How I wear a leather dress & Fancy Friday linkup

Me in my black leather dress

I used to love my leather dress. Nowadays I still like it, but there is also a dark cloud hanging there because of animal well being. I am also eating less and less meat and I sometimes see myself becoming a vegetarian one day. It doesn’t hurt to think twice when you buy leather or eat a lot of meat. But I think I will not buy a real leather dress or skirt anymore, the faux leather ones are just as good!

But I think I’ve had this leather dress for about eight years. Haven’t worn it for about six years. I remember that I wanted a black leather dress for years. A close-fitting, sexy and cool leather dress. Like Nikita wore back then! (if you remember that series)When I bought this one, I actually thought it was a bit too short, which is why I didn’t wear it that often. Now I think it was a shame to just hang in the closet.(blogging gave me a lot more confidence) And I certainly won’t sell it. So wear it!

Wear that leather dress girl!

I always like to do that. Something that you no longer love and is hanging in your closet for a while now, and then style it with items you never wore on that item. Try to mix it with something completely different. I, for example, take a skirt and then go over to my tops and sweater closet and look for things I have never worn with that skirt. I do the same with the jacket and cardigan closet. And often I come to a outfit that I would never thought of wearing it like that. I also did it with this leather dress, but you only can add a cardigan or jacket of course! And a scarf! Lol. It’s fun to be a bit creative with your clothing. 

That’s also why I never, almost never, buy a complete outfit. I just by seperates. Because I tend to wear that complete outfit in only that way. I don’t like that. But it often happened to me that I bought a printed skirt and had nothing that I thought looked good on the skirt. Yes even with a seperate closet for my tops that happens!black leather dress and green ankle bootsHow to wear a leather dressblack and green outfitWould really appreciate it if you would share my photos on Pinterest.

    This leather dress is terrific! I’ve never owned one but if I did I’d like it to be cut just like this one. Love how you styled it! Have a great weekend Nancy!

    I like the outfit most with that fabulous scarf added. It brings the colour scheme of the rest in a very seasonal balance. Love it! Have a great weekend Nancy. Love, Lieske

    Nancy, you sexy thing! You look amazing in this leather dress. I absolutely love it and the green cardigan and scarf add a touch of elegance to the edgy feel of the leather. I am so glad that I am not the only one who keeps things hanging around my closet for years unworn. I hate to get rid of things. You never know when you will want to wear them again! I love your boots, too!

    I agree that it is fun to create new outfits with older pieces. You did a great job of showing options with this dress. I like the scarf.

    There are issues with pleather as well since it is really plastic and doesn’t decompose like leather will. That said, I’ve been a vegetarian most of my life. I’d be vegan if I could give up eggs but that is the one thing I still eat.

    I’ve had a leather jacket, a leather skirt, leather shoes, a leather purse…but never a leather dress! So cool Nancy, and I love how you styled it, especially the extra details in those tights!

    I’m glad you pulled that dress out and are styling it, again. It’s something you bought years ago, I don’t think there’s any harm wearing it. You’ve really softened its look up with the scarf and cardigan. So nice!

    I have seen more leather dresses online lately and seperates. This looks sensational on you, fits to a T! It is fun to experiment and try different combinations of our clothes. I love the way you belted that scarf!

    Such an awesome dress, and such great stuyling with the long line cardigan and scarf. I’m in two minds about leather. I only have one leather jacket but it’s so much superior to any pleather jackets I’ve seen. And what about shoes and boots? xxx

      Yes indeed. Because I bought leather boots a few months ago without even thinking! So I am not sure what to think of it.

    You always style your pieces so wonderfully. I think it’s good for our brains to do this. And belting that scarf that way…pure brilliant. I need to do that now.

    Wow, you are a knockout in that leather dress, Nancy!! I know what you mean about animal products, but leather is so luscious–and it lasts forever! But you are right that faux leather is a pretty good substitute. I love the way you belted the plaid over your coat–great style!

    Happy holidays, my friend,

    The dress looks really so good on you Nancy , sometimes it is right to put things away for a time and then play with them in a different way. As for the leather , very much a personal choice. I am vegetarian but I do wear leather, both clothing and always leather shoes. The faux leather has its own share of problems too.
    Many thanks for the link up, enjoy your weekend Nancy.

      Yes I know but somehow real leather doesn’t appeal to me as it used to do. I guess there is nothing wrong with being aware is there Jill.

    Gorgeous dress! Glad you rediscovered it… I don’t buy “outfits” either! I regularly see wardrobes built with outfits that have no cohesive style or versatility!

      Yes that’s it! Why not be creative ourselves. Although I know , from when I was working, that a lot of women can’t choose outfits.
