Imperial X-Mas

Now that Patrick and I have seen the latest Star Wars film, I felt I could now properly enjoy and appreciate all of the items from The Force Awakens that are on view at Star Wars Launch Bay and inside the various shops at Disneyland more. So, I convinced Patrick to take a long lunch break and we went to the park for lunch.

Yeah, I broke down and bought one of the Star Wars “ugly” Christmas sweaters that have been floating around. This one I shockingly bought at Target, against better judgement, but I love it to no end.

This jacket is one of my favorites, and I’m shocked its taken this long for it to appear on the blog. It’s one of my prized pieces and I’ve had it for several years, however one of those years it spent switching between the back porch and garage at my dad’s because it reeked of cigarettes. And seriously, leather is the worst when it comes to ridding it of scents. But it was well worth the wait. Vintage leather motorcycle jackets, especially ladies ones, are extremely rare, so I was willing to put up with the wait of ridding it of the cigarette stench, especially because it was…are you sitting down…? Ten dollars! I KNOW! I had to prevent myself from screaming when I tried it on and it fit perfectly. It was originally from J.C. Penny’s – take a look at this label! Which I believe dates to the 30s. Anyone know for sure?

Speaking of crazy awesome ladies leather motorcycle jackets, my dad actually found another one, though brown, that also fits beautifully, and I look forward to featuring it.

  1. I went to a museum exhibit about leather jackets, and supposedly Elvis got his first leather jacket from JC Pennys too. It’s not what I would have guessed 😉

  2. You look like a badassed geek girl. I love it!!!

    That jacket is AMAZING! I have been seeing modern ones everywhere…but would love to find vintage. But lets face it, sounds like it is already hard enough without also having a 46in bust! But you never know. I really would love a vintage one. Especially one from the late 50s/early 60s. I could even handle some honda branding (my grandfather was the first westerner to join the honda team and one their first motorycle grand prix) as it would bring me closer to him.

    Ok now I am off to hunt down vintage motorcycle jackets. But I doubt I could ever make it look as awesome as you do!

  3. That is simply one of the coolest sweaters I have seen! I wish we could wear christmas sweaters in Australia but unfortunately I would probably get heat stroke, so its not really an option. Have a lovely christmas! 🙂

  4. Stellar (see what I did there? :D) Star Wars + holiday season inspired outfit. This is by far one of the coolest December looks I’ve seen in ages.

    I hope that you guys are having a marvelous holiday season.

    Big hugs,
    ♥ Jessica
