[Leather Weather]

[Leather Weather]

Leather weather is in full effect and I'm planning on wearing it with tons of beanies, silk blouses, and cut-offs (since SoCal weather still allow them). Here a classic fall combo you'd catch me in my leather jacket. I'm so happy to have serendipitously found this leather jacket on my way to a meeting at the Ace Hotel. Oak NYC was having a sample sale across the street from its original store stationed on S. Broadway and thankfully I was a tad bit early so I snuck in to have a peek and boy, was I happy I did. Not only did I snag this badass leather jacket for a fraction of its retail price but I also racked in a ton of other goodies I'll share on my blog later this week. Another goodie I found in a recent sample sale escapade: these killer shorts. How sick are those patches? According to Haruna of United Couture, each patch was hand-selected and was especially hard to find so I was happy to indulge myself in some shorts even though we're closing in on some cold weather. The cut is similar to One Teaspoon while the fit is a bit tighter than your average cutoffs. Hence it's perfect to wear some stockings underneath when the weather gets colder. Going along with the Tokyo-theme, I thought I'd throw on my favorite platform sneakers I got in Tokyo for another steal of a price. Finding things you love at a fraction of the price is the whole fun of shopping don't you think? Dreaming of my next trip to Asia... until then, happy Monday! I hope y'all have a productive week!
