AFD Fashion Fixation: Leather sleeves

    OMG, I'm so sorry. I thought things would have wound down by now, but apparently not. The weather in NYC was miserable and I ended up getting sick (bronchitis, to be exact), just in time for what could be a potentially an 80+ hour work week. FANTASTIC. Needless to say, I'm finding it difficult to find time to blog. Hopefully I can catch up soon, but for now, a quick post to hold you over.

  Now on to the real topic at hand. After watching NYFW, I was inspired by all the leather details in a majority of the shows. So much so, I have become much more obsessed with leather sleeves on an otherwise non-leather item piece.

   The ultimate leather-sleeved piece:

Burberry, $1995US.

    I saw a version of the above from a past season in a consignment shop in NYC last weekend. It was AMAZING.

    Other great options:

Zara, $139CA (no longer available on the US website).
Helmut Lang @Shopbop, $695.

Style Stalker (faux leather sleeves) @Revolveclothing,  $109.

   A few giveaways coming up in the next few weeks, if I can ever get to writing up some posts. Stay tuned!

Very sorry to hear that you have been sick. Hope you feel better.

This style is really cool and sexy. I remember wearing something like this in high school.

I love leather sleeves too but don't think I can pull it off. Love the first Burberry trench...tdf!

Gah hope you feel better, you're the third person I know with bronchitis!  Those leather sleeves are sooo cool I can totally see you rocking them.  And despite what Elle says below I think she can rock them too!
