Ok, I have to admit: I tend to wear things ad nauseam until a) they’re worn out or b) I find a new item to obsess over. I do this despite a very robust closet that I promise is comprised of more than shredded short shorts and a little motorcycle jacket.

I swore that I would stay away from ripped paraphernalia, but alas I gave in when I saw this little treasure on sale at H&M. It was too awesome to pass up. Oh! and I found this sweet DKNY grommet bucket  bag in my Mom’s closet. I think it’s from the late 80’s, early 90’s.

P.S. If you see a hooded stranger in Levis 501’s and a black motorcycle jacket, please say hello…

    This combo suit you so well, you shouldn’t stop wearing it 😉

    This outfit looks great! I really like that cut out tee with the leather jacket and that dkny bag looks really interesting too 🙂

    Thanks Nora!
    Haha, yeah I remember my Mom carrying that bag around when I was 5 or 6. I just recently rediscovered it sitting in the back of her closet…you never know what you can find!
