Faux Shearling Aviator jacket

For all my fellow Canadians you know the struggle this time of year of balancing the need to wear spring clothing and the reality that the weather is bipolar here in the North. And of course I choose the coldest most windy day to want to wear light colours and take photos. With that said I will take any excuse to get the last bit of winter wear out of this amazing faux shearling aviator jacket.
Anyone that knows me knows that when I get something into my head followed by “I need that in my life”,I will not stop until I find it. That was the case with me and finding a faux shearling aviator jacket. This style became popular in the fall/winter 2015 season but I wasn’t drawn to the look so I was not interested. However, this past fall my love for jackets really got out of hand to be honest ( I need to join a group) and I became so hell-bent on finding the perfect one for me.
I spotted one of my favourite fashion bloggers ,Victoria from Inthefrow, sporting a beautiful black one from REISS and of course I looked it up but had to pump the brakes on that so fast.Stunning quality, beautiful jacket (especially the grey version) but way out of budget so my search continued.
I hit up all the usual spots like Zara, Topshop, Aritzia ,Guess, BCBG, ASOS and so much more but I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for . Although I loved the black one Victoria was sporting I decided I wanted a lighter shade, really had my eye out for a grey.
I was beside myself when Marciano finally brought out this stunning neutral beige shade, I think I talked about this jacket for a month before it was finally available in store. However I still did not buy it… mainly because I though the fit was just a tad too oversized for my small frame. Not to mention, the way I eat, there was no way I wouldn’t ruin this beautiful piece.
I kept looking around while keeping an eye on the Marciano jacket from December straight back until January and when they drop this beautiful $348 jacket to under $200 and then added an additional 60% off? I snatched the very last extra small so fast and have not taken it off since. I absolutely love everything about this piece, the colour is perfect, it is ridiculously warm, the fur is beyond soft and so far it hasn’t marked. I’ve worn it with dark wash denim and there has been no colour transfer. Besides being an absolute stunner no matter what it’s paired with, not going to lie, the self-appointed professional deal finder in me is so proud of the massive discount I got on this jacket. It is still curently available on sale on their website right now.
