I saw the Trouve Black Leather Jacket in the catalog and immediately emailed my contact at Nordstrom to hold one for me. He didn't have my size left, so we pre-ordered it. Super glad mine arrived as it's no longer available online.
It's everything you want a leather jacket to be - soft, buttery leather, a great fit and a classic style with an edge. I cannot wait to start wearing this!
Many of you know that I work retail. So one of my "rules" when making purchases outside my store is that it must be something that I cannot find at my retailer. It just doesn't make sense to spend full price / sale money on something I could buy with my discount.
When I saw this leather/silk tee, I knew it was the perfect piece to take home. It will be a great going out top with jeans, but also sassy tucked in to a skirt. I will get a lot of wear out of this.
Lastly, my main mission - black boots.
I tried on ALOT of boots. I dismissed these at first because they had a bit more detailing than I wanted - I wanted simple and streamlined. But I was convinced to try them on and it made all the difference in the world.
These are easy to get off and on, the leather feels nice and they have a slight heel. My favorite part is that they come up a tad higher than most boots - so they are almost covering your knee. I think my go to brown boots of last Fall will be replaced with these!
There must have been something in the water that evening, but I was attracted to everything involving leather - I promise I am not leading a secret life!
What did you pick up this year?
