Someday I will buy myself a leather jacket. A real one. I will save my pennies and when I finally get it I will love it all the more for having had to work and wait for it. I will wear it forever and take good care of it and pass it down to my hypothetical daughter, who will also love it and care for it and wear it forever.
Until that happens, there's Forever 21.
Zara Leather Jacket - $249 (also comes in white [my fav, I think], and black)
F21 Faux Leather Bomber - $32.80
Hypothetical situation: a wealthy distant relative passes away and leaves you the exact amount of money you need to buy yourself a real leather jacket. What color would you get? Black? White? Brown? Something kind of fun like the pink above?
