Video: Teddy Coat & Leather Zipper Leggings

Hello! Just wanted to share my latest video. It was actually in my last post, but I felt it got lost in there. Now it has its own post to get it the attention in deserves. And I have to give credit where it’s due – it was put together my talented boyfriend. His videos keep on going better and better. We shot it on …

Why I Decided To Rebrand

Welcome to Short Girl Long Jacket! This is what I’ve been working on, turning Looking Glass into a new blog. I was proud of what Looking Glass had become and (most of) the content I’d created, which is why I decided to rebrand instead of starting a whole new blog.
