A wish came true! - Balenciaga Jacket

A few weeks ago in this post, I was hoping to add another Balenciaga leather jacket to my closet and guess what?  It came true!  I actually managed to find a nice black jacket with black hardware and this time it is in cropped style!

Balenciaga came out with a shorter version of moto jacket in 2010 and 2011 and this new baby of mine is from Fall/Winter collection of 2011.  This jacket is about 2 inches shorter than the original version and in my opinion looks great with dresses and skirts as it hits at the most flattering area of the body.  The all black hardware gives this jacket a more sophisticated look than the usual silver which in my opinion gives a more edgy look.

Well, I think I am contented with my 2 Balenciaga jackets for now and I am just waiting for her to be broken in and gets a bit softer with few wears.. 

On another note, I am being featured with a few other bloggers in Fashion Bloggers Weekly Round-Up on Fashion Treatment, so do check it out if you can spare a minute :)

    1. Hi,Jenee! One of a fellow TPFer bought the jacket and she never used it as it was 1 size bigger for her. She's a serious Balenciaga Jacket collector.. I mean serious! :) I used to be a avid member of TPF but now hardly because of the temptation ;)

  38. What a beautiful jacket - congratulations on adding it to your wardrobe, it's undoubtedly going to be a staple you come back to for years to come! Your City bag is gorges, too; I have to admit I'm a bit envious as I've had the same bag on my wishlist for ages but haven't yet been able to add it to my wardrobe :)
