It was almost a year ago exactly when we covered the leather shorts trend. However, over the last year, the styles and options have grown quite a bit. Quilted, speckled, high-waisted and low, leather shorts are showing up everywhere this fall — and everyone has a different opinion of them.
It appears there is no middle ground with leather shorts — they just don’t have a “meh-ness” to them. We’ve heard everything from “fug” to “love” to “They look good on models.” I love the way Annika would style them: “I’m so team leather shorts…
I do like the idea of leather shorts worn with tights and super sexy platforms during the winter. I’d wear a pair with a blazer or anorak.
” Kate and Simcha both love the idea of leather, but they’d rather stay in the skirt realm. Me? I love ‘em so much I went out and grabbed a pair. Styled them with a sheer shirt buttoned all the way up and a hard shouldered blazer; and you know what? My man loves them. What do YOU think?

I’ve thought a lot about retailers who create charity products to aid crises or support foundations, and I honestly can’t decide whether consumerism and charity—both for shoppers and retailers—is a good or bad thing.

As consumers, when we’re swayed to purchase these items, are we being irresponsible for not offering our financial support directly? Or are we aiding causes that we wouldn’t have otherwise made contributions to? Keep reading »
This past payday, I was as excited about having the funds to bring home this season’s faux fur vest as I was about skimming 10 percent off the top and watching our savings account increase. And I have to admit, I’m pretty proud of myself for being responsible enough to make that deposit regularly – so proud of myself that I felt totally justified buying that snuggle-worthy vest. (The fact that it’s faux fur? You can’t get any more guilt-free.)
Maybe you’re like me, and you get a sense of accomplishment every time you make that deposit in your savings account. But we all work hard for our money … is just putting some of it aside making it work hard enough for us? Before you get too proud of yourself for being a savings queen, read this advice from Susan Hirshman, president of SHE LTD, a consulting firm focused on enhancing the financial literacy of women.

Just because we shop at stores like Forever 21, H&M, and the Gap doesn’t mean we have to look like it. Each of The Frisky ladies is putting her own stamp on pieces purchased from mass retailers. Yeah, we know there might be hundreds, if not thousands, of women walking around with some of these exact items, but we bet they’re not wearing them like us. Celebrate your personal style and tell us what you’re wearing today.
