    Leather jackets are one of the must haves for everyone.Nice article though πŸ™‚

    Thanks a lot! My boyfriend gave me this ivory midi dress with lace details and a cut on the side that looks flattering on me but, since I never wear this kind of fashion, I was in the dark about how to style it. Your site gave me so many ideas! I’m definitely going to try the leather accents to go with it. (Instead of a leather jacket, a leather vest).

    LOVE this look! That Leather jacket is gorgeous on you and looks great with the floral / printed pants. πŸ™‚
