Looking for Leather

I’ve been looking for the perfect leather skirt for ages. I love the leather look and want to add a skirt, pants and shorts to my collection. I already own a gorgeous brown leather jacket, but who doesn’t want a black one too? I’m still on the hunt for these items, but here are some of my favourite styles:
 Looking for Leather
  1. Muubaa, Laser-cut short, $300
  2. J-Brand, RTW Black Leather Pants, $1400
  3. Burberry Brit, Leather Biker Jacket, $1690
  4. Madewell, Shrunken Leather Bomber, $605
  5. Miss Selfridge, Black Leather Skater, $100
  6. A.L.C., Leather Swing Skirt, $855
  7. Alexander McQueen, Leather Classic Skull Box Clutch, $1525
  8. Diane von Furstenburg, Leather Pants, $465

I’ve become a huge fan of the Alexander McQueen Skull Box Clutch. I loved it when I saw and posted about it, here, and am now looking to find one similar, but for a lesser price (of course).

What leather piece are you looking to add to your spring/summer collection?

Green with Envy

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. This year, the  Spring 2013 Fashion Week trends included this rich emerald green colour; also extremely appropriate for St. Paddy’s Day. It doesn’t mean you have to go all out and wear head-to-toe in green, but rather, picking one piece and pairing it with black, white or whatever colour you choose. Green With Envy
  1.  Equipment, Fern Green Signature Silk Shirt, $325
  2. Vionnet, Casual Pants, $930
  3. MCQ Alexander McQueen, Goldtone Stud Leather Ballerina, $385
  4. Diane von Furstenburg, New Cahil Dress, $225
  5. MCQ Alexander McQueen, Studded Pointed Leather Pumps, $470
  6. See by Chloe, Silk Top, $135
  7. J. Crew, Miri Mid-heel Suede Pumps, $196
  8. Topshop, Knitted Mix Stitch Sweater, $55
  9. Valentino, Emerald Backless Lace Dress, $6140

My two favourites from this selection are the See by Chloe silk top and Equipment blouse. I love pieces that can be dressed up or down and I can picture both of these with dressy leggings, dress pants, jeans or even shorts. Versatility is key.

*This Valentino dress is simply stunning. I love the cut, design and the elegant lace layer. The back of the dress is to die for! I’d love it in black as well!
