Feathers Fantasy Comes True

Feathers Fantasy Comes True

No, an entire dress made of intricately sewn pheasant feathers isn’t in my possession but Feathers, the fashion store have delivered another fantasy of mine.  Remember that Toga grey patent biker jacket?  Remember it?  I’ve bloody mentioned it enough times.  Remember how I said I was going to beg on my hands and knees for a discount…?  I do believe a fashion god exists somewhere up there as someone heard my pleas and Feathers very kindly offered that discount… I did tell Feathers that this has possibly made my fashion quarter (if there are financial quarters in the year, then I’ll split my fashion purchase year in the same way too…).  The jacket WAS ¬£930 and let’s just say it went down quite significantly…

I’ve been peeing myself with excitement over getting it… and I still can’t quite believe it’s here in my house…


As soon as I picked it up from the Knightsbridge store, I had to put it on just to make sure that it was now mine so the boyf snapped me whilst waiting for a bus.


So joyous am I that I did a Patene-ad hair flick… actually it’s a "I-have-this-effing-amazing-jacket-and-now-I’m-flicking-my-hair-with-joy’ sort of hair flick…


I’m in the process of constructing an outfit for an UN-PC party tonight (politically incorrect…) so I haven’t the time to fully experiment with the jacket but tomorrow, with glorious sunshine, I’m going to be lavishing much attention on it…

    That jacket is amazing! I love how you paired it with the bright colors and more gray.
    And that Pantene hair flick is so completely fitting.

    I do enjoy a good hair flicking pose. And a pink/orange colour combo with a red backdrop. Yup, cute as 3,000 buttons.

    LOVE the jacket! Looks amazing against the bold colours, and the Pantene flick is just glorious! Must learn some bargaining skills from you, how did you do it? I never thought it was possible!

    Right now I’m sitting at my computer pretending I’m you and pretending that I’m wearing it with your vintage Versus by Versace pink, red, and orange dress. In other words, daydreaming heaven.

    that jacket is just too, too, too delicious – the grey in that unexpectedly slick texture is fantastic. it makes me think of seals…! and it looks well good with the pink pvc as well!

    haha… I love the hair flick, I some times do the “You’re worth it” loreal hair flick thing in the mirror when I’m wearing sometime I love, except it doesn’t work with my short frizzy hair, the jacket looks great, I cant wait to see it incorporated into your other outfits.

    am dreaming of such a jacket in black! however, as I couldn’t pay so much I got the pattern for it and will try to make it myself 😛 even if it will be very hard sewing leather. one can try and hope, right? 🙂

    May i ask if you do originally come from mainland china? you look dead funny! you got a lovely jacket but the crash patent style is a no no, unless you want to be standing out of the crowd in a comedian style! please you know better than that. may i recommend you to get rid of your fringe? you have got a round face and a fringe makes me even rounder….you have got a jacket for yourself and maybe you could give yourself a treat, make you look more in style. you reminded me of one chinese girl in my uni… is your top made in china?

    Maybe you are in love?
