When I Saw Nora’s New Motorcycle Jacket …

Remember when Harry met Sally? The scene when the old Lady says to the waitress “I’ll have what she’s having!”? Well, when Nora wore her new motorcycle jacket the first time on her blog Jacket Society “I’ll have to have what she’s having” was my first reaction. Thus, when the jacket went on sale, I couldn’t help but buy it.

… I Had to Have What She Is Having

It’s the second time that I fell in love with a find by a fellow blogger. Last time, it were these awesome distressed boyfriend jeans that Glenda Harrison from So What to Twenty found. You can find an example hor I wore these distressed jeans in my post on Why Alaskans book their vacation in October.

How Not to Look Like Her in the Same Attire

Turning fashion into style makes having the same piece no problem. One thing that is so fascinating about fashion and style is that the same piece – in this case the jacket – looks so different just depending on the style of the wearer. You can find more tips on what to do when your friend has the same clothes in the post at this link.
