I’ve never really been interested in leather as far as clothing goes. Handbags, yes. Shoes, certainly. But skirts, pants and jackets, naaaah not really. I blame that episode of Friends when Ross wears leather pants and sweats up a storm in them, takes them off and can’t get them back on. It created a bit of a phobia for me. I’ve steered clear of leather pants, skirts even, just in case. I’m sure you understand.

I have however been looking for a decent black leather jacket but I can’t decide on a style yet {Bomber or more Blazer looking} so I keep looking. But no matter how cool leather is this season I just can’t do it. Maybe I just haven’t found the right piece. But seriously ALL I see is Ross in that darn bathroom hopping around… Awkward.

Soooooo, a nice alternative for the leather-phobes amongst us doesn’t have to be pleather. This cute skirt sent to me by Harlow Australia gives the look without the possibility of ending up going home covered in lotion and baby powder without your pants on… If you know what I mean {Ross!}.

The material is stretchy and comfortable to wear. Mine gave a little swish when I walked. The upside/downside is that Hubby wouldn’t quit touching my ass. Embarrassing really. But he’s right, of course, the feel of the skirt is really silky and supple. And I think it goes wonderfully with this chunky knit and some heels. I can also see me wearing it with my black knee-high riding boots when it gets colder. Mmmm snuggly.

 Leather {even leather look}, it’s just a little bit sexy, right?

    Love this skirt and the leggings. Now that you have said they are more comfortable than pleather I might just have to indulge

    So in love with this look!! It’s perfect! x

    You look fab though…I’d totes rub your bum too.

    • Haha. I’m SO glad I’m not the only one. Love you!
      Excellent, I’ll be sure to wear it next time I’m in your general vicinity. 😉

  • Fabulous look. Very cute little top pony/bun (hard to tell which from this angle. Very nice polished look. I am not keen on the leather skirt but I love this leather look stretch — looks real.

    • Thank you.
      It’s a bit of both. A looped ponytail made into a bun. Haha.
      The stretch, the quality and the general look of the skirt is what I love.

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again.

    It’s sassy.
    I love me a bit of leather – leather high boots or leather jacket, not both. Nobody needs to be wearing a whole cow.
    I paid $550 on a leather jacket that I loved – it is good money to spend.

    • Saaaassy. Haha. Thanks Cilla.

      HA. Whole cow. I have a leather jacket in my sights at the moment as I know it’s a long term purchase and worth the big spend. I’m still hesitating buying online though, I’d rather try them on.

  • Sparkles and Lace

  • Amy Wells

    Ooh, very sexy! And you have to love a lady who can pull off chartreuse!
