Leap into Leather

By Elena Schmidt
Posted On Oct 11, 2013

I don’t do leather, but I do not quite have a reason why I adhere to that rule. I do not recall ever taking a stance against it, or hating it when I see the occasional bold woman passing by me in leather. I simply never found a place for it in my life, or in my wardrobe.

Today the leather (or pleather, faux leather, polyurethane etc.) hot pants trend is taking off, and to be honest it intimidates me. I want to join in but I don’t think I’m ready yet. Until I work up the courage, ModCloth’s “Easy if you Twilight” dress is the perfect training leather outfit for me. The sleeveless “leather” top complimented by the rose chiffon skirt creates a gorgeous combination that I can wear to work along with the Eat, Bouque, Love Heels or on a date paired with sexy pumps. It fits perfectly and I feel completely confident, despite its foreign fabric.

I can already feel myself getting closer to hot pants. Stay tuned…

How to Buy: Modcloth.com; $62.99 (dress) and $49.99 (heels)
