I’ve finally found THE ONE!

Friday, 16th Jul 2010

I’ve been in search of a denim jacket for some time. Since before the beginning of the ‘Summer’. But for some reason, I have had absolutely no luck. Well actually, I think I have discovered the reason. I have worked out that I haven’t found one because I don’t actually like denim jackets.

Now, I love denim. I have more jeans and jeggings and shorts than can comfortably fit into my wardrobe. So it isn’t the fabric I have a problem with. This just really leaves the style. And if I think back, to all the denim jackets I’ve had over the years, I don’t think I ever really LOVED them as I should. I never really felt like myself in them, they always lacked the glamour that I crave, and they felt like they belonged to someone else. Wow, this is like a new discovery of self-knowledge! Obviously, my tongue is in my cheek, but within the realms of my obsession with clothes, this is pretty serious stuff.

So the fact that I now know that I don’t like denim jackets did not distract me from my quest to find Ree’s perfect denim jacket. Oh no. I don’t give up at the first hurdle, even if it is, in a fashion terms, a fairly major hurdle. And, guess what? I’ve found one. I’m 35 and I can finally stand up and say that I have found MY perfect denim jacket!!This is a fireworks moment.
And here it is, with me in it:

Jacket, Marc by Marc Jacobs, on sale, £98, The Outnet
Basic Vest, Topshop
Skirt, Topshop, on sale £10
Shoeboots, Dorothy Perkins, on sale, £7

And here it is without me, for some of the finer details:

I love it. I have finally found the one!
