Faux leather has become a staple in my wardrobe and really one of my all time favorite fabrics to rock. And while leather may or may not have been a work option for you depending on the industry or type of job you have, I think today, with all the wonderful ways that leather, real and faux are being used, it is a perfect option for the office.
I originally was going to wear my blue faux leather top (seen here) with my perforated faux leather skirt (seen here & here) and a simple black blazer. But in the end I went with this Calvin Klein Marble Print Faux Leather Pleated Skirt (sold out/here in all black) for this weeks Fab Werk Wear challenge because on first look, it is not really obvious that the skirt is faux leather because of the marbelized print and it would be easy to rock it in even the most conservative of work environments.
And these are a few of the lower end "indulge" items in this years book. There is also a $425,000 Vanity Fair Academy Awards® Experience and a $475,000 House of Creed Bespoke Fragrance Journey which includes two first-class tickets to Paris, five star hotel stay, spa excursions, etc!
But getting back to reality and prices that my bank account can work with, there are also lots of affordable items that would make perfect gifts for your loved ones or selfie gifts ;).
Old Navy has always been one of my main spots for staple pieces but they have really been upping the game in recent times by offering super cute plus size pieces beyond the basics and crazy sales to boot.
Here are some looks put together from current stock that I love...need...want...
There's everything from animal print & stripes to skinny cords & chunky sweaters to sexy skirts & dresses! Lots of great pieces that come in a variety of colors (not all pictured) to mix and match and work all seasons.
What say you? Do you love...need...want these finds?
