Ready for Takeoff

by fancypants, January 31, 2011

I’ve always had a bit of a thing about aviator style, since my husband is a pilot and for the last 13 years we’ve been to one airport or another every weekend. I’ve got my Tom Ford aviator shades (see left – we’re in Darian’s little plane Nelson) and for quite a while I’ve been looking for a great jacket to complete the look.

Of course I nearly plutzed when I saw Rachael Zoe’s jacket on her Facebook Page. It was one of those little-angels-singing experiences. Uh yeah. It’s Burberry. And costs, like, a gajillion dollars too many. Bananas indeed, girlfriend. And then, one day, I went into American Eagle, pretending I was buying something for a teenage niece as a decoy since I felt way ancient there, like, yah, ok? And there it was. For around $100. Eat your bananas Rachel Zoe…
