The Red Jacket


I love the color red, I love read shoes, my hair is red, but for some reason when I wear red I feel like it's screaming, "LOOK AT MEEEE!!!". Well, I've got to get over this as my faithful black jacket (exactly the same as the style above) is getting retired. I bought the black Tripp NYC moto jacket about seven years ago and even though it's still in good shape, I'm not a size small jacket. I have never been a size small jacket in my adult life (wide shoulders), but it fit better back then and now it's just too tight. We had our fun together, now it's time to except I'm losing a wardrobe staple and to move onto wearing jackets that I do have and that do fit comfortably. I am one of those people who wear their favorite things until they are almost to pieces, I try to mend the item or re-purpose it into something, but I will also admit defeat. 

I also lost a favorite button-up "Robert Smith" over-sized shirt in the great spring closet clean out. Sigh. 


But obviously I'm not that broken up about it. Haha! I've just more shocked that the jacket hoarder needs to buy a new black jacket. Let the hunt begin!

Thank you for reading!

  2. I love your style! This outfit is so damn pretty! I know exactly what you mean by saying the colour red screams: LOOK AT ME! But your style is definitely worth a look :)

  3. I love red jackets although the colour does not suit me! They are so James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause! They look amazing on you!

    Oooh no, I know that losing something great in a clean out feeling! I have got rid of things either by mistake or thinking I would never wear them again then and then later wanted them for an outfit! The worst loss was a velvet bag of the "just big enough but not too big" sort. It's hard to get a good velvet bag these days!

    1. Thank you =D I agree, it's hard to find a good velvet bag, vintage and/or second-hand shops are probably the best places to look!

  9. I also have a red jacket and I feel that it is a bit loud sometimes as people give me "THE LOOK" when I wear it. I don't particularly care about that at this point in my life, we all need to wear what we want and enjoy life!

  10. Umm, I'm guilty of wearing things until they have fallen apart ... or Anita says to me 'hmm, that jacket is looking a *bit* tatty!', and then I realise that I haven't even noticed!! Which reminds me, my favourite one needs to be replaced too :*(
