OOTD: Faux Leather Mini + Plaid Styling

So it looks like one of the most affordable items in my closet this year, is also the most versatile and most worn.  This plaid shirt from Forever 21 is definitely one of my better Fall purchases.  I have also discovered a love of H&M online, although I will say that I find their sizing is really off...so if you don't know your H&M size, don't buy online.  H&M stores in Miami do not accept online returns (yet), which is stupid, yes, but you will feel more stupid when you have a bag of clothes that don't fit and you can't return them in-store OR ship them back!

Anyway.

I love leather detailing for Fall.  Earlier this year I splurged on the Bailey 44 Dante dress - with faux leather paneling in the color 'port'  but I was determined to still get my leather fix in the form of a mini skirt.  I hunted for a quilted leather mini, but when that didn't turn up, I got this one from H&M instead.  I think it was $15. Ridiculous and surprisingly sturdy and good quality. It fits so cute.

The skirt fits a little high waisted so I tied the ends of the plaid shirt into a knot and away I went.  I can't seem to find it online anymore, but I do like this French Connection one as well - it fits very similar to mine (high waisted and fitted)










Don't forget to come out and see me at the Gap, Dadeland this Saturday from 3:00 - 5:00 PM - My readers get 40% off in store purchases whereas everyone else gets only 30%...Shhh. Don't tell anyone ;)
