Personalized Leather Jacket
Hello my darling people. How are you doing and how was your Halloween and Thanksgiving? I hope you had a splendid time with your loved ones. And speaking of things we love, I come at you with another fashion related post. It is regarding of curse my fall wardrobe. One of my most worn pieces during the fall season has to be my personalized leather jacket. It is for sure an old one. But like the most leather jackets, it has kept its form and is practically in a perfect condition. Since I have a few of these babies in my closet, I decided to risk it and to try and personalizing that piece.
As most of you know I have a bit of a background in drawing, so this project did not scare me at all. Even if you are lacking the perfect drawing abilities, you can customize your jacket.All you need is an acrylic paint and a brush.
I have to confess that I have seen a few videos of people doing that customization on the gram. So my fondness of the idea grew bigger. So big that one day I took that jacket out and started painting. I had no idea what will come out at the end. Or even what I was going to draw. It took no more than 30 minutes. And I was pretty happy with the end result. The flowers on the shoulders came pretty natural to life, since I really love floral motives and florals were really in for the past few seasons. The lettering was kind of an homage to my fashion blog. I preferred the distressed and not so perfect writing, that is why i peeled the paint off on a few places. And there it was: my very own personalized leather jacket.
The central piece of that look is the leather jacket. I wanted to create an edgy look, but with elements of elegance. That is also why I have chosen a classic wool Gant jumper with a classic slim fit wool trousers (H&M). To achieve the edginess I have put all my efforts in the accessories. The studded double monks you already know from my previous blog post. The Fendi Monster backpack was a perfect addition to the whole ensemble. Gold jewelry and watch and also gold Rayban shades make the look complete.
I hope you enjoyed the post and could find a bit inspiration to inject in your daily wardrobe. Stay safe
