Off the Rack: Bomber Jackets at Target

After seeing a cute bomber jacket in a couple magazine/TV ads for Target, I decided to track one down at my local store.

However, the Mossimo faux-leather moto jackets were all unintentionally creased and plastic-looking. Anyone care to disagree? Did the faux leather jackets look better at your store?

Elsewhere in the accessories department, I spotted an adorable saddle bag that looked convincingly vintage, the type of thing you dream of finding at your local thrift store but never do (at least I never have.)
