Vintage leather

Posted on

I love this jacket. I bought it at Ijhallen – a massive monthly fleamarket in a warehouse in the north of Amsterdam. I haggled and haggled but the lady knew she had a wee beauty on her hands so I only managed to get € 5 off the asking price. However as much as I love it, I have to make myself wear it.I see it as a ‘piece’ rather than a jacket.

At the moment the weather is miserable. Rain every day and a quite cold for the beginning of summer. It’s perfect leather jacket weather. So I’m trying to wear it as a jacket – you know, just throw it on over the top over what I’m wearing and leave the house. I think it’s working.

Jacket – vintage; t-shirt – Vila; skirt – handmade; tights – market € 1!; boots – on sale from Ballantynes a few years ago; black pearls – gift from a friend.
