StyleFile: Leather peplum trench

I finally had a chance to wear the leather trench coat that may in fact be a dress. I'm still not sure.  I was pretty close to wearing it with nothing underneath but it felt very....very what is the word I'm looking for...Julia Roberts ala Pretty Girl or perhaps a creepy flasher. I'm not there yet even though I consider myself a fashion risk taker. A thrift store fashion risk taker, that is. The prices are so affordable that it becomes very easy to experiment with random pieces of awesome.

Instead of going with a slip underneath, I went for a bright pink pop of color.

This is seriously the most buttery soft leather I have ever touched.

POW!! Look at all that color!

If I get bored with it, I can chop it using these haute dresses on Shopbop as inspiration.
