Real or Faux Leather Inspired.

Why yes, I am loving the first look.






Sequins and leather-but-not-actually-leather? Yes, please! Simply-chic outfits featured in Elle Canada's October '11 issue, especially that first look. Something that a glam rockstar might wear, don't you think? My goodness I am a little obsessed with leather lately. I absolutely need that leather vest in my life, as shown in the last image. I can not completely explain why I have a leather obsession lately, but whether it is real leather or faux leather, I am not one to be picky. Quite a few interestingly styled looks from this shoot, but it is definitely all about being inspired by that first look for me. On another note, I am jealous of the model's hair that has that effortlessly tousled look, which probably took more effort from the hairstylist on set than one might actually think. I may actually have to ask my hairstylist on how to master this look the next time I decide to get my hair done, which reminds me that I really need a new haircut, but... Most people fear needles and dentists, yet I don't. For me, a visit to the hairdresser has somewhat of the same flustered and anxious emotions. I am not sure why this is the case, but I am guessing it is from some traumatizing childhood experience that I have managed to erase from my memory. I am definitely grateful that those nervous emotions have somewhat diminished now that I have found a hairstylist who is so delightful, and helps me put all those worries aside. Oops, I somehow managed to ramble about nonsense, again.

I bought a faux leather jacket at Target (no joke) for about $40 nearly 4 years ago and the thing is still kicking...even tricked my Textiles teacher who thought it was real!

Guess you luck out sometimes! :)

Apparently I enjoy reading rambling nonsense then. ;) I think I can relate to the anxiety of a hair salon visit. I love going when I know that the person I'm going to see, is skilled and we're on the same page. However, when I've moved and I'm shopping for a new hair dresser, it's a really nerve wracking experience (which I'm going through right now). I would love to find the perfect faux leather and fur pieces for this winter. I've fallen in love with some of the lush 70s looks you can create with them. xoxo

I love wearing leather coats in the winter. Pair it with a scarf, slim jeans and knee high boots = a chic look.
That first look kills me.
Thanks for sharing.
