This python jacket was yet another find from the treasure trove that is Cheap Thrills vintage in Tulsa, Oklahoma. My mom and I laid eyes on the jacket and knew it had to come home with us. The jacket was being kept in the backroom, and we happened to glimpse it as exited through the back of the store to avoid the rain. We saw this jacket and froze...the owner wasn't in the store so we had to come back in the morning for it, and thank god Cheap Thrills was open on Fourth of July.
When it's laying flat you can see that the sleeves are ever so slightly puffed...so seventies. The python skin is in perfect condition. Glorious.
Worn with a Madewell denim shirt, a Ralph Lauren little girl's skirt my grandma got for me, a Lucky Brand hat, and those totally crazy no-name vintage boots I got in Austin last year at Big Bertha's.
To share a quote from my favorite movie Wild at Heart....
Sailor: Did I ever tell ya that this here jacket represents a symbol of my individuality, and my belief in personal freedom?
Lula: About fifty thousand times.
Have a good weekend!
