Tough Leather

I am thrilled to be back in NYC this weekend.  My sister is coming to visit and tonight we are headed to a dive bar in the east village, to watch her boyfriend's band perform.  His band, The Nico Blues, is an alternative rock band that plays in venues all along the east coast.  When I first saw them perform a few months ago I was definitely blown away by their talent.  If you want to check out some of their songs (all originals) you can visit their website here.

Whenever my sister comes to visit, we always look forward to getting ready together and playing dress up with each other's clothes.  Since we are headed to a concert tonight, I am planning to rock my faux leather pants (similar to the H and M ones pictured below) and my studded Sam Edelman heels, which I posted about here.  Inspired by all of this season's gorgeous leather pieces, I picked out a few of my current favorites that I would love to have in my closet.  I can't promise they are all budget friendly, but I think the gorgeous leather studded jacket just might be worth it.  Rock on.

  5. Loving leather for fall. It's great to pick with feminine pieces for an edgier look.
