Every other person is walking around in leather or leather-like shoes, clothes, accessories. So I as usual decided to go with the flow. I have never been a fan of leather jackets because, a) they are short (waist length and I wouldn’t dare to go long cause I will end up looking like terminator! Lol) and don’t disguise my bad bits like bum n thighs 😦 and b) I thought I couldn’t pull them off! However, I did buy a leather jacket the year of 2010 which I went totally crazy about in the store and after 1 use it went back straight into the closet unnoticed. I finally brought it out of the closet to go on a night out with my girls in July where nights in London were a bit chilli.
After that night I absolutely fell in love with my jacket. I did not stop at that, I decided that I wanted a more biker look to my jacket and went shopping. After several hours of looking and finding the right one, my eyes fell on these very cool biker leather-like jacket in Zara. The price was reasonable, it made me happy and so the jacket goes off the racks. A week after I bought my second jacket, I fell for a third waterfall faux suede-leather jacket.
And so it doesn’t stop at the jackets! Then comes the skirts and trousers. On a casual shopping trip with a friend, we spot these amazing leather panel trousers by river island. Although a little pricy I think it’s perfect as it creates an illusion to slim down my beefy thighs (*eek*). To worsen my obsession, I spotted these H&;M leather like trousers a couple of days ago (which is a lot more cheaper than the river island leather panel trousers). I was worried about the fit but once I tried it on I absolutely love love loveeee these trousers. Although a size 14 is still slightly tight, I couldn’t just say ‘no’ to these. You can be certain that I will defiantly be wearing them a lot for this season (it keeps my leg warm!) with long tops.
I also love the leather-like skirts. The pencil skirt is so stylish and I would love to own one of these, however, they do not do any justice to my body type so I will like always stick to the skater/flared skirt.
