Splurge vs Steal Leather Dress

The Fall season that is quickly approaching will be the first one I’m spending living outside of California (meaning: there will actually be a change in weather). I’m very excited to layer sweaters, scarves, jackets, the whole thing. One thing I’m not excited for is that the nature of Fall/Winter clothes being warmer makes them so much more expensive. Gorgeous leathers and cashmeres are fun to wear but not as fun on your wallet. I saw this Alexander McQueen leather dress online and absolutely swooned over it. It’s the perfect power-dressing piece! Luckily Zara carries a faux leather version that is a fraction of the cost.
