California’s finally dipped into cold territory (by our standards I guess), which means I can finally enjoy some cozy layering and some fun outerwear. At least, there was one new piece I knew I had to add to my closet: The BLANKNYC Embroidered Moto Jacket in As You Wish. I saw this beauty when I was writing an editorial for Denimology back in October! It’s rare I see something and know I need it right then and there…normally I’ll step away from the computer for a bit and if whatever item I was oogling is still in my head the next day, I might come back and grab it. However, this amazing piece just screamed my name! Unfortunately, when I went to purchase it, it was out of stock almost everywhere already. I lucked out and scored it at Nordstrom! It’s been one of my favorite purchases I’ve ever made, and it’s so fun to throw on over just about any outfit for some added edge! Photos just do not do it justice…it looks far more expensive than it is, and BLANKNYC did an incredible job with gorgeous floral embroidery, studs and zipper detailing. The vegan leather feels real, too! I read a ton of reviews before I purchased it because I know BLANKNYC sometimes runs snug. Based on those reviews, I sized up and got a medium so I could layer sweaters underneath it, and I am so glad I did! So if you are as enamored as I am, I would suggest doing so as well.
For this shoot, I was focusing on a new review for Denimology for PRINCIPLE Denim Innovators. These grey cigarette skinnies are so comfy! Grey is a great fall shade as well. I’m also carrying my new favorite crossbody bag from the last several months, the Marc by Marc Jacobs New Q Natasha in Faded Aluminum (it’s also sold out everywhere and was yet another one of my eBay scores). We headed out to beautiful Pismo Beach for the shoot to shake things up a bit. I’ve been absolutely loving it out there lately. The sunsets are something else!
The BLANKNYC Embroidered Vegan Leather Jacket keeps selling out, so I’ll provide several purchase links. If you aren’t seeing your size, keep checking back! Every now and then I see an item from BLANKNYC sell out so fast over and over that they keep it in stock for longer than they do with most items.
Shop it at Nordstrom here, Revolve here, and direct from the brand here. I also saw it backordered at Bloomingdales a few times but I’m not sure if they are restocking this time. Just in case, you can check back here.
