Moto Trend for Fall

The black moto jacket is one of those items that is a must have in every woman's closet. For the last few years I have been looking for a black faux leather moto jacket that looks as sumptuous as the real thing. I knew in my mind what I wanted, now I just needed to find it. My friend's (and Juan) hate going shopping with me when I am like this. I picture what I want in my head and nothing but that will do. They can show me a million black faux leather moto jackets and none will do. The way I see it; if I am thinking of it in my head, then clearly someone out there will have thought of it and made it, right? I am not kidding when I say I have been looking for years now.

Then it happened...

I took my girls to start their back to school shopping a few weeks ago and I walked into Zara's. Why? I don't know, because this shopping trip was to start back to school shopping and for a new pair of black D'orsay heels for me. (Still looking). But I was an hour away from home, near a Zara, I had to go in.

There it was, so beautiful. So sumptuous. So perfect. The Zara Biker Jacket. Could it really be faux leather? Could it be everything I was looking for? Those sleeves were exactly what I envisioned. I couldn't wait to check out the zippers, were they a little longer than necessary on the sleeve like I wanted? Would there be a true moto style design on the back? Please oh please...

YES! YES! YES! It is perfect, and it fits like it was made for me! And the price? $99.90! OK, so here's the thing, it wasn't in the budget for right now. Not with back to school shopping looming and my need for new shoes. But I just couldn't leave it. It had to come home with me. YAY!

So now you would think, sweet, jacket scored! End of story. But noooo now I want Banana Republic's Sloan moto style pants, a cute little bucket bag like the one by Lauren Merkin's pictured here or a totally hot pair of ankle booties like these by BCBGMAXAZRIA. Man I need to win the lotteryso I can buy all the moto things!

So tell me has this type of obsession ever happened to you?
