Remember when I had such a hard time buying piles of leather jackets and never wearing them? I think I must have cracked that nut - at least the "never wearing" part.
I spotted this jacket late at night while watching Elementary online - I had been drooling over Watson's wardrobe for some time, and when she popped up wearing this jacket, I had to pause the show and scour the net for it. It was far too expensive, and I was between sizes anyway. But! There was one on Ebay being sold because it had stretched out too much for the original owner... elementary, indeed. I'm crazy about the light weight, minimal moto styling, and the ephemeral gray/olive/brown/mud color.
I think I liked yesterday's styling better (pic 2 from YLF meetup), because of the higher contrast between top and jacket. This realization is leading me to see that I need more light/white tops. But anyway, I still liked the dark, tonal look a lot. Just wish I had switched out the bag, to match the low-contrast outfit.
I've been feeling a little ragged and, thus, absent from the forum. My oldest friend lost her father, so I stayed with her family for a couple days. Before that were two solid weeks of jam-packed triple-points appointments. There was also a new systems training in there somewhere. And a lot of stress eating. :T
Bonus addition: the screencap that launched my priority mail package.
