|Not So Tough: Bella takes to the streets all smiley in her tweed version of Biker Babe|
Ah, the quintessential rebel garment: the classic leather biker jacket. Me? Not tough enough to wear the leather version of it. While I've attempted to sport a plaid wool version in the past, and a bright red non-leather one in the future (future outfit post that is) I'm not sure a sleek black as your soul version suits me. However, a moto mock up in TWEED? Count me in the race, folks.
When I saw this tweed wool version from JACOB, I knew I had to have it. The soft wool fabric in the nubby texture makes the jacket looks less tough, but still wants to flirt with bad boys. Well, at least with MY bad boy. I've been raiding HIS closet, and enjoying his collection of skater boy/punk clothing brought out of storage from his youth. In fact, I've been "borrowing" a bit, and enjoying my new tomboy status wearing his old vintage concert T-shirts and jeans.
My biker babe-meets-long-shoreman look is pretty cute, yeah?
Red knit cap, ala Team Zissou has been parked permanently on my head lately (baby, it's cold outside!) and was purchased via Amazon for under $5 bucks. The T-shirt and jeans were "borrowed" from the boy, and therefore free. The jacket is presently on sale, and under $50. Supplies are limited, and available to Canadian shoppers only. But boy! This jacket is hella cool. <---That would be California speak for Awesome-Canook-Tweed-Biker-Jacket. The rest of the ensemble are just some personal touches: Tweed gets tweaked with my green Plaidurday commemorative pin, and a pin from my favorite local non-profit, TWIF. TWIF is short for The World Is Fun, and it works to link volunteers and corporations with charities, and have fun while doing so. Fun also, are my warm and toasty striped socks, and the best booties on the planet (comfort and crazy cute AND thrifted for under $20 bucks make them an all time favorite): United Nude booties in black.
Yup, my moto's got mojo.
