paper dolls can't dance

April 28, 2009

Mike & Chris is one of my favorite labels for jackets - well, a big hit or miss for me. I'm not sure what is true about the rumors circulating (keep hearing different stories), but if anyone has a clear depiction on the label, please share!

Anyways, at the warehouse sale this previous weekend I saw racks and racks of Mike & Chris. Heaven. On. Earth. I'm not really into cropped jackets, but this one sort of spoke to me behind a few nylon ones. Low and behold, I kinda fell in love after trying it on. What I especially love are these massive collars that can be played up or down - versatility, yay.

The dress is from American Apparel, and I'm also wearing Seychelles boots.

Anyone going to Unique LA this weekend?

  1. That jacket is perfection! I also have a bit of a love/hate relationship with jackets, I think it's hard to find one that doesn't swallow up an outfit, and this one balances style and function- super duper!


    P.S. Care to exchange links?

  2. Oh Loooove the jacket. Im wish we had sample sales in Glasgow.... poo
