Leather & Sparkle

Hi Ladies,

I have been so excited to post on the new YLF,  so here is my celebratory outfit!

I have a function coming up soon and this was the end result of a little play in closet.
What do you think.?  

Blouse : Suzanne Grae 
Skirt : Suzanne Grae
Booties:  Django & Juliette

I added the polka dot clutch to add some softness and fun.

Thanks for looking:)

xxx Deborah

    Deborah, you always look so beautiful and sophisticated. I love the combination of leather and sparkle. The addition of the polka dot clutch is a brilliant stroke!

    So chic! I agree with Debora, you exude sophistication! Fab!

    I think your 'play in the closet' was very successful! I love how the toughness of the leather is softened by the sparkle in your blouse. The booties are gorgeous and polka dots are always fun (that's probably why I love them)!

    Kelly took the word I was thinking.  Your outfits always have a bit of edge and are also very sophisticated.

    I just love your refined yet edgy style. The combination of the leather and the tank is a nice juxtaposition. It's all black but not at all oppressive, there is a lightness to the look. Super inspiring!

    Well, for someone not so keen on sleeveless tops, this is an adventurous and FAB outfit Deborah!
    That skirt I am really loving on you- great length and seems to 'go' with everything.
    The dotty clutch is THE perfect touch for the outfit, and I wonder how your new white jacket would look added on top for a cooler day?

    Such a sophisticated outfit Deborah!  Love the leather skirt and the sparkly top together.

    Thanks and I am glad you like this.  The desciptors, sophisticated and edgy are music to my ears as I think that it really what I am aiming for in my wardrobe.

    Lyn, I have submitted and I think come around to the sleeveless 'thing'.  I do like sleeveless but I worry about my upper arms...so I have decided I will just have to get them toned.  And great minds think a like... i can't wait to try the white jacket with this.

    Deb, I know your clothes-you couldn't go wrong(even if you wanted:-))playing in your closet!!! Fab pairing, again.
    Now about the sleeveles thing...
    I don't see anything wrong here- but  it's my most dreaded frump factor, esp when  picties are taken. I cannot leave bare my upper arms---never again in my life!!!!(and have some broad shoulders, too:-((). I did this mistake  on my 20 years college reunion evening ball-...I felt like a million bucks and didn't knew about that issue then... but was  soooo sooo horrified to see me in picties taken close, at the table, when not my jacket on:-((((....
  • Deborah replied 7 years ago
    Oh Lyn, I bet you think your arms are much worse than they are.  Sometimes I think the wrong angle in a photograph just shows parts of us not at their best. Having said that, I fear the exact same thing.

    This is superb!  I love the black on black, the leather and sparkle, and those booties.  Perfect!

    How about elegant and edgy just for some variety? Love your style!
  • Archer replied 7 years ago
    Wow - you are a great ad for Suzanne Grae. I will give it a look.  The outfit is definitely sophisticated with a touch of attitude (edge I guess). Looks fabulous. SG - tomorrow.
  • amiable replied 7 years ago
    Wow!  YLF!  This is sophisticated and edgy perfection - just like everyone's saying.
  • Joy replied 7 years ago
    Deborah, you are the star of the Elegant Eclectics.  I love this outfit on you!  
    I know what you mean about the upper arms, but yours look just fine in your photos.

    You gorgeous thing you!!!
  • siniestra replied 7 years ago
    edgy, sophisticated , gorgeous!! I love your taste in fashion def an inspiration  to many women including me ofcourse >_<
  • texstyle replied 7 years ago
    This looks stunning - or I should just say YOU look stunning. I really love how you always have unique pieces but they feel so natural on you. I also love how your hair looks.
  • Kalli replied 7 years ago
    Wow. Definitely loving the black on black! Those booties are so awesome! I'm loving the new forum!

    Wow! I love this. The booties just finish it and the clutch is unexpectedly playful. Speechless!
