Perfectionism is nice, as it drives me forward. Yet it is annoying too as nothing is ever quite good enough.. But this time I think I snagged it, the perfect leather trousers. Below the knee, but not too long or too short. Laces down the side so I can expand a bit. Superdelicious soft leather. The model I have down to perfection finallypossiblyI think..

How I adore this floral leather, not too sweet yet very cute Still needs a cord or strap or something, not sure what to use yet.
