I don’t know about you but I pinned, tumbled, tweeted, and studied this particular photo to death since the moment it was published (Oct. 2011, in case you’re wondering). I believe I let out an audible gasp when I first saw it – though that’s not saying much, I do that all the time. It’s quite likely up there in my top 10 street style shots of all time. WHOA. Huge call. I know. But seriously, I adore this look and everything it stands for. Love her androgynous attitude, the black+white+leopard combo, and her strappy sandals that buckle all the way up her ankle  (why do I always love sandals that are so hard to put on?).

HOW TO WEAR:: LEATHER TROUSERS

1 Mar

We’ve all seen tight leather leggings, they’re a staple of Victoria’s Secret models (like Rosie!) and I even sport my own all the time — not that I’m comparing myself to a Victoria’s Secret model. But one look I haven’t yet tried is the looser leather trouser. There’s so much more material to be reckoned with, it’s a lotta look! I wasn’t sure how exactly I would wear them so I checked out the runways for inspiration. If you look closely at all of these runway looks you’ll see that there’s nothing skintight about any of them, on top and bottom. Loose-fitting sweaters, jackets, and blouses are paired with simple heels. I don’t know that I have the guts to try this look just yet, but I’m definitely fantasy-styling outfits in my head.

I’m loving the idea of having big roomy pockets that I can actually stick my hands in, something skinny jeans can’t offer!

THE SLIT

9 Nov

I have a leather mini-skirt, I came this close to the pleated leather skirt trend, but now? It’s ALL about the slit. It’s so 90’s. Not that I was wearing leather skirts with thigh high slits in the 90’s (when I was 5). But that would have been very Carine Roitfeld, no?

I particularly love that Caroline (of CarolinesMode) styled the looks with sneakers instead of the standard stiletto. Dalmatian spotted sneakers to be exact. And dalmatians are way hotter than leopard right now – did you see Topshop Unique’s collection?

EDITORIAL:: Grey + Leather

10 Feb
Two of my favorite pieces of clothing are my grey tank and my leather pants. So it’s as if this editorial was styled just for ME. Hey Elle magazine, Thanks.

LOOKBOOK:: Jackets + Mike&Chris

6 Jan

As I described below, I’m still craving leather & tweed despite my summer status.. but you can hardly blame me with such sick jackets on offer! Take for example this Mike&Chris collection (expertly styled here by brilliant blogger Ashley of purse ‘n boots!) I want every jacket in the lookbook!
In fact, I’m heading out to the country for the weekend and I have my fingers crossed that the higher elevation will produce a cooler clime where I can at least layer a scarf or boots to satisfy my craving.. have a fab weekend everyone!

EDITORIAL:: Perfect Outfit

6 Jan

I have to admit, I haven’t adjusted from the holidays yet. My mind is still wrapped up in the cold weather of Washington State (where I spent 2 weeks with grandparents and family and so much food). Now I’m back immersed in Sydney summer, where all the girls are walking around in their cut-offs and I’m still reaching for the leather jacket.
This outfit strikes the perfect balance: sharp leather jacket, short pleated skirt, strappy heels! Yes please

STREET STYLE:: ZARA + LEATHER

23 Nov
Another item for the Christmas wishlist… THIS Zara jacket. It has the perfect slouch, the perfect collar (moto but not too biker chick) and some great detailing on the shoulders and pockets. And just in case you’re wondering how I’d wear it?? Here are 3 different ways.
p.s. brown please!
