This jacket is actually a replacement for a jacket I bought years ago, this Bongo cropped jacket.
I am both short and have a short torso so regular length jackets usually hit me at the top of my thighs and while that's not the worst thing ever, I do like having a jacket that hits me at my hip bone. I think it makes for a longer line and I like how shorter jackets look with dress. Well, I suppose I go to extremes. Long over sized jackets with dresses and shrunken, cropped styles with dresses, none of this middle of the road stuff. (So a mentality that reflects our current political system! Oooooh, burn....)
Anyways, the jacket. The Bongo jacket is older and it has a very juvenile look to it which kinda makes sense seeing as Bongo is a youth brand. Forever 21 is as well but this jacket is a very clean style with out any embellishments that screams "I'm trying to look like a 13 year old when I'm really far past the age group." The F21 jacket is a better fit as well, the Bongo jacket does odd things to the chest area which again, it was made for 13 year olds. I have a few really nice real leather jackets and a few fake leather one and generally the fake doesn't bug me. I might save up for a genuine leather jacket of this style in the feature but it's not really a pressing need and I'm pretty happy with this cheapy.
PS- Ignore the hat. I'm a dork and it was slowly falling off.
