Dear Diary,For a long time I’ve preached about throwing away the labels we put on our clothes so we can recognize the true potential our closets really have to offer. My signature: dress down your occasional pieces for a day (see Stop The Labeling). However, I recently realized that I’m guilty of holding a stereotype over leather apparel for the longest time!
When it comes to chic and modern leather apparel, Balmain’s runway shows immediately come into my mind: stick thin models striding down the runway with skinny leather pants and military inspired leather jackets, looking so tough and full of attitude, which I am totally a fan of.
But it wasn’t until recently when I found this faux leather skirt with ruffle detail around the waist that I discovered the more feminine side of leather. So tonight, it seems only appropriate that I treat my newfound style to a romantic night out on the town and a Dallas style steak dinner.
