Check it Out!-Faux Leather Pants

 

IMG_9822

Hello Ladies, I hope you all had a great weekend, as the Holidays draw near

Can I tell you about my “fun times” as of late!  LAST Thursday morning, it seems in the wee hours, there was a Crawler scouring my site. . lets just say it did it enough to cause the CPU usage to skyrocket and have my site down.. I right away think “hacker!” what do you want with a fashion blog? Arent their more interesting things to do with your time.. well fast forward about an hour and hubby solves the mystery Yes , he is my awesome  computer nerd!  Brilliant! So my computer, in fact, did not get hurled out the window or anywhere else I might decide, as patience is not my virtue. So…. I  wll move on!

Lets just say I have a plethora of faux leather skirts in my closet for this time of year, ok? And besides, how many times to I get to say “plethora”! I remember my first well, they used to be called “pleather” and I thought that sounded so cheap, pants, I wore in my 20s, and I think I thought I looked pretty sexy in them at the time. However, they were more like Ross from Friends, when he wore his first pair of leather pants, and needed talcum powder to take them off! Halarious!!  but is it?..hmmm.

Anyway, I think brands have come a long way and the look of pleather or faux leather is much better these days, these ones I am wearing are from Ann Taylor. I actually went “crazy” and bought  another pair, slightly different from Zara around the same time as well, and will share that later.

I don’t always follow trends, most of the time I beat to my own drum, and if it falls into the “trend” category, then so be it, but I don’t seek out something because it is trendy. I have seen many bloggers in faux leather pants and leggings recently and have really liked the look, so I thought i would try it.  ( give it a go:-))

I would like to wear this with a poncho or cape, but since I presently do not own either, I decided to wear it with this lovely burgundy knit longer cowl neck sweater that I can wear off the shoulders or as is. Of course I love the burgundy color, i never seem to tire of its family either.. the plums, deep reds etc. Being that the sweater is a longer length, I wanted to wear a short boot to elongate the legs… ( i will wear these again with OTK boots, but different proportions)

These are some new booties! All leather by Seychelles, and found on GILT< a site with discounts on new items.  I have been obsessing about boots lately, but have to look for ones with a maximum of 1.5 inch heel height. Not always easy.. i’m picky! So, there you have it, my first take on the faux leather pants, maybe I will channel my :”inner rocker “next time! 🙂

    […] LEATHER OR FAUX LEATHER-  Who doesn’t love the look of a moto jacket? Whether it is faux or real leather, jackets are looking good this year. I have picked up a moto jacket from the Nsale for the past 2 years. I love the sleek look of leather and the rough and toughness you can get combined with a more elegant or feminine style. Look for leather trousers, jackets in the stores this Fall. I also love the look of dark florals with a leather moto jacket? I also have some pencil skirts I will be styling for Fall. Faux leather leggings are a staple you will see alot this Fall, and I enjoy wearing my black Ann Taylor pair styled many ways. Read Faux-leather Pants […]

    Great look! Awesome sweater & necklace with the pants!

    I have the half faux leather half fabric leggings from Loft. And I paired them with a tunic in the same color as your sweater! 🙂

    Who else can weather leather pants and still look utterly elegant? You have styled them up perfectly with the off the shoulder sweater too. I smiled at the reminder of Ross in those leather trousers and all the creams and talc he used to get them back on again hahaha. Plethora is one of my favourite words, but isn’t easy to weave into a post – well done! I’ll look forward to linking up with you soon.

    P.S. I was the “victim” of a crawler too….I had a HUGE spike and all from Israel, weird! I am not sure what the point of it was, maybe it was just random? Maybe they were needing styling tips? Who knows?!?!

      Ahhh so we were both attacked… Sam, you always put a smile on my face with your comments. I really like them as well, and even bought another pair. Zara has some thickness to their leggings that I like and feel comfortable as well
      Ahh. you are too sweet, glad you think I am sexy and lady-like, I strive to be both :-)) I liked that I can wear the sweater in seeral ways and am a fan of off the shoulder. Ha! Try to go into a store and ask, where is your plethera of pleather , pretty please? hahah

      See you tomorrow! xo

    Love the faux leather pants, Jess! They look so real! The burgundy sweater (one of my favorite colors, as well!) is perfect with the pants and the boots are super cute!

    So sorry about your computer problems! That’s scary! Glad your husband was able to resolve the issue.

    Wishing you and yours a wonderful, blessed and stylish holiday 😉 xox-M

      Thank you Mary for the Holiday wishes! Yes, it is a good thing this is what my hubby does for a living. Troubleshooting is one. Glad you like the Ann Taylor leggings, I also bought a pair from Zara I will wear and they are even more like leather, companies are making them much nicer these days. Best wishes for your family on Thanksgiving!

    You’re so right faux leather pants are much better now than in the 90’s. I think designers want to make them look as close to real leather as possible. You look fabulous in yours!
