No Parking.

by Jamila Pierre


I had been peeping a jacket identical to this one for years. I saw it pop up in straight sizes, on those somewhat sketchy online boutique websites, and I couldn't believe two things:

  1. That the design gods knew me so well and knew I'd love this jacket to infinity and beyond.
  2. That those same Godly sons of bitches didn't make it in my damn size.

For years I pined over this jacket, even considered making one of my own, but then there it was, a few years later...just as fabulous as ever. Oh, and it was in PLUS!

I really didn't hesitate to not only buy it in black....but I bought this bad muthah shutcho mouth, in the most amazing OxBlood. My world was made.

I also had my eyes on these super interesting jean/pants. It was a unique take on the black jean and I can rarely pass on an opportunity to acquire unique is LIFE!!! 

During the whole Black Friday hubub, I almost snagged these (along with a few other pairs of jeans from Fashion to figure) but I couldn't pull the trigger. My mother came to my home baring gifts and it was then, the radiant glow when I opened said gift, was like a ray of light shooting from out of a treasure chest full of the most precious of gems and gold.

I died a thousand deaths. 

I decided that these bottoms would go swimmingly with my new BOSS AF jacket, and there was no other way to top the look off, than to pair it all with these sparkly slip-ons of my dreams. 

Can we also take a moment to enjoy the back of this's totes amaze when your back looks as good as your front.
