Daily Wear: Electric Leather

Inspired by a call on Weardrobe for a contest (best leather look; alas I did not win) I decided to break out my favorite electric blue leather jacket. I decided to use it to remix a summer dress of mine, to make it more fall appropriate.

So this is how I wore it in summer....

Oh yay, I'm reposting couch mess. oh well

And here is how I styled it for fall...

I replaced the hot pink tights with some subdued grey ones. Patent black kitten heels became my neutral booties. And of course the cropped denim jacket was replaced with my leather jacket. It's such a vibrant color that i went with very dark and plain neutrals to go with it. It's the star of the outfit!

I get a lot of comments whenever I wear this jacket. My friends often hassle me about it and have called me Michael Jackson derisively (before his untimely death, those jokes would be inappropriate now). But strangers go wild for it, love it, have asked to buy it off my back. So I think my friends are secretly just jealous. I don't care anyway. I look forward to wearing it every year when there is a chill in the air.

Oh, and before I forget, here's a close up of the dress. i don't think I've shown the stars well yet.

Thanks for reading! I have to hurry and check up on the blogs I read before dashing off to work...running out of time....
