    I love these ideas for introducing a feeling of fall into my wardrobe. I do wear leather shoes, leather belts and bought my first black leather almost biker jacket for this season.
    Thanks for all the hard work it takes to create the idea for a Fashion Friday for our readers, follwed by more work to find the images and then links that help us to find the cloths that we like for “the look”.

    Think of all the animals who were killed to give you “the look!”
