They say you should dress to impress. Or dress how you feel. Or how you want to feel. Something like that.
I bought a leather jacket this summer at Nordstrom's annual sale and although it's not black or studded, there's something about it that makes me feel tough, like I can take on anything.
Lately I've been needing the leather jacket a lot. To be honest it's a lot of late nights and early mornings as busyness at the day job and the night job (that's the handmade shop people -- don't be thinking dirty) ramp up.
But with the jacket, I'm telling myself that I am tough.
I think the leopard shoes give me a little more edge, too. And I need that edge.
