Swagger

Swagger: A demeanor of confidence, coolness, style, and togetherness. Someone with Swagger gives of an ora of comfortability with his/her self. Swagger is commonly referred to as Swag or Swagga. 

A couple of days ago in an elevator I was told I had swagger. This came from an older gentleman whom I’ve casually ridden the elevator with a number of times now in my office building.  Apparently, I have a reputation in the building for having incredible style and confidence. This was the first I’ve heard about this and am very flattered. So I thought it would be fitting to name this post, Swagger. Especially since I was wearing this outfit on that day.

I’ve mentioned Muubaa on a couple of other blog posts (click here and here), and I have yet to find another brand of leather jackets that I like better. I love their jackets so much that I’ve started a small Muubaa collection in my closet (so far I own 2 leather jackets and one pair of leather pants). As I’ve said many times before, and will continue to say, leather jackets are a staple piece worth investing in. I can spot an inexpensive or pleather jacket a mile away (and that’s not good) – it’s better to set aside money and spend some time looking.

This brings me to my latest Muubaa leather jacket, the Merini in mint. While is says mint, it looks more gray then mint to me. Which I am perfectly fine with, I happen to love the color and faded finish.

I am really excited about this current blog post – I was lucky to have my friend, Ian Hylands offer to shoot some photos for me. He is a professional photographer based in the Pacific Northwest that specializes in action sports and lifestyle images. If you are a mountain bike enthusiast like I am, then you’ve seen a lot of his images in catalogs, magazines and online (especially on Pinkbike.com).  He’s worked with most of the popular personalities in my favorite sport and it was an honor to be his subject. We recently spent an afternoon walking around Oakland, California looking for interesting locations to showcase a fierce outfit for Motel Rocks, as I’m part of the Motel Rocks Street Team. (a team of fashion bloggers spreading the word one blog post at a time.)

Putting on a well-made tailored and designed leather jacket instantly gives one major sex appeal. Leather jackets have a bit of history; starting with the early 1900’s worn by aviator and military personal, they then began to achieve iconic status in Hollywood by the 1940’s, and are now relevant in today’s Pop Culture.

I’ve spent some time online researching leather jackets, and recently came across a brand I had never heard of – Muubaa. They are a UK company that makes leather jackets, coats, trousers, and accessories (made in India). After reviewing their current 2012 Biker Jacket collection online (click here) – I instantly fell in love. Everything was basically designed with me in mind – at least that’s what I would like to believe. The buttery soft lambskin, distressed finished look, asymmetric lines, draped shapes, and feminine detailing screamed, I must own one!  There is something to be said about a bad-ass leather jacket that is so well tailored, it holds a lot of femininity.
