To Buy? Leather Jacket

Do I buy the cute leather jacket from Zara or not? Hmm...

Pros
Cute
Fits well
$200, which isn't too bad for real leather

Cons
Smells strongly of Whiskas Seafood Medley Cat Treats
$200, which is a lot
Potential to turn me into a bad ass

I'm so tempted. Darn!

I'm a blog lurker, but I had to come out of hiding for this -- no Zara! The leather will be bad/ stiff/ smelly and not age well, the stitching will come undone, it will last MAYBE a year and then be completely dead. Save for quality!

Ha! I am also a lurker. Even worse, a lurker who thinks they probably live in your neighborhood (so many familiar references.) I had to respond because I'm also coveting a leather biker jacket right now! Although the one I'm looking is a bit pricier. So, my first instinct was that this is a great deal for a timeless classic. My second instinct (after reading anonymous) is quality cannot be overlooked. Either that, or I'm just trying to talk myself into my own jacket...

Is it more disturbing that you can buy cat treats from Amazon or that the potential jacket smells like them? My vote for the first. :)

I think that if you're looking for a leather biker-style jacket, for $200 you could probably hit up an actual leather specialty store and get something that doesn't smell like cat treats and that will age really well...

I say buy it, but reserve it for wearing when near ocean water, thusly being able to blame actual fish for faux-fish cat treat smell.

And I can't help but mention that the word verification for my comment is 'occeam'- eerily close to ocean. Weird.

I would definitely put bad-ass potential on the pro not the con list!

I didn't think it smelled that bad. If you are still thinking about it, you should buy it. Hit it with some febreeze. It goes with the tough girl persona :-)
