Leather Weather: Vegan Edition

One of my Best Besties is Vegan and for many being Vegan also means that they will no longer wear or use anything made with animal products. The cool weather to me means it is time to start breaking out the leather, and if you are Vegan there are so many amazing Leather Like options

I am so in love with this  Faux Leather Motorcycle Jacket from Zara and at $59.99 it is a phenomenal buy.

You all know I am such a Zara addict and they really have so many great Faux Leather pieces, so I may sound redundant but it is only because I own and believe in their products.

Lucchese Boots

Years ago I worked in a great store called Efrem. Efrem sold the coolest Pelle Pelle Jackets, Al Beres belts, the most gorgeous Robert Comstock leather and of course cowboy boots, boy oh boy did we sell cowboy boots! It was the height of the cowboy boot craze in the early nineties and this store was the store you went to for cowboy boots on Long Island. We sold the most sought after boots from  Justin , Tony Lama or Larry Mahan but if you wanted to make a cowboy boot statement you bought a pair of Lucchese's.
Lucchese was one of the premier handmade boot makers of that time. 
I have always thought of Lucchese strictly as a cowboy boot company, but while going through October's Bazaar I stumbled across a gorgeous boot, Prada, Jimmy Choo, I thought, but when I looked further it was Lucchese. Right then and there I had to go to  Lucchese.com to see what I have been missing all of these years, and I am obsessed with these all of these amazing boots!

                                                                  Maria ( this is the pair from Bazaar)

I am so utterly obsessed with this boot!!

Old School

Last year I just had to have the Stan Smiths and now the Gazelle's. After seeing the Adidas Gazelle's on J Crew, I just had to have them, I love the classic navy suede paired with a pair of jeans and a cozy sweatshirt or sweater, classic Effortless Everyday Style perfection!

Moto Boot

Obsessing over this Moto Boot from Rag & Bone, I love the more refined style they have, compared to some of the chunkier styles out there.

I would pair them with this fair isle sweater from J Brand, this vest from James Perse, and these black distressed jeans from Frame.

Denim Junkie-Fall Organizing

Somehow the change of seasons always prompts closet organization. My jeans needed to be sorted through desperately. As much as I try to purge my jeans regularly, my denim collection just seems to get bigger and bigger and my closet smaller and smaller. I needed to figure out a way to organize my jeans and to maximize the small space allotted for them in my closet. 
This is what I came up with...
Non-Slip Hangers
While I have been using these space saving, garment safe hangers in the rest of my closet for years, I had yet to switch my jeans over from the bulky wooden hangers they were hanging on.
I was able to hang two pairs of jeans side by side of each hanger, which balanced the hanger out beautifully so the hangers all hang effortlessly straight, and also maximized the small hanging space I have for my jeans.

I bought my Non-Slip hanger at Costco, but you can find them anywhere Target, Amazon, HSN, to name a few.

Sporty Chic

We all do it, we all either stay in our workout clothes all day running errands and driving the kids around, or just automatically throw them on because we don't feel like shoving our asses into a pair of skinny jeans. When we think of workout clothes we think of that faded pair of black yoga pants that we have had for years. But workout wear is evolving big time, and is not only for working out, it is no longer a fashion faux pas to be seen in your workout clothes in the middle of the afternoon, but is now a major fashion statement.

The Track Pant is a huge trend this fall, pair them with a cool pair of slip ons, a running sneaker, your favorite bootie, or even a heel and not only are you comfortable but totally chic too.
I love this pair from J Crew, perfect for everyday with this TOPSHOP sweater and these Adidas Superstar's for day

Or for Night with  a sexy blouse like this one from Nasty Galand a great shoe like these from Schutz.

I also love all of these from NSF, Gap, TOPSHOP, J Crew, Zara, Old Navy, and Vince

Denim Junkie: Levi's

Years and years ago the only jeans I wore were recycled Levi's. I had a perfectly curated stack of recycled Levi's, unfortunately over the years I wasn't smart enough to keep my collection of Levi's intact. I have either cut them into shorts or given them away. All summer long I have lived in my Levi's cutoffs, and now going into the fall I have been obsessed with trying to find that perfect pair of jeans. Now rather than going to Ebay for a pair of broken in pre-owned jeans, which is usually my go to for Levi's, I went straight to the source, Levi's.com, and came up with two great pairs of jeans.
I love a skinny boyfriend jean and this pair is perfect, soft, distressed, comfy, on sale....
Order a size up if you want a slouchier look.

Boyfriend is always a wardrobe staple for me and this pair is boyfriend heaven.....
