I recently discovered a new app for my iPad, Paper by 53. Embarrassingly, I stayed up until 2am playing with it the first night I downloaded it. Since I was also creating a wish list on Pinterest, I decided to just sketch a few of my favorite things. I’m a Capricorn, therefore a December baby, so the Holiday season has always been double the excitement for me. See how accurate I am by going here or any of the links below each sketch.
Leather is badass. And also usually carries a badass price tag to match. It may be an investment, but it is and always will be a style staple. In addition, the more wear a leather motorcycle jacket gets, the better it usually looks. So there, don’t feel guilty handing over the dough because you can wear the crap out of it!
These photos are from last weekend while in Kansas City once again for the second wedding there this month! It took a long time for me to find this leather jacket and it ended up being a gift from my…well to quote Carrie from Sex and the City, my “manfriend” last Christmas. It was love at first sight on the floor of All Saints and I have been obsessed ever since! Also, fingerless gloves are an added ‘badass’ touch.

I was inspired by this picture of Charlize Theron on Pinterest. She looks amazing, yet she is simply wearing all black. All the pieces she’s wearing are very classic and can definitely be smart investments to your wardrobe. Plus, black leather is going to be big this Fall and will never truly be ‘out’.
