Sometimes the best purchases are the ones which you wait months to make. Painstakingly saving every last penny, and forgoing those morning coffees and afternoon pick-me ups just to get there a little quicker. I’ve never been one for waiting; three months seems almost a lifetime when patience is not exactly one of my many virtues. But as they say, some things are worth the wait, and the purchases worth waiting for are usually the most rewarding. The item in question? Acne’s mape leather jacket, which hasn’t been far from arm’s reach since fiiiinally pulling the trigger last weekend (with some initial hesitance too, might I add!).

Having owned numerous other leather jackets in the past, none have been quite right – too cropped, too much hardware, too fitted.. I think you get the idea. It’s definitely a splurge, and there’s no denying that I balked at the idea of handing over so much cash in one transaction, yet there’s no regrets here. This is the one, and it comes highly recommended.

Get the look:

    Ohhhh its just so pretty! And I love the trio too, great colour especially against the darker tones of your outfit.

    And it is a little beauty isn’t it? I wouldn’t have paid much attention to it just looking at a stock photo of it on NAP but you sell it well here. And I love this look on you – a little harder edged but really clean lines. Big thumbs up!

    Perfect leather jacket.. definitely worth a splurge! It will probably be your go-to for a very long time. I’m also loving that pale blue purse.. great pop of color!

    I love your look. I agree that that jacket would definitely be worth the wait. I have purchases like this sometimes too. When it is an expensive item that I want so bad, I have to make myself wait until I have the money saved up.

      The waiting is the hardest thing! I think I went and tried this on about three times before I was finally able to buy it haha

    Great purchase! I think you’ll definitely get a lot of wear out of this one. I would get one too… if it wasn’t in the unexplainable-to-the-person-scrutinising-the-creditcard-statement price range!
