i’m wearing: h&m polka dot peplum (my first threadflip purchase), h&m faux leather pants (last year but these are similar), target belt, handbag heaven clutch, michael kors watch, various bracelets and bgbgeneration pumps (not shown but available here).

i totally remember the first time i saw this top. it is the top that started my love affair with the peplum trend. i first came across it on pinterest (you can follow me here), and of course it was sold out everywhere. so when i saw this one on threadflip months later, i just couldn’t pass it up. another trend i can’t get enough of is faux leather. if you would have told me a few years ago that i would be wearing leather pants (real or faux), i never would have believed you.

so kristen from bon bon rose girls and i thought it would be fun to have a little style challenge to show how we wear our faux leather skinnies. i had the pleasure of meeting her when we both attended the cabi spring 2012 fashion show. she was the cutest little pregnant lady i’ve ever seen and now she is one hot momma of two rocking her faux leather leggings! be sure and visit her blog to get all of her ootd deets!

    You look awesome! It’s a rocker chick look but with a feminine vibe. Great combination!

    I can see why you were listing over that top! The issue I have with faux leather is that you can’t clean it. All you can do is wipe clean the exterior…. So wear it carefully πŸ™‚

    Love how you ladies styled them (obsessed with peplum too). Only question with faux leather is how does it breath. Have heard horror stories about the pants.

      That’s why I love the pair I got…They have knit panels, so they aren’t as hot!

    isn’t Threadflip so nice? Lucky you to find the top! It does make you look so skinny. And leather pants-the most amazing invention I think. I love them and they look great on both of you!

    You both look amazing! I love how you added a pop of color with the belt. Every time I see people in leather skinnies like these I vow that I need them for my wardrobe….I have yet to add them but really need to now. Such a fun item to wear!

    WOW, you both are rocking the the faux leather skinnies. I never thought I’d be wearing them either but recently while in H & M saw them, tried them on and bought them. Now I’m loving mine too http://www.flickr.com/photos/39715038@N00/8421979915/in/photostream
