    Oh, I love. And I’m slightly jealous of your fan. I had the sudden desire to get one this past spring, but amazingly enough I just couldn’t find one. I was even looking on Etsy, but nothing seemed quite right. (It’s one of those situations, if you aren’t looking for it it’ll be everywhere. Never fails.)

    Hope you had a happy Halloween!

    Wonderful costume!!! And the photos are so neat….great job! This year I went as Spider Queen and had a blast at 4 costume parties we attended throughout Halloween weekend; my scepter was a spider-webbed black battle axe and that got a lotta’ comments, haha.

    Oh, and I actually purchased my very first pair of leather pants the other day- wonders never cease eh??? They’re a buttery dark chocolate brown leather and fit to a “t”…I may put up a pic of them on my blog under a post about Preppies shaking things up a bit…but won’t do this until I totally surprise James with these. Planning to wear them without a comment and see when he notices. He loved my old long brown leather skirt I had back in our college days but eventually this got to be quite worn out looking so leather pants will be a big surprise no doubt!

    All the best to you from here!

      Hey Lac! Sounds like you had a great Halloween too. Thank you for your kind comment!

      DO let me know James’ reaction to your leathers…I can only imagine how pleased he’ll be! Leather always goes over…skirts, pants, shorts…it just begs to be touched and only the brave tend to wear it.

    Thanks V and I will…heh, heh, I really think he’ll be bowled-over with the leather pants wearin’!

    I have two great leather skirts I love wearing but they’re a bit more “conservative” in styling: a camel one that’s straight & to the knee and then a black one that’s a little longer and flares out in ruffled-styling at the hemline. Once it gets colder I’ll be absolutely loving wearing these a lot especially with alla’ the tall leather boots I keep collecting somehow. Am thinking of writing-up that blog post under something like, “Beyond the Belt, Purse and Shoes- Preppies Wear Leather Too” and feature the pants in it plus one of the skirts and then some examples from Ralph Lauren, etc- FUN!

    Big hug to you too!

    I love you Halloween look! You look gorgeous! By the way, the pic of you and your husband together are awesome. :) I’m really enjoying your posts from MNG by Mango Barcelona trip! :)
