I absolutely love leather and refuse to buy anything made out of pleather (fake leather). Usually I find all my leather items at thrift stores, so before anyone starts making a fuss about animal rights, I am recycling. Leather is extremely durable and perfect for the fall weather.
I have found a lot of leather purses at thrift stores. The three purses are Fossil, vintage Coach and vintage Dooney & Bourke (from left to right). These purses are quite expensive at their original retailers, but I luckily found them for about $5 each at various thrift stores. I have had them for about three years now and will last me for another good decade.
Leather bomber jackets are in. Not the black pleather studded ones… different colored bomber jackets are a must. This suede leather bomber was another thrift store find, also costing around $4 (Copper Key brand). I have worn this jacket countless of times, and it is still in mint condition.
Leather gloves are also perfect for the bitter weather. My friend gave these to me as a gift, and they are durable during the winter. I know that these were bought from Nordstrom, but thrift stores always have various gloves to choose from.
You may be wondering what thrift store I go to. Unique Thrift Stores are my favorite. They are scattered through Cleveland and are half off on Mondays! Definitely a bargain (and a half). Happy thrifting!
