I'd love to have some leather outfits. Maybe some black leather pants (cut like jeans of course) and a red leather jacket and skirt suit combo. Because I'm poor right now I'm avoiding buying items that are a) really expensive and requires dry cleaning.

I can't believe you mentioned adidas campus sneakers. There are some being sold at a store within walkings distance from my house that I am refraining myself from buying. I loooooovvvve old school sneakers. I've already owned 2 pairs of adidas gazelles in my lifetime. And the campus style is supposed to be much better.

helena...i've got the best pair of blk leather jeans from daryl k that even your grandfather would approve of...they are just like levis jeans (not tight at all) ...except they happen to be leather...in the winter when it's cold out...there is nothing better to cut down on the wind chill factor...only to be worn casually with my adidas campus snkrs or my blunnies (blundstone workboots from australia) and a huge chunky blk t-nk i got in london years ago...very rock n roll but in a completely androgynous sort of way...i've seen boys wearing exactly the same outfit!!!

i also have a blk lthr twisted slvls top from thimister which is a sculptural work of art...it's completely elegant and tasteful...fitted and very soft lther...i wear it with blk wool jil sander trousers and a high heel boot...usually a small sculptural slvr necklace on a blk cord ....again...rock n roll but exquisitely elegant... a very rare and beautiful thing...

and i'm a big fan of your mixed patern combo...
Softgrey - given that I am convinced you are a woman of much taste I am suitably ashamed at my forthrightness in my opinions on leather clothes! I guess within any generalisation there is much scope for exception. The sculptural top sounds lovely.

Do you know what I mean by the leather trouser thing though?? - what i hate is that tight leather trouser, pointy-toed high heel boots with tight top, big hair & Louis vuitton bag look that is just...not very nice.

they aren't that expensive and totally worth the investment...i've had mine for years...they have recently been re-issued...but who knows for how long...i just love the round toe...it's chunky without being dumpy...just so cute and perfect...

i forgot...i recently purchased a blk lthr wrap skirt at bergdorf by claudie peirlot...i haven't worn it yet...but i plan to wear it with a s/s ecru/heather grey wide stripe cashmere sweater from j crew...and a 2 1/2 " round toe t-strap shoe...it just reminds me of a french beatnik...think audrey in funny face...i really want to wear a beret with it...but it's just too silly ...and it will have to be opaque striped tights...NOT FISHNETS...or it really would become french streetwalker...

oh helena...i know EXACTLY what you mean...very ...but as a stylist...i take great pleasure in using an item that appears ridiculous or unwearable and finding a way to make it work...it's like a game or a challenge to me...fun fun fun...

i think that's why i like this thread so much...it's really interesting to hear what people are thinking as they are putting themselves together...

like what lena said about interesting details...i'm ALL ABOUT the details...special buttons or a cool textured fabric...these are things many people often overlook...but subtletly is key for me...

those women in their tight sexy clothes are SCREAMING look at me...

i'm whispering it... ...

i'm convinced! loving that. I would wear the beret - you live in New York - if you can't get away with it there... one summer years ago when I was a student,I tramped about Edinburgh with a grey felt beret on - I loved it but I got lots of strange looks.. but I didn't care.

getting too excited by this topic!! must calm down.

talking of buttons - I bought new buttons yesterday to sew onto a claudie pierlot coat I got in paris in march - the coat is slightly military stly (navy - so typical) and the original buttons are just plain round plastic. But I bought some blue buttons that have a gold trim around them - going to sew them on tonight - I think it should be good. i was thinking of starting another topic to see what people do/have done to customise their clothes - like new buttons or cutting sleeves etc

I have to go & do some work though.

Nothing that bares too much of a breast; use something to secure a really plunging neckline and wear something underneath a very sheer top, nipples work on a runway, but there are rules beyond fashion in the real world.

*hardly a good judge*


that sounds good, the white cargo pants give it a whole new twist, plus the red is in the shoes.

you're officially my new favorite TFS icon
