What I Wore : Leather Jacket


OOTD Leather Jacket


I am a big fan of casual glam, and nothing says I’m with the band rock chick casual glam more than a cool leather jacket.

My gorgeous leather jacket is part of a thrifting tale of awesomeness.  I picked it up at the Rozelle Markets one very rainy Sunday morning.  I gave them $60 and received a beautifully beaten up Miu Miu tan leather tote, vintage Missoni knit, Veronika Maine blouse, and the jacket.  Another $10 got us a mint copy of Stephanie Alexander’s Cooks Companion and a giant Scooby Doo toy.  I tried very hard to give them more money!  A young couple moving overseas and having a massive clearout.  They were completely rained out, bless them.
