Someone please talk me out of buying this leather jacket

or don’t.

I finished My Mad Fat Diary yesterday and I loooooved it like a person. I loved it so much. So much that you need to stop reading this post and watch it immediately.

Now that you’re back, wipe away the tears and tell me that you don’t want me to buy the leather jacket that Rae sports through the entire first series.

I found it on Asos and I want it sooooo hard.


I can’t decide if it would make me look/feel like a huffalump and then there’s the other thing. I’m adamantly anti-fur and try not to buy leather when I can help it, so would buying the perfect looking leather jacket make me feel like an asshole?

Ohhhhh, but I’d be such a cool asshole. I just dont’ know. Look at these beauties! How can I not want to look like this? Help me Obi Wan. You’re my only hope.

  • ha! I was also convinced to buy this from ASOS due to Rae’s sheer awesomeness. There’s a 10% off coupon floating around the internet…and returns are free! It’s at least worth a try. My fingers are crossed that it’s as awesome on me as it is on Rae.

    Oooohhh! YOu have to tell me what you think. I’m still waiting for pay day!
    I’m imagining it to look brilliant on you and fit perfectly.
    Then I’ll buy one and we can totally be a gang of cute.

  • It just came! It’s a super lovely jacket, but the sleeves are just a bit too long and baggy (I’m short!) for me to feel good about the price tag. It’s going back to ASOS, but I’m glad I gave it a shot!

    Damn! I was worried about that too. I’m only 5’4. The search continues!

  • Hey! That’s me up there! Thanks for the inclusion. I say go for it a faux leather jacket never hurt anybody!


  • lateshoes

    Inez, you are gorgeous and have such lovely style! And you’re right. I’ve been looking at faux options. They’re cheaper as well, which is always a plus.

    I did the same thing! I just finished the show and loved it beyond limits. And then I bought the leather jacket. Can’t wait till it gets here.

    What did you think when you got it? Did it look fab?
    I’m still worried that the arms will be waaaay too long for me. Sigh. The dream continues.
