LPA Loves: Trans-seasonal Leather

Is it just me or is leather THE ultimate trans-seasonal fabric? Even in London it’s occasionally to sweaty to wear it in Summer and during the cold Winter months leather isn’t as insulating as one might think because it’s exceedingly difficult to layer. Despite my penchant for all things preppy and floral-related, I’m extremely partial to a bit of leather and the fact that it’s been a perma-trend for about six seasons now makes me very happy indeed. So far I’m the proud owner of a leather skirt, shorts, one leather collared top, a leather jacket and about a zillion leather handbags and pairs of boots. This season I’m hoping to branch out into tees, dresses and trousers, ideally in unusual colours! Here are a few of the pieces I’m eyeing up at the moment…

LPA Loves: Lucy Choi London

Like a lot of girls, I’m a sucker for a good pair of stilettos. My footwear policy tends to be “no pain, no gain” although this particular brand actually prides itself on making comfortable heels. And yes, such a thing does exist. I know because I’ve tried on a fair few pairs of Lucy Choi London stillies and as soon as payday (or student loan day) comes around I’ll be taking several home. Despite only having been going a couple of seasons, Lucy Choi London has already bagged itself two of THE most coveted stockists around – Matches and My Wardrobe – and been featured numerous times in Vogue, Grazia and Tatler to name but a few. Then again, given that Lucy Choi is in fact the niece of high heel legend Jimmy Choo it’s no great surprise that she’s a dab hand at creating seriously lust worthy shoes.

1) Snake Print Aster Shoes, £195, click here to buy
2) Glitter Rose Pumps, £195, click here to buy
3) Colour Block Wysteria Sandals, £235, click here to buy
4) Black Arkose Peep-Toe Boots, £270, click here to buy

Snakeprint and glitter and bows, OH MY! Admittedly if you’re a trainer wearing kinda gal Lucy Choi London probably wont be your cup of tea but I’m not so looking at her collection is like high heel heaven for me. I adore the elegance of Lucy’s delicate designs with their ladylike pointed toes and slender heels. And the fact they’re not stupidly expensive is just the icing on the cake!
