Leather - Real or Faux ?

Calvin Klein Fall 2012 Leather

Hope everyone had a great weekend. This post is dedicated to the hot fall trend of leather. Leather is a great item to look out for in thrift stores or consignment shops. If that is not your cup of tea, then there are many options for you whether you want real or faux. Now, most of us want real including myself, but you can come across some great pieces in faux leather that don't look "cheap". I came across this pencil skirt at Forever 21 and was only $22.80. Some of the complaints I have heard about Forever 21 is the store is very large and their sizes are for smaller people. So, I am pleased that they have expanded their sizes. Also, their pricepoint is great for some of those staple or trendy pieces. This fall, retail stores are offering many bottoms in leather from shorts, pants, and skirts that can reflect your sense of style. Another leather trend that I will post on later is leather tops, which I am very excited about!

  1. Wow, your not-leather skirt looks so rich and chic, Carrie. I'd never guess it was "faux". And what a great price! Thanks for sharing your look with Visible Monday.

  2. Love the polka dot top with the leather skirt...such a great combo! Also love the options you picked out!

  3. Oooh, love the leather look!
    I do not own any leather pants or a skirt....yet! ;)
    You are styling!

  4. I got an amazing faux leather jacket from Express for Mother's Day this year from my husband (he may have been helped). I guess that's a recent purchase for me, lol. I love your header, by the way!

  5. I am loving leather and invested in a pleated skirt that I hope to wear for the rest of my life! Love your polka dots. Great post!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you ...
