After not being clothes shopping for a while, I’ve been doing a lot of catching up!!
You may have seen my recent video about the pretty big shop I did in Cow. Well, I went back again last weekend and luckily I didn’t spend as much, but I did find a few more amazing pieces.
One of those things was this insane vintage tasselled jacket.
It’s black and cropped in a funky way. There’s tassels around the front, back and down the sleeves. It’s honestly the jacket of my dreams, ahhh!!
The tag says it’s a size 16 so I was a bit worried it would be too big. I tried it on in the shop just to make sure and it’s not a bad fit at all!! I’d say it fits me like a size 12 jacket would, so I’m guessing it’s just how the sizes have changed over the years. And also the fact that I think it’s American so of course the sizing is different to the UK’s.
Anyway, yeah it has a pretty good fit and gives me such 70s vibes!! It’s helped me rediscover my tan flares that I haven’t been able to wear for a while, because when i got my new coat, the colours were too similar and i just felt beige when I wore them together. Which isn’t how I like to feel, hah.
If it hadn’t of been so cold these last few months I could’ve thrown on another jacket, or not worn one at all, but that was never going to happen. So they’ve just been hanging in my wardrobe looking sad.
Buuuuuuut as soon as i got this jacket home I just knew it would look great paired with these trousers, and what do you know, of course I was right (joking, i’m not that in love with myself haha).
So I’m over the moon about that!! But obviously I’m not wearing those this time. I thought I’d try the tassels with this silver metallic dress.
If I may say so myself, it’s a look! I always struggle with this dress because I’m never sure how I feel about how it hugs my body. This jacket gives it a really nice edge though so it takes the focus away from that.
It’s one of those things that I didn’t know I needed until now.
Strangely the tassels makes me feel fierce. I actually want to wear this jacket every day. If I could, I would. I’m just not sure it’d be suitable for work. Plus, my dog has tried to bite the tassels a few times already so i’ve definitely got to be wise about when i choose to throw it on, hah!
