I couldn't tell you which outfit I loved more. And amidst the vibrant intensity of Fall's color palette, I can't help but go old school and favor black on black. That second image of the embellished blouse paired with the leather maxi has my eyeballs popping out of my head. I mean...how bada** would you feel strolling into the office in that? It just knocks my socks off.

Now..to find a leather maxi knock off that doesn't look chintze. That is the question!
Any ideas dear readers?
