WIMW - New Combination of Old Items -- Which Jacket for Date Night?

This is a very typical CocoLion outfit.  I cleaned the garage in it earlier (true).  The genius of denim is that you can just brush off the dirt and it looks even better, more authentic.

There is one new item here, can you guess what it is?  [Cue Jeopardy music in the background to help you think...]

Zara sequin and leather jackets are both from 2012, Chaser graphic tee from 2013, Freebird oxfords from 2013, handmade belt from 2008, jeans are a 2014 duplicate purchase of a 2013 item -- Rag & Bone skinny in Kensington wash.  (I have this jean in 2 sizes to accommodate weight changes.)

It's the watch!  It was a birthday present from Mr. CocoLion.

So, which jacket should I wear?  The sequin (1) or the biker jacket (2)?  Picture 3 shows a view of the hand-made belt from LA designer Kim White.  (As well as my beloved Roomba in action.  I hate to clean.)

    I like both jackets - one is more summery obviously so it would depend on the weather and how sunny my mood was. Love roomba too! 

  • Suz replied 4 years ago

    I didn't even know what a roomba was until I visited Sveta! Seriously -- the things you learn on YLF. 

    This is a great outfit any which way you wear it. I would, as Shevia says, follow the weather and my mood. Also, you didn't say where date night is. It might depend on the place a bit, no? 

    Gorgeous watch, too!

    Ah, I prefer the sequins! I like the mix that you have going on in that picture.
    I like the back pocket placement on the jeans!

  • Peri replied 4 years ago

    I vote for the first one. Very fun and different. Looks more festive for date night. 

  • Karie replied 4 years ago

    #1 for a warm summer evening sounds perfect. #2 looks great also, but perhaps that's more of a fall, cooler weather look.

  • replied 4 years ago

    I think both look super. I think the first look is more summery so I might nod to that but you make it hard to decide!

  • Janet replied 4 years ago

    I think they both look great, just different vibes. I think #1 is fun for a more festive, modern vibe. 2 is more expected rocker chic.

  • Sal replied 4 years ago

    They are both awesome but I would go with 1.  My thought process is that the leather jacket probably gets more wears so I would seize any change to wear the sequins.  

    Nice watch too!!

    I am not a good housekeeper.  (I prefer hiring one, but those days are in the past.)  So the Roomba is perfect, and much cheaper. I didn't buy it, my Mom did.  But she's such a picky housekeeper, it wasn't good enough for her, so she gave it to me.

    I'm thinking of going with the sequin jacket,  I wear it all the time.  I can't believe I almost sold it on eBay a few years ago, it is a workhorse.

    I like both jackets (the sequined one is delicious!) so I'll go along with those who say let the weather, venue & mood of the moment decide.

  • Debbie replied 4 years ago

    Love the sequin jacket for you. It looks great for date night.

  • annagybe replied 4 years ago

    Either looks good. But yeah the sequin is more fun. Nice watch!

  • Caro in Oz replied 4 years ago

    Happy Birthday Denise. Love the watch.
    My vote is for the sequin jacket & you have the best fitting jeans :) :).

  • Astrid replied 4 years ago

    Great watch! I vote the sequin jacket too, more fun.

  • jenanded replied 4 years ago

    The sequin is 'prettier' if that is the mood you are going for on your date :-) Yes that watch is way cool....

  • Meredith replied 4 years ago

    I vote for the first jacket. I love how unexpected it it. TO me it brings the whole look up a notch.

  • kkards replied 4 years ago

    as others have said i love both versions. #2 is straight up rocker chic, #2 is more like taylor swift rocker chic….

  • Olivegreen replied 4 years ago

    A vote for the black jacket...i like the proportions on you.

  • replied 4 years ago

    they're both good so it's more about preferred vibe of the moment, liking the jacket.

  • lyn67 replied 4 years ago

    Sequin one is more fun, but love the biker, too! :-)

  • texstyle replied 4 years ago

    Hard to choose -- #1 does seem more like summer colors and is beautiful on you. But I also love #2. More roomba love here. We have wood floors and live in a pretty dusty area (aside from the recent wet spell). I barely ever pull out the big vacuum. I just wish they had a way to clean stairs!

  • jackiec replied 4 years ago

    I think I'm late to the party but I like the sequins! You are looking so good. Love the jeans, but I'm a jeans gal too. I'm learning all about this roomba thing too. I think my dogs would bark at it and chase it everywhere......just a regular vacuum sets the puppy off like crazy :(
