Last month, I was infatuated with the ruffled leather jacket by Shadows and Dust in Craig’s photo of Amanda de Simone.

I contacted Shadows and Dust and they referred me right back to Amanda, who happens to be their rep here in New York. Sadly, I didn’t rock the jacket like she did.

The workmanship was exquisite, as was the ultra-soft leather. While I was there, I tried on a sleeveless leather jacket/tunic.

That one was also beautiful. Amanda says she’s worn it on the beach! If you’re interested in either piece, contact Shadows and Dust at shadows.a.dust@gmail.com.

Fashion Me Fabulous also has a thing for ruffled jackets. She pointed out two at wildly different pricepoints.

$2,095 on Net-a-Porter

The Shadows and Dust pieces fall in between those two extremes.

    I find both the VS and the S&D jackets so nice and I think it looks amazing on you!

    I love all those jackets. I’m surprised I like the VS, because usually I don’t like their stuff.

    I’m not sure why you think you didn’t rock that jacket, because I think you did. The tunic is also brilliant on you.

    I also like the jacket on you-the body was fitted perfectly and the sleeves could have been worn rolled up or down!!

  4. Lynn says:

    Same like the rest, I think they both look great on you, and I quite like the VS one too. So the big question is, which one did you get?

  5. Susie Bubble says:

    Love all the Shadows and Dust jacket…. the Aminika Wilmot one is a beaut though too…
    You DO rock that jacket…

  6. Winn says:

    I agree, you look amazing in that jacket! I really like it on you!

  7. cybill says:

    Yep, I’ve got to agree with everyone else, you rocked the jacket. If you found the sleeves too long you could have rolled them like A de Simone did. Have you tried on the VS jacket, its looks almost as good and I bet it costs a lot less?

    leather on the beach? i like leather jackets, and occasionally trousers, but a leather tunic is a bit too much for me.

    You rock everything you wear so don’t be a hater Wendy B! 🙂

    Unrelated but I remember reading your Patti Lupone love reviews and saw Gypsy on the weekend in NY and man, I was blown away! I knew Patti was good but this was a whole ‘nother thing. Wish I was still there to take it in again.

    Leather is great for work and also for your days of. If I’d the money, I’d buy the Aminaka Wilmont jacket!

    I’m really loving the leather & ruffles but am not sure I could pull it off. And how cute do you look!

  15. Blue Floppy Hat says:

    You DO rock the jacket (red lips +ruffled jacket= amazing)! It’s a beauty, all right..

  16. Queen Michelle says:
