PBG Fashion: Swacket

This weekend I had the pleasure of going out shopping with my best shopping buddy - my mom.  We were looking for a dress for my office Holiday Party this week. The shopping trip was a major success.  I found a lovely red and black Mad Men inspired sheath dress by Calvin Klein for $36!!  And my mom tracked down the perfect stacked pumps with a rosette detail to complete the look.  I will be sure to take some pictues of the outfit on the big night.

But, the other major purchase was a swacket.  That right...a swacket.  I bet you have never even hear about swackets until today.  I have to tell you I had no idea what a swacket was until this weekend.  And I have to say, I am impressed.  What is it you ask?  It is a cross between a leather jacket and a sweater.  My purchase was black leather front with knit arms and back.  There are lovely flowette details around the collar.  It was too sweet to to pass it was on sale.  Score!  I haven't taken any pictures of me in the new swacket but I found this image below on the Nygard website.  Isn't it cute?  (the picture doesn't do it justice).  Imagine it with skinny jeans and knee high leather boots.

Floral Leather & Knit Swacket
The leather makes it sexy, the knit makes it fit nice and snug without being uncomfortable.  What more could you ask for?
