Leather Lover?

I bought a pair of faux leather shorts. I felt (okay, I still sort of feel) a bit ridiculous buying and wearing them at first but I also kind of love them…






Have you made any purchases recently that you feel a little bit awkward about?

Finally, because I am nothing is not a shameless self-promoter, head over to my shiny new Facebook page and tell me you like me!

I Love this look and you pulled it off flawlessly. I have some silk pants that I got from the J Crew clearance that I feel awkward about. I don't want people to think I am wearing pajama pants lol. I Love them though, I am just not brave enough to wear them.

You know it helps that you have good legs. But I do understand that doing something different like that is a bit daunting.

I completely understand the allure of the leather shorts! If I found a pair that fit, I would have to buy them, even If I only wore them a few times, ahah.

The leather shorts are awesome. It's a great look. I got sequin shorts a while ago and I don't know what to pair them with since they are so short.

I love anything leather (or faux leather actually).. those shorts are great.. I'd pair them with a white lace top for a night out.. I think I'm gonna go get me ones too..
take care..

Marie said...

They look great - - very chic, and surprisingly understated. but I totally know what you mean about feeling nervous wearing them. I just bought a super over the top satin dinner jacket that I can't stop feeling silly in!

They look fab on you Courtney! I bought mine a pair a while ago (after ages of searching for them) and I love them but don't wear them often enough- you've totally inspired me to pull them out again! :)

Brownie points for being so daring! I would have been too nervous to try these out, but you have managed to pull them off in a subtle, chic way!

Okay, you not loving those leather shorts makes me sad because you look effing bangable in them.

OOooo, me likey. Good for you for getting them even though you felt a little uncomfortable. I think they look really cute, and I love them over the purple sweater tights (even though I am SO over tights right now). Way to step out of your box a little Courtney - it totally paid off!
xo, Ashley

Well I LIKE it!!! The shorts are great, and the outfit is a nice compliment for them.

I totally like you and your blog, but I don't have facebook. Good luck with your new page though :)

You are rockin' those leather shorts! I think I may have the exact same pair :) I haven't gotten to wear them much, but you've inspired me. After my remix ends I think I'll put 'em on again!

Love the leather shortss! I actually purchased leather shorts a few months ago that just do not fit me right. As much as I try to love them, they just flare out and look kind of ridiculous on me. After one hour of wearing them, they were instantly added into my City Brewed Shop!
Have an amazing day!

LOVE! them.

Pop Champagne said...

I've been wanting a pair of leather shorts, I think it's so hot, but prob opt out for faux leather because it's less heat attracting... I think they look hot on you!

StyleID said...

I love your leather shorts ... would wear them just like you did with the tights under them ... They look great on you.

no, they look so good on you! this is a great outfit. you're such a leather shorts wearin' natural (:

Fashion Limbo said...

I also kind of like them too, where are these from? I thought of getting a pair for myself but as usual, with shorts I'm unsure.
I also doubt my purchases A LOT, with risky numbers it happens, you never feel completely sure, but then if everyone else is wearing the same thing you become bored and feel unoriginal ;)

i think the leather shorts look great...and that's really the way to wear them "safely", with similar colored tights, if you feel awkward at first. after many years of not wearing lipstick, i bought a few bright, bold colors and felt weird at first, but i love them now!
