Don’t know about you, but I tend to wear everything new at the very first time I can, even if we’re just about to make some errands and get some food. It’s a great way to test everything in a shorter period of time, but it especially useful when I’ve got new shoes which usually need some break in.
I haven’t got new shoes (yet), but a new jacket, a pair of new/old Levi’s 501s, a new star sign pendant necklace and fairly new ‘summer’ bag, which is way to handy and lightweight to change for something more proper for the new season. Also, I may or may not have been lazy to move my sh*t somewhere else. That’s why I don’t like to have too many bags – even though I love them -, and also because it’s kinda hard to get nice and practical one with an affordable (not cheap, but reasonably priced!) price tag.
On the other hand, leather jackets are not that tricky. This full leather one from Mango is very reasonably priced at £120, actually one of the cheapest options, but I have no problems with it whatsoever. The leather is soft, the zips run smooth and it instantly adds a cool factor to any look.
A healthier alternative to cigarettes if you will. Also, because as a vegetarian – who btw loves fashion and beautiful things overall, but have not too much money on it, duh – , I feel sorry for the animals, but Mango claims none of them were killed for their hide, which is a bit comforting at least. If animals have to die for us anyway (after a happy life hopefully), we better use every bits of them. We’re not there yet, but have to start somewhere. Paying attention and balancing seem like a good place to start, don’t they?
