DIY a little leather

DIY a little leather
If I could add leather to every piece of clothing I own, I would be in heaven.  It’s such a luxurious  textile that can turn a classic into an edgy and an edgy into a classic.  When I picked up this beautiful stretch lemon wool blended twill that reminds me of a more structured neoprene, I knew It would look great with something black and a little tougher so leather it was.

    I agree, you should be a designer, and I'm not talking Project Runway. Your skill is larger than that!!! Nyc fashion week 100%.
