Best of the Week: 11/03/17

For my birthday this year I wanted a classic biker jacket — I have a lot of leather jackets but nothing too authentic anymore. So after trying on a few, came to this perfect belt-less one. At first it’s ridiculously stiff, which almost turned me off completely until Mike swore it would break in nicely (he’s a biker, he knows). He also pointed out that the zippers open onto bare skin which he finds “badass”, and It has good brass hardware that will get better with age. I broke it in in two days and I think it looks almost designer-y while also feeling a little vintage. Plus it’s fitted enough to wear under a parka. In other words, I definitely made the right choice.
 
A few years ago in Paris I bought a couple of bracelets in the Marais that looked to be solid 22k gold, but were in fact rubber (like the black ones Madonna always wore), Recently I wanted a whole wrist of them so did a little research and found out they were not only cool-looking, but blessed to boot, and I found a whole set of them right here,
I can’t stop with the fanny packs and here’s my new favorite. It’s handmade and under $45 — I have black, brown and light camel suede. They have three pockets, a little key fob, and hold a crazy amount of stuff without ever making you feel like you’re bogged down.  If I need to carry more I just strap one of these across my chest and put the computer and bigger stuff in a tote.
 
And I love this almost simple sweater with sleeves that make it just fun/cool enough to not feel boring.

    Happy Birthday, Andrea! And I can’t believe that fanny pack–and the price! I love being hands-free and this bag looks like it would hold everything I need!

      Hi — thanks for reading! I have an almost child-like sized wrist so the small are a teensy bit bigger than I would have like for me. I guess they’re true to size and they stretch! xx
