A few tell-tale signs that fall is here are : the falling leaves, Starbuck's infamous pumpkin spice latte is being served again, colder weather and you suddenly start seeing leather everywhere, from magazines to stores all over.
I love leather. In fact, I can call myself a leather hoarder, lol! There is something about it that makes it so luxe. I do have a good collection of black leather pants but hadn't owned a leather slip-like dress, until now. Leather dresses can be intimidating. I agree that they can look harsh but this tough-girl ensemble can be versatile. You can blend leather into your everyday wardrobe simply by playing it down a little. A great example is this super cosy, fluffy cardigan I layered my look with. A pop of color softens the look and it's the perfect mix of edge and cute comfort.
