From the moment this jacket hit Isabel’s NYC store, it’s been permanently on my mind. I love a
good motorcycle jacket, but this style, THIS style! is what I’ve needed all along in my life.
And I didn’t even know I needed it beforehand. So why haven’t I bought it you ask….$$$.
No matter how much internal debating or negotiating, I just can’t justify it.

Okay first things first, I LOVE THESE PHOTOS! I can’t even tell you how excited I was to repost
them from Maryam Nassir Zadeh’s site. In my opinion, there’s nothing more appealing as a shopper
than to see my favorite designer’s clothing come to life in street style shots. These close-ups
of her knits and the way the lighting hits this model’s hair is just overall perfection!

but what I don’t love is having too many options. Well maybe it’s not the option of too many options,
I just would’ve liked the option of different prints.
What do you think?

Victorian meets Western inspired looks from her collection. The Old World detailing mixed with
her signature mini skirts seem to transcend time for me, making them quite wearable. I love Aline
Weber’s look in the last photo (already picturing that skirt with an oversized knit and some
