LEATHER IS FOREVER

When we conjure up early memories of leather in your wardrobe, maybe it’s the bomber jackets worn by WWII fighter pilots, or that cool black one with the all those zippers your True Fashionista punk rocker cousin had.  Leather has had its place in fashion since our forefathers figured that there are uses for the whole animal. Ancient wall paintings and artifacts dating back to 5000 B.C. indicate the use of leather for clothing purposes, and ancient Greeks developed tanning formulas to preserve their leather. Then the Romans discovered that leather makes for really fantastic, durable footwear.

KEEPING UP WITH PANT TRENDS

Fall is roaring back. There’s no ignoring all the orange merch in stores, and was that a cool breeze the other day? In our Florida digs, we were TOO excited about that one! It actually made us think about…pants! Those of us who get to deal with winter on a more personal basis know the importance of keeping a collection of two-legged True Fashionista wonders each season; in warmer environs they’re merely an option. Either way, it’s good to know what to look for this year to go with your Madden Girls and Vejas.
