LEATHER DILEMA

One of the first things I knew I wanted to get with my AWESOME Net-a-Porter prize was a smokin hot leather jacket... As soon as I saw the Burberry quilted beauty I fell HARD for it. Alas it wasn't to be - production issues mean it's not going to be re-stocked in a size 10. Gutted doesn't even begin cover it...

However, I'd like to think I've moved on from my grief and I feel ready to love again...

But I need your help. I can't decide between these two contenders:





First up we have the classic style of the ACNE Rita leather biker jacket - the aviator version was seen everywhere this winter (Cheryl Cole and Alexa Chung being two of its biggest fans) and for SS11 ACNE have re-released it sans shearling collar.

You can't really beat a classic biker style can you? The whole point about an expensive leather jacket is that it'll last forever, and I can't ever imagine not digging this look.

HOWEVER....





Consider, if you will, contender number two - Zadig and Voltaire perfia leather jacket with awesome studded collar and removable sleeves... sigh! Sold out on the website but I have it on reserve.

I love that this is a bit different, and the studded collar is totally hot to trot, no?

HELP! What one do you like better??

PS only one week to go to VOTE FOR ME to win the internship at ELLEuk.com. Yet again I'ma plead for your votes sistas... I hate myself a little bit every time I ask people to vote for me but I'ma still do it cos THAT'S HOW MUCH I WANT IT. Read my application and if you like it click the little Pick Me link.


Over and out.

I love the second one! Especially the fact you take the sleeves off so in the summer you can rock it with a summery dress, it would look amazing :):)

After seeing the Acne jacket in brown, I fell in love. Well until I scrolled down and saw that studded beauty! They're both gorgeous x

Well done you lucky girl that is beyond amazing !!! I love the second one, I'm sold on the studs plus the ance style is too copied there are heaps on the high street. The second one is just lush, the cut and studs give it that wow factor :)

eeeek hello new faces, thanks for commenting! Looks like the second studded one is the winner - but I have to say I'm still finding it really hard to decide! I like that the ACNE one is such a classic staple, and that's ideally how I'd like to spend the money from the prize... BUT I can't deny that I'm still seduced by those studs! ARGH!!! This is a nightmare!

Hannah, if you scroll through my posts from December you'll see some of the other things I've bought already - not a huge amount left now - next up is a Burberry trench and maybe some shoes/boots.

Thanks for your comment Lydia but as part of my prize I actually bought the Alexander Wang Rocco in sage - I did a post about it a week or so ago!

I'd go for the Acne Rita (I reaaally want that myself) - Studs are great, but your jacket will be far more versatile without them, and a little bit classier.

Kirsty said...

Thanks guys! Asha, I think you might be right. I love the studded one too, but I know I will always and forever love the biker jacket style...

I've ordered the ACNE one and I'm picking it up tomorrow. Gonna try it on and if I like it I'll keep it and if not I'll get the other one sent out.

By the way, if anyone is on Net a Porter and sees anything they like, feel free to gimme a shout either by email or in my formspring. I never thought I'd say this but after nearly two months of trawling the site I'm beginning to feel a little lethargic and need a hand picking awesome things for the remaining £1000!

So if you see anything lemme know ken?
