It’s a jacket, but it’s so beautiful

This jacket is…

I love florals.  I love florals in the way that makes the Christian Dior Fall 2010 Haute Couture line a permanent memory.  It was colorful, lush, and grand.

When I think of florals in fashion I think of the many interpretations; my mind wanders from the beading of Naeem Khan to the sweet prints of Tracey Reese.  I particularly ENJOY an edgy rendition of florals.  I particularly love a floral presented in a way that makes me say “I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like that before.”

Enter the floral corded moto-jacket from 3.1 Phillip Lim.

from June Ambrose’s Instagram account

I was casually Instagram stalking June Ambrose (as I am known to do over lunch) when I came across this pic.  It was so beautiful I had to take a screen shot.  The colors.  The texture.  The zippers.  The shape.  THIS IS A WORK OF ART!  And did I mention it’s silk.

I have daydreamed about this jacket.  Yes, I daydreamed about wearing this jacket with black leather skinnies with black leather stiletto boots.  And a black pencil skirt and pearls.  And a black maxi dress with orange, mint, lavendar long beaded necklaces.  Funny, I only wear it with black in my daydreams.

Either way, it’s gorgeous.
