Black and Tan

     Well, despite the seemingly serious threat of rain, I decided to chance it today by wearing my new suede H&M dress. That's right, a dress entirely constructed of bone-colored suede leather. Since the dress is rather short, I decided to wear it with thick black tights instead of the nude mesh tights I had originally planned on. Then I tied on my favorite bib necklace to dress the look up a little and to complement the tights. All in all, I was pretty pleased with the result:

     Wearing an all leather/suede outfit was a bit of a challenge, though. While supple, it wasn't super flexible, and any moisture/sweat would show up (and stay around) easily. And while I do like the scent of natural leather, having it hang around you all day can be a bit much. But as with any leather, it will flex, shape, and soften with further wear, and the new suede smell will soon disappear.
