Jacket Kryptonite





About 100 years ago, I held in my possession the most perfect motorcycle jacket, the ace in a stack of wild cards. The luxury model fully equipped with all the bells and whistles, and all the untamed zipper gadgets… it was everything a girl could hope for and more. Unexpectedly, those proverbial I shoulda inadequacies resurfaced like some jacket kryptonite, because I’d let it go into the kingdom of charitable donations… I’d heedlessly surrendered my most coveted biker love child.

I’d like to think it’s just another fall must-have, but frankly, my insatiable list of things I can’t live without hasn’t been narrowed to one particular season for umpteen years. I’m thinking it’s a recurrent excuse… but in the meantime, I’m searching for that special someone. And until I get it, if ever, all the others in my sisterhood of jackets will have to suffice. With that said, I’ll start my invasion with this uber-swanky, glitter-infested little number.

Boots, Mizrahi. DIY studded cutoffs, vintage. DIY T-shirt, Mossimo.

In other world news... I want to send a bouquet of sincere gratitude into the cyber-universe to the ever-lovely *Iced coffee latte for giving me the 'Love Award'!!

And while I could hardly believe I was deserving of such an honor, The Seeker and her awe-inspiring methods went and gave me the Prémio Dardos, given in recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing.



Thank you my sweets...

While it's going to be nearly impossible to decide, I'm working on a blog award list.

Anyway, as I said, you look gorgeous in this outfit, it is really "rock'n'chic", just like I like it !!
By the way, thanks a lot for your comments, I was so glad to read them !
Have a nice day, because tomorrow will be a very different one !

Sarah said…
I'm sure you get this alot.. but you look like L.Lo with your aviators on! Hope u take it as a compliment cause I think she's so damn awesome. But the difference is you're a stylist in your own right, u don't need to hire one.

Definitely rocking the biker vibe.

adore those booties!!

you rock them very well<3
Eelie said…
I'm giving you a resounding NOOOOOOOOO on that front. I so not think it can be likened to getting back onto a bike/horse and remembering all that you'd temporarily forgotten.

This i can vouch for because 2 years ago i hopped onto Kenny (a friends' horse) in a paddock and he galloped away when i wanted a slight trot. Granted, my previous time spent on a horse was when i was 4 and can hardly remember the instance but that doesn't matter!? :O Ooooooh... :P

I could've sworn that jacket was brown velvet which would've been fabulous but glitter? Even more so lol and that slashing of the t-shirts is actually daring but i likey! Btw, i notice your boots, are they the same as the ones you blogged a while ago!? I see you've added another bra-strap? lol. How creative and cool is that!
mandy L. said…
i wish i could pull off glitter jacket, Bella!!! Always love the writing, always heart the fashion!

i'm searching for the perfect one too!!

J.Yo said…
only you, i believe can pull this look off without even touching the word 'slutty'. you just say sexy all over.

and yeah, biker jacket will do great on this outfit, but hey, its too cliche.
i think this jacket made it look fresher! ^^
LENORENEVERMORE said…

DIY: Malian Mud Cloth Bench

Last year, hidden away in a dusty corner of one of my favorite antique stores, I discovered this decorative wooden bench. The $20 price tag and carved details were too good to ignore and I quickly scooped it up. Even with its (original) dingy blue legs and worn crushed velvet body, I hoped that one day I could restore its soulless existence into something more appealing. After a little black paint and the beautiful design of this hand-woven Malian mud cloth, it looks better than ever!

Love falling into you...

Waiting for cool autumn nights, corset lacing, a whimsy of gossamer textures, innovative shoulder pads and puff sleeves, midnight cappuccinos, muted palettes, delicate ruffle detailing, and biker boots.
