Obviously I have to start with this metallic jacket. I bought it roughly about 7-8 years ago, not to sure. Anyway, I remember feeling very bold buying this piece as is was quite out there for me at the time, or so it seemed being a metallic gold semi bomber like jacket. My mum always the encourager of me buying things a little different told me that I should go for it and so I did.
A week or so later we found ourselves back in Topshop doing our weekly rounds of checking all the new in's and I remember overhearing these ladies laughing at the metallic jacket that was hanging there so innocently ;) making a comment like "who would wear that"! And I felt that all that seemed to imply, was that they couldn't see past the fact it was gold and hearing and witnessing that limited outlook only seemed to make me feel better in my decision of buying this AWESOME jacket! Haha, all these years later and I finally got the chance to get that off my chest!
Well, time sure does fly and i'm once again wearing it in Paris for fashion week, along with another fun piece that I haven't worn in while, my fringed vest. I'm definitely feeling like anything suede or fringed is going to be the underdog this Spring/Summer but whether i'm right in that statement or not, i'm sure as hell going to be investing in more of it!
