So, yes, as the title implies: I found my perfect studded leather jacket. This one’s specifically from Cinq a Sept. I really wish I could get a vegan leather jacket that looks exactly the same, but alas, such is life.
I found it while browsing around the different booths at Coterie Show here in NYC. It’s a plethora of designer offerings for buyers to stock their stores with for the new season. I was meandering around as part of Coterie’s influencer program, so it was a lot less pressure for me.
I got to try on different clothes, see what buyers were getting for 2017, and work with a photographer on site. If you know me, you know I don’t typically work with photographers (here’s why), but I was pleasantly surprised at how flawless this collab was. It literally took us 15 minutes, I got the photos a little bit later in the day and we were good to go. It’s as good as it gets!
That said, I might look into collaborating more with photographers here in the city. It’s a lot quicker than taking the shots myself in some ways, and offers a bit of a different perspective for my Instagram feed.
