Splurge vs Steal




So I know this is the "splurge vs steal" of the season; but I can't help but share my fabulous leather find! While in New York the other weekend my main mission was to find a great leather/faux leather jacket. DC had proven to not have too great of a selection so I was excited to test the waters in New York. I knew from the beginning I wanted the leather to be quilted or at least have a quilted detail so when I saw Emily Schuman over at Cupcakes & Cashmere sporting her amazing Annie Bing find I immediately fell in love. Unfortunately, I don't have that much extra cash laying around so I began searching for alternatives solutions. I really liked this Zara version but personally felt it looked slightly manly on me. Once in New York I found this amazing Top Shop version, only to find the stores were all out of my size and it was only available online. About to give up, is when I stumbled upon this little beauty in probably the best Zara I've been in on the Upper West Side. It was one of those moments where you just know an item is meant to come home with you. It's fit is feminine, it has the quilted detail I love, a smaller collar, & the zippers are more gold than silver which sealed the deal for me. At it's price point I couldn't say no! [Also, it comes in white which the more I look at it the more I feel like I need it in my life!]
