What I bought today - Primark leather sleeve jacket

I'm sure you have all seen at some point the infamous Zara khaki jacket with leather sleeves...well it was an instant sell out, there were two versions priced between £60 and £80 I think (correct me if I'm wrong) however this little beauty is from Primark and cost a very purse friendly £25!!!! I saw the Primark autumn/winter 2012 pictures (promo picture below) the other day and spotted this immediately, I knew it had to be mine - luckily I found it in store today as it was new in and my heart skipped a beat with excitement. To be honest whilst on the hanger it looked a bit floppy and not THAT great, though as soon as I tried it on it looked completely different. The material is really lightweight and comfortable, it's fully lined, the colour is spot on and it fits true to size (which for Primark is unheard of), and the faux leather sleeves are actually very convincing and generally look great. So, I 100% recommend this jacket as its such good value for money, can be worn a load of different ways and can be worn season after season.
I've posted some khaki jacket inspiration below, don't they all look fab?! I shall be showcasing my way of wearing this jacket, and attempting to look like these beauties, over the next week or so - so keep your eyes out for it. I'm too excited, I adore it - will you be snapping this jacket up? Get it before it goes...
