The great bomber caper of 2010

Joe’s mom gave me a giftcard for my birthday, and I haven’t had the chance to use it until now. I was looking for a faux leather bomber, because I’ve been on the search for one that I like for a few years (I’m picky about where jackets hit me).

I ended up finding two dress (one is the navy version my new bud Lisa wore to our meetup!), and something else that really surprised me.

I never thought I’d tell the story that I’m about to tell you. It shocks me as much as I am sure it will shock you.

I arrived in Macy’s, in the Juniors department, ready to try on some of the faux leather jackets I knew would be there. But my attention immediately turned to the sequined jacket in the Material Girl section.

Oh yes, you heard me right. I tried on stuff from Madonna’s collection. And the worst part? I loved the jacket.

I’m slightly ashamed.

But the jacket? Kind of amazing. It hits me at just the place I was looking for, and although it’s not faux leather, it’s 100% polyester and sequins, which means I’ll look like it’s 1989 for years to come.

I can totally wear a sequined jacket to work, right? I mean, no one is going to think I’ve lost my mind for wearing it?

Right? RIGHT?!

Ok, fine. Maybe I won’t wear it to work. But I’m wearing it to sleep it. I’m in love with the sequins.

  2. Umm, yes you CAN wear a sequined jacket to work! It’s the perfect outerwear for an “internet girl.” πŸ™‚ I’m sure Madonna wears hers to work every day. Do it!

  3. that jacket is too cute. I like how they wear sequins today pairing with casual things like jeans etc…
    I have a silver-ish bronze faux leather biker jacket from Forever 21. I bought it last year and never wore it. It’s size L but I believe F21 makes their jackets and coats to narrow in shoulders. i need to take it to Pluto’s Closet or sell it on Ebay…
    i really like your sequined jacket though…
