Leather and pleather.

Back to the grind stone today – and not just in the office  – as I also had a request from Poppy for a French pleat in her hair for school picture day.  Not what I needed at 6.30am this morning.  A handful of grips and a can of hairspray later we had something that she was happy with – I bet it was down by the time she got to school!

I’m in my leathers again today – I really need some new leather leggings.  These are fine but having no butt means that they are less than tight around the arse.  I really want some leather leggings – just above the ankle bone, tight with some stretch in them, and a front button and fly.  Any recommendations that won’t cost an arm and a leg?

Trousers – AllSaints leather Delors pipe jeans // Shoes – Zara court // T-shirt – Zara // Linen top – H&M long sleeved // Jacket – River Island (not online)

Darn it – I’ll never save money – this always happens – looking for links, just now for my outfit, I discovered a new gem – look at this jacket and tell me this isn’t an Isabel Marant knock off – I LOVE it!!

    Have you ordered the jacket then?

    I keep thinking do I need some leather/pleather jeggings or have I been reading too many blogs? You look great today – this is classic Joanna.

      I need you to report back on the jacket – while you’re out buying the Next jacket – before you return it:)

      I have – I just ordered some from Madewell here so will see how they work out – a real skeptic of pleather!

      Thanks! I wish they were more like leggings though – they feel a bit loose round the arse:)

    Hi, Yes love that look too. Do you have a budget for the leather jeans? My recommendations top end price (maybe get them in the sale) has to be Joseph every time, butter soft and an amazing fit! Cheap as chips pleather try H & M, i got some brill ones there, and everybody thinks they are real!! xxx

      Hmm will have to look at the Joseph ones – I have seen some Vince and Rag and Bone pairs that look great too – I might have to actually save for these to get the ‘right’ pair! A Xmas treat maybe?

    “Leathers are not for the over 40’s”???? Good heavens, give me strength!!! They look fab Joanna – I’d love some myself, but the budget doesn’t stretch to them!

      LOL indeed – since when were there rules? And if there are rules let’s break them. I just ordered some pleather ones from Madewell that were on sale – a lot cheaper…hope they work out!

    Love this cardigan and the colour on you. Yes! Thought you were going to say isabel marant. I was talking to someone the other day about her – she has become incredibly popular incredibly quickly.
