The leather trend is inescapable right now and it doesn’t look like it’s fading anytime soon. I’m probably the last one to get in on the action but as a vegan I’m careful with the fashion items I buy. In this day and age no one has to die for us to look good.

Polyvore is basically that but taken online and far more interactive.
