I’ve been a fan of the wardrobe staple leather motorcycle (abbreviation Moto) jacket for as long as I can remember. Among the absolute favorites in my closet is my beloved Vakko moto that I purchased more than 10 years ago and spent a small fortune on BUT the leather was “like butter” and all these years later it still stands the test of time. If I can advise you on purchasing one item that you can wear year after year with a plethora of fashion possibilities I urge you to buy a leather or faux leather moto jacket. You will thank me in the morning and for many morning to come.

Not a fan of “Basic Black” try a neutral tone…think taupe/grey/brown.

Keep on the lookout (and just between you and I this won’t be hard) for the leather pencil skirt for Fall 2014. It is going to be big-well not big in size because let’s face it a pencil skirt looks perfect on every size and shape but the key to looking fabulous is fit.  Yes beautiful Glamour Girls -FIT in fashion is the secret to every woman looking stylish. There is going to be a lot of leather to wear out there this Fall and vegan or faux  leather can look just as lux as the real thing.

Jason Wu Spring 2013

Posted By: Terri

Allot has happened in the four years since Jason Wu  first gained national attention. Most of us became aware of this wonderful designer when he burst onto the fashion scene(literally overnight). ..Jason Wu was “THE DESIGNER” chosen to create a gown for First Lady Michelle Obama. I am sure you remember THAT gown-one shoulder, beautifully draped and with the most feminine  of detailing. Anywho-Fast forward to last weeks showing of Jason Wu’s Spring 2013 Collection. Mr. Wu has evolved and clearly feels comfortable pushing the envelope with a collection filled with lots and lots of leather, lace and more than a few looks sporting bare midriffs. I don’t know if the more revealing attire is something that our First Lady will be sporting but I will say Mr. Wu has definitely found his own point of view.
