A LEATHER JACKET ON THE VERANDA



The chill of Autumn is in the air today, so a
warmer jacket was the order of the day.





I love a leather jacket and have
collected several over many years, 
starting in 1975 with a burgundy
one  bought in England.
Working in two stores selling
leather surely helped
my collection to grow, cost
price is always a bonus.




A back view of the jacket,
looking a little like 
armour from this angle.
The jacket is by
Harry Who, and has been with
me for many years.


The lovely Tamera Beardsley had an
interesting post on her blog today about
the importance of taking photographs
of ourselves. 
Accepting ourselves as the vibrant, powerful
women we are is so important and more so as we age.





The cool change is a good 
excuse to bring out my
leopard gloves to
keep the shoes company.

  7. That is statement making leather jacket if ever there was. I love how, at a distance, it looks a fair bit like ruffles, but get up close and discover that it indeed "scales" of leather with studs. Awesome!

  9. This is a GREAT jacket, and you should wear it every day for the rest of your life! Seriously, you look wonderful, and you've styled it to a T. Feminine and edgy all at once. What a pretty head-and-shoulders photo of you, and you wear your red lipstick elegantly! (I try but always take it off ... I think it makes me look mean.) So good that you've been able to make a collection. It must have been a great thrill when your jacket came home with you.
    Sorry I'm so late ... oddly busy week!
