There are so many different shades of red. Agreed?
Long story short, when I saw a sample of this jacket in Shanghai at the fabric market I was already hooked. The perfect red color, the texture of the fabric, the fit!
It is so much fun to create your own dream jacket within 30 minutes and have it taylor-made in 24 hours. Amazing!
I decided to go with a black trim and black chain to give it an edgy touch. The sleeves are slightly short and I went with a fitted waist instead of boxy.
I knew from the beginning it would turn out just the way I wanted it to be! And I was right!
It’s been a staple ever since in my wardrobe and I have it on my inspirational clothing rack hanging all the time as a piece of art, which makes me smile whenever I see it.
I picked a pair of light blue skinny jean and a flowy top to lose up the formal character of the jacket.
Flowy tops can add such a playful touch to every outfit. And the wind will be doing the rest to make it an awesome photo shooting!
