Leather Accents

Sandro coat

Here’s a recent look in the asymmetric hem quilted skirt with a mens black jumper.  Why don’t they make ones for women cut like this?  It’s always the mens section that has the best basics.  This coat could’ve been unisex too when you think about it if was cut wider.   I really like the leather collar and have gone off black leather sleeved coats and jackets. I still have one (do I sell it?) and I altered the other by cutting the leather sleeves off to wear it as a long waist coat instead.

This coat is by Sandro (on sale),  the tights are H&M, the boots are Balenciaga and the wallet is a find years ago from a random shop midtown.

Today is Wednesday (hair cut day).  Thank you for sharing your thoughts on what to do.  Ugh, it’s like I’m going to the bloody dentist!

ps. Check out my feature in Glamour.com  where I’m dishing on my staple beauty products.  I really use these all the items all the time (as long time readers know).  Thank you Glamour and for having me  included in such great company!

I HATE when a make up find gets DISCONTINUED.  Arrgggh!!! The above lipstick is available thank GOD but I'm talking in general.  I have a list of make up that I fall in love with and after a while it disappears.  WTF? Why does this happen? Has this happened to you?
