Leather! The Good Buy/Good-Buy Book

outfits with leather

And the fantastic theme is : Leather!

Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!

What is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book about?

It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!

So let’s start with The GoodBuy/Good-Bye Book: Leather!

First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edgemy co host and blogging friend

My red leather cowgirl boots are absolutely a Good Buy (although they were gifted to me by Country Outfitter, but I would have bought them for myself if they weren’t gifted). They are super comfortable and make me feel like a complete badass cowgirl chic! And I mean, red leather. You can’t go wrong!

This is the fabulous Sheila of Ephemera

gold colored leather trousers

I bought these rose-gold leather trousers new (a rare thing for me – I am 95% second-hand), at Free People in Portland, Oregon, back in September 2017 for $129.00 US, and I’ve worn them about a dozen times. I fondly refer to these as my Space Pants (made from Space Cows, of course). I love showing them off to my coworkers – yes, I wear them to work!

This is,well….uhm….these boots are from Chez Mireille Fashion Travel Mom

You can see how she wears them at Shelbee’s blog!

The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book

I waited for years for this leather jacket! I wanted biker jacket edge, but not the harsh black against my no-longer-spring-chicken complexion! When I found this one, there was no hesitation! And now our weather is finally cooling off enough that I can pop it on in the morning. YAY!

Of course we happy to have Jodie of Jodie’s Touch of Stylefashion blogger in cool outfit

I included a photo of myself wearing some faux leather pants. I am a huge fan of leather pants because the pet hair doesn’t stick on them…ha ha.

This is my fellow Dutch blogger friend Sonja of BeautySoMe

cool trousers for our fashion seriesleather jacket from decades ago

I bought my first leather jacket at the age of 14! Because of the Grease movie! At 19 (photo) I bought one brown jacket of my first paycheck! I had several beautiful pieces, but I was a wild child… and some of them didn’t make it till the end of a Rock concert! 🙈Glad I am not going out anymore so the black pants I am showing you is 5 years old!

This is cool looking Betsy of Natty Gal

leather black sleeveless top

I received this leatherette top in a Stitch Fix box a couple years ago and love it!  A leather top is bit out of my style comfort zone but the classic cut makes it easy to wer and I love the bit of edge it adds to an outfit.  Thanks for coordinating and have a good week!

And here is my leather!Leather green jacket

I bought this one 3 years ago and I love this one. I wear it in summer to with the collar of! I now see that I wore this dress before. Haha.

November’s theme will be: Silk!

And now hop over to Shelbee’s blog to see what the other fashion bloggers are wearing!

Send your photo with a few sentences if it is a Good Buy or a Good-Bye and we will put you in the spotlights! Send it please before the 10th of each month to shelbeeontheedge@gmail.com or to info@nancysfashionstyle.com

    So many great leather looks! This was one of my favorite themes! Although, I seem to say that about every theme we do. LOL I love all of the looks submitted! Remember to add Silk as our theme for November at the end of the post, my friend!

      Haha, and the stupid thing was that when I woke up the first thing I thought was: Did I write silk as our theme for November! And then I forgot about it! Thanks love!

    I’m not really into leather, as in clothing, but I can certainly appreciate a good leather jacket. If I’d had to contribute something, it would be a good buy: my lovely orange leather jacket. You’re looking like a true rock chick in your outfit! xxx

    Love the looks! And thank you for the link to my blog! I want so many pieces here… The rose gold pants, the red boots, the faux leather shell… Oh, heck! I’d be happy if any of them ended up in my closet!

    I think every girl needs a good moto jacket in her closet…they are perfect for layering and add just the right amount of edge. I love that yours has a detachable collar, the faux fur makes it unique! xo
