wardrobe oxygen 7 wardrobe oxygen 3I've been craving a moto jacket, but most leather jackets are just too stiff for what I desire.  Stella Carakasi reached out and asked if I'd like to try a piece from their collection and I was immediately drawn to the Discover Jacket.  Made of a water resistant blend of cotton and metal, this fabric is soft enough to flatter my curves yet structured enough to be a proper jacket.  With a cool metallic finish and black metal accents, this is a jacket that can work for the office or be a relaxed topper for the weekend.

wardrobe oxygen 4Stella Carakasi is a California-based designer who creates affordable luxury fashion while making a positive impact on local and global communities through her design, commerce, and sponsorship. Focusing on eco-friendly materials and sustainable manufacturing methods, the brand comes in sizes XS (2-4) through XL (16) and from what I have tried, I find the sizing to be generous.  I know many of you have been looking for sustainable fashion brands that go past a size 10; so far I am impressed by Stella Carakasi and look forward to trying more of the collection and sharing it with you!

    Lovin’ the jacket on you! And, I see, you managed to replace your tee 🙂

      Yes! Though honestly this one doesn’t compare. It’s stiffer, it’s cut like a classic Hanes t-shirt, and it has even more crazy of washing instructions. I’ve stretched out the neck and hems to give it more of a relaxed/vintage feel.

    I really like this jacket from StellaCarakasi—usually I feel that their items are so unstructured—but this jacket looks fabulous on you! Very rocker chic! jodie

      Not completely… this was too soon and I felt it and had to change. However, this weekend I have worn very low block heels. Baby steps!
