Jacket Jam

 Jacket: Gap

 Jacket: She Said, J. C. Penney's

 Jacket: Xhilaration, Target

Jacket: Abbey Dawn, Kohl's

I was in Macy's the other day when I saw a mint green Members Only jacket.  Like so much of what came out of the 1980s, it was both laughable and magnetic, pulling me into a vortex of color-drenched madness anachronistically set to Beck's "Where It's At."  (Although I know that the line "Members only/Hypnotizers/Move through the room like ambulance drivers" has nothing to do with the jacket, I can't help but see that satiny silhouette whenever I hear it.)  I wanted to buy it but resisted,  instead choosing the spiffy (and surprisingly pricier) turquoise Target slicker pictured above.  Riding on that retail high, I thought it would be fun to photograph my most colorful jackets (as you do in such situations).  And I was right.  Even if I did discover that out of more than twenty pieces, only four proved to be rainbow-ready.  Perhaps I should reconsider becoming a Member . . .
