Hell For Leather

Leather Shorts & Blouse: TopShop. Boots: ASOS.

As you can probably tell from this post and the last one, I am obsessed with leather at the moment! 

Leather can look trashy so I try to keep the rest of the outfit quite soft. I also think that some leather items can take you in the wrong direction.... For example: Tight leather hot pants. To me, these say "hooker" but leather shorts say "hello I'm a rock star".  Leather trousers: Yes please. Leather catsuit: No thank you. Its a very fine line!

I want a leather skater skirt next. If any of you see a good one, let me know :)
