A few months ago I received a top from Le Tote with leather sleeves. It wasn't one of my favorite tops from Le Tote, but there were elements I really liked. First of all the leather sleeves are of course awesome, but the elastic cuffs on the Le Tote one made it look like a sweatshirt especially combined with the jersey material (and reminded me a little of a garbage bag). I also liked the gray and black combination because it goes with everything from colors, to casual, to dressy. I wanted a top that was more fitted though because the super relaxed fit felt a little sloppy on me. When I found this one from Elite99 I was sold! It was more fitted, had the leather sleeves I wanted, and better yet, the gray material is a soft gray knit. The pocket and shoulder detail in leather made it even better! Oh, and it was waaaaay cheaper than the one from LeTote. If you are thinking about getting it, I would recommend sizing up though. I am wearing a medium and it fits me perfectly. I think it just goes to show you that you don't always have to pay more for exactly what you want!

  7. You just reminded me that I have a top hanging in my closet with sleeves that are different from the body of it. Why haven't I worn that thing yet? I love how you've styled this look - great hat and scarf!

  8. Yes! Agreed! You don't always have to pay more for exactly what you want! I am a firm believer in that philosophy. When the right one comes along, it just does, and it's more than likely at the right price point!

    Love this sweater/sweatshirt/awesome top on you. The mixed media is pretty darn fantastic.

  23. You look adorable, Laura! I love the hat, and (of course) the leo print scarf! Fab. T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  24. I love the leather sleeve details, and it looks like you made the right choice to send back the le tote top. Anything that makes you think 'garbage bag' is never good. I think that should just be a rule.

  25. That top is so cute. I am looking for something with a leather detail also. And your new marsala hat is beautiful on you. =)
