Leather Lover

Marina Monroe Veda Jacket

If there’s one thing that every woman should have in her closet, it’s a leather jacket.  And when I say “a leather jacket”, I mean at least 10.  That’s normal, right?

I’m not ashamed to admit that I probably have upwards of 25 leather jackets in my wardrobe- I wear one almost every day, and when you wear something that frequently you need options!  My new favorite leather jacket is from Veda (always Veda), and I can’t get enough of its beaded sleeves.  Neither can Olga!  Even though we wore our beaded leathers in pretty much the same exact way, I think the possibilities are endless for this piece.  Over an evening gown, with boyfriend jeans, on top of a shift dress…

To me, the over-the-top embellished sleeves are a throwback to 80s glamour.  To counteract that 80s feel, Olga and I made sure the rest of the pieces we wore were ultra-modern.

Cartoon muscle tees from cool-girl brand Laundry Room added a hip, grungy feel to these sparkly toppers.  I went for a melting Bart tee while Olga chose a dripping Minnie Mouse version.  So cute!  I added waxed drop-crotch pants, Olga rocked a leather-on-leather combo, and that’s where our differences end!

Both of us opted for Giuseppe Zanotti strappy buckle-up booties (mine in nude leather, Olga’s in red suede) and Olympia Le Tan book clutches.

Since the jacket sleeves are so bling-y, we used extra accessories sparingly.  We added a few rings and our matching outfits were complete!
