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.)

In case you didn't hear over on Twitter, you can finally find Style by Santina on Facebook! Yes, it’s true; after years of resisting I finally gave in. Since I know you’ve all been planning my welcome party for quite some time, please take a minute to head over and “Like” Style by Santina!

Aaaaand, don’t forget to enter my Orient watch giveaway! It closes this Friday, February 6th at 11:59 PM PST.

I seriously love that dress - the leather accents are great and I love the cut. And I've hoped over to Facebook and liked the page (or, rather, my Facebook page has hopped over and like your Facebook page).

You look fantastic. Also loved your picture on NYT.com party looks. So girly and wonderful--the contrast with your pixie cut is perfect.

Very pretty! I'm also a fan of leather accents. Or leather, full-on. Leather rocks! As a side note, the cut of this dress is very flattering o your legs!
