wanted: chic leather jacket

I've been on the lookout for a leather jacket for two years now. Two years in - I'm at the height of frustration. It's impossible to find one that a) I love and b)I can afford. I love both Audrina's and LC's jackets below.

Mike & Chris Danny Leather Jacket
In searching online I found two that I like (well one that is okay and one that is W-O-W) but both are crazy expensive.

Jackets found at Neiman Marcus & Saks

Juicy Couture Leather Biker Jacket - Neiman Marcus - $695
Paper Leather Drape Front Leather Jacket - Saks - $995 (SWOON)

Help?! Do you have any tips? Shopped somewhere affordable? Found a beautiful leather jacket recently?

Your post is about one month too late... I could have had my mom and dad look in Italy (the leather capital of the world). I ended up with a pretty fun purple leather bag. I love it!

Audrina inspired me to want one as well... The only decent ones I found were at Urban Outfitters. But that was fall, so I'm not sure how their leather jacket inventory would look in the midst of summer...

I love the one Audrina is wearing. Wish I could look that good in a jacket like that.
