AJ Wears :: Lace & Leather Shorts

While everyone in the world is acting like the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is THE only sale that has ever existed, us 'round these parts were getting hyped about the Dillard's Clearance Sale. It's that special time that comes who-knows-how-often where all items on clearance are an additional 30-40% off. I found myself in the contemporary section on Thursday holding about six different leather items, trying to decide HOW MUCH leather is too much. The sales associate helping me assured me there was no such thing - she confessed to owning over half of the items I was considering herself.

She made the sale in the end by convincing me leather was in again for fall. What can I say? I love a little edge and these were basically free.
