(faux) leather and lace...

BB Dakota Jacket (Paperdolls boutique)/lace top (old)(similar)/COH avedon jeans (similar)/Aldo booties (here)/tribal necklace (Paperdolls boutique)/Small(er) necklace (bauble bar)/Olivia Harris (by Joy Gryson) purse (old)

I've been on the lookout for a great leather jacket for a few months now so when I spotted this faux one at one of my favorite local boutiques at a (beyond) reasonable price I snatched it up as fast as I could. I love the color block detail and that even though it's faux leather it doesn't look or feel cheap.

As I was thumbing though my closet looking for the right top to pair with my new leather jacket I suddenly became aware that I was humming "Leather and Lace" by Stevie Nicks. You know the one....

Coincidence? I think not. I grabbed the only lace top I have in my closet and voila! Leather and lace... (although I'm pretty sure this is NOT what Stevie Nicks had in mind when she wrote the song.)
