A vision before my wedding and this faux fur moto jacket from Silence and Noise was going to fulfill it. I had purchased this beauty a week before my I do's. I had this insanely gorgeous, label-less lace wedding dress that had a strong vintage vibe. Pairing it with this faux fur moto jacket would give an added look of edge, especially in pictures, which I love oh so much. However, on my wedding day, as anyone's wedding day, it was a whirlwind of emotions and joyous chaos. It was also 70 degrees in May and my faux fur was fur-gotten. OH WOW! That a level of bad I didn't even know I could reach with my jokes.
No fear, this jacket has acquired plenty of air time and this fall is no exception! With its ripple-effect pattern which mimics the print on a zebra, it is the focal point of any outfit. It is a bit cropped. It is ultra-soft. Oh, and who doesn't love the alabaster color? With the full lining, it is a great outwear piece for the harsh Pittsburgh winters; however, I prefer to rock this moto in the fall. When I wear statement jackets, I never want to take them off when entering the indoors. I turn into Carrie Bradshaw when she was asked to remove her shoes for a party, "But... this is an outfit." As the temperature dips into the fifties, layering this jacket over a barely there band tee or seamless tank becomes the perfect, weather appropriate concoction.
Chucks with a splash of leather became my vehicle for which Jenna of Balance and Chaos and I ran around the Strip District snapping pictures and laughing. Head over to her blog to swoon over a sick bomber jacket and witness how compacted cardboard can be beautiful.
