Lately I find myself drawn to anything with leather (or faux leather) trim, and when I saw this dress, it was love at first sight. Did I mention that I scored it on sale with an additional discount? Yeah, it was a no brainer. My affection for leather trim is very much centered on pieces that get some much needed edge from the addition. This dress is a fantastic example: without the trim, I wouldn’t have even tried it on. But with the trim on the sleeves and pocket, this dress feels like a modern (albeit minimal) spin on a shirt dress. This outfit was begging for a few eye catching accessories, so I grabbed a statement necklace and printed tights. Ah, the tights…it is with great regret that I don’t have a photo that shows the tights in more detail as they were my favorite part of this outfit. All of my attempts to capture the black and magenta chevron resulted in painfully awkward knee shots. (Not cute.)
