Well, that’s because it’s faux-leather. Fake leather or pleather can sometimes be gross and stink up majorly when you walk into a room and everyone gets a whiff of your plasticness. I found a very cute faux-leather jacket from the Canadian Forever21 site. (Ahem, I am not 21 but whatevs, the clothes are great!).
It’s cropped so it’s totally stylin’ for this chilly not-quite-winter weather. It’s got a grainy texture to it so it doesn’t look all obvi fake. It’s also a steal at under $50
No guilt for wearing leather and you’ll look 21. 😉
