.  It’s the combo of pleats, the long length (I sized up so it sits lower) and the right pink shade.  Still I always feel it’s a bit too girly on me hence the jacket.

Leather jacket: Trash & Vaudeville on St. Marks in the East Village (ask for Jimmy if you go). Try River Island, I like this perfed one, Schott or Asos.   Skirt: Asos. Comes in yellow (gorge!). Shoes: Tom Ford (on sale thx to the shoe Gods).  Try IRO,  Asos, Avro or Saint Laurent (both on sale).  Clutch: Bao Bao (I LOVE the neon one). 

Yea I’m in pink but it all feels a bit mod chic with the f**k off pointy silver heels.  Before I started this blog I wore a pair for ages years ago so this is the replacements.

If you have white leather jacket phobia like I did, just dab some of this on once in a while. Works on light coloured bags as well and I’ve had mine for years.

ps. I have the same leather jacket in my shop for sale if anyone’s after one.

    As always LOVE when you do “tough girlie” look… I will confess, when you are ready to get rid of that acid green lace skirt
    (the one that looks like Christopher Kane)… let me know…need it in my life…!

    I love the blend of tough and girly! Now you’re making me crave a white leather jacket for summer!

      I’ve always loved white leather in whatever form so a jacket is no exception. They don’t date either. Keeps looking fresh every summer. Geeeeet oooooonnnnneeee…

    • Karen says:
