End of 2017: What I bought – The Coats and Jackets Edition
WHAT I BOUGHT (NOVEMBER & DECEMBER 2017 ONLY)
Note: Most of the reviews on a lot of what I have purchased can be found under this tag: Style Shopper because it would have been helpful for me to read these reviews online and I am trying to pass on the online shopping <3
And uhh.. this is just for November & December 2017.
This is NOT my Year End Post. That is .. coming later.
m0851 leather swing shawl raincoat with a deep hood in black
[ 30% off ]
Waterproof. Leather. This is the Danka Leather raincoat.. I actually really hate raincoats, you get all sweaty inside from the plastic, and they never look nice and chic.
This? Looks GREAT. Soft leather, but waterproof with a deep hood to keep water off my face. I plan on wearing it a lot.
I have been waiting for this coat to go on sale for a long time, and I missed out on their gorgeous taupe leather last year, so this year, I went with the black. The hood is very deep like a shawl so it is a bit Jedi Master, which is why I didn’t take it in Camel because it made me look too much like a Star Wars extra.
I’d show you other options but no one makes a waterproof leather raincoat except for m0851.
Banana Republic Olivia Palermo Collaboration Grey Flannel Bomber Jacket [ 50% off ]
Used up the rest of my BR credit at the store, and picked up the only Olivia Palermo Collaboration piece I liked from the store.
I am not the only one who thought this because it seems to have been the only piece to sell out. I mean who is really going to wear this hideous red coat?
This super soft, comfortable bomber varsity-style flannel jacket with very cool sleeves. They’re big and billowly at the wrist, almost bishop-sleeve-like but it adds something to an otherwise plain jacket. I like it but some people hate it because it looks too bubbly.
I wore it the other day and liked the athleisure style of it without it going too far into the “I’m out in exercise clothes” wear…
Parker Easton Moto Leather Jacket in Aquarius
[ 50% off ]
Review coming up on Style Shopper of the two Parker jackets I got… this one is a real stunner.
I saw it in navy blue and KNEW it had to come home with me. I was a goner. I had been waiting 2 years for the store to put it on sale and she finally did.
Parker Belfast Black Leather with a Cable Knit Sweater Back Moto Leather Jacket
[ THRIFTED ]
Classic biker moto from the front…
AND CABLE KNIT IN THE BACK!!!!!!
I love this detail. The back is not lined by the way, so it does have some airflow with the cable knit.
Aritzia Chevalier Tuxedo-Style Shawl Blazer
[ THRIFTED ]
Yesssssss… a tuxedo style shawl blazer. This one above is the pricey Stella McCartney and I cannot find the Aritzia version of it online because it is such an old model..
Iris Setlakwe Cropped Black Leather and Fabric Shawl Blazer [ 50% off ]
Sorry. That’s the photo in my StyleBook app because it is not online anywhere.
It has cool leather ribbed shawl fronts and the arms in a leather rib, a lot like those Sentaler coats I lust after. I still will own a Sentaler coat one day but not for now.
Anyway it is my first cropped blazer and it looks great with high waisted skirts or pants. Why have I not been on the bandwagon of this cropped coat business before!?!?
