Once I Was a Cow, but Now I'm a Dress

I have a wild love for beautiful leather. 
Leather + Dress = Perfection
Perhaps its the dreary weather, but I'm certainly on the prowl for the perfect one.
These are my faves.

Asos Asymmetrical Leather T-shirt Dress, $85US
The color of this dress is undeniably delicious and the asymmetric bodice in contrasting suede gives an already hip dress an extra funky edge. 
Best part? On sale!

French Connection Laser Cut Leather Shift Dress at Asos, $260US
French Connection always gets it right, and this leather sleeveless shift 
is no exception in creamy winter white with scallop hem 
and striking laser-cut pattern. 
As timeless as any LBD!

One more from Asos! Premium Leather Cutwork Dress in Cobalt Blue, $120US
Are you kidding me with this? It took 3+ close-up looks to believe it is leather!
The delicate all-over cutwork creates a unique pattern and the 
slight A-line silhouette is gorgeous as a dress or a tunic. 
Left the best for about that color?

YSL at Bergdorf Goodmans, $4490US
I'm never-endingly amazed by YSL. This scrumptious eggplant magenta shade,
in a perfectly seamed sheath silhouette with delightful cap sleeves? 
YSL like? Nope. It's love for sure...

To be honest, I'm not loving this option. But I cannot stop staring 
at the photo—the mood evoked by those boots alone. Wow.
Stylistic simplicity at its finest.
As for the color of this dress? Bleh.

YSL Square Neck Leather Dress at Nordstrom, $5100US
Last, but certainly NOT least is this fabulous YSL LBD!
Classic and timeless, quality and style with square neckline and cap sleeve. Fashionistas...we may just have our winner!

Which would you choose?

Disclaimer: I certainly joke and have some fun but I do hope I haven't offended any animal activists in the process with this post. I love animals, I save strays, I donate firstly and regularly to animal-saving charities. I try to do my part and draw my line where I'm most comfortable. Hope you understand.

  5. All I can say is its a WOW!!!

    I would surely chose the ASOS brown leather dress because of its unique design and the YSL eggplant magenta will also be on my lists.

    I love leather and their quality is undeniably long lasting and its worth every penny.
