VINTAGE BIKER JACKET

17 Dec

I FOUND THIS LOVELY VINTAGE BIKER JACKET YEARS AGO FROM FLEA MARKET. I ACTUALLY  HATED THE CHOKING UPRIGHT COLLAR OF IT BUT TOTALLY LOVED THE “HAS BEEN AROUND” LOOK AND THE QUILTED PARTS OF IT. I NEVER USED IT, SINCE IT WASN´T EXACTLY PERFECT.

SINCE IT HAD BEEN WONDERING IN MY CLOSET FOR SO LONG,  I THOUGHT IT NEEDS TO GET A LIFE ….I DECIDED TO GET MY JACKET PIMPED AT  THIS LOVELY LEATHER BOUTIQUE CALLED BIGARRE….I WAS TOO EXITED TO GET IT DONE, SO FORGOT OF COURSE TO TAKE A BEFORE PICTURE OF IT…THE OWNER OF BIGARRE BOUTIQUE, PIRJO SAVOLAINEN IS SUPER , SHE FULFILLED ALL MY WISHES: THE COLLAR WAS REMOVED, THE NECKLINE WAS WIDENED AND THE ORIGINAL ZIPPER WAS SHORTENED. AND HERE IT IS, DEAR VINTAGE BIKER JACKET WITH A NEW LIFE. ♥ I LOVE IT.

BOUTIQUE BIGARRE IS LOCATED RIGHT IN THE CITY CENTER OF HELSINKI. THEY ARE PURE PROFESSIONALS IN DESIGNING, MODIFYING AND REPAIRING OF LEATHER AND FUR GARMENTS. HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR EVERYONE.

    Hi Katja! Your outfit is so cool! the biker jacket s outstanding, but i also like your military pants and eyeglasses. It would be great if you could tell me what brands are you wearing for the whole outfit 🙂

    Hi Marta:)

    Thank you 🙂 My eyeglasses are vintage and the brand of those is unknown since the text has faded away 😦 but my olive green lowky pants are from Zara, sweater from Gina Tricot and jewellery from H&M.

    Thank you for your nice comments 🙂

    Merry Christmas,
    Katja
