I Love Leather!

It’s getting almost cold where I live and I’m starting to wear some winter clothes. One item I like is leathers especially those that have that couture touch.

The leather jacket and low rise pants that I am wearing today comes from Ranena Olivier Couture. I just love the design and also this colour which is a rather unique and delicate colour for leathers.

Ranena Olivier Couture – Leather Jacket and Pants in Grape

The jacket has a high rise collar that adds to its elegance with rather big cuffs at the end of the sleeves. It also comes with a belt which I wore today but it also works if you don’t wear the belt, keeping the jacket very simple. Then you can wear your own belt at a low position to give it a totally different image with a more casual look. The pants come in long pants as well as short pants but since it’s getting cold, I thought the long version will be more suited to be worn now.

Although I hardly ever wear belly rings, I decided to wear this sweet belly ring that has a star hanging from it that comes from Twisted and Spoiled. It’s colour changing so it can be added as a cute addition to looks where your belly button will be showing.

I also matched up a pair of big sunglasses from DeLa. This comes in 6 different colours with 4 lens colours each and you get ones that you wear over your eyes as well as one that can be worn on your head, as I am doing here. What I loved about this is that it is attached to your nose when worn over your eyes but the one that you wear on your head is attached to your mouth. This means that when the sunglasses are not covering your eyes, you don’t have to worry about your prim eye lashes being removed. Of course, you can re-attach the sunglasses to your mouth yourself but all the more better if it’s all done for you!

A Cool Rider’s Jacket For Ladies

My regular readers will know by now that I LOVE rider’s jackets in RL and in SL. These are one item I cannot go without buying if I see a cool one on the market. So….here I go again!

I found a cool rider’s jacket designed for ladies from a store called “B11” in Japan. It seems Japanese stores tend to have lots of nice rider’s jackets which is quite understandable with all the motorcycles in Japan. Most of the popular motorcycles companies such as Suzuki, Honda, Kawasaki are all Japanese companies. So go figure.

There were several colour variations including the usual black and also one in a leopard pattern which did, I must say, intrigued me as it was different. But I still wanted it to look like a rider’s jacket and a leopard skin pattern was just a bit too “girly” for my ideal of what rider’s jackets should look like so I settled for a red one, which, surprisingly was my very first red! It was still different from the ones I have as most of them were black.

This jacket is a very slender jacket that could be worn easily even with skirts. In fact, I like wearing these leather jackets with skirts…which reminds me, I must try that styling here sometime. But for today, I went in a very “conservative” direction wearing the jacket with a pair of leather pants from DeLa.

If you are looking for cool leather pants, DeLa is a good place to start as these pants come in eight colour variations which is quite unusual for leather pants. These eight are also divided up into four each to form two sets of fat packs for those who embrace a great love for leathers. This one I wore is “silver” although it does look black. The one labelled “black” has a much darker black colour. I could have gone with that one too but I thought this silver one will give me a slightly softer look compared to a bold red + black.

This time, I wanted to wear the jacket more as a fashion item rather than for a look that was more appropriate for practical riding so I matched it with black boots from Shiny Things that has some heels but without wearing the calf prims. This way, I won’t have to worry about my boot prims coming out of my pants while it still looks like I am wearing boots.

I received some nice compliments in this look……..so I guess I will just keep on increasing my rider’s jacket collection. *sighs*
