Winter look 1: Leather jacket obssession

Since the end of Summer, I have been obsessed with leather jackets and given Q4 is our busiest period at BODIE and FOU, I usually have very little time to think about fashion, let alone having me-time.

I usually prepare a few Winter looks so I don’t have to think about what to wear in the morning as I usually grab the first thing I find in my wardrobe (or the 4th/5th thing that fits me).
Black trousers, white t-shirt, high heels/Isabel Marants boots, red lipstick and leather jacket…and depending if I’m shooting, working from the office or have meeting, a Clare Vivier clutch bag, my La Tropezienne bag or my gold leather shopper bag

It’s basic, simple, rock and it saves me from looking like n’importe quoi
I don’t wear a lot of make-up, I have yet to learn how to blow-dry my hair like a grown-up so the outfit must do the trick.
Here are few leather jackets that I really love…

My sister Elodie (above) is the queen of leather jacket, cropped trousers and stilettos. She will rock you an outfit from the high-street looking like a million $$$$.
I love the look of this girl too here…simple but sexy. 
Which one do you prefer? Did you see a leather jacket that stole your heart recently?

Depuis la fin de l’été, j’ai développé une petite obsession pour les vestes en cuir et vu qu’à partir du 3ème trimestre, avec la nouvelle collection d’hiver et de Noel à préparer pour BODIE and FOU, je vis souvent en apnée, j’ai souvent très peu de temps pour m’occuper de moi.
Le matin, j’attrape les premières fringues sur la pile (ou les 4ème/5ème qui me vont).

Pantalons noirs, t-shirt blanc, talons/bottes Isabel Marant, rouge à lèvres rouge vif et blouson en cuir…et selon que je suis sur un photoshoot, au bureau ou en réunion à l’extérieur, j’accessoirise avec un clutch de Clare Vivier, mon La Tropezienne ou mon gold shopper bag

C’est basic, simple, rock et au moins je ne ressemble pas à n’importe quoi.
Je ne porte pas beaucoup de maquillage, je n’ai toujours pas à appris à me coiffer comme une grande alors il fait au moins que ma tenue assure.

  1. You got me with on this post. I am also OBSESSED with leather jackets, I already own a black leather biker one but it’s not rough & tough enough for the look I’m craving for. I’ll be traveling next week to the US and the main focus of the trip will be hunting down THE ideal leather biker jacket. Maybe Isabel Marant? Or maybe a cheaper version in Urban outfitters? We’ll see. I only hope I get some time in for work which is the “official” reason for my trip!

  2. Sur Pinterest, j’ai trouvé cette phrase “I thought that my life would suddenly improve if I got a leather jacket… And I was literally 100% totally right”.

    J’ai depuis 20 ans un blouson Agnès B. toujours parfait mais devenu un peu juste et que ma fille porte tous les jours maintenant. Je me suis acheté ce printemps un blouson (Kookai) style perfecto qui me sauve mes looks très souvent.
