Leather. There really is nothing like it. The smell, the way it wears as you break it in, and the way it makes you feel. I remember having a pair of leather pants many years ago. They were fabulous. The only bad part to wearing them was when you got hot, and trust me you will in them, its extremely difficult to get out of them. Oh, and going to the bathroom? forget it! SO glad fashion has had a little sense knocked into them and these Leggings are a much more user friendly alternative to the full blown pair! I love the fact that there are panels of leather instead!
I work in a professional office so sometimes being too fashion forward, or dressing out side of the box as they say, is too much for my environment. This leather trim Karen Kane Blazer is the perfect touch of edgy style, and staying office appropriate at the same time! And for when you want to wear it on the weekend, pair it with some skinny jeans, and a lace top for an easy transition. This would definitely be a wardrobe staple.
So you know I have a thing for shoes. This Schutz Shoes tie at the back of the ankle is soooo sexy! Did you check out the metal plate the laces tie thru? Um, yes please, I will take these in a size 8 thank you!
Now I know I have said before, and if you know me then I know you have heard me say no pleats, or plaids when it comes to skirts. Sorry, thats the parochial school girl in me! I had all the plaid pleated skirts to last me a life time in high school. I am sooo willing to make an exception to the rule with this fabulous to die for Skirt . Technically it is not a full pleat so there! Oh the fun I could have with this hot little number!
What do you think of my four favorites this week? Are you lusting after any leather this season?
