One Jacket. Two Ways.

by - 6:09 PM

 Hello everyone!

Today I will tell you a story about a jacket. A jacket that came to my life more than ten years ago. A jacket that I wore no more than  five times during that period of ten years.

My dad was a sailor, so he worked on a tanker and he was gone for 6-9 months and then he would come home for 6 months or less. I always thought that job is very hard and you have to give up a lot of things.  I always missed my dad, and he missed us. One of his ways showing us that he thinks of us during the time he was gone is that he would bring us lot of souvenirs from places he was. That's why I have a lot of  pyramids from Egypt, key chains from Africa and lot of other things from all around the world. But when ever he was in USA he would bought us clothes. In USA it was more affordable than in Croatia and there were more choices. So 12 years ago he bought my sister and me two identical jackets (he always bought us the same things  despite my sister is 3 years younger than me).  Jackets were black leather on the outside, but with leopard fur from the inside. Jacket was too big for me, not just in size, but I thought it was too chunky.  Also winters in Zadar are warm, so I never needed such a warm jacket. All in all, totallynot my cup of tea.






 During the following years it stayed in my closet, to valuable to get rid of it, and never good enough to wear it. I tried to  wear it from time to time, styled it in my own way, but it was never good enough for the long term.  But this year things have changed. When I came home from my New Years trip in Kraków I searched something in my closet and I found this jacket. And I fell in love with it like I never seen it before. I loved how it looked on me, I loved it style, I loved it was black leather with touch of leopard print fur, and I loved it can be worn both ways. So you have one piece of clothing, but you actually have two jackets. Because you just need to turn it around and you have completely new look. So so cool. It became my go to jacket and I love it. I'm so sad I haven't started to wear it before, because winter is almost over and I don't want to stop wearing it.
