Blank NYC Faux Leather Jacket

I'm normally not a pink girl, but fell in love with this jacket once I put it on. I love the edgy silhouette mixed with the feminine blush color and the fit is near perfect! I tried on both the black and pink (see below) and was literally torn between the two since black is versatile and can be worn all year round. At the same time, I already have a couple of similar black moto jackets and thought I could use one in a different color and it was fun to go out of my comfort zone. To my surprise, I have been wearing this jacket a lot to dinners and out during the weekends since it matches a lot of my lighter color tops and jeans. 
The jacket does have shoulder pads and I normally avoid anything with that because I have broad shoulders. But I don't mind it in this instance since the jacket is nicely fitted and kind of gives the illusion of a smaller waist and an hourglass figure. There is bunching in the elbow area so the sleeves could be a half inch to an inch shorter for me. This jacket is definitely a great value (under $100!) since it's fully lined, with zipper details and lots of top stitching. All those little details take a lot of work so I'm really impressed by the quality! See Jean of Extrapetite's review in the black version & this post on how she styled it with a maxi dress.

On another note, this was a dress I purchased for my cousin's graduation in San Diego, but I ended up not wearing it because it was so cold and rainy. I'm wearing 3" heels with the dress and it's still dragging on the floor. It probably needed to be shortened 2-3", but I really didn't feel like doing the alterations since it's a chiffon fabric and the hem is at a bias and I can see that fabric stretching out and the hem bubbling and causing me issues. Even though I loved this dress and so did my bf, I ended up returning this since I don't see any future occasions to wear this to.
