Yves Saint Laurent Leopard-Print Ankle Boots - Worn before here with 3.1 Phillip Lim shorts and Marc Jacobs sweater and here with Alice + Olivia velvet leggings and Jimmy Choo clutch

Literature Noir Lambskin Leather Minidress in Black - Snagged off Gilt.com for $129 (Retail: $348)

I've really been into leather dresses lately so when I saw Gilt Groupe was having a sale feauturing Literature Noir I checked it out and this perforated leather tunic dress immediately caught my eye.  For $129 it was quite the snag and the leather is buttery soft.  I think the perforations soften up the tough look of the leather as well.  This is my first piece of clothing by Literature Noir, but it definitely won't be the last.  The quality is fabulous and the dress came with a slip lining.  You  have seen me in a cognac colored leather sleeveless dress by Vince, which was more vintage and mod looking.  This black  leather dress is definitely more edgy and a little sexy, but I think the loose fit keeps it from being too sexy and I like that.

I paired the Literature Noir leather dress with a pair of leopard print ankle boots by Yves Saint Laurent.  These are one of my favorite pairs of shoes.  The ocelot print is done so well and looks realistic.  They really are works of art so I can see why they orginally retailed for around $1700.  Good thing my boyfriend snagged them for me on sale.  You have seen me wearing them on the blog twice before outdoors, once with leggings and once with tights and shorts.  This is my first time wearing them with a dress and I like the overall result.
