Ringing in 2012 with Leather, Leopard & Fur

Not sure how this happened but I am wearing all my favorite trends for 2011 in one outfit - leather, leopard & fur.
LEATHER: Whether on panels, pockets, trims, lapels or cuffs, a little leather can make a big sartorial statement. This sassy fitted skirt has leather panel inserts right down the middle, which not only gives you that sophisticated look but a slimming effect as well.  
LEOPARD: From shoes and handbags to dresses and pants, you can’t go wrong with this look. My favorite of all are leopard shoes. Animal printed shoes work with just about any outfit whether it is flats or heels. They are the perfect print and color combination for that LBD or a simple day-to-day ensemble.
FUR: A splendidly fitting faux fur jacket or coat is a classic and always in style, I've had this one since my college days. There is just something gloriously retro about fur that makes it stand the test of time. It’s one of those magical pieces that’s chic, elegant and lady like, yet fun and edgy.
I hope these 3 trends will continue to be in style in 2012; but even if they don't, I will probably be sporting them on my blog anyways =) Thank you for sticking with me this year, friends. Here's to another year of blog friendships!

I just created a Facebook, "Like" my page for blog updates and sales deals that I find!
