Lusting for Leather

     Leather, you old fickle friend. One minute your uncomfortable and not willing to make me look good, next your making my closet sad for not having any. What is it with you, that makes me keep coming back? Mostly, I think it's the cool factor. Like from the 80's and then the 90's and now I want a leather jacket that says "I have bike to go with it". It's seriously become very trendy and chic. I am literally having cravings for it. If I see a shirt with a leather patch I want it. Yeah it's that bad. Thank god for these AA meetings right? Helps me acknowledge my problem.

Leather in how many ways? 
Well, let me count them for you:

Leather Leggings:

From: Club Monaco Tasha Leggings

From: Kirna Zabete for Target: Leather Pant

From: TopShop Matte Leggings

From: Zara: Leather Jeggings with Zips!

*Note: Piperlime has a great selection of Leather like denim: Piperlime Leather Denim

Leather Applique's: 

AA*s pick: Fall color + leather = amazing!
From: Combo Tee

From: Zara: Faux-Leather sleeves T

From: Leather Sleeve Dress

     Now onto my personal favorite, leather sweater/ leather jackets. I don't know what it is about this season, but I really want cold weather to come quickly. I'm so over this 80 degree weather we're having here in California. I know I should be thankful, but all I want to do is bust out my sweaters & boots. This season there are so many chic and edgy sweater with leather patches, sleeves, pockets and what not!! It's so hard to decide what I want!!

***This is on my wish list ***
 This perfect cardigan with leather sleeves that looks so cozy, I just want to wrap myself up in! How can anyone walk out of the house with out this?!
On the down side, if I have about 1500 to drop; this Donna Karan Leather Knit Cozy would definitely be mine. 

In the meantime, I could settle for this Zara Sweater with Leather sleeves 
not bad huh?
