Fashion repeats itself in a cycle. This fall, very gladly, the military trend is back. HUGE comeback. A glance at Zara and you'll notice camouflage prints, studs and leather. 

Three years ago, Rihanna looked tough as a lion with guns and helmets in her 'Hard' music video. Just recently, even Katy Perry was seen gearing up in 'Part of Me'. There is a certain appeal when women deck themselves in clothes that were once meant for tough men.

As a student, it is way beyond my budget to buy a brand new camo shirt with spiked shoulders. I found this second hand one for about $10. No fancy embellishment or other nonsense - keeping things classy and simple! I figured that embellished 'basics' tend to look outdated very quickly.

I love leather skirts so much and when it comes to those, the simpler the better. I love the way leather skirts stay structured as you move in them. This particular one I'm wearing is high-waisted with a hidden zip at the back. The leather skirt is probably going be worn a lot by me this fall! I can already picture in my head how great it'll look with blazers, denim jackets, wool knits and crisp white shirts... Possibilities are endless.

I want to give one of you a piece of the leather skirt too! Now here's the catch:
Since I'm a night owl, I love spending late nights snuggling in bed with a good movie. Please recommend me some of your favourite movies!
