Toast of the Town

First, let me say Happy Father's Day to all the glam rock dads out there!

"Mirror, Mirror on the wall...who is the glammest of them all?"

So, en route home from Cleveland, Eric and I stopped at one of those tacky outlet malls. I was in search of a new computer bag, but what I found is perhaps the glammest clothing item of all time.

The glam mistress loves clearance racks. I don't believe in paying full price for much of anything, and when I found a long section of leather jackets for dirt cheap, I pounced.

On the end of one of the racks was a cropped, white leather jacket with studs. I grabbed the jacket and it fit!

Then, Eric pointed out there was a giant Guns n' Roses logo on the back. This in addition to the studs, a small rose on the front, and full animal print lining.

My heart stopped a little.

It is, perhaps, the best jacket ever created. It was like the designer made it for me and placed it near Cleveland in the off-chance I would stop in for a visit.

Here's the best part: The jacket had an original price of $375. I paid $30.

I do love a great deal.

Nice catch! I wish we had some places like that around here. We do have them down in Williamsburg but considering we never get any decent acts around here, I doubt we'd ever see anything as cool as that.

That kinda reminds me of this coat that my wife had when she was in high school. It was a white leather coat, but it had the long fringes on it. I used to call it the "Paul Stanley" coat. It's still hanging in our basement for posterity. She was more of a hippie by the time I met her, but still had a few remnants of the old hair metal days floating around.
