Trend Trials – Leather

I’m excited to share my inaugural post in a new series dedicated to my pursuit of trying the latest trends.  We all know that the most ‘trendy’ pieces aren’t always the most practical for our lifestyles or compatible with our body types.  So, I’ll be picking one current trend each month and attempting to recreate it in an everyday, average Jane fashion.  Some trends will succeed, while others — I presume — will not be as lucky and will be banished to the back of my closet.

(Hint hint, wink wink, boyfriend!)

Fashion Finds

This past weekend gave host to countless numbers of sales.  Between C. Wonder and Gap’s 40% off your entire purchase and J.
