Armed leather

Hey girlie pies...

I can definitely feel the fall weather when I wake up in the morning. My bedroom is just filled with that crisp, cool breeze and shivers when I get out of bed. I know throughout the day it will warm up, but getting dressed in the morning has turned from short sleeves, to long sleeves and anything that will keep me warm.

I decided to pull out my armed leather grey top that I got from H&M early this year. Well.. I guess it's more of a pleather, but it still gives that pop of leather, without looking like I'm going to an ACDC concert. I absolutely love that leather has made it back to fashion full force, but wearing my leather pants to work, might just be crossing the line of  'work attire' in my office (I have to be careful with what I pick out), and unfortunately I don't want a Ross situation happen when I'm at work. lol (OMG remember that Friends episode?) So this top is a way that I can vamp up my leather-y look, but also stay work appropriate.

I paired this awesome shirt with my J Crew No 2 black pencil skirt, and also wore my black patent Steve Madden heels when I got to the office. I didn't feel I wanted any pop of color in this outfit because I wanted to make the sleeves the main focus. I did keep my make up simple and got that slight pop of color with my Cream cup M.A.C lipstick (my favourite.. I'm almost out *snif)

My second picture (WAY close up.. sorry), is mainly to update you on the Latisse. I've been on it a few weeks now and I've noticed that they are definitely starting to grow. Yes.. I do have mascara on, but because I have the blondest lashes, wearing mascara is definitely how I can tell. It's a very slight difference, but when my eyes are open, I can tell they are slightly longer because I can feel my lashes tickle my eyebrow bone.

Hope you lovely ladies have a fab day!!! I've also opened up my Instagram publicly, so feel free to check it out under melanieafong

Love always,

Love the outfit! That shirt looks good and I love the detail of the leather patches. Very edgy and chick.

You look fantastic, the sweater I would definitely try out myself, the skirt not so much as I am really short & not a fan of my butt, so me & pencil skirts are not friends & may never be. But you look incredible.

Please stop photographing your lashes - I am so envious, they are incredible! Have a fab start to your weekend. x
