I have that loving feeling (for bomber jackets)
Maybe it's all this talk of "Maverick," but I've been in a Top Gun mood lately. I just scored a pair of aviator sunglasses, and now I REALLY WANT a bomber jacket. I saw Rhianna wearing one on TV recently, and it was so cute, the axons of my brain that control irrational purchasing went totally kaput. I NEED IT NOW.
I will wear it with jeans and heels and storm past piddly little boys who stand in my path. I will learn to fly an F-14, then make friends with a sweet fellow named Goose. Then, uh, I will be tragically schooled in the cruel lessons of life. But that's another scene, and I think it involves a jumpsuit.
Anyway, since I live in Florida where the average temperature is 98-point-Satan degrees, I don't invest much in outerwear. And I'm totally fine with fake leather. Let's be honest - this is a trend that doesn't need to stand the test of time.
I've been shopping around. Here are a couple suggestions if you're in an airborne dogfight mood like me:
Forever 21 Chevonne faux leather jacket, $39.80
Charlotte Russe dark brown bomber jacket, $29.99
Target Xhilaration quilted bomber jacket, $29.99
My favorite!! Burlington Coat Factory faux leather bomber with metallic studs, $39.99
