A jacket is a mainstay in my closet. The right jacket can make a simple outfit look amazing without much effort. My trick to looking effortlessly cool is through a moto jacket. Moto's are the perfect layering piece. I do not know one item of clothing that I own that does not look great when I wear it with a moto. Moto's in my opinion are enhancers, they just give an outfit the right amount of oomph. I have a good amount of moto's in a variety of colors, but one color always alluded me- RED. Red is not my favorite color, but the color has been a big part of my life. My mom loves the color red, and she would wear it any chance she got. As a plus size girl being raised by a plus size mom, it was amazing to see her wear bold color. My mom didn't shy away from most colors, and I definitely inherited that from her.
So back to the hunt. For about a year or so, I have been wanting a red moto. Trend forecasts from the runway shows had lots of crimson jackets in the form of bombers and embellished moto's. Seeing the boldness of the jacket really spoke to me. I wanted to strut around the streets of NY grabbing everyone's attention...lol. I love a great statement maker, and I knew when I found the right moto, it will speak volumes.
While casually checking out Fullbeauty's website for jackets, I came across a red jacket. Not burgandy, not a quilted jacket, but a red suede moto!!! Wait, there's more. It's REAL SUEDE!!!! Finding real leather items or suede are rare in plus, so when I see a great item I get it. This jacket is from the Studio Untold Collection. I went with a size 20, and it fit perfectly. It's cropped, but I still have room to layer with a chunky sweater when the temps drop. After adding this amazing jacket to my cart, I decided to check out what other goodies Fullbeauty had to offer. One of the latest brands added to their site is Ellos, a Swedish brand now stateside. I was in need of a new pair of trousers, and these Ankle Zip Pocket pants were a great addition to my closet. If you are looking for great items to mix into your current work wardrobe, give this brand a try. To finish off my look, I went with my Zara tie up flats (I love being tied up...lol), and my oldie but goodie clutch from Banana Republic.
I received so many compliments on my jacket. It's not every day models ask me can they touch my jacket to feel how smooth it is, so I consider this a win. I got a chance to strut around NYC in a bold moto, just feeling ever so confident.The event I attended was amazing, and stay tuned to the blog because I have tons of pictures (this view alone is A1) from that night. Trust me, you will swoon. Muah!!
