You guys, I think I may have just found the perfect faux leather jacket. I’ve been on the hunt for one (or in faux suede) for what seems like forever but could not find one that met my needs for the life of my. I have broad shoulders so fitting jackets can always be a bit of a problem and couple that with the specific look I wanted–buckle waist, fitted, looks good open/closed, not too moto-y, etc., it’s been a bit of a journey.
I thought this similar coveted blogger one would be the perfect one, so I picked it up last year during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but ended up hating it. It was just too big/bulky and I really wanted something that could be paired with jeans, like it this look, or with dresses and skirts as well.
Enter another Who What Wear from Target piece. Target had a 25% off sale during President’s weekend so I snagged this with pretty low expectations but for $30, it was worth a try. And I love it! For me, it really is the perfect faux leather jacket.
One question: since it was shipped to me, the lapels have lost a little of their shape and don’t stay open like in the product photos. Any ideas how to fix this? I tried placing it under a heavy book for a day, which seemed to work, but then they quickly unfolded again when I wore it for a few hours… I’d love any suggestions!
