Leather Up





BCBG Leather Jacket, Zara Leather Skirt (new), Vintage Belt, A. McQueen Scarf, Vintage Chanel Bag, Dolce Vita Shoes, Michael Kors Sunglasses,  Nail Polish: American Apparel Malibu Green, Lipstick: MAC Impassioned.

I don’t know about you guys, but when I think of the term “leather on leather” I usually think of something edgy, a little hard in feel and usually black or brown in color (which is definitely not a bad thing!). I wanted to achieve a look that was slightly softer wearing leather.  I liked the idea of pairing this bone colored skirt with my bright green jacket. I felt between the feminine pleats of the skirt and the color combo, the outfit got the slighter softer look that I was going for.

On another note, I’ve had some questions about my handbags. If you missed it, I did a post a few months ago that you could read here.

    I love the nude skirt,red bag and black tights, but I'm not sure about the green leather jacket.
    of course it looks good on you, becuase of your hair color, but I'm pretty sure I could go for some safe point and just add a black jacket. i know… I'm a bit predictable LOL
    Sorry for my bad english ๐Ÿ™
    Kisses Helena, you look lovely with the sjirt ๐Ÿ™‚

    Red and green is such a dangerous combo…Borderline garishly "holiday" in many cases but styled with black and beige somehow tones it down many, many notches. Love the flash of neon lip…I could totally see this palette working for spring! Super chic- Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ˜€

    I'm not good about fashion but I think you must play with your hands and feet I noticed that all of your post were just standing the only part that's moving is your head the beauty of the dress didn't maximize it's potential remember that a model is one of the key for sales. Thanks just giving my opinion and a little tips too. xoxo
