Leather Jacket: French Connection*
Dress: Oasis (via Ebay)
A couple of weeks ago an email popped into my inbox asking if I would like to review some of French Connection’s new Autumn/Winter collection, and I was delighted when the Athena Jacket landed on my doormat a few days ago. I have been meaning to add a faux leather jacket to my wardrobe for forever but have just never quite got round to it. This jacket is absolutely gorgeous, I love the biker style and the quilted shoulders. The faux leather material feels lovely and soft but very durable, so I think it’s definitely worth the money as it feels like a great quality piece of clothing. French Connection is a bit more expensive than the shops I normally buy from, but if you’re going to be buying a classic, staple item like a coat or jacket which you’ll wear every day then I think it’s worth the investment.
The Athena Jacket has a lovely fitted shape and looks great with dresses and heels. I’ve paired it with my latest Ebay bargain here, an Oasis floral skater dress which I managed to win for around £5. Trawling through Ebay can be a bit boring, but it’s definitely worth it when you find nice things for cheap! Unfortunately I forgot to take a close up of the rose print as I was too busy posing in my new leather jacket, pretending I’m much more badass than I actually am. The only downside to this jacket is that it is quite tight fitting so I don’t think I’ll be able to squeeze big woolly jumpers underneath it when winter arrives. Think I might use that as an excuse to buy another more slouchy leather jacket, and keep this as my going-out one. You can never have too many jackets, right?!
