Dreaming of Shearling
I’ve fallen in love with a coat style, but my objective is to be very warm. I’m longing for a coat, that could be a rug maybe, I’m looking for some shag or shearling.
In my dreams, I think about this Rick Owens yummy leather jacket. I want to wrap myself up in it and never leave the house again. Someone was recently selling this on eBay.
A while back while venturing through Forever 21 with Diana my sister, we came across a jacket that was kind of a throw back to what could be the RO jacket. There was also another one online. I can swear the one we saw in the store was even slightly different from these. What you give up in price you give up in quality, never compare real to fake leather. Also, these jackets are cut a bit short and boxy. Someone with a smaller frame might fit them well. But I don’t want to wear a jacket that sits above or at my waist, I want to be warm!
Here then I am not left with many options. I’ve tried looking on ebay, I search for some combination of shearling and motorcycle jacket. So I was checking out Etsy on the tip of another blogger and ran across this search for shearling The Black Market Baby. Which is just amazing, I think I will save up to buy something from there. These caught my eye
AND THEN…on black Friday while shopping with Diana and our mom. We came across this beauty at Zara. It’s not fur, nor leather (I think), but it’s so soft and warm. I want to live in this. Like a non ugly snuggie. I really think if they had had it in my size, I would have bought it for the $99 price tag. A girl can only dream.
