less tom cruise and eyeliner and more flowy, sleek and beautiful

i had a leather jacket once...it was niiiiiiice.  it was one of those 'bomber' style jackets from the early 90's (completely inspired by top gun, which is strange because now all things tom cruise freak me out).  anyway it was big, bulky and had a huge drool stain on the right shoulder from using it as a pillow on a road trip.  i have nasty senior pictures to prove it, which i am not prepared to show you...not that baby bangs and angry eyeliner aren't stunning....

i haven't thought much of the leather jacket since then...i think there may have been scarring.  however, i do believe i have been healed through the magic of allsaints' leather jackets.  never did i think that leather could be flowy, fitted, soft and perfectly feminine until now...

or perhaps sleek, stylish and just the right amount of tough girl?

actually, i can't choose...i think that part of the healing process may involve one of each?  the allsaints' women's leather jacket collection has me thinking...it's all about out with the old and in with the new right?

Gotta love that tough girl chic! I have always wanted a leather jacket, but have also been scarred by puffy bombers of the past. And cropped leather jackets. I don't know why, but they just rub me the wrong way. These look perfect though. I love the beige sleek jacket with the high color. Outstanding!

P.S. Baby bangs and angry eyeliner were so in. Don't be ashamed! Embrace that angsty teenage you!

love the look of these jackets - i'm a sucker for a ruffle. but they do look like fabric - and if they were fabric they would be just as nice and less cruel. ii'm also a sucker for living "animal-friendly" - and appreciate when animal products are not used.

I just got a red leather jacket this winter and love it! I'm thinking that white one is something that needs to be in my closet!

tom cruise is freaky. glad you married mr. french (real pilot) instead of mr. cruise (real crazy)...the next to last is my favorite...although i'd have to get some lessons in cool before i could pull it off.

I'm obsessed! I've been wanting one for so long. Go for a feminine one if you decide to take the jump!

this is one of the best blogs i have ever gone through. great variety of jackets for women. i really liked the concept of introducing some very pretty jackets for females. i have always seen that females jackets are not very fashionable or up to date but now by seeing these jackets i should start changing my thoughts. really nice outfits. loved them all :)
