I have been eying this leather jacket ever since Topshop released it but I just never thought I'd actually buy it because it was soooooo expensive. It was priced at USD200plus plus I think.

You see, here in hot hot Manila , you won't really wear much genuine leather garments, so you'd understand my hesitation despite the jacket's awesomeness. But after months of staring at it, I finally bought it.


How? Topshop held a special super sale event for Visa cardholders. Imagine my surprise when I saw this jacket hanging on one of the racks. My boyfriend even heard my loud gasp. He said my eyes got all big and excited haha. We're meant to beeeeeeeeee, the jacket and I. (I don't know about my boyfriend and I hahah) :)

Anyway, photo taken last month after I came from a paid shoot. The hair stylist is amazing. He managed to make a 7-inch tall up-do out of my really really thin and fine hair and was kind enough to help me fix my hair to a more NORMAL hairstyle so that people won't look at me thinking I was Marge Simpson's sister. :) Makeup artist was great too! :)
