If someone still hasn't got the (p)leather trend this season, he/she must be a great, giant fashion outcast. It's seen everywhere, literally: on the streets, in the stores, everywhere! The whole trend started -as I'd believe- on the Fall/Winter 2012 runways, where not only the fashion houses that are known to bring out spectacular all-leather-looks like Givenchy, Mugler and Rick Owens (yeah those dark and sensual ones), but also less tougher brands like Alberta Ferretti and Fendi were carrying clothes fully made of leather.

While I was typing the above sentence that is way too long to sound correct in English language, I was verbally pronouncing the word "leather" a couple of times. And by a couple of times, I'm indicating 10 times+, which led to inarticulateness. Ah leather, how I love you, but can't easily pull you off!

Below my take on the leather hype this fall, a pleated pleather skirt with some leather ankle boots that have huge hidden platforms, a little tacky, but comfortable to walk in and very very fun!
As you can probably tell, by the time I was photographed in this outfit, the grass was still green. Now it's of a yellowish mid-fall color, not the prettiest shade but hey, the golden leaves are coming! Kinda sad the weekend slowy comes to an end, but like all weekends, they come again in a few days. Have a hard working week people!
