Dure à cuir


Considering my latest purchases, one constant jumped out: most of them had a bit of leather.

Out of recent incursions in h&m, I got a leather jacket from the new collection. 

Honestly it was an impulse purchase and, judging from the recent drop of temperatures, one I won't be able to wear quite soon.

What drived me to get it was the colour between a light pink and beige, the mix of  materials (leather and suede), the fit with 3/4 sleeves, narrow shoulders and a reasonable price

I'm sure this little leather number will be in heavy use come warmer (and drier) weather.



This bag (again) from Gap (again!) joined my collection. It's a mix of canvas and leather with lots of pockets,  an adjustable strap, very functional. 
At the same occasion, I also got the long searched for trousers. 





And this sales find, a leather trimmed wrap skirt by Isabel Marant.

Ha ha Dahlia! Ne nous envie pas... L'hiver est tellement morose à Paris. On n'a que ça et la bouffe pour se distraire en ce moment!:))

Garderoben: I was honestly suprised to find it so late after the first days of sales !

If Jane: Oui, oui!

Thanks Prêt à Porter P! It is very practical! I've been wearing it non stop lately.

Thanks heart in a cage! I'm very glad I found it on discount as it was originally so expensive.

Great choices! The jacket reminds me of that camel Celine one that I loved. Love the skirt, too. You should know by now I'm a big leather fan :-)

Your buys are very cool - just edgy enough. Can't wait to see how you use that bag!

Thanks Ginta! It was worth waiting for the sales!

Thank you Koko! H&M has a knack for delivering clothes "inspired" by such and such.It's like a quizz game whenever I go there, I'm like: oh, this is so Chloé, so Wang...

Lin: Thanks!! You really sum up what I want! I've already wore the bag all past week! I'm so pleased with it.

onlycoolcats: Thanks!!

Fabulous buys! I saw that H&M jacket in store the other day and was thinking the same thing: oh, that's so Celine. ;-)

It is indeed a very well-made jacket.
