Pinning / Bedroom Redesign Inspiration

18 Feb

As part of Jim and my Cleaning House project, one big part of the project is re-designing our bedroom. We had re-designed our apartment back around 5 years ago immediately after we got married, and the bedroom was the first room we did. Somehow between doing the bedroom and the rest of the apartment, our tastes changed and now our bedroom makes no cohesive sense to the rest of the apartment. It’s really bizarre. For example, our bedroom’s color palette is sage green and dark brown and the ENTIRE rest of the apartment is gray, white and different shades of purple.

So our goal is to make our bedroom a cozier version of the rest of the apartment. I started a dedicated board on Pinterest . Here’s some of my favorites so far.

Vegan Versions / Mens Gray Leather Jacket

Boss Gray Leather Jacket $695 @ Bloomingdales

While I’m keeping all tan and warm in Miami, I figured it would be appropriate to keep the blog on track for fall and winter with vegan fashion wants. So let’s talk leather jackets.

This post is especially for my hubby, who by the way has just notified me he hates being referred to as hubby. So from this point on, on this blog he’ll be referred to by his name, Jim.

Over Labor Day weekend we decided to take advantage of some of the sales going on in local department stores and go shopping to update Jim’s wardrobe. One of our friends works in men’s fashion, and she set us up with a fantastic list to shop off of. So we dedicated most all the weekend to locating the items and crossing them off the list.

While at Century 21, Jim found and fell in love with this gray leather jacket.


It was made a brand I’ve never heard of called Infinity. I couldn’t even find this brand online to link their look book photo. It looks very similar to the Boss jacket at the top of this post. The jacket looked amazing on him. It fit perfectly, and the gray was a unique color that really suited him. The only issue with it was it was leather.

When he asked me what I thought of it, I told him the truth. It looked amazing on him but I wasn’t happy it was leather. I really didn’t want to get all preachy on him, he did only recently go vegetarian. I offered to find him a vegan version of the jacket, but if he didn’t want that and really loved the Infinity jacket, told him to get it and left it at that. He loved the Infinity jacket so much he initially made the decision to get it, but later prior to heading to the cash register changed his mind and put it back. He said he felt guilty. All in all, I was really happy he made the decision on his own.

So Jim, this special vegan versions post is for you! I found you a gray leather jacket that looks almost exactly the same as the one you loved. So now you can look all sexy and badass for all us ladies without any guilt, knowing your jacket is a compassionate choice.
