LEATHER, RUFFLES & SHOPPING FATE

I talked about the concept of shopping fate a while back and this 3.1 Phillip Lim Ruffle Leather Jacket is a perfect example of the concept. I had seen this jacket months ago on General Hospital and was OBSESSED with finding out who made it. I love the fit/style/ruffle detailing! Lulu was wearing the jacket for about a week on the show at the beginning of Summer and I fell in love with it. I am usually able to track obscure items down 99.9% of the time so I was really disappointed when I couldn't find the jacket back then. Fast forward to a few weeks ago - I was shopping at Holt's and there sat my ruffle leather jacket under a spotlight just waiting for me to find it...shopping fate! It's 3.1 Phillip Lim and is AMAZING! I ended up getting it in a darker brown Cognac-colour and Holt's was having a Gift Card event later that week so i ended up getting it at a discount. Obviously, I'm counting down the days until September arrives and it's 'reasonable' to wear this... I can't wait for Fall!
