Quilted leather vest

While there may have been some hesitation and uncertainty at first, it is no more. This quilted leather vest is awesome, and you'll be seeing a lot of it this winter.

I know the current leather accent trend right now is sleeves, but I'm going to embrace the idea that the (sort of) opposite looks just as cool.

  2. I think that leathery things in all forms look good. Besides, this leather vest will probably prove to be much more useful to you than a shirt with leather sleeves! And it's so pretty and looks so high-quality!

    You and your perfect maxi skirts. :)

  36. Ooooh, I've been on the hunt for a quilted leather vest for a while, they're not quite as hard-core biker-ish as a regular leather vest but add just the best finishing touch to an outfit. Yours is gorgeous, I can see why you couldn't resist buying it!

  39. A leather vest is totally cool, especially a quilted one. It's like a rocker take on outerwear. Last year Coach had brown leather puffers and I wanted one so much. They were so expensive but so cool.

    You should like totally just forget to give this snake bracelet back. I still love snake jewelry.
