Balenciaga Moto Jacket

As I confessed in a few posts ago, I am a huge fan of leather and when we talk about leather, Balenciaga is the 'King' in my opinion.

This Balenciaga jacket is such a beauty! Let me tell you, the leather is thick yet buttery soft and since it is not exactly new anymore and has been broken in, this makes it more divine. The wrinkling adds more character to it, looking so well loved. I have made many outrages purchases that I later regret  in my lifetime, be it  Chanel bags or fancy dresses I hardly used but  buying this jacket is NOT one of them! If I could I would sell most of my bags and buy 2 more of this jacket! Hope Captain is reading this post, wink! wink! 

A beauty like this doesn't need much to dress with; a simple tank, good old Levi's and I am good to go!

  6. Love the jacket! I love leather jackets. These days, I love anything leather, lol. The Balenciaga moto jacket is definitely one of the best. It is one of those purchases that i have been contemplating about for months, since i can only get one, i am having trouble deciding on the color.

    1. I am trying to get another one too, in darker color like darkerest of blue or grey. I think when it comes to color the basic classic ones are best if we are talking about having just one which is a bummer, right? ;) At least you like in a 4 seasons place, me what do I do with them in Dubai?! But still, I can't help it ;) Good luck deciding!

  8. Wow, that jacket is a stunner! The colour is beautiful and you can see even in these photos how high quality the leather is. I definitely need to splurge myself on one of these.

  41. Your jacket it super gorgeous! I love the style and that you describe it as buttery soft. I used to have a leather jacket that I got rid of because I just couldn't move around in it. Maybe the Captain will get you another soon :)

  42. I love your balenciaga jacket. I've always wanted one. It's absolutely gorgeous and definitely a holy grail of mine. Which size do you wear? I should really try on the size and see how it fits on my body.

    1. M, this jacket is in 38 (FR). Even if I could fit in 36, I went with 38 because of my muscular/chunky biceps. 36 would look tapered on the body but a bit too snug on the arms. FYI, I am normally a size 2/4 US 8 UK. Hope this info helps :)

  43. LOVE your jacket!! It looks STUNNING on you!!! And I have the same heels and purse!! FABULOUS!!! :)

  44. A leather jacket is certainly a timeless piece and when you find the right one, it's definitely a keeper. Especially because the more you wear them, the better they seem to look. Love this Balenciaga one, the color is just gorgeous, and I don't blame for wanting another one!

    I'm new to this blog, but I have enjoyed reading it, I especially love your recipes and your gorgeous pictures from the trips. And also because Dubai it's a place that my husband I always want to visit one day in our lives!
