Other than leather shoes or handbags, my experience with wearing leather (real or faux) is fairly limited (I think this is the only two other times - here and here - that I've done so recently, and one wasn't even really worn out). Leather just seems to have an edge and attitude that I can't seem to carry off. I'm so not a slightly menacing bad ass or a chic cool girl.
Like this dress and these pants which I adore? Price and occasion aside, never could I put either on and confidently walk out of the house, even though I don't think either piece would draw particular attention. So this jacket I'm wearing in this post that I got on super-sale? Just enough leather-ishness to make me feel kind of bad, while still sticking close to my real-life studious girl persona.
