    At risk of enabling here -- get it. It is gorgeous on you.

  • viva replied 3 years ago

    I second the motion.

  • Ginkgo replied 3 years ago

    Buy -- this looks like it was made for you.

  • Janet replied 3 years ago

    I looked at the photo and said "Oooh" out loud.

    That means yes, you should get it. Pure fabulosity.

  • Ariadne replied 3 years ago

    BBQ!

  • Thistle replied 3 years ago

    Gorgeous!  Totally enabling on that one :)

  • replied 3 years ago

    Gorgeous!

  • rae replied 3 years ago

    Yaaaay. It is mine!

    Now the pajama jeans are going to have to be pretty awesome to stay, but I will cross that bridge when I get home...

  • rachylou replied 3 years ago

    yay!

  • catgirl replied 3 years ago

    Leather feeding frenzy!

  • Angie replied 3 years ago

    That's Forest Green. And on trend for Fall 2014.

    Killer jacket. 

    Warning: Remember your leather jacket requirements, and how many you passed on because they didn't work. Be very discerning about this leather jacket.

    Now that I am at home, I see the color isn't coming through exactly. It is this one... looks like the official color name is Sage.

    I hear you, Angie! I will have to try it with a bunch of outfits today. The lining materials and weight are right for me. Does it look like an indoor jacket to you? I think my original problem was that I was buying outdoor jackets to wear inside. Then I started making the mistake of polyester linings. 

  • Vicki replied 3 years ago

    OMG!!!  Take it home, NOW!!!  ETA:  What kind of lining is this and do you recommend, Rae?

  • Echo replied 3 years ago

    I realize I am late to the party, but I am so glad you took it home! It looks like a fabulous quality jacket, and it fits you perfectly. I hope it plays well with the rest of your wardrobe!

  • Eliza replied 3 years ago

    Wow.  it looks great on you- love the shape at the hem.  The color comes across differently (and even more appealing to me) on the website.   
    It is worthwhile to test it out with your wardrobe, but I see why it was compelling. 

  • karymk replied 3 years ago

    Wait, how many leather jackets do you own already?

  • Angie replied 3 years ago

    Kind of looks like a teal on the link you posted. 

    Absolutely looks like an indoor jacket. 

  • clearlyclaire replied 3 years ago

    Yes! I love it. Cotton lining? Light weight? The minimal zippers/belts/hardware should make it super easy to wear indoors. 

    I forget what your rules are. Do you have to let another leather jacket go if you keep this one?

  • April replied 3 years ago

    Mmm... green leather jackets.  If I didn't already have two...

  • Mia replied 3 years ago

    Absolutely stunning!  If it passes the "can I make outfits test" it's a keeper.

  • Ariadne replied 3 years ago

    It looks even more killer gorgeous in the stock photos.  Let's see it with some outfits!

  • rae replied 3 years ago

    I will go with "teal," then! It almost matches my "emerald" watch, is a little more seafoamy than my "bottle" green Vince Camuto top, and lighter and more green toned than my "dark teal" Muubaa moto. 

    Vicki, the body lining is a brushed cotton, almost flannel-ish. The sleeves are lined in acetate. I totally recommend it!

    Claire, no, I don't have to let another leather jacket go. I just did a big purge anyway, so I don't have to come up with something to kick out. 

    Karymk, I currently have three leathers that I wear indoors, plus a cheapie black Spiegel that is only for outdoor wear. 

  • rae replied 3 years ago

    some outfit ideas. colors can be interchanged a bit, but I'm really feeling white and gray with the jacket today. Also like it with the fitting room outfit. 

  • rabbit replied 3 years ago

    looks good! I keep meaning to ask, what are the boots you are wearing in #1?

  • deb replied 3 years ago

    This totally works! I like the color in the link.

  • rae replied 3 years ago

    Rabbit, the boots are the "Major" style by Fergie, from a couple years ago.

    thanks!

  • Sveta replied 3 years ago

    Love it - great find!

  • JAileen replied 3 years ago

    Gorgeous!

  • catgirl replied 3 years ago

    Wow, you are on a roll - this, the R&Bs, and I know there was some other recent fab find I'm forgetting.  Can't keep up!  This is a great color to add to your collection...

  • CocoLion replied 3 years ago

    Looks stunning on you, and the fit is flawless.  The good fit is the first thing I noticed.

  • Gigi replied 3 years ago

    Rae, this jacket looks really good on you. If it's comfy and a good price, I would certainly keep it.

  • Deborah replied 3 years ago

    Perfect! Made for you! You must have this;)

  • havanagirl replied 3 years ago

    Glad to read you bought it!  It really does look fabulous - the cut of it really complements your hairstyle. 

  • clearlyclaire replied 3 years ago

    Wow, that yellow jacket is a beauty, too! Your legs look incredible in all the boots and skirts combos. Just sayin'.

    @Everyone: don't you know that Rae is the fit model for every single leather jacket ever made? That is the only explanation for why they always look SO amazing on her. ;)
