Self Made Challenge Day 5

Blue Jacket- Self Made
Black Sweater- Joe Fresh
Jeans- Ross
Studded Boots- Winners

The outfit I wore with this jacket today was quite plain because I didn't want to take anything away from the jacket.  I made this jacket as a tailoring project in college.  It was made using alot of hand sewing tailoring techniques.  I love all the seaming details on this jacket...and love the fabric used for the lining.  My one issue with this jacket is that I already have broad shoulders, and I feel like the shape of this jacket makes them look even broader....thoughts?
So yesturday I was looking through my inspiration pages that I pull out of magazines and on one of the pages I noticed these brown boots.  They are almost identical to my black boots I wore today...but are priced alot higher.  I bought my boots at Winners for $70, they are real leather and they are the most comfortable boots I've ever owned...I love them so much, which I'm sure you can tell since I wear them so often.  This shows that either designer items are way over priced...or else I just got a smoking good deal!

Not sure about the jacket, the angle on the photo makes it difficult to tell! The boots however are fantastic. I keep saying that....
