The jacket is pretty thin, like a thin blazer material. The gold zippers in person look more obvious than the web photos, which is why I say it may have a bit of a trashy look. But sometimes I like ghetto gold. It's fun. I'm totally with Carrie Bradshaw on this. Remember the episode of Sex and the City where she finds the pear-shaped diamond engagement ring with a gold band in Aiden's bag... and threw up? Lol. Turned out Miranda helped him pick it out. Miranda: "But you wear gold jewelry." Carrie: "Yeah, like ghetto gold for fun. But this is my engagement ring!"
The zipper on this jacket definitely qualifies as ghetto gold. Even more so with these Lulu Tech Mesh tights. Hehehe.
What's up with the side hem of the jacket though? I totally didn't see it coming. This "shark bite" hem is a little weird. You can't really see it from the frontal view when it's unzipped, but it looks super weird if I zip it up. I would never wear it zipped up though, so I think I could live with this.
