Faux Leather is the theme of my ‘Style Not Age’ group this month. I have some faux leather in my wardrobe, my most loved being my Spanx suit (below) which you have seen before.
But for this month’s challenge I decided to bring out my much-loved faux leather biker-style jacket (below), bought a few years ago in Carraig Donn an Irish-owned chain of shops. It’s also online, which is of course the only way of shopping for clothes in Ireland now.
Oh, how I miss a day out in town, wandering around the shops, maybe even trying on a few items. Remember meeting a friend for coffee or lunch?
But back to today’s outfit. As I said the maroon/wine faux leather jacket is a few years old.
The Diesel jeans were a present from the stylist daughter. She bought them about 16 years ago when she was working one summer in a boutique in Miami. And they fitted perfectly.
So, I resurrected them from the back of the wardrobe when I saw that boot-cut/flared leg jeans were fashionable again this year. I always loved them and delighted they still fit. I know the current fashion is to wear them shorter, but I like how they elongate the leg if they are worn like this.
The boots, several years old are Carl Scarpa and the bag is a present from a friend.
GAIL is wearing her much loved Spanx leggings and is embracing spring by styling them with a lovely green Zara coat and boots. I also like the pink bag and lippy. Pop over to ISTHISMUTTON to see what Gail has to say.
EMMA is wearing a top with faux leather sleeves from New Look. And faux leather boots from a charity shop and her vegan leather, red bag is from eBay. Learn more by checking out THESTYLESPLASH.
JACQUI has bought new faux-leather culottes. They look really comfortable and I love how she styled them with a cream coat and boots. You can find out more at MUMMABSTYLISH.
And ANNA is wearing a top and faux-leather leggings which are both pre-loved. The top/dress has a 70s’ vibe which I love and those sunglasses are so cute. Anna will have more to share on ANNASISLANDSTYLE.
So that is it from our gang for another month. Despite Lockdown in Ireland, the days fly by. But, like most people, I am thoroughly sick of it. I am trying to stay positive, despite the news that we are likely to see no respite for another two months.
Stay safe, my friends.
