I finally found the perfect leather moto jacket! I got it at one of my favorites- ZARA! I’m not sure if i got super spoiled by walking into the brand new Houston Zara – which happens to be double the size of the one here in Austin, but it was uh-mazing. The guys section was almost as big as the women’s and the kids section had it own legit entrance. *cut to ginormous eye roll* Luckily for me, I was Christmas shopping and didn’t want to spurge on myself but… I couldn’t stop thinking about how much fun there was to be had! I pointed out this jacket to my sister as we were walking out and swooned over how gorgeous it was knowing it would probably never go on sale.

I wanted to go back SO bad before heading back to Austin because I really did not want to wait until the next time I would be in Houston. Time flew and as heartbroken I was, I just couldn’t find the time to fit it back into my schedule. Days later I’m back in Austin and find out they were having a sale–say whaaaaat! Talk about music to my ears! I instantly hop online only to find out the jacket was indeed on sale but sold out. Whatever, a mission was to be accomplished so I set up a shopping date with my bestie to stake out what was left at our Zara. Talk about picked over and unimpressed. Total bummer!!! I mean, like I mentioned earlier, it’s one of my faves and after all that, I was ready to shop!
After making two rounds I end up with a sweater and a line filing out the door. I decided to sneak over to the men’s section and check out with only three people in front of me (now, that’s more like it!) – as I stand there I notice the girl in front of me kicking along her return box in line. I patiently wait my turn only to do a double take as I watch the sales associate pull out her return item, which was THE jacket! Like, really??!! And my size? Girl, staapphhh. If that’s not meant to be then I don’t know what is. Needless to say, I walked out of Zara with a mission accomplished.
Although this beaute is sold out online I narrowed down a few of my faves that won’t break the bank. Check it out…
