Protective and Practical: Christian Louboutin Egoutina Spiked Boots.

I haven't been interested in a pair of knee high boots since 2007, but for these I'll make an exception.  Here's what I like about them, with the low heel you'll actually wear them a ton.  I hate buying an absurdly expensive pair of shoes just to look at them in my closet.  The grey suede is going to go with everything and the spiked toe will keep you safe if you turn down a dark ally at night.  Kidding.  But those spikes are lending an edge to an otherwise almost ladylike style.

Loving Leather: A sleeve, a pant leg and a hem walk into a bar.

Lately, I've been loving leather accents.  A leather sleeve or trim adds just the right amount of edge to a jacket or pant without making you feel like a wannabe biker chick.

The jacket by the new Jbrand Ready-to-Wear line is on the top on lust list.  

This jacket by ASOS is a much more affordable way to wear this trend and I like the pockets too.

R13 to me is the final word in cool denim, but with a $795 price tag these leather legged pants may not be the most practical but that's not really the point now, is it?
