Grabbing a cup of Coffee on my Way

The last time I featured these leather pants, it was styled for a very different occasion: the Gaultier exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. It was "fitting" and also only possible to wear for a few hours as the corset was -negative- skin tight.

Though, as leather pants are the de rigueur bottoms of the season, I'm trying to work them into all facets of life.

Now it's off to the day job (which has something to do with handbags;).

How to do????

A silk, dove colored, button down top with gold buttons is incredibly sophisticated giving the leather a professional slant.

The navy cardigan adds that preppy goodie two-shoes flavor that I love to trick people with.

Then top it off with pink pearls and sparkly earrings (since it's the holidays).

Heels would be great with this outfit, but it's freezing in NYC AND the sidewalks are icy!!!

Note: sometimes comfort, like not falling on your derrière, is more fashionable than the perfect shoe. Though, I love these Chuckies Pointy brown loafers in any case.

and that's How to do: Leather Goes to Work
