Vintage Finds That are Fall Necessities: The "Letter" Jacket Bomber









Want one? Try Etsy (look for letter jackets!) or there are some good repro options available like this one from Zara. They key is to get an oversized fit - like your hot boyfriend who plays varsity baseball gave you his to wear around school so everyone knows you're his girl.

Here I paired it with another awesome vintage find (a linen jumpsuit from madewell, scored during the same succesful thrifting trip!)

To complete the look I did absolutely nothing to my hair. I washed it three times with my mom's Viviscal Shampoo, then used the Ouai Treatment Mask, which I left on for a 45 minute bath. When I got out I brushed it with my mom's Tangle Teaser. I did sit in a nice steamy kitchen for a while waiting for my stepdad to make corn on the cob, so that may have helped. Then I went to bed. I do not understand this alchemical magic that has suddenly made my waves look how I actually want them to, but I am complaining and I really like it.

Anyways, I think I captured the look, which is like "Ya, I may be 33 but I am just as cool/cooler than I was in high school." Or I am wearing this ironically, because I was a total nerd in highschool but now I am hella ironic and hip. Hard to tell! And that's half the fun (I am neither, I just loved the Breakfast Club, and the music video for Colors by Halsey)
