I had actually planned to upload a nice DIY project I did during summer-
but because of today's shopping loot, I felt it was fitting to spread the good news a.s.a.p.!
If you're in the hunt for a good quality biker jacket, then look no further: Zara currently stocks THE most perfect jacket ever! It's made from real leather, miles away from the obnoxious faux leather jackets that have flooded the shops lately :/
See for yourselves: doesn't it look fab?
It's part of the TRF line that is targeted to a younger clientele, which to be honest, it leaves me indifferent the majority of times. However, I've found the TRF coats and jackets to be way prettier than those from the Basic line; most of my winter coats are from Trafaluc! Thus when I spotted that leather jacket on the website (link!), I searched every Zara store downtown to locate it- and I finally found it in the shop at Stadiou str.
I'm so relieved!!!
Here's a couple of pics I took in the fitting room wearing this jacket:
Facts about the TRF leather jacket:
* made of soft lamb leather
* the sizing is perfect: it's as short and "roomy" as it should be
* plain cloth lining on the inside
* price: €119. Honestly guys, that's a good deal for a leather jacket that's going
to last years in your wardrobe.
[Also, what do you think of the kitty pants and the black maxi skirt? I was contemplating on buying both, until I looked at my wallet and realised I only had cash for the jacket...]
On another note, I must confess my latest love affair with cherry red lipsticks! Something strange happened a couple of days ago: I did my makeup as usual for my morning errands, but something didn't feel right- it was the nude lipstick I was wearing!
I took it off and replaced it with an old cherry red lipstick, and that was it.
I'm now officialy a red lipstick wearer. On daytime. Every single day. Yep.
I hope you found this post helpful- believe me, it's so hard to find a nice leather jacket with a decent pricetag these days! If you like the one I bought for myself, rush out to your nearest Zara and get it. Hopefully, it will still be in stock!
Have you embraced the biker jacket trend?
Which Zara clothing line do you prefer, the TRF or the Basics/Women?
