Happy Friday. Judging by this title you already know we are talking about more fall essentials, leather goods. We have since evolved from our classic ensembles, such as classic sweater & denims to now chic silhouette of leathers. Especially leather pants!
Now before you chop my head off leather has always been thing. More consciously, I understand that folks have shy away from purchasing of leather goods due to slaughter of animals. I get it! Vegan leather has been prove to be more ethical. However, I find thrifting leather good works for me when it comes to affordable and sustainability. Recycling leather goods is the play! When it comes to shopping more sustainable, and ethical, I decided to back away from purchasing of new leather goods. Thus, my own focal point is to shop thrifted and or resold vintage leather goods Leather goods is in for the season. Definitely a new staple to look out for.
So in today’s post I am sharing my thrifted leather collections. Leather pants, purses, and jackets. Leather is definitely showing up for reason.
Fall Essentials1| Vintage Leather Pants
I love a pair of pants that can turn heads for the fall.
Let’s talk about wardrobe staples: leather pants. I found these genuine leather pants from vintage shop, called Flamingo Vintage Detroit for $50. I was so ecstatic when I came across these pant. Finding faux leather pants were on my wish list. However, to come across pre-owned genuine leather pants left me grabbing these pants off the rack so fast. I tried them on, size 14, and they fit like a dream.
After purchasing these pants I have worn them a few times. Fitting like glove, however a little tight in the inner thigh. Other than that I love these pants, a great alternative from denim jeans. Easily styled up and down.
Please note that the choice is yours, you can always switch out or go for faux leather option for your fall essentials
Anyway I styled these faux leather pants with thrifted H&M oversized cotton-blend button up top. I though cross tucking my shirt would create a sexy blousing effect. Next up I added a sun chain belt from Plume Vintage and my cute top handled bag from another vintage shop. Lastly, to complete the look are pair of cute sandal heels for those warmer fall nights.

During my thrifting journey I stumbled across this long red leather jacket from my favorite thrift store, Value World. This jacket is everything, outside my various shades of leather jackets. This jacket is so bold and very becoming in which made it very easy to style.
This jacket is simply everything. It has the right amount room for layering. Can you believe it only cost me $20?
Now for this look I wanted to feel like I was walking around in Soho , New York. I paired this bold red leather jacket with a knitted pullover from H&M. I was actually looking for a white turtleneck in my closet, however I don’t own one. So this pullover work very well. Next I added my thrifted Wrangler jeans I distressed on the side. I wanted them to be like Maison Margiela Straight leg jeans. Lastly pair it with faux snakeskin boots and vintage Dooney & Burke from vintage shop, Livin Vintage.
