Can’t you tell how obsessed I am with my AllSaints leather jacket?
I wear it with jeans and Tshirt, with dresses, and with jumpsuits here. It is so easy to just basically wear anything as a base outfit and put on this leather jacket. Its leather is buttery soft yet very durable and resistant to any scratchings, well, at least from my fingernails considering how clumsy I am in taking care of things. On the Nordstrom website, it does fit cropped on the model, and it is just slightly cropped on me. I’m 5ft5 and no way considering ‘petite.’ Many people think I am, but I don’t like how petite clothing fit on me. Normally, I’m a 0-2 or XS-S in most tops and dresses. Bust after trying on all of the AllSaints leather jacket sizes from 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8 at the Nordstrom, I found 6 fit me the most comfortable and best! Plus I like some room for the winter time in case I need to layer a thick sweater underneath. I’m not too familiar with AllSaints sizes, but I do know that their jackets do run small. Make sure you give them a proper try at the store or read reviews carefully before buying anything, investment, as I’d like to call it. So hope these help with all of your sizing decision!
I bought these silk (my favorite type of fabric to wear!) jumpsuits at Nordstrom Rack years ago from the brand called, Amanda Uprichard. They are a bit higher end, but I got mine on sale for no more than $50. They were size 6 and a bit big on me, but silk fabric was so forgiving and felt great, especially in the summertime. If you click through some of my old blog post last year or so, you’d find other ways of me styling these same jumpsuits.
Pro shopping tips: I bought this AllSaints leather jacket at Nordstrom even though there is a huge AllSaints store just a few blocks away in downtown Seattle. Nordstrom does reward notes (you get $20 back every $1000 you spend or something like that!) and does have a very good customer service. Last month, I had to end up returning my YSL tote since the stitching at one of the straps came loose. I had a blog post styling/wearing it here. Nordstrom gladly accepted the faulty item without even asking anything and regardless of the fact that I bought it months ago, so that is what I mean by ‘good’ customer service. Nordstrom is doing triple point reward at the moment, so maybe it’s time to make a visit?!
I am wearing all Bomalife 925 sterling silver jewelry, gifted by the CEO herself (thanks, Suzanne!). This is my second collab. with them since they did come out with a ton of new styles this March expanding from sterling silver to now including vermeil gold pieces (sterling silver coated in gold). My picks for this month were the dot crawler earrings (worn vertically here in this post) and the matching dot ring (not worn here). I had to have my finger sizing actually measured at a jewelry store at the U Village, since none of the Youtube videos I watched explained how to measure-it-yourself well enough. I wear the dot ring (size 6) in my middle finger every day ever since. One thing that I’m concerned with is that I wash my hands with antibacterial soaps like 10 times a day due to my lab job. Hopefully, this piece of silver won’t go tarnished on my any time soon since I do love wearing minimal jewelry on the daily basis.
