Mad Bombers & Aviator Jackets

I’m not sure how I became fascinated with shearling aviator hats and aviator jackets?  Was it my passion for studying about American history, specifically World War I and World War II (though the Civil War was equally as intriguing) or the costumes which occasionally appeared on old comedy shows such as Abbott & Costello (my favorite growing up)?  One thing’s for sure, I was madly in love with the Amelia Earhart aviator jacket which appeared in a UGGs catalog shortly after the brand gained mass popularity.  I remembered pining over it for days; how expensive and unattainable it seemed.  When I had finally saved up for it, I had waited too long and it was totally sold out =(.  Winter, as usual, has peaked my interest in this particular style of outerwear and accessories once more…

P.S. Juicy Couture has created a chic faux twist (in dragonfruit) to our beloved Mad Bomber styled hats…

They’re Back… Muji’s Amazing Touchscreen Gloves!

I bought a pair of black wool mix unisex touchscreen gloves last year from Muji (also well-known for their awesome acrylic storage) and totally loved them for their warmth, softness, non-itchiness (which woolen products are notoriously known for), and touchscreen capability!  How awesome; no more having to take off my winter gloves to text on my phone in the cold!  I’ll never take this for granted!  Very sadly, a few months later, I lost mine and Muji had sold out of it many days ago (they were also not re-stocking due to the approach of Spring) =(.

I remember that after I first bought my pair, I loved them so much I mentioned it to my husband as we were trying to figure out what to get family members for Christmas.  He ended up buying a similar pair to Muji’s for his brother; who had a sparkle in his eyes when he found out they were even better than the original plain winter gloves on his wishlist.  Muji’s unisex gloves range from $19.95-$21.95.  Anyway, you get the point.  Go to Muji and check them out!  I just ordered a replacement; I’m one happy girl again! =)
