CapFABB Style Challenge: Leather

As I've mentioned before, I'm part of a great network here in D.C., the Capital Area Fashion and Beauty Bloggers, also known as CapFABB. Last week I got word that they'd be starting a regular style challenge and it was kicking off this week with leather! Despite being a crazy week both for my work and personal life, I was excited because it gave me an excuse to find ways to style the Tahari leather jacket I recently bought off Gilt Groupe.  If you asked my friends to describe me, they wouldn't use any of the words typically associated with leather -- tough, edgy, get the picture. But leather jackets are all the rage right now, and I really wanted one. My new Tahari is perfect because it has all of those characteristics, with a feminine, girly twist. Now how to wear it? I was up to the challenge.

Here it is styled three ways. Which is your favorite? 

Pushing the Ruffled Edge
Gap t-shirt, Paige Denim jeans, Zara belt,
Cole Haan mary-janes, Gap sunnies,
Kate Spade earrings, custom necklace 

 Leather & Luxury
Dolce & Gabbana dress, Zara pumps,
Kate Spade earrings

Town & Country
Zara turtleneck sweater, Target dress,
Sam Edelman loafers, Violet Boutique ring

Make sure to check the CapFABB site tomorrow for a summary of the best submissions.
