If I had to choose my favorite item of clothing amongst all the ones that I own, it would be this leather jacket. I am seriously in love with it. I actually just bought it by chance, and I am sooo glad that I did! :) Before my trip to Paris, I was anticipating hot and humid weather since it was supposedly summer over there. So, I left my other leather motorcycle jacket that I’ve had since high school back home in Manila. The minute I arrived in Charles de Gaulle airport, I knew I had made a mistake. It was freezing and I didn’t bring any clothing for cold weather. So on my 2nd day in Paris, I went out and bought a new leather jacket since I knew that I’d have a lot of use for it there anyway. I wore it almost every day except for the latter part of my trip, when it got really hot already.
Given that I live in the tropics, I don’t really have a lot of places to wear this jacket here. But I’ll admit that I do try and wear it whenever there is the slightest opportunity to do so. One of the perks of working in a fashion magazine is that we all dress up to the nines every single day without ever questioning what everyone around us is wearing. Therefore it is normal to show up at our office in a leather jacket, no matter how hot it is outside, as long as it makes your outfit. Lol. Anyway, given the cold weather in Hong Kong, I made the most of the opportunity and wore my jacket most of the time that I was there. :P
