Leather Love Affair


Leather Jacket - Zara, Blouse - courtesy of ModCloth, Jeans - Rock & Republic, Boots - vintage, Bag - Melie Bianco

These pictures are way old . . . way back from around Christmas time when I was in Las Vegas. I was cleaning out pictures from my laptop when I came across them and realized that I never posted them. So I was like what the heck . . . and here you are. This is me being as causal as can be, with a little bit of a rocker flair. I guess I can use this as an excuse to delve into my love affair with the classic leather jacket (as if you all didn't already know). I loved it way back in winter and I am even more in love with it right now. And you can sometimes find me sporting one in the summer, but only if a chilly night allows for it. The leather jacket just goes with everything, and I mean everything, in my closet. Dresses, denim, maxi skirts, shorts . . . the list goes on and on. It's such a staple for me that it is kind of ridiculous. The leather jacket . . . definitely a Dylana essential. The one I am wearing here has been handed down and replaced with a slightly different (and much better) one that many of you may have recognized on the blog recently. I know I'll be keeping it forever. Long live the leather jacket.

What is your fashion essential that you can never stop wearing?

Looking at these pictures kind of make me miss my old hair. But don't get me wrong; I love my new chocolaty brown, slightly shorter 'do. Yay for being a true brunette!

I know what you mean - I recently bought my first leather jacket and can't stop wearing it! Want to take a look? http://www.femininebravery.com/2011/04/black-leather.html

Loved your old hair, but I think the new one suits you just as well :) Love the new colour more!

Great look. Love the Modcloth blouse. Cool print. My essential is the maxi dress. I have a couple and these are the first items I grab from the wardrobe if I'm heading out casually. They are so easy to wear and suit my figure.

Oh yes, leather jacket is essential in a girls wardrobe. Also a simple chic dress, jeans and black heels. And a '50s skirt. At least that is for me :))

Vero said...

thanks for such a nice comment! <3 I also fell in love with leather jackets but my absolutely most import key piece is one of my vintage denim shirts. I really can't stop wearing it too. and every evening I lie in bed thinking about what I could wear the next day it goes on the same way: the first outfit that comes into my mind is my denim shirt + some combination stuff. it's kinda annoying but that's true love I think. :) I'm your reader now, great blog!
love!
