I Splurged on a Leather Jacket! comments

Wendy Mihm | Tuesday November 30, 2010

I have not had a leather jacket in five years.

The last one I had, I retired because it had that weird, plastic-y, cheap-leather-that-did-not-age-well look.  It was about 8 years old and it was time for it to go anyway.

Since then, I have looked every season to find a new one, to no avail.  They were all either too expensive or too cheap looking or too 18-year-oldish or too Harley-Davidson-ish.

But then the September 2010 Nordstrom catalog arrived and this gorgeous thing practically jumped off the page and hollered my name!

The price was just about what I had planned to spend, too.  Ok, maybe a little more.  So I tossed some fish crackers into baggies, my kids into the car and headed for a very rare excursion to Nordstrom.  When I touched the leather, it was like butta, I tell you, BUTTA!  I figured that I wear a leather jacket so often, and for so many years, that it was worth the expense.  With a 4-year old and a toddler in tow, I had no time for deliberation…
The verdict?  SPLURGE!
What do you think?  Did I do the right thing?
