'I Like My Sugar With Coffee And Cream...'

That title is a song lyric, well, more a rap lyric haha I think it is Run DMC but I've forgotten...anyway, I just thought of it when I put on this giant cocoon-y dream of a leather jacket because along with the rest of my outfit, it is very nude/coffee/creamy in colour! Funny what an outfit can inspire!

These trousers are A-MAZING, they are part of the Gap Premium Black Pant Collection, I'm not sure if you've heard of this but they've had a lot of press coverage-there was a full page spread in Grazia a couple of weeks ago. Basically Gap have designed a selection of 'essential' black pants, as we well know girls, it's hard enough to find decent fitting jeans, let alone smart trousers, and since the trend for AW 2010 seems to be leaning toward minimal, smart chic, I thought these would be a good investment. The style I bought is the relaxed crop, which look amazing with heels or flats and are super comfy, but they also do a slim straight, a slim crop, a curvy flare, and a few others-definitely something for everyone!

The jacket is vintage, I bought it in a charity shop years ago for a tenner, it is fully lined leather with a drop shoulder and patch pockets, I think I am going to venture to the haberdashery and buy some shearling fabric and make a collar and cuff ends for it to spin it for AW. I love the aviator jackets around at the moment but I also like the shape of this-as I usuallly wear a lot of slim fitting bottom halves, trousers, skinny jeans etc, something like this is great to balance the proportions.
