Leather & Lipstick

Monday, October 15, 2012

Give me some red lipstick and a leather jacket and this
little lady get sassy!

I didn't realize how much attitude I was exuding until I began editing these photos. It's kinda funny how much spunk a leather jacket can bring on. I have to tell you though, I am obsessed with this leather jacket. It's a Forever 21 creation (go figure) but I bought it at Plato's Closet with the tags still attached! I love that it's leather, but the sleeves are a knit. I hate tight, constricting arms on anything, so I love that the arms on this jacket are super comfortable. The only problem I have with this jacket is, that, it's too dang hot to wear yet! Apparently LA missed the memo that fall has arrived! In the past 3 months there has been one day where the temps dropped below 77. Most days it's upper 80-90's. I am so incredibly tired of this grossness. I demand Fall temperatures ASAP!!

I am so tired of the heat, too. Bring on Fall!

Cute dress! LOVING polka dots at the moment.

I love the contrast of the tough leather and the sweet polka dots! I think I need to move to Cali because I'm already hating the cold weather here in Jersey. I'd kill for it to be 80 again!

I love those wedges! And great find on the leather jacket. I searched high and low for the perfect one last year and mine is Forever 21 too. Love this look! <3

Love your black and white look! And those shoes are amazing! ;)
I got my leather jacket from Walmart two years ago (crazy, I know) and I love it! ;)There is just something about a leather jacket that makes every outfit awesome. (With the possible exception of jammie pants and uggs - nothing makes that outfit awesome.)

Nikki said...
