It is still super cold here in St. John's so we either have to wear a lot of layers or wear a warm jacket. As such, my leather jacket has become my go to jacket. However, I have been feeling a bit uninspired by the style of the coat and I feel like I need an updated version.
As I normally do, when I decide that I want to buy something new, I began to research leather jackets online. And to my surprise, my search pulled up a lot of PU leather aka fake leather (leather made from polyurethane or plastic). And although I am a vegetarian, I am not really one for fake leather.
As long as people (meaning other people) are eating meat, I think that we should use as much of the animal as possible. I am not super keen on the idea of wearing the skin of an animal over my shoulders, however, I am a bit of a naturalist and would therefore prefer to wear something real, something from nature, rather than human-made plastic leather which can't breath and has a very short shelf life. I know there are environment issues to both leather (the tanning process) and PU leather (which needs to be manufactured and cannot bio-degrade), however I think that real leather is the way to go. What are your thoughts on the subject??
I absolutely love the looks of this leather jacket on this fashionista seen on stockholm street style.
Although the jackets below are all way out of my price range, I love the edgy biker style combined with their class cuts.
P.S. I also wanted to say Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband. You mean the world to me!! (I would put a picture of him but he is not really into being featured on the blog and since it is his birthday I thought I better not!!)
