Ebay Buy: Faux Leather Jacket

Anonymous reader wanted to know more about the jacket I was wearing on my I'm Not Dead post photos. It's another item I got off Ebay, go figure.This time, the experience of shopping online was a bit different ...

This item wasn't like the other items I usually buy on Ebay - jewellery and other cheap shit. You know how I like leather (or even better: fake leather) and I truly fell in love with this jacket when I saw it on 'the bay of evil'. It was perfect and something I could see myself wearing. The only problem was the size. This jacket comes in size XS-S only. Still, the measurements were OK and I thought I could pull it off. Besides, the price was really good and I always buy products cheaper than €22 from international sellers to avoid taxes. So I bought it. For $24.98 (Buy It Now, Free Shipping).

Once the item arrived, I was REALLY disappointed. The jacket was nothing like the one on photos. The description didn't say those are the photos of the actual item, but there was no other description ... so I assumed it should look like the jacket on the photos. So, what were the differences? First of all, the 'fabric' looked different and so did the style of the jacket, the zippers and studs were in bronze and not silver (like I thought they would be) and it was overall worse than I expected.

It's not all bad though. The jacket fits. Kind of. I'll just wear it unzipped most of the times (but I really shouldn't put on any weight). It's really soft and comfortable and I like it. I worked things out with the seller with no problem and it ended well. And what's the point of this long story? Always read the description carefully. If you're in doubt or have any questions - ask the seller. Most of them are really nice and always glad to help. You can see 'this' jacket if you search for 'faux leather zipper decorated jacket'. The price has gone up and now it costs $36.98. I don't know what's that all about.

I'm gonna wear it proudly, 'cause it's extra cool. Why? Baby, you're so tight... XD Oh, and I'm wearing the boots that I told you about in THIS post. They don't stink anymore. Yay!

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  2. Good to know that you solved the "stinky boots case" LOL, unfortunatelly Asian clothes are forbiden for me since I had the "brazillian" shape-> "big this big that", its funny because their XL is our regular Medium size @_@.

    1. Yep, they needed about a month to de-stink. =D I know what you're talking about... My rear end is emphasized in a brazillian way. Not necessarily in a good way.

  3. Looks like your BF worked on taking outfit photos ;)
    I think the jacket looks nice, you totally pull it off! I only wish you wore skinny jeans, you have the figure for them, and you wouldn't get these 'creases' around your knees.
    And I hope you won't be offended by this comment, but your pose on the 1st and the last pic is really funny, like, 'oh crap, I stepped in poop' :)
    I love your hair in a messy bun like that! I saw this hairstyle which I think would look bitcin' on you, if you want to try it:

    1. These jeans are as skinny as they get for me. I wouldn't wear tighter ones, it's just not for me. =) Thanks for the hairstyle recommendation. I will most definitely try it out.

    1. I don't know where they sent it from. I don't really care if it's an imitation or an 'original' product, I only care if I like it or not. Makes things a lot easier. =)

  6. You look fantastic! Love the jacket. It fits pretty good. I'm glad to see a fitted jacket & not an oversized one. Love your whole look. Gorgeous girl!

  7. Gorgeous jacket. The faux leather looks really soft. The detailing is great too. My favorite leather jacket is an old H&M one, the Bomber shaped one, from a few seasons back. Live in that thing.
