The Helmut Lang leather leggings




Leather pants/leggings - Helmut Lang
Black tweed jacket - Zara
Black tee - T by Alexander Wang
Ambush boots - Topshop (old)

I've been a bad, bad blogger. Two weeks in Portugal and I forget all about the blog, but on my defence my holidays have been too good for words... Unfortunately they are coming to an end, but the good thing is that I will have time for the blog again (-sad face-).

This is an outfit from Brussels, the day before we left on holidays. It's so hot in Portugal that I can hardly imagine wearing leather pants anytime soon but I trust that the pre-Fall weather in Brussels will allow me to do it before I can even imagine.

Here I was wearing my dream pants. Do you know what is lusting over something for years and then one day realising that you bought it ? That's basically what happened to me, after long months of stalking ebay for a "great" deal on Helmut Lang leather leggings I did manage to win a bid on a pair of these in my size. For a while I thought that this was unreal (how was I lucky enough to get them at half price and in mint condition !??), afterwards I started to worry and thinking that I would never receive them as this seemed to good to be true. I hear all these bad experiences about ebay and this was the first time that I ordered something expensive so I worried, for weeks. Anyway, to tell the story short, I bought these on ebay, I did receive them and I'm super happy. The leather is fantastic, extra soft and super comfortable. It's even thin enough to be worn in the Belgian Summer (but obviously not during the Portuguese one as I'm literally melting when I'm writing this post by the pool in a tiny bikini- oops, there I said it).

If I had to give them a bad review on something it would have to be length, they are too long for my height, but that's not really the pants fault. For the rest, I'll give these 5 stars all the way !!!

Sorry for the long absence (two weeks it's years in bloggers time), I promise to be back next week !

Have a greaaaaaaat summer weekend !!!

xx Marta

  5. I'd love to raid your wardrobe! As I've mentioned via Twitter, I love everything you've got on. I hope you've had plenty of sun while you were away because it's dark and cloudy for those who live closer to the northern part of Europe.
