Questionable Shopping



I am not typically in the habit of posting photos of things I buy, nor am I in the habit of not centering my photos (or in the habit of spelling center like that either, frankly). But I went to Filene's after work before meeting E for dinner at Bistro du Coin to buy a boring jacket and more work pants. As you can see, there is a distinct lack of work pants in these images. The only ones I liked were the same as the ones I already have, which have a minute hole which can be repaired. To the right is my new walk-to-work jacket (boring, safe, functional) and some shoes which I decided I should buy. I'm not entirely sure why.

To the left is a more questionable purchase- yes, it is a leather motorcycle jacket and, yes, it is blue. It is also Ungaro and reduced from $450 to $70. I'm not entirely sure what I think about it, honestly. I'm going to try it with my jeans before I take the tags off so I can possibly return it. It's real leather too (for $70 I was convinced it had to be pleather) but lined with acetate, alas, which I always confused with acetone which is used to dehydrate bodies before dissection (thank you Bodies Exhibition) and is also possibly the key ingredient in nail polish remover.

Phew. I'm so undecided. I think I'm going to try it at the Saturday night opening I'm going to (and quite looking forward to).
