Uniqlo [synthetic leather bikers jacket] Review

I got my box of Uniqlo goodies two days ago! I think it is the only time I have every squealed after receiving something I ordered online. I placed the order on Monday and it came Thursday so I am very happy with the standard shipping speed. I'm probably only going to post photo/review of the linen tunic and faux leather jacket because the other ones are very basic and Uniqlo has their sizing chart. I usually wear size 2 at H&M and XS for everything else fits fine.

Uniqlo Women Synthetic Leather Bikers Jacket I was very hesitant about ordering this on Uniqlo's website because from what I can remember while browsing the store, their sizing (at least in the down jackets, shirts and dresses) seemed very generous. In the end, I decided to go by the sizing chart they provided on the website and decided on the XS. I was also skeptical of the quality of the faux leather because all my encounters with faux leather hasn't been great - ie: H&M (disaster), Zara (so-so and not worth the price, TopShop (like Zara, even over priced). After reading the limited review offered by Uniqlo, I decided to take the risk and get it since it was only on sale for $40.

After opening it and trying it on, I must say I am impressed with the look and feel of this faux leather biker's jacket from Uniqlo. The faux leather looks like some of the higher end jackets (as one of the other reviews mentioned) and to me, the feel of the material is soft and buttery. The buttons on the lapel? unbuttons so you can zip it further up on those windy days. It definitely won't keep me warm like a real leather jacket, but I had mainly bought it for the style since I didn't own a faux/real leather jacket. I mean....what I really want is a jacket from AllSaints but I couldn't find anything I really loved to justify paying $600. 

For the price and quality, the alternative version from Uniqlo is very good and I would definitely recommend it. I give it a 8.5/10!

I am excited to dress this jacket up with a LBD and collar necklace for a night out

Man...I need a haircut.
