In Love with Leather

2 November 2010

In Love with leather

I have to admit, I am rather in love with leather.

The thing that appeals to me the most… is the texture and subtle sheen it has. When you’re wearing black leather in an all-black outfit, the leather has a subtle glow and depth about it. It’s understated chic.

My ultimate style wish-list includes – real-leather black pants!

I would love to be able to purchase real leather all the time, but it is just much too costly for me. I bought a real leather skirt a while back, and I just can’t justify anymore real leather anything (for a while).

ANYWAY the point of this post, was to show off my new leather-look shorts that arrived from YesStyle!

They look so hot! And cute! They feel buttery soft and light too. Looove them!

Leather and hot pink nails! How rock-chick can I get? I just need some skulls and sheep skin boots?

I chose this lovely sand-coloured blouse too, which looks like a typical shirt, but it only un-buttons half way down, the bottom bit if the shirt is sewn up.

I thought it was a bit weird… (I’m not partial to clothes with fake pockets and fake openings) but after I wore it, I realised how SO VERY convenient it was – especially when tucked it into my shorts or jeans. The tucked-in bits did not come undone in a lop-sided way.

And lastly, the necklace is a super cute, double-chain Sewing Machine and Scissors necklace from Pigeonhole – who have informed me that you can now buy their goodies online. Check out their accessories range. They have some of the best range of quirkiest jewellery I’ve seen online.
