5th skin





(Chronicles of Never '5th skin' black leather jacket)

Now the proud and happy owner of a legit leather jacket made from beautiful lamb skin and it was 40% off (I won't tell you how much it was originally heeeheeeee). I really wanted to invest in a proper leather jacket though, not a crappy faux one. I put it on lay-by and my boyfriend is in the good books again when he surprised me by paying the lay-by off and turning up at my doorstep with it in his hands. Outfit post coming soon :)

  38. I found an amazing draped leather jacket on ASOS but they sold out! My friend also got one very similar to this made in Bali but in nude (for $110!!!) It's rather incredible and the raw leather smells and looks amazzing.

    And yeah LJ is great. I'm learning lots and I think it will be great to kick start my career in marketing/whatever it is I wanna do! Ha. But in terms of catalogue models, I think they're vision has changed over the past year and it has become rather fashion forward...for an active wear brand!
