Mercury Duo compact fake leather jacket

At the end of spring, I realized I could do with a new black cropped length/non-coat outer that isn't too casual but still warm. I was pretty much wearing the same cardigan over and over again. I looked through a lot of different Jfashion brands and finally settled on this one from Mercury Duo!

(Faux) Leather riders jackets are nothing new and I've had a few in beige, pink and lavender from Liz Lisa over the years. This is my first purchase of a black one actually which is a bit surprising! There are always a lot of options and I often think about getting one, but have never been able to justify it since I have something a little similar already. However my existing jacket is finally starting to shred in a couple places (my fault) and I specifically wanted something with a very specific length/crop that didn't extend too far past my natural waist.

This Mercury Duo jacket is a bit pricey for faux leather but I had a decent opportunity to get to a store and see if they had it in person to know if it was the actual item that I wanted. I saw it, touched the material and immediately asked to try it on. It was a bit awkward bc I obviously loved it but knew I wanted to purchase online where there was a small discount, but I was happy to confirm that this would be worth the cost. I ordered it immediately upon walking out of the mall.

There won't be a ton of opportunities to wear this jacket in the immediate coming 3-4 months, but I'm very very much looking forward to fall where I think it will be absolutely perfect! This type of jacket doesn't really go out of style and I know I will continue to wear things that will pair well with it. Now just to find an ivory/beige version in this cut...
