Go Ahead and Fake It

If you're like me you like the look of leather pants but are not quite sure if they are office appropriate. It's not that they are not allowed in my office, it's that they seem incredibly over-the-top considering the median outfit everyone else wears; from t-shirts and jeans, to pretty dresses, to the more formal business attire. And here on the west coast the weather doesn't quite dip low enough to justify the use of pants made out of a special material. And let's not even discuss the incredible price tag some of them seem to run at — at least $1,000...for pants! 

Behold the two word solution:: waxed leather. They fake leather incredibly well, but when seen up close they are just incredibly dark black denim with a slight sheen to them. They wear just like leather pants because they are typically made in very stretchy materials, but the price tag is much more budget friendly. 

I've been fishing for a pair of moto leggings with ankle and hip zippers for months and am über happy to have finally found a lovely pair. Having already been an evangelist for AG Jeans' ability to fit my booty, I was smitten when they sent me over this pair from AG's fall collection — I think I literally squealed with delight, if we're being totally honest —since they are fast becoming one of my favorite brands for denim based on the fact that they just fit.


  1. They look fabulous! Love your blog. Great fall look - I've been loving this weather shift.

  2. May I ask your camera type ?
